Final Version Guidelines

IEEE policy requires that prior to publication all authors or their employers must transfer to the IEEE in writing any copyright they hold for their individual papers. An authorized author of each IMOC 2015 paper should digitally sign the Electronic IEEE Copyright Form (one for each paper), which should be accessed via EDAS in the copyright form field. Upon completion an e-mail will be sent to the paper authors with a signed copyright receipt, for their own records. The copyright data is stored (only) on the IEEE server and there is no need (and no way) to download or upload forms.
Final version preparations and upload:
The authors of accepted papers to IMOC 2015 should upload the final version by 30th August 2015. The upload of a new IEEE pdf express compatible file is mandatory, and it must be done in EDAS.
The final version should address the possible comments and recommendations from the reviewers and it MUST include the copyright notice to the bottom (in the footer, on the left side) of the first page of each paper.
