Paper Submission Regulations and Agreements

Please, carefully read and strictly follow the instructions given below and on the EDAS submission system.

1. Prepare your paper by using one of the following templates.

Note that the final paper must be in Portable Document Format (PDF). The paper should have at least 2 pages and must not exceed 4 pages.

2. Prepare the PDF of the manuscript as required by IEEE Xplore.

For converting your source files (word, ps, etc) to PDF we strongly recommend to use IEEE PDF eXpress™, a free service for EMTS2013 submissions. IEEE PDF eXpress™ will accept your source files (word, ps, etc.) and create a pdf file in accordance with the IEEE guidelines (Conversion function) or, it will check your own PDF for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

Note that IEEE PDF eXpress converts or checks the file, but you still have to submit the final (converted) pdf file to the EDAS submission system.

To convert your document to PDF or to check your PDF file now, follow the link:

IEEE PDF eXpress™ (<< Click)

Conference ID: emts13x

One way to make a PDF file compatible with the IEEE Xplore from a MS-Word file is as follows. In MS-Word, a file is saved as a PDF with the option of "compatible with ISO 19005-1 (PDF/A)". Sometimes some figures in the PDF file could be shown wrongly. If so, the figures should be revised.


If the paper is accepted, the presenter must complete the Pre-Registration for EMTS 2013, come to the conference site, and present the paper.


If the paper is accepted, the copyright of the paper will be transferred to The Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE).

*The authors retain the following rights:
(1) All proprietary rights other than copyrights.
(2) Re-use of all or part of the paper in their work.
(3) Reproduction of the paper for author's personal use or for company/institution use provided that
(a) the permission of the IEICE is obtained prior to reproduction,
(b) the source and IEICE copyright notice are indicated,
(c) the copies per se are not offered for sale.
(4) The consent of the author (or one of the authors) be sought
as a condition in granting republication permission to others.


If the paper is accepted, it will be included in the IEICE proceedings archives. Also, it will be included in the IEEE Xplore based on agreement between IEICE and IEEE.


Each presenting author must pre-register for the Symposium by paying the non-refundable, registration fee (47,000 JPY; deadline: March 15, 2013), which includes paper-processing cost for the first paper. In case one author has multiple papers for presentation, it is required that he/she pays additional cost of 10,000 JPY per paper (second and after)

Yes, I agree. (I have read and understood the regulations and agreements, and I hereby agree to all the terms and conditions above.)
