Format the final version of your paper

Please read the reviews and follow the reviewers’ recommendations for revising your final paper. To guarantee good quality proceedings contents, your paper must comply with the IEEE SOLI 2021 paper specifications, in particular:

  1. DO NOT page number your manuscript.
  2. DO NOT apply security settings to your PDF file.

Use of PDF eXpress®

To publish papers in IEEE Xplore, it is mandatory to check compliance of the manuscript files using the PDF eXpress® tool. Please use this tool to check your paper and directly upload the eXpress® generated PDF to the publisher. To do so, please follow the steps and  instructions provided at IEEE PDF eXpress®. Please note that the Conference ID is 54607X. After the compliance check is passed, please do not forget to click the “Approve” button (the second icon under the “Action” column) to submit the generated PDF to the publisher.

Be aware that creating an IEEE PDF eXpress® account and converting or checking the source file may take some time and should not be done at the last minute.
