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
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.
