Camera-ready papers submission

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

The deadline is Aug. 15, 2016.



For all papers

For any reason, we do not allow any change of authors from the first submitted paper. Note that any paper with modified authors cannot be published.



Please follow the below steps to complete your camera-ready submission.


Step 1: REVISION Revise your manuscript based on reviewers’ 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, please check again the paper format described on "manuscript guidelines". Especially, make sure that your paper can not exceed 6 double-column pages for Technical papers and 4 double-column pages for Short papers in the above format. The papers that were submitted to technical session but accepted as short papers have to be shortened to 4 pages at maximum.


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 "38748X" (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 eXpress for further detail and other formats.

 If validation succeeded, you would receive the validated PDF file which labeled as ‘Certified by IEEE PDF eXpress’ in document properties.

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

(1) Validated PDF file of your camera-ready manuscript, upload under "Camera-ready paper manuscript" on JEMS site for your paper. You need to confirm that the PDF file has the document properties labeled as ‘Certified by IEEE PDF eXpress at date time stamp’.

(2) COPYRIGHT TRANSFER AGREEMENT. You can download DOC or PDF version from APNOMS 2016 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 "IEICE COPYRIGHT TRANSFER AGREEMENT" on JEMS.

(3) Information sheet for IEICE I-SCOVER. You can download CSV version from APNOMS 2016 page. You need type or copy/paste the title, abstract and keywords of your manuscript into the sheet. Upload CSV under "Information sheet for IEICE I-Scover" on JEMS.


Upload deadline is Aug. 15 2016.

For INNOVATION Session Papers

Authors should format their manuscript as slide-and-notes presentations with 20 pages at maximum. 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 2016 homepage (Manuscript Guidelines) and can be used as example. Remember that PPT files have to be converted to PDF before uploading them on JEMS.

Some papers were accepted as Innovation session papers even if they have been submitted to the technical session with a technical paper format, which is compliant with IEEE conference proceeding. In this case, the authors 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.

After you prepare the PDF file, you can upload the final version under “Camera-ready paper manuscript” on JEMS site. You may want to revise the content of your manuscript based on reviewers' comments. Use the same format for upload.

Note that Innovation papers are NOT published in I-Scover nor IEEE Xplore, but published in APNOMS 2016 electronic proceedings. Authors retain the copyright to their papers. Copyright Transfer Agreement should NOT be submitted.

Upload deadline is Aug. 15 2016.
