Instructions for authors - Final paper preparation

Dear Authors,

Please note that the accepted papers will be submitted to IEEEXplore Digital Library, but only if they fulfill conditions which are listed at the bottom of this page.

If your paper has been accepted by the TPC, submit the final version until 17 July 2022.


Final paper

Upon acceptance of the review version of your paper, you will be asked to submit a final version, where you have a chance to take into account reviewers’ comments. Your final paper version should be uploaded to the paper management system before the deadline announced in the “important dates” section.

The final paper length is limited to 6 pages maximum.

The use of the publication template is mandatory for acceptance of your publication into IEEE Xplore. Before submitting the final paper, please make sure that:

  • you have chosen the correct files and settings for an A4 page size and conference paper.
  • the pdf file is IEEE Xplore-compatible and has been checked with IEEE PDF eXpress service.


MIKON/IRS formatting requirements

Please follow strictly the templates from

The correct format for the Paper Title is non-bold, non-italic and uses the “paper title” style in MS Word. Please check this before you attempt to upload the paper.

LaTeX users: do not forget to switch to “A4” paper size – put in the header:


(note “a4paper”!).

Copyright stamp

Copyright text will be stamped automatically on all papers. You do not need to do it by yourself. Please delete the “XXX-XXX….” page footer form the MSWord template. Upload copyright form as a separate document (see bottom section of this page).

  1. Being PDF 1.4 (Acrobat 5) or later but not Acrobat 9.
