The camera ready copy of each submission must strictly adhere to the IEEE formatting instructions to be included in the PerCom 2013 proceedings and the IEEE Digital Library.

a) Formatting your Paper

Please read the following information. It is important to ensure the inclusion of your paper, poster, abstract, or talk in the proceedings and the IEEE Digital Library.

* Word Users

  1. You must use the most current version of Microsoft Word, which will help reduce word-to-pdf conversion issues such as embedded fonts, bookmarks, etc.
  2. You can download an IEEE Conference Microsoft Word template from the IEEE website here.
  3. Be sure to use the US Letter (8-1/2x11 inches) page size.
  4. Please check that your submission adheres to the set page limit for your type of submission (see here).

* LaTeX Users

  1. You can download an IEEE Conference LaTeX template from the IEEE website here.

    \documentclass[10pt, conference, compsocconf]{IEEEtran}.
  3. You MUST use Type 1 fonts for your submission. This means that you need to use the Type1 Postscript Computer Modern (or other) fonts. Check with your systems administrator if these fonts are available. An IEEE compliant PDF file can be generated either with Adobe Distiller (you can find the relevant settings in one of these job option files -- drag-and-drop a .joboptions file onto Distiller) or with ps2pdf (use the following command line options).
