IEEE Copyright Form

  4. You are then in the "IEEE Copyright Form Wizard" page. Answer the questions listed by clicking Yes/No button and the wizard will guide to the appropriate version of the IEEE Copyright Form. Click the Next button to get the next question.
  5. After the wizard completes the task, you will be directed to a filled IEEE Copyright Form. Read the form carefully and make sure that the information listed in the form is correct.
  6. Sign the form by typing your name at the bottom of the form and click the Submit button.
  7. Click the Download button to download the signed copyright form (in PDF).
  8. Click on the Return button and go back to the paper submission site for camera-ready paper upload.
