1. SEEDA-CECNSM 2024 proceedings will be published by the IEEE, and all papers are expected to be formatted according to the IEEE Author Final Paper Preparation and Submission Instructions. Please use the templates found at: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html. We remind you that the regular paper length is considered to be *6 pages*, A4, 2 column format. An option to buy additional pages is available during the registration process.
  2. The appropriate copyright clearance code notice *is to be added at the bottom of the first page of each paper before creating the camera-ready PDF* according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloguing/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding, as follows:
    • For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
    • For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 979-8-3315-0448-9/24/$31.00 ©2024 Crown
    • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 979-8-3315-0448-9/24/$31.00 ©2024 European Union
    • For all other papers the copyright notice is: 979-8-3315-0448-9/24/$31.00 ©2024 IEEE
  3. If you use LaTeX and in order to correctly prepare your paper, please make sure that:
    • 1. The following code (or any other appropriate according to step 2. above) is located before the \maketitle command:\IEEEoverridecommandlockouts
      \IEEEpubid{\makebox[\columnwidth]{979-8-3315-0448-9/24/\$31.00~\copyright2024 IEEE \hfill} \hspace{\columnsep}\makebox[\columnwidth]{ }}
    • 2. The following code is located after the \maketitle command: \IEEEpubidadjcol
  4. You are instructed to use the dedicated IEEE PDF eXpress site: https://ieee-pdf-express.org/ and enter the following Conference ID: 63478X to validate your camera-ready papers. Please note that all PDFs to be included in IEEE Xplore® (e.g., title page, copyright page, author index, etc.) should have been validated through PDF eXpress for IEEE Xplore compatibility.
  5. After steps 1.-4. have been successfully concluded and in order to submit your camera-ready paper, you will have to *update/overwrite your initially submitted file* using the original SEDDA-CECNSM 2024 Easychair submission interface.
  6. According to SEEDA-CECNSM 2024 registration guidelines, each paper must have at least one author registered at a *non-student rate* by *July 10, 2024*. Registration information is available at: https://seeda2024.uniwa.gr/registration/
    Please note that this is also a hard requirement. IEEE will remove papers that are not accompanied by an eligible registration type from the list of papers to be included in the published conference proceedings, and, due to the hard deadline, it will not be possible to include papers for which registration has been paid at a later day.
  7. All authors are required to provide a transfer of copyright. IEEE Meetings, Conferences & Events (MCE) will reach out to you with next steps on the Copyright transfer process and further details about the *IEEE copyright release form* will be available directly from the respective IEEE services upon successful author registration and upload of the camera-ready paper to the Easychair system by *July 10, 2024*. The Copyright transfer process will initiate after the aforementioned deadline.
