Steps of Final Paper Submission
Final versions of accepted papers are required to pass the compatibility test in IEEE PDF eXpress. It will allow you to convert your MS Word™, LaTeX™, or range of other source files into IEEE Xplore® compatible files. You must use PDF eXpress to check your own PDF files for compatibility. Please follow the following steps to make sure your file is compliant with IEEE Xplore®:
- Go to the IEEE PDF eXpress website at https://ieee-pdf-express.org/
- Click on ‘Create Account’ to create your own IEEE PDF eXpress account for MFI 2021 using Conference ID: 52462X. If you have used IEEE PDF eXpress before, the system will recognize you as an existing user, but you still need to set up your account for MFI 2021.
- Upload source file(s) for conversion and/or PDF(s) for checking. The site contains extensive instructions, resources, helpful hints, and access to technical support.
- Proofread the generated PDF file thoroughly. There could be missing symbols, equations, graphs, and also reported errors. Please update the source file and repeat the conversion again. If the problem persists, please use the online help provided on the IEEE PDF eXpress site.
