# IEEE Xplore procedure for final paper Submission by Sep 22th, 2015

You should have received an email from Prof AMIEL explaining the final submission procedure. If not, please contact Prof Frederic AMIEL (frederic.amiel@isep.fr) urgently.

# Format

## Templates

The following style files and templates are available for users of LaTeX and Microsoft Word:

We recommend that you use the Word file or LaTeX files to produce your document, since they have been set up to meet the formatting guidelines listed above. When using these files, double-check the paper size in your page setup to make sure you are using the letter-size paper layout (8.5" X 11") or A4 paper layout (210mm X 297mm). The LaTeX environment files specify suitable margins, page layout, text, and a bibliography style.

In particular, with LaTeX, there are cases where the top-margin of the resulting Postscript or PDF file does not meet the specified parameters. In this case, you may need to add a \topmargin=0mm command just after the \begin{document} command in your .tex file. The spacing of the top margin is not critical, as the page contents will be adjusted on the proceedings. The critical dimensions are the actual width and height of the page content.

## Guidelines

We are using the ICASSP style. Use the following guidelines when preparing your document:

LENGTH: You are allowed a total of 5 pages for your document. Up to 4 pages may contain technical content, figures, and references, while the 5th page may contain only references. This is the maximum number of pages that will be accepted, including all figures, tables, and references. Any documents that exceed the 5 page limit or have a 5th page containing anything other than references, will be rejected.

LANGUAGE: All proposals must be in English.

MARGINS: Documents should be formatted for standard letter-size (8-1/2" by 11" or 216mm by 279mm) paper. Any text or other material outside the margins specified below will not be accepted:

• All text and figures must be contained in a 178 mm x 229 mm (7 inch x 9 inch) image area.
• The left margin must be 19 mm (0.75 inch).
• The top margin must be 25 mm (1.0 inch), except for the title page where it must be 35 mm (1.375 inches).
• Text should appear in two columns, each 86 mm (3.39 inch) wide with 6 mm (0.24 inch) space between columns.
• On the first page, the top 50 mm (2") of both columns is reserved for the title, author(s), and affiliation(s). These items should be centered across both columns, starting at 35 mm (1.375 inches) from the top of the page.
• The paper abstract should appear at the top of the left-hand column of text, about 12 mm (0.5") below the title area and no more than 80 mm (3.125") in length. Leave 12 mm (0.5") of space between the end of the abstract and the beginning of the main text.

TYPE:

• Face: To achieve the best viewing experience for the review process and conference proceedings, we strongly encourage authors to use Times-Roman or Computer Modern fonts. If a font face is used that is not recognized by the submission system, your proposal will not be reproduced correctly.
• Size: Use a font size that is no smaller than 9 points throughout the paper, including figure captions. In 9-point type font, capital letters are 2 mm high. For 9-point type font, there should be no more than 3.2 lines/cm (8 lines/inch) vertically. This is a minimum spacing; 2.75 lines/cm (7 lines/inch) will make the proposal much more readable. Larger type sizes require correspondingly larger vertical spacing.

TITLE: The paper title must appear in boldface letters and should be in ALL CAPITALS. Do not use LaTeX math notation ($x_y$) in the title; the title must be representable in the Unicode character set. Also try to avoid uncommon acronyms in the title.

AUTHOR LIST: The authors' name(s) and affiliation(s) appear below the title in capital and lower case letters. ICASSP does not perform blind reviews, so be sure to include the author list in your submitted paper. Proposals with multiple authors and affiliations may require two or more lines for this information. The order of the authors on the document should exactly match in number and order the authors typed into the online submission form. The LaTeX template has instructions for listing one or two authors. If you need to list more than 2 authors, please use the following structure:

\name{Author Name$^{\star \dagger}$ \qquad Author Name$^{\star}$ \qquad Author Name$^{\dagger}$}

\address{$^{\star}$ Affiliation Number One \\
$^{\dagger}$}Affiliation Number Two

ABSTRACT: Each paper should contain an abstract of 100 to 150 words that appears at the beginning of the document. Use the same text that is submitted electronically along with the author contact information.

INDEX TERMS (KEYWORDS): Enter up to 5 keywords separated by commas. Keywords may be selected from the IEEE keyword list found at: http://www.ieee.org/organizations/pubs/ani_prod/keywrd98.txt.

BODY: Major headings appear in boldface CAPITAL letters, centered in the column. Subheadings appear in capital and lower case, either underlined or in boldface. They start at the left margin of the column on a separate line. Sub-subheadings are discouraged, but if they must be used, they should appear in capital and lower case, and start at the left margin on a separate line. They may be underlined or in italics.

RELATION TO PRIOR WORK: The text of the paper should contain discussions on how the paper's contributions are related to prior work in the field. It is important to put new work in context, to give credit to foundational work, and to provide details associated with the previous work that have appeared in the literature. This discussion may be a separate, numbered section or it may appear elsewhere in the body of the manuscript, but it must be present.

You should differentiate what is new and how your work expands on or takes a different path from the prior studies. An example might read something to the effect: "The work presented here has focused on the formulation of the ABC algorithm, which takes advantage of non-uniform time-frequency domain analysis of data. The work by Smith and Cohen [1] considers only fixed time-domain analysis and the work by Jones et al [2] takes a different approach based on fixed frequency partitioning. While the present study is related to recent approaches in time-frequency analysis [3-5], it capitalizes on a new feature space, which was not considered in these earlier studies.

REFERENCES: List and number all bibliographical references at the end of the paper. The references can be numbered in alphabetic order or in order of appearance in the document. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference number in square brackets as shown at the end of this sentence [2]. An additional final page (the fifth page, in most cases) is allowed, but must contain only references to the prior literature. The end of the document should include a list of references containing information similar to the following example:

[1] D. E. Ingalls, "Image Processing for Experts," IEEE Trans. ASSP, vol. ASSP-36, pp. 1932-1948, 1988.

ILLUSTRATIONS & COLOR: Illustrations must appear within the designated margins. They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the top of columns, rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Caption and number every illustration. All halftone illustrations must be clear in black and white. Since the printed proceedings will be produced in black and white, be sure that your images are acceptable when printed in black and white (the electronic, conference-distributed proceedings and the IEEE Xplore proceedings will retain the colors in your document).

# Review & Publication

All submissions will be peer-reviewed. Review process of submitted materail can be tracked via CMT. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.
