Final Submission Guidelines for Papers

Thank you for your submissions! The following guidelines are intended to help authors prepare their final paper.



Final publication-ready versions of accepted papers must be uploaded to EDAS no later than April 5th, 2021. Late submissions cannot be accepted.

The following guidelines will assist authors of accepted papers in the final submission process:

  1. Revise the manuscript based on the reviews you received
  2. Add the appropriate copyright notice to your paper before creating the final PDF. The appropriate copyright clearance code notice is to appear on the bottom of the first page of each paper according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloging/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding.
    • For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
    • For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-6654-4090-5/21/$31.00 ©2021 Crown
    • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-6654-4090-5/21/$31.00 ©2021 European Union

  3. Ensure the following EDAS instructions are followed:
    • Do not include page numbers.
    • Do not include headers or footers.
    • Provide top and bottom margins of at least 0.5 inches
    • Submit the final version in PDF format.
  4. Use the (free) IEEE PDF eXpress service to perform all verification checks. This ensures the final PDF version of your paper is compatible with IEEE Xplore®.
    • Register and/or login to PDF eXpress (conference ID: 52461X)
    • The file returned by the PDF check will be labeled within its document properties as being “Certified by IEEE PDF eXpress” with an exact date and time stamp. The certified file is the file that should be submitted to the conference.
  5. Register for the conference
    • Registration information will be posted soon
    • Please recall the registration policy: To be published in the IEEE RFID 2021 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at member or non-member rate, and must present the paper at the conference. Registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to two papers.
