IEEE is very strict about the requirements for converting application files or PostScript files to full-text PDF for inclusion in IEEE XploreŽ. Please follow the instructions in "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore" that describe the essential steps in distilling PDFs to meet IEEE requirements.

The most important issue that every author shall pay attention to is to make sure that all the fonts used in your papers are EMBEDDED and SUBSETTED, especially for papers from Asia and Europe. The "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore" details the steps for you to check and to make sure that all fonts used are embedded and subsetted. Failure to embed and subset fonts is the biggest obstacle to PDF compliance with IEEE XploreŽ and please make sure that your PDF files are compliant with IEEE XploreŽ. Papers failing to meet IEEE XploreŽ PDF requirements may be rejected.

For your convenience, IROS 2006 provide a tool to let you check whether your PDF files are compliant with IEEE XploreŽ. Please follow the detailed instructions to check your PDF using IEEE PDF eXpress. You are required to submit the PDF eXpress compliance email (received by the IEEE PDF eXpress server) that verifies that your paper is compliant as a *.txt file.
