# Instructions for Symposium Final Paper Upload

## INSTRUCTIONS FOR FINAL CAMERA-READY MANUSCRIPTS

After you have registered and paid in full for the conference, please follow the instructions below to prepare your final paper and upload it. As a reminder, one (1) registration can be used to upload up to three (3) final papers on which you are an author.

PLEASE NOTE: A REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION CODE CAN BE ASSOCIATED ONLY TO PAPER(S) IN WHICH THE REGISTRANT IS AN AUTHOR OR CO-AUTHOR. VIOLATION OF THIS RULE, SUCH AS ASSOCIATING A REGISTRATION CODE WITH A PAPER NOT AUTHORED BY THE REGISTRANT, IS CONSIDERED A SERIOUS OFFENSE.

Formatting checks are enforced in the submission phase for final manuscripts. Please allow extra time to fix any formatting errors and use PDF-eXpress to generate a compliant file. Your final paper is planned to be included in IEEEXplore for archival value after the conference. However, IEEE reserves the right to exclude an acceptance paper from inclusion in IEEEXplore if it is not presented at the conference. Please follow the following steps to finalize the camera-ready version of your paper:

1. Prepare in the IEEE double-column format using IEEE Conference Proceeding templates (see also General Formatting Instructions at the bottom of this page).
1. For IEEEtran class in LaTeX, use the following as the first line in your LaTeX source file:
\documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran}
Note that with IEEE conferences, the author affiliation is listed under the author's name, unlike IEEE transactions.
2. DO NOT ADD ANY PAGE NUMBERING, HEADER, OR FOOTER (other than the copyright info discussed below, if applicable).

2. Insert an appropriate copyright notice on the first page (bottom left) as follows:
1. For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
2. For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is:  978-1-6654-3540-6/22/$31.00 ©2022 Crown 3. For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-6654-3540-6/22/$31.00 ©2022 European Union
4. For all other papers the copyright notice is:  978-1-6654-3540-6/22/\$31.00 ©2022 IEEE
5. Latex users can add following lines just before \begin{ document } for the copyright notice to show up (shown below as an example for the fourth case above):
\IEEEoverridecommandlockouts\IEEEpubid{\makebox[\columnwidth]{ 978-1-6654-3540-6/22~\copyright~2022 IEEE \hfill} \hspace{\columnsep}\makebox[\columnwidth]{ }}
6. MSWord users can use: ‘Insert’ -> ‘Text box’, insert the appropriate copyright notice in the textbox, and place the box (without border) at the bottom left on the first page only.

3. Go to IEEE PDF eXpress Website
1. Create an IEEE PDF eXpress account (use conference ID: 48099X)
2. Use 'new user' if you haven't used this site before.
3. Use IEEE PDF eXpress to check if your PDF file is Xplore-compliant, OR, else, you can use this site to convert your source files into an IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF file (e.g., for LaTeX users, create a zip file that includes dvi and your eps figure files all together, and then upload the zip file for the system to convert into a compliant PDF file; for MSWord users, upload the Word file and let it convert and return a compliant PDF file).
4. Download the generated PDF file of your papers.

4. To upload your final paper for inclusion in the GLOBECOM 2022 proceedings, please visit: https://edas.info/
1. You must have your registration confirmation code and EDAS ID as these are required to upload your paper
2. Upload the PDF generated by the IEEE PDF eXpress Website, which is a compliant copy of your camera-ready paper (Do NOT use 'Approve for collection' in PDF eXpress, if requested).
3. Submit your IEEE electronic copyright form by clicking "Submit Copyright" within your author account

### NO-SHOW POLICY:

The organizers of IEEE GLOBECOM 2022 as well as attendees expect accepted papers to be presented at the conference by an author of that paper. Papers which are not presented or presented by a non-author without prior written approval by the Conference TPC Chairs will be removed from the final conference proceedings before publication in IEEE Xplore®. No refund will be made to authors of these papers.
