Camera Ready Submission Process

  • All papers must be submitted through IEEE's PDF-eXpress Plus system for ISCA-2014. This system will serve two purposes: (i) assist the authors in preparing IEEE-Xplore compliant pdf files, (ii) the collection site for final camera ready submissions.
  • The basic steps for submission are as follows:
    • Access the PDF-eXpress Plus website.
    • First-time users need to create a new account (follow the instructions on the login page).
    • Use 32457XP as the conference ID.
    • For each paper submission, click Create New Title.
    • Enter the paper's title.
    • Click Submit PDF for Checking.
    • Indicate platform, source file type (if applicable), click Browse and navigate to file, and click Upload File.
    • You will receive an email with your checked PDF or IEEE PDF-eXpress Plus-converted PDF attached. If you submitted a PDF for checking, the email will show if your file passed or failed the check.
    • Once checking is complete and passed, click Refresh File Status from the pdf-eXpress home page. Two new options will appear in the status block for your paper, Try Again and Approve for Collection.
    • If subsequent changes are required for your paper, you may upload new versions of your paper via the Try Again option.
