Camera-ready submission guidelines

The Camera-ready paper as well as the copyright signed form are due on September 5, 2016.

RSP and other events under ESWeek are sponsors by IEEE and ACM. This year, 2016, ACM holds the copyright of these events, including RSP. Thus, we ask the authors to use the ACM templates for preparing their final camera-ready paper.

Note that the RSP’2016 proceedings will be published and distributed in IEEE Xplore and ACM Digital Library.

  • After completing your rights management form, you will be emailed the correct rights management text and bibliographic strip to place within their paper. Authors must enter this text into their paper on the first page in the lower left hand corner (see ACM templates below).
