The final version of a paper in the required format must not exceed 6 pages. Regardless of its initial format, the file containing the final version of the paper must be transformed in the PDF format using the IEEE PDF express web tool. The pdf files generated by means of other tools are not acceptable. Before going to the IEEE PDF eXpress, read the detailed instructions concerning the IEEE PDF eXpress, and proofread and check layout of your paper. Then:

-        create your IEEE PDF eXpress account by going to , and using Conference ID: imtc07 ;

Notice: The instructions concerning the preparation of manuscripts for submission to the IMTC 2007 Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement will appear soon in section POST-CONFERENCE ACTIONS.

Preparation of the copyright transfer form

It is recommended to start the preparation of the copyright transfer form by deciding which of the following three forms is to be signed:

-        the IEEE Copyright Form,

-        the US Government Employee Certification Form, or

-        the Crown Government Employee Certification Form.

The choice depends on the author's copyright status which is determined to a large extent by the type of employer for whom the author works. In particular:

-        If all the authors are employed by the US Government, then one of them should sign the US Government Employee Certification Form. However, if at least one of the authors is employed by a private enterprise, then he/she should sign the IEEE Copyright Form.

-        If all the authors are employed by a Crown Government, then one of them should sign the Crown Government Employee Certification Form. However, if at least one of the authors is employed by a private enterprise, then he/she should sign the IEEE Copyright Form.

The authors, who are authorized to sign a copyright transfer form, should use the IEEE eCF system for its generation and submission. This system is integrated with the web-based system for submission of papers. It includes an important tool (the Wizard) that, through a series of questions and replies, determines the author's copyright status and brings the author to the appropriate form to sign.

The authors, who are not authorized to sign a copyright transfer form, should download the paper version of a copyright transfer form, fill it in, and ask an authorized person to sign it.

Notice: The authors who like to disseminate their paper electronically by means of any website, ftp site or other technique must include the following IEEE copyright notice on the initial screen displaying the IEEE-copyrighted material:
