Then distill it to PDF, for a camera-ready version. Verify that figures and text have not moved around, and that other aspects are rendered as you intend. Then upload your final paper to the EasyChair website (link above). To do this, login to the author centre ‘My submissions for IEEE SiPS 2018’ and select the ‘information’ link for each of your accepted papers. Then select the ‘Update file’ from the top-right navigation menu and upload your final camera-ready paper.

Final paper submission date 31 July 2018
Author Registration Deadline 1 August 2018
Start of Workshop 21 October 2018

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. In submitting a paper, you warrant that at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the conference. Failure to present will result in the paper not being submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore.

At least one of the authors listed on the paper must register for SiPS 2018 at the full registration (member or non-member — not student/life) rate at the time of uploading the final manuscript — by 1 August 2018.
Each paper must be presented in person or the paper will not be published in the Proceedings. We prefer that authors present their own papers and answer questions except under unavoidable circumstances.

* Extra-Length Papers:
Any paper longer than 6 pages will incur a $100/page charge for each page over 6.
