Submission of the FINAL MANUSCRIPT is handled via EDAS system in PDF format.
Guide for the final manuscript submission:
Med-Hoc-Net '12 has been registered for use of IEEE PDF eXpress. All Med-Hoc-Net '12 conference articles submitted for inclusion in Med-Hoc-Net '12 Proceedings 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). If a final manuscript is not compliant with PDF eXpress, it will not be included into proceedings submitted to IEEE Xplore after the conference.
Steps for the final manuscript submission:
The final manuscript is due by Friday May 23, 2012. At least one author of the accepted paper must register to the Med-Hoc-Net '12 at the full rate to upload the final version. The detailed registration instructions are available here. The
registration deadline is May 23, 2012. Final manuscripts are to be uploaded through EDAS using "Upload paper" link accessible from the accepted paper details. Each accepted manuscript should have a maximum of eight (8) printed pages.
1. Create your manuscript(s)
Authors should prepare a PDF file following the IEEE single-space, double-column format.
The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates for US letter format, as well as related information can be found here.
Please make sure not to number your pages. Do not insert any footers or headers. Do not use any PDF security features in submitted PDF files, i.e., they must be fully accessible and editable by the producer for numbering and other production purposes.
2. Proofread and check layout of manuscript (it is highly recommended that you do this BEFORE going to IEEE PDF eXpress).
3. Use IEEE PDF eXpress to attain IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF(s). The site contains extensive instructions, resources, helpful hints, and access to technical support (see " Procedure for PDF eXpress log in " below).
4. Submit the final, IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF(s) to the Med-Hoc-Net '12 through EDAS using "Upload paper" link accessible from the accepted paper details. Please note : uploading a paper to IEEE PDF eXpress is not the same as submitting the paper to the conference. You will still need to upload the checked PDF with final manuscript to EDAS.
IEEE copyright form
At the moment of final manuscript submission (due by
Friday May 23, 2012) the
IEEE copyright transfer agreement must be submitted electronically (in
scanned pdf format) onto EDAS using the "Copyright" link accessible from the
accepted paper details.
Viewable printable versions of the IEEE Copyright Form in PDF and DOC format.
Please note that the title "2012 The 11th Annual Mediterranean Ad Hoc Networking Workshop (Med-Hoc-Net)" must be used on the copyright form.
Papers accepted for the Med-Hoc-Net '12 will be included in the conference Proceedings, IEEE XPlore®, and EI Index, with the exception that IEEE reserves the right to exclude any paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore®) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Papers that are removed from IEEE Xplore will not be available through the EI Index.
To be published in the Med-Hoc-Net '12 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and must present the paper at the conference. Registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the Med-Hoc-Net '12 Conference Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore®.
Further, note that if a final manuscript is not compliant with PDF eXpress (see instructions above), it will not be included into proceedings submitted to IEEE Xplore after the conference.

IEEE PDF eXpress converts the following file types to PDF: Rich Text Format, Freelance, (La) TeX (DVI and all support files required)*, PageMaker, FrameMaker, QuarkXpress*, Word Pro, Microsoft Word, WordPerfect.
*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).
