Paper Submission Answers
A1. There is a known problem in Internet Explorer when used
with a non-Western character set. Please use another web
browser, such as Firefox, and your problem should be solved.
A2. Final papers and initial submissions share the same
format, as described in the Submission Requirements section.
A3. The IEEE Copyright Release form is completed
electronically (online) when the final manuscript is uploaded.
Initial submissions do not require a copyright release form.
A4. About 1.5% of authors have difficulty producing Xplore
compliant PDFs. In most cases, the software being used does not

be in contact as needed. Volunteer efforts are recorded, and the
conference plans to recognize all volunteers.
