In order to finalize the submission process, all authors of accepted papers (oral or poster) must accomplish the following two stages:
Stage 1: Prepare the following files:
1 – A one-page conference Digest slide (a .tex file)
2 – A descriptive figure representative of your contribution (a 300×300 pixel .jpg file)
3 – Final formatted file of the paper approved by PDF Express (a *.pdf file)
4- Final formatted file of the paper (a *.docx file)
Below you can find details of each required document.
In order to give the participants of ICROM a fast overview of the contents of the conference, a book of Digests will be published and distributed at the conference, as the proceedings. Each page of the book contains four digest slides, which should be prepared by the papers’ authors. Note that the slides are NOT Microsoft PowerPoint files, and since the book will be compiled automatically using the LaTeX word processing program, the authors must submit their slides in .tex format, according to the following instructions:
Step 1. Prepare a .tex file in LaTeX format, including the names, affiliations, the paper’s title, and research highlights. The name of the file should be the same as your paper code (e.g., 123.tex). Note that: (1) authors must fill their full names instead of initials; (2) Do not delete the percent signs (%) at the end of the lines in the input file; (3) In the input file, “Targets” are not the abstract of the paper; they are just highlights (important findings) of the research. You can access a sample .tex file here:
Step 2. Prepare a descriptive figure in .jpg that is relevant to your research. The file must be square-sized, with a resolution of no more than 300×300 pixels. The name of the file should be the same as your paper code (e.g., 123.jpg).
Step 3. Everyone has to submit their final paper surely through PDF express. The final file saved on this site will be indexed by IEEE Xplore, if you register and present your paper at the conference. The instructions for this step is:
1- Go to https://ieee-pdf-express.org/account/Login website
2- Enter : 54204X for conference ID, an Email Address, and a password
3- Continue to enter info. as prompted
Save the approved pdf file and include that in your file submission at EasyChair.
Stage 2: A final stage of submission is to transfer your copyright electronically.
Step 4. An email will be sent to the corresponding author of each paper, automatically before the date of the conference. The form shall be signed electronically within the system. Note, if more than one author is assigned as the corresponding author, only one has to sign the form electronically.
Step 5. Poster Presentations:
Authors of papers accepted as posters should also prepare a poster for exhibiting their work at the conference. Posters must be color printed on A1 (841mm height x 594.5mm width) papers and presented virtually in poster presentation site. Posters must convey the essence of the presented work in an informative and visually attractive way. Some tips for preparing posters are provided in this file or this link.
