The procedures to submit a final copy of an accepted paper are explicitly outlined below. Please follow the instructions step by step very carefully to assure your paper will be included in the conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore database.

 

1. By way of your acceptance email originated from the program chair, authors are provided with written comments from the peer reviewers. This effort is intended to improve your paper in its technical quality and presentation. All comments should be addressed thoroughly, as acceptance is conditional upon appropriate responses to the reviewers' comments. Authors must be aware of and comply with IEEE policy against multiple duplicate submissions. Manuscripts found to be duplicated elsewhere will be immediately withdrawn from the conference proceedings.

 

2. IEEE has very stringent requirements for the papers to be included in the IEEE Xplore system. Authors are asked to carefully examine their paper to ensure that it is IEEE Xplore compliant.

 
3. FUZZ-IEEE 2009 has registered the use of an IEEE tool: IEEE PDF eXpress. IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to all IEEE conferences that allows their authors to generate IEEE Xplore-compliant PDFs or to check PDFs that authors have created themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility. Prior to submitting your final paper, please check acceptability of your paper at IEEE PDF eXpress. Instruction on how to use this service is given here.
 

4. Following the instructions given in the email you received from the Program Chair, submit your paper accordingly, using the newly assigned password. Note you are allowed to submit your final camera-ready paper only ONCE and you cannot submit any subsequent revision. Final papers MUST be submitted by June 1, 2009. Any papers submitted after this date run the risk of not being included in the conference proceedings. The paper must be re-submitted even if the reviewers indicated that no changes are required.

 

5. When you submit your final version through the Paper Submission System, please make sure the TITLE, AUTHORSHIP, and ABSTRACT are entered EXACTLY in the system as written in the paper. Incorrect entries will result in papers being listed incorrectly in the Final Program.

 

6. In order for your paper to be published in the conference proceedings, a signed IEEE Copyright Form must be submitted for each paper. FUZZ-IEEE 2009 has registered to use the IEEE electronic Copyright Form (eCF) service. The confirmation page shown after submitting your final paper contains a button linking directly to a secure IEEE eCF site which allows electronic completion of the copyright assignment process. In case it fails, please have the completed IEEE Copyright Form, found at http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/rights/copyrightmain.html faxed to the General Chair, Hong Tae Jeon, at +82-2-571-2721.

 

7. The deadline for author registration with accepted paper(s) is June 1, 2009. If you register late, your paper may not appear in the proceedings. An accepted paper will be published in the proceedings only if the final camera-ready version is accompanied with the regular registration and payment by at least one of the authors (only regular registration will be allowed for this purpose). One regular registration will cover the publication of up to two accepted papers. Each additional accepted paper associated with the same registration will be subject to a mandatory publication fee of US$240.
