PDF eXpress

Make sure you added the correct copyright notice and proof-read your paper carefully so that no further changes are required. IEEE PDF eXpress can either be used to create an IEEE Xplore-compatible paper from source files or check an existing PDF document. However, any changes made to the PDF after IEEE PDF eXpress conversion or checking may invalidate the PDF. Papers not compatible with IEEE Xplore will not be included in the proceedings. To validate your paper, visit the IEEE PDF eXpress page and use either your existing account or create a new one. The conference ID is 45439X. After logging in, use ‘Create New Title’ for each of your papers and follow the instructions. Once the paper passed the validation upload the PDF eXpress-signed PDF EDAS.
