Step 4: Generate Xplore-compatible PDF Fonnat Paper
IEEE is very strict about the requirements for converting application files or PostScript files to ffill-text PDF for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. The new IEEE Xplore Requirements for PDF will be enforced. All conference articles submitted for niclusion in IEEE Xplore must be in Xplore-compatible PDF format. You can find information about the paper verifications in the following:
Introduction to IEEE PDF eXpress
IEEE ISC2 2015 has registered for use of the IEEE tool: IEEE PDF eXpress.
According to the new IEEE Xplore Requirements for PDF, 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).
It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation of a compliant PDF file, you must still submit your final paper through EasyChair system.

Rich Text Format
* For documents created in formats that do not embed source files, include all support files with the final manuscript in a folder. Put this folder in a compressed archive for submission. If it is possible to embed images in the source document, you should do so to avoid potential issues, such as missing graphics.
IMPORTANT: A DVI (DeVice Independent file) is required for LaTeX conversions, in addition to all associated image files. Make sure that your LaTeX system can output a DVI, otherwise it cannot be converted. Be sure also to check that your images are properly referenced, and that DVI can handle the image file types used (DVI does not handle some newer image types, such as *.png).
Step 5: Submit the PDF Paper File on the EasyChair system
To appear in the proceedings of the conference we must have the final version of your full camera-ready paper by September 15, 2015. Your camera-ready paper(s) should be uploaded electronically through the EasyChair system. Please update the author names, the title, and the abstract of your paper on EasyChair as well.
