Please note that for each accepted contribution, at least one author has to register for the ISPLC 2005 before submitting the camera-ready paper.
In the case of multiple accepted papers by the same author(s), one registration can be used for at most two papers.
Papers must be written in English and should preferably follow the instructions in template.pdf using IEEEtran.cls (zip)(tar.gz)
from ieee.org. Use the USltr.doc author's template for Microsoft Word.
Note that documents should be formatted for standard letter-size (8-1/2" by 11") paper.
The maximum paper length is 5 printed pages (10-point font) including figures.
ISPLC 2005 has registered for use of a new IEEE author tool: PDFeXpress.
The new IEEE XploreŽ Requirements for PDF will be enforced as of 2005. All conference articles submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore must be in Xplore-compatible PDF format.
IEEE offers PDF eXpress as a free service to IEEE conference authors, allowing them to make Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs authors have made themselves for Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).
PDF eXpress converts the following file types to PDF:
Rich Text Format
(La)TeX (DVI and all support files required)*
*For documents created in formats that do not embed source files, include all support files with the final manuscript in a folder. Put this folder in a compressed archive for submission. If it is possible to embed images in the source document, you should do so to avoid potential issues, such as missing graphics.
Important: A DVI (DeVice Independent file) is required for LaTeX conversions, in addition to all associated image files. Make sure that your LaTeX system can output a DVI, otherwise it cannot be converted. Be sure also to check that your images are properly referenced, and that DVI can handle the image file types used (DVI does not handle some newer image types, such as *.png).
