Author Instructions
Camera-Ready Versions At a Glance

We would like to emphasize that the following must be ensured by April 15, 2009, in order for your paper to be included in the conference proceedings.

  1. The recommended format must be used (see Formatting
    Instructions
    below).

  2. IEEE PDF compliance must be checked at the IEEE PDF Xpress web site, and a proof of this must be provided (see Requirements for creating PDF Documents below).
  3. The camera-ready version of the paper must be submitted (see Submission Instructions below).
  4. The IEEE Copyright Form must be submitted (see IEEE Copyright Form below).
  5. At least one author must be registered to WoWMoM 2009 with a full registration status.

Please note that unless these conditions are met, we will not be able to include your paper in the conference proceedings or in IEEE Xplore®.

Also, please note that failure to present the paper in the conference can result in excluding it from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore).

Formatting Instructions for Camera-Ready Versions

Format and templates

Camera-ready version of papers must be submitted as PDF files. A complete description of the fonts, spacing, and related information for producing the camera-ready version of your paper is available at the following URL: ftp://pubftp.computer.org/press/outgoing/proceedings/instruct8.5x11.pdf . You are requested to strictly comply with the format specified therein. A simple and effective way to ensure this is to make use of the available 8.5" x 11", two-column format MS Word or LaTeX templates.

Page limits

There are six different types of papers: regular, short, industry track, workshop and demo . Page limits differ depending on the type of paper and are as follows:

  • regular papers: 9 pages
  • short papers: 6 pages
  • industry track papers: 8 pages
  • workshop papers: 6 pages
  • demo papers: 3 pages

Maximum page count includes all text, figures, tables, and references. The number of pages can be increased by contributing with an overlength charge of 100 Euro for each additional page exceeding the respective limit. We strictly allow for two extra pages at most for regular papers, and one extra page at most for short, industry track, workshop and demo papers.

Copyright information

The following Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) code must be placed on the bottom, left-hand side of the first page of each paper:
978-1-4244-4439-7/09/$25.00 2009 IEEE

The first page of your paper should look like this sample one.

For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, Australia), the notice is:`
978-1-4244-4439-7/09/$25.00 2009 Crown

For Latex users, the CCC code can be added using the following:

1. First, use package command: \usepackage{eso-pic}

2. Then, use the following command (everything in one line): \AddToShipoutPicture*{\small \sffamily\raisebox{1.8cm}{\hspace{1.8cm}978-1-4244-4439-7/09/\$25.00 \copyright2009 IEEE}}

Requirements for creating PDF Documents for IEEE Xplore®

Individual PDFs must be prepared according to the IEEE PDF specification for IEEE Xplore® ( http://www.ieee.org/portal/pages/pubs/confstandards/pdfs.html).

IEEE PDF eXpress is a customized web site that can help WoWMoM authors either generate an IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF file, or submit their own PDF for compatibility testing. Prior to submitting your final paper, you must visit IEEE PDF eXpress to either:

  • Convert your paper from a wide range of application formats to IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs
  • Check existing PDFs to find out if it is IEEE Xplore-compatible (and how to fix it)

To check PDFs for IEEE Xplore compatibility, please go to the IEEE PDF eXpress site at www.pdf-express.org , click on the link "New Users - Click Here" and fill in your information. You will need the Conference ID which is: <wowmom09x>

In order to prove that PDF Check has been passed, you must forward the confirmation mail received from the IEEE PDF eXpress service to Dirk.Kutscher [at] nw.neclab.eu. This must be done for all types of papers( regular, short, industry-track, workshop, demo).

Finally, please note that IEEE PDF eXpress is not a manuscript-collection system and is not intended to replace the conference's submission system. Once you verify that you have an IEEE Xplore-compatible version of your manuscripts, you have to follow the submission instructions below.
