PDF eXpress
All conference articles submitted to IEEE sponsored conferences must be in IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF format. Therefore, all papers must be submitted in English. IEEE offers PDF eXpress as a free service to IEEE conference authors, allowing you to make Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs you have created yourself for Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).
Advantages to authors:
It provides a means for you to convert your files to PDF, without requiring you to have access to a conversion program.
This conversion is provided in an IEEE Xplore compatible format, without you having to worry about conversion settings.
The system emails the converted file back to you, so you can make sure that your contribution is IEEE Xplore compatible and that no unintended corruption occurred.
It ensures that your paper views and prints as well as possible in IEEE Xplore.
By minimizing the risk of post-processing problems, it reduces the amount of time it will take for your paper to appear on IEEE Xplore.
