4. Electronic IEEE Copyright Form (eCF)
Signed IEEE Copyright forms should be submited electronically for all the accepted papers. SPICES 2017 has enabled the EDAS IEEE eCopyright function (ECF). With ECF, authors are redirected to an IEEE web site and fill in the IEEE copyright form on the web. The ECF then reports completion of the web form to EDAS, allowing the author to upload the form. Thus, authors do not have to print, fill out and upload copyright forms manually. Authors of accepted papers can submit copyright forms via the (c) link in the 'My Papers' tab.
5. Submit your final manuscript through EDAS
