You should upload your camera-ready paper online through JEMS:

The deadline is Sep. 7 2012.




Please follow the below steps to complete your CR submission.


STEP 1: REVISION Revise your manuscript based on reviewer's comments. Some reviewers are very specific in pointing out what can be improved in your paper. You should read those comments and revise your manuscript accordingly. When you make your camera-ready version, make sure that your paper does not exceed 8 double-column pages for Technical Papers and 4 double-column pages for Short Papers in the above format. Short Paper authors have to shorten their papers to 4 pages max.


STEP 2: PDF VALIDATION You need to validate your PDF using If you do not yet have an account with this service, you should create one (it is free). When asked for Conference ID, enter "apnoms12x" (without the quotes). Upload your camera-ready manuscript in one of many formats supported by the service and download your validated PDF when ready. IEEE eXpress can read the following formats:

(1) Microsoft Word, eXpress will convert it into the validated version of PDF.

(2) PS (postscript), eXpress will convert them without a problem

(3) ZIP file containing DVI file plus EPS files for graphics, eXpress will render them and output PDF for you

... you can read instructions at IEEE eXplore for further detail and other formats.


STEP 3: UPLOAD When you succeed in validating your manuscript, you can start uploading your files. You need to upload the following 2 files:

(1) validated PDF file of your camera-ready manuscript, upload under "Paper Manuscript" on JEMS paper for your paper.

(2) IEEE Copyright Agreement. You can download DOC or PDF version from IEEE Copyright page. You need to fill it out and sign it. Electronic signatures are not allowed, so you probably need to sign and scan it to make the final PDF. Upload this PDF under "IEEE Copyright Agreement" on JEMS.

Upload deadline is Sep. 7 2012.

Authors should format their manuscript as slide-and-notes presentations. Each page of the manuscript should be split into upper and lower halves, upper half given to a presentation slide and lower half to textual description of the slide. A PPT SAMPLE can be downloaded from APNOMS 2012 homepage (Submission Guideline) and can be used as example. Remember that PPT files have to be converted to PDF before uploading them on JEMS.

Some paper submitted their paper to the technical session with a technical paper format, which is compliant with IEEE conference proceeding. However they are accepted as an Innovation session paper. If your paper is in this case, you have to convert your paper format from IEEE conference format to the above slide-and-notes presentation format. I am sorry for asking your special attention in format conversion.

You may want to revise the content of your manuscript based on reviewers' comments. Use the same format for upload. Upload as PDF file using JEMS.

Innovation papers are not published in IEEE Xplore but published in APNOMS 2012 electronic proceeding and use a simpler format. Authors retain copyright to their papers IEEE Copyright Agreement should not be submitted.

Although there is no official page limit to Innovation Papers, one should probably reasonably stay within about 12 pages.

Upload deadline is Sep. 7 2012.
