Uploading the Final Version of the paper
The information in EasyChair concerning your paper's title, list of authors and abstract is the one to be used in the ICCP 2018 Book of Abstracts, so please make sure you have updated this information BOTH in EasyChair and in the Camera Ready version of your paper.
Final camera-ready papers should NOT exceed 8 pages and should comply with IEEE formatting (A4 paper size, 210x297mm / 8.27"x11.69", two-column). To make the paper available via the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, it is mandatory that the final PDF file is compatible with IEEE Xplore. This compatibility is described in IEEE PDF Specification for IEEE Xplore.
Once you have modified your paper according to the reviewers comments, make sure the paper's format is A4 with no page numbers.
Please check and bring your references to the standard IEEE format.
After checking the compliance with the IEEE format (see the instructions below), the papers should be uploaded via the EasyChair submission system no later than the due date specified for Camera ready papers.
