Final Paper Submission Guidelines

All final submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with overlength page charge of USD100 if accepted). Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted at EDAS.
When preparing your final manuscript, please pay also attention to the following:
  • If your paper has been prepared using Microsoft Word, please ensure that you have used the most current version which will help reduce word-to-pdf conversion issues such as embedded fonts, bookmarks, etc.
  • No page numbers and no headers/footers
  • Use non-zero PDF top and bottom margins (typically at least 0.5 inches/12.7 mm) to help indicate if there are any page numbers. 
Final papers upload via EDAS:
Authors would use the upload link (file folder icon) at "My papers" on EDAS. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid and the standard IEEE copyright transfer form must be completed and uploaded prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. In order to upload your paper you are required to provide your registration confirmation number and adding "16ICC" at the end of it.

Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX formats are found here:
You can also use the sample template for Microsoft Word: A4, US letter.

Please contact Publication Chair Mahamod Ismail ( if you have any questions about submitting your manuscripts.
