Using PDF eXpress
to create IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF files
Why you need to use PDF eXpress:

The new IEEE Xplore® Requirements for PDF will be enforced as of 2005. All conference articles submitted to IEEE sponsored conferences must be in IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF format.

IEEE offers PDF eXpress as a free service to IEEE conference authors, allowing you to make Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs you have created yourself for Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

Advantages to authors:
  • It provides a means for you to convert your files to PDF, without requiring you to have access to a conversion program.
  • This conversion is provided in an IEEE Xplore compatible format, without you having to worry about conversion settings.
  • The system emails the converted file back to you, so you can make sure that your contribution is IEEE Xplore compatible and that no unintended corruption occurred.
  • It ensures that your paper views and prints as well as possible in IEEE Xplore.
  • By minimizing the risk of post-processing problems, it reduces the amount of time it will take for your paper to appear on IEEE Xplore.
  • It greatly simplifies the task of conforming to IEEE submission requirements.

 


Steps for creating your Xplore compliant PDF file:
  1. Create your manuscript
  2. Proofread and check layout of manuscript. (It is highly recommended that you do this BEFORE going to PDF eXpress.)
  3. Create PDF eXpress account
  4. Upload source file(s) for Conversion; and/or PDF(s) for Checking
  5. Use PDF eXpress to attain Xplore-compatible PDFs. The site contains extensive instructions, resources, and helpful hints.
  6. IMPORTANT: After finishing with the PDF eXpress web site, return to this website to submit your final, Xplore-compatible PDF(s) on the MMAR 2017 Submission site at http://www.epapers.org/mmar2017.
