Submission for Review (Finished)
conference is accepting submissions. Submissions
unpublished research and not be currently under review by another
journal or conference. Both extended abstracts and full papers are
welcome. For extended abstracts, the length should not be longer than 2
pages, and for full papers, not more than 5 pages (in IEEE two-column
format, 10pt). All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed for their
quality, correctness, originality and relevance. Accepted
papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE
and be included
in IEEE Xplore digital
and MS-Word templates for
ISWCS'07 are available here: [LaTeX Template] [MS-Word
must be submitted electronically via ISWCS'07 at TrackChair.
Paper Submission Guidelines
The final camera-ready paper must be in PDF format. The
paper length (for both oral presentation and poster presentation)
should not be longer than 5 pages. (Over length charge will be applied
to each extra page. See Registration page
for detail.) The camera-ready paper submission process for ISWCS'07
involves several steps that both oral presentation and poster
presentation papers must follow:
- Prepare the camera-ready paper according to the
required format. It is highly recommended to use the IEEE format style
LaTex and MS-Word templates available here: [LaTeX Template] [MS-Word Template].
- Convert it to an IEEE Xplore compatible file using
IEEE PDF eXpress: http://22.214.171.124/pdfexpress/log.asp.
The conference ID for using it is: iswcs07.
(For details about IEEE Xplore compatible PDF format, one may find
Specification for IEEE Xplore.)
- Register to the conference.
- Upload the IEEE Xplore compatible paper to TrackChair
where you submitted for review a few months ago. (Notice: Failure to
provide the PDF file compatible with IEEE Xplore may result in your
paper not being included in IEEE Xplore.)
- Fill in and submit your copyright form.
You must complete all the above steps prior to the
deadline of 9 August 2007. Failure to do so may result in your paper
being withdrawn from the conference or not being included in IEEE
The following are the detailed instructions on these
1. PREPARE YOUR PAPER
It is important that you conform strictly to the paper
format to ensure compliance with the IEEE guidelines and speedy
publication of your paper on IEEE Xplore. If your submission does not
conform to the guidelines, or if
you are unable to update your paper in time to meet the publication
deadline, it will not be published or not be included in IEEE Xplore..
Templates are provided here
for Microsoft Word and here
for LaTeX. These templates were generated for the
conference from IEEE templates that may can be found here.
The maximum allowed page length for (both oral
presentation and poster presentation) camera-ready paper is 5. (Extra
pages may be added but this is subject to an over length charge paid.)
You must use a page size corresponding to A4 which is
8.27 inch (210mm) wide and 11.69 inch (297mm) long. The margins must be
set as follows:
- Top margin: 0.75 inch (19 mm)
- Bottom margin: 1.69 inch (43 mm)
- Side margins: 0.56 inch (14.32 mm)
The paper must be in two column format with a space of
0.17 inch (4.22mm) between columns.
The preferred font is Times New Roman. Regular
manuscript text should be 10-point type. Minimum point size for all
text (including text in graphics and tables) is 4 points. The following
fonts are also acceptable:
- Arial MT
- Courier, Bold Italic
- Arial MT, Italic
- Arial MT, Bold
- Times New Roman PS MT
- Arial MT, Bold Italic
- Times New Roman PS MT, Italic
- Times New Roman PS MT, Bold
- Courier, Italic
- Times New Roman PS MT, Bold Italic
- Courier, Bold
Use only these fonts to provide a consistent look to all
the papers in the proceedings. If you must use fonts other than those
listed, they must be either PostScript or TrueType. Use of custom-made
or hacked fonts is strictly prohibited.
Vector graphics are preferred for diagrams as they
convert well to PDF. Take care that font sizes in diagrams do not go
below 4 pt. Bitmapped images should be 300 dots per inch (dpi) at the
size they appear in your paper. Images below this resolution will not
render well in print; images above will be down-sampled, but since
doing this during PDF conversion does not produce the best results, you
are advised to supply them at 300dpi. Do not use custom halftones
(photographs) and pattern fills - these can cause problems for PDF
conversion. Also, do not select "Smooth Graphics". This option often
produces extremely large files that will take a long time to display
and print. The Smooth Graphics option is usually found in the Page
Setup Dialog box in Macintosh applications and some Windows
2. CONVERT IT TO AN IEEE Xplore COMPATIBLE FILE
The final camera-ready paper must be in PDF format. We
will use an IEEE tool, IEEE PDF eXpress, to ensure submitted files are
Xplore-compatible. This will allow you to convert your Word, LaTeX, or
range of other source files into IEEE Xplore compatible PDF files. (This
option is preferred.)
Alternatively, you can use PDF eXpress to check
your own PDF files for compatibility.
Once your manuscript is ready, please go to the
which is now open to ISWCS'07 authors, using "iswcs07"
for the Conference ID:http://126.96.36.199/pdfexpress/log.asp
Only after you have converted your file or have checked
the compatibility of your PDF file using PDF eXpress, should then you
upload the camera-ready paper to the TrackChair.
3. REGISTER TO THE CONFERENCE
Please go to the Registration page
to find more information about the registration and the Hotel Arrangement
page for information about hotels and hotel booking.
4. UPLOAD YOUR PAPER TO THE SUBMISSION SITE
The checked IEEE Xplore-compatible camera-ready paper
should be submitted to ISWCS'07 at TrackChair. where
the paper was initially submitted for review.
It is important that you have checked the IEEE
Xplore-compatibility of your final paper. Failure to do so may result
in your paper not included in IEEE Xplore!!!
5. FILL OUT YOUR COPYRIGHT FORM
The copyright form may be submitted electronically. The
Electronic IEEE Copyright
Form will be made available. Please come back to find the corresponding
All the above steps must be completed
prior to the corresponding deadlines.
Failure to do so may result in your paper
