Author's Kit

Paper Submission System


English is the working language of OPTIM Conference.
The paper must be written in English UK or English US.

First step: Contributed full paper proposal submission

A full paper proposal describing work not previously published or presented have to be electronically submitted in PDF file through the conference website no later than the deadline. The paper must be written in English UK or English US. Normally, the paper proposal should be 6 pages long (mandatory), two-column, single-space, on A4 format with supporting figures, tables and references, headed by title of paper and choice of topic category.
Please do not indicate authors' names.

The submitted paper proposal will be reviewed via a peer review process in order to ensure the highest technical quality of the conference. The paper proposal should clearly define the salient concepts and novel features of the work. Be sure to mention past or previous works to distinguish your originality from them (papers will be checked against plagiarism using a specialized software).

Paper Proposal Submission

Paper Proposal Submission entrance is available HERE

Authors will be notified by e-mail about the paper acceptance.

Second step, after paper acceptance notification: Final Paper submission

All full papers and signed copyright must be uploaded by above deadline. All authors must also register and pay the fee by indicated deadline. If you have not received your email with your paper's status, please login on your account and check under "Paper Submission" to view the results and reviews for your paper.

For the final paper, the reviewer's comments (eventually) received in the notification e-mail have to be taken into account. The correctness of the English language has to be carefully checked.

Please do not forget to add authors' data (names, affiliation, mail address, email).

IEEE is very strict about the requirements for converting application files or PostScript files to full-text PDF for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®. Please follow the detailed instructions in "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore®", which describes the essential steps in distilling PDFs that meet IEEE requirements.

The most important issue is to make sure that all fonts used in the paper are EMBEDDED, especially for papers from Asia and Europe. The "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore®" details the process to ensure that all fonts used are embedded and subsetted. Failure to embed and subset fonts is the biggest obstacle to PDF compliance with IEEE Xplore®. Papers failing to meet IEEE Xplore® PDF requirements may be rejected.

Formatting rules

Papers are limited to six-eight (6-8) A4 sized sheets, and must conform to IEEE double column format.

Do NOT insert any headers, footers, or page numbers.

Templates for papers are available in DOC, PDF and LaTeX formats.

IEEE provides a set of templates in MS Word and LaTeX format. We strongly recommend you use this set of templates provided by IEEE. Please use them to create your paper, but don't modify the style nor the format under any circumstances.
To learn more about how to create papers for IEEE IES conferences, please visit the IEEE conference page.

Note about Attachments

Due to unavoidable differences in computer programs, authors may detect very slight differences between these three templates. Papers following any of these three templates and adhering to IEEE PDF requirements will be acceptable.

How to conceive and execute an IEEE paper.

As OPTIM-ACEMP biannual Conferences have become IEEE Xplore and ISI certified, the competition for paper acceptance will enforce further. Also, after presentation at OPTIM-ACEMP a paper could be sent to be considered for further review and eventual publication in IEEE Trans. Vol. IA, EC, IE, PE with the mentioning of its presentation at OPTIM-ACEMP. These should be strong reasons for you to consider drastic measure to improve the quality of your papers in the near future.
To assist you, we are attaching here a tutorial (.pdf 644.5KB) by
Dr. Bimal Bose IEEE Life Fellow and an exemplary paper (.pdf 344KB)
by Prof. Robert Lorenz, IEEE Fellow.

Please study them carefully and see how you can emulate them.

OPTIM-ACEMP 2017 has registered for use: IEEE PDF eXpress™

IEEE PDF eXpress™ will be available from March 1th.


All conference articles submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specification for compatibility.

IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

Steps for submission:

  1. Create your manuscript(s)
  2. Proofread and check layout of manuscript (it is highly recommended that you do this BEFORE going to IEEE PDF eXpress.)
  3. Create IEEE PDF eXpress account
  4. Upload source file(s) for Conversion; and/or PDF(s) for Checking
  5. Use IEEE PDF eXpress to attain IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF(s). The site contains extensive instructions, resources, helpful hints, and access to technical support.
  6. Submit final, IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF(s) [per the conference’s instructions] by the indicated deadline.
  7. Remain in contact with the Secretariat for perforrming some improvements, if necessary
