Instructions for preparing final manuscript

Please keep the following in mind while preparing your final manuscripts.

         The manuscript should not exceed SIX double-column pages, with single line spacing, main text font size no smaller than 10 points, and about inch margins (about 18 mm).

         The document must not contain any bookmarks, links (URLs), form fields, PDF annotation. The pdf file should not be a scanned image, encrypted file, or print-only file.

         It should have no content written in the margins. In particular, do not include headers, footers, or page numbers, except for the copyright notice on the first page.

         All fonts should be embedded in the pdf file itself.

         Names and affiliations of all the authors should be included now.

All papers must be submitted on the edas portal

The deadline for submission of final camera-ready manuscript is Monday, June 14, 2021, 23:59 IST. This is the final, hard deadline; there will be NO extensions.

Authors are encouraged to use LaTeX to format their manuscripts. The style file for preparing the final manuscript is available at the following link: IEEE conference templates

 

Instructions for uploading the final manuscript

1.       Please make also sure that the abstract stored in EDAS coincides with the abstract of the final manuscript, as this information will be used to produce the abstract and product booklet.

2.       Complete your registration by filling up this Google form before starting the submission process. At least one author must register by paying the registration fee before the registration deadline of 14th June, 2021. That means, even when only a student author is registering on or before 14th June, 2021, he/she will have to pay the registration fee. If this is not adhered to, the paper will be moved out of the program and will not form part of the proceedings.

3.       The Camera Ready Manuscript must be made IEEE Xplore Compatible by running it through PDF eXpress. Please follow these steps:

o    Add the copyright notice to the first page of the manuscript. See detailed instructions here.

o    Log in to the IEEE PDF eXpress website. If you already have a user account, use your registered email id and password. Otherwise, you will need to create a new account.

o    Use the Conference ID: 52529X

o    Upload the source file for Conversion, and/or PDF for Checking.

o    Use the IEEE PDF eXpress web site to generate an IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF. The site contains instructions, resources, helpful hints, and access to technical support.

o    After getting an IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF, log in to your EDAS account, and go to the page that lists your paper.

o    The next job is to fill the copyright form. Go to the section entitled "Copyright form" and click on the icon. Then click on "IEEE copyright submission" button. This will take you to the IEEE copyright website. Follow the procedure listed there to fill the form.

o    Once this is done, you can go ahead and upload your final manuscript via EDAS, after logging into your EDAS account. In your EDAS home page, click on "My papers" and then click on the paper that you have submitted to NCC 2021. This will open on a new page, which will include a link to submit your final (pdfeXpress approved) manuscript.

In addition to the above, for your paper to be included in the NCC 2021 proceedings published in IEEE Xplore, it must be presented at the National Conference on Communications 2021. A paper with no presenter may be removed from the conference proceedings.

For any further queries about submission process please contact us at ncc2021@iitk.ac.in or directly contact Dr. Ketan Rajawat at ketan@iitk.ac.in or Dr. Adrish Banerjee at adrish@iitk.ac.in
