Steps for SoftCOM 2017 registration and final paper submission

Published SoftCOM 2017 papers will be included in IEEE Xplore and must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specification for compatibility.

1) Register for the conference.
2) Create your camera ready manuscript(s). Please note that list of authors must be same in the paper and EDAS!
3) Proofread and check layout of manuscript (it is highly recommended that you do this BEFORE going to IEEE PDF eXpress).

5) Forward the confirmation mail received from the IEEE PDF eXpress™ tool to softcom@fesb.hr.
6) All the papers selected for publication in SoftCOM 2017 proceedings must be accompanied by the filled and signed copyright form (pdf, doc). For a paper to be published in the Proceedings this form must be signed by at least the leading author.
7) Log on to EDAS and submit by August 1, 2017:
a) filled and signed copyright form
b) final, IEEE Xplore®-compatible PDF(s)

Information for authors/speakers

A computer (MS PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, USB) and LCD projector will be provided in each session room in order for authors to make PowerPoint presentations (all files must be formatted for Microsoft Windows Operating System).
