Guidelines for Camera Ready Papers

Preparing the final version of your paper, it is important that you address all relevant critical comments of reviewers.

The IEEE templates are the same as for initial submissions.

All camera-ready papers should be in PDF 1.7 format or higher and fonts must be embedded and submitted via EDAS. Please log in into EDAS, and click "copyright" in the row with your paper. Complete the copyright form and begin uploading the final version of your paper. To help ensure a smooth and accurate PDF submission process, we suggest you add the following guidelines to the final submission page of the conference website. Thus, the authors will be aware of these guidelines and make the necessary changes before submitting their final paper. For final manuscripts:

  • if you are using Microsoft Word, then use its most current version, as it will help reduce word-to-pdf conversion issues such as embedded fonts, bookmarks, etc
  • no page numbers and no headers/footers
  •  a non-zero PDF top and bottom margins (typically, at least 0.5 inches) to help indicate if there are any page numbers.

If you're informed about errors in your PDF file, hints for fixing a given problem can be found here.

All papers are allocated up to six A4 pages in the IEEE conference proceedings. You can submit up to two more A4 pages, but this carries an extra charge of AUD100 per page. Papers exceeding eight pages will NOT be accepted by EDAS.

The deadline for the camera-ready submission is 1st October 2015.

As stated on the Registration page, authors of papers accepted for ATNAC 2015 should also remember that:

  • Publication of each paper (regardless whether the paper is authored by a student or non-student) has to be secured by at least one full standard conference registration fee paid by its authors.
  • The IEEE reserves the right to exclude paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Please see the No-Show Policy for details.

The conference publication chair is Dr Mark Gregory (<>)

Preparing your Presentation for ATNAC 2015

Please ensure you nominate the presenter in EDAS and upload your presentation to EDAS prior to the conference.

Sessions have been planned to allow 25 minutes per presentation. 18 - 20 minutes are allocated for the delivery and 5 - 7 minutes for Q & A discussions and changeovers. Please plan your presentation to fit these parameters. PowerPoint or pdf delivery will be acceptable, for normal delivery of a talk we would expect your talk to consist of at most about 15 - 18 slides:

The following is an extract from a series of 4 booklets prepared by the IEEE to guide it's members in preparation of technical presentations, it contains some useful hints:

"An introduction, opening, body and conclusion comprise the four major parts of a successful presentation. The introduction sets up your presentation by identifying the tone of your message, highlighting the importance of the subject matter and establishing your credibility. The opening provides a preview of the presentation by drawing the audience’s attention to your presentation, conveying your core message and defining an outline of the upcoming points. The body is the heart of your presentation.

The body defines your main points with appropriate, detail and supporting material. The body may incorporate rhetorical devices while maintaining a focus on simple, clear language to maximize comprehension.

Finally, the conclusion summarizes your core message, recaps your main points and challenges the audience to take action.

With these four components, you can create effective presentations to persuade, inform or share information."
