Final Manuscript Submission and Author Guidelines

Congratulations on having your paper accepted at the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP) 2009.

Each paper in the Proceedings of EuCAP 2009 will be published from a file uploaded by the author to the EDAS site used earlier for the submission of the abstract. All manuscripts have to be received electronically in .pdf format and must be compatible with IEEE Xplore. Please note that the organizer will check that for every paper at least one author has registered before the paper is included in the conference proceedings CD-ROM; furthermore, failing to present the paper at the conference (no-show) will prevent from the inclusion of the paper in the volume transferred to the IEEE Xplore digital library.

The extended deadline for final manuscript submission is 20 January 2009!

The Final Manuscript maximum length is five pages, longer papers will be truncated or excluded from the Proceedings. The maximum final file size is 1.25 Mbyte. Please follow the instructions below carefully to ensure that your uploaded Final Manuscript is compatible with IEEE Xplore formatting requirements: EuCAP2009 authors have access to PDF eXpress for the conversion of papers into PDF files. The EDAS submission site will check the submitted files for compliance and will reject non-compliant files. Failure to comply will prevent proper publication or accreditation of your work.

Manuscript Preparation

• The Conference Proceedings CD and electronic copy on IEEE Xplore will be in colour, but
  many readers print and use the papers in black and white (b&w) only. So, please check your
  final manuscript for legibility in both b&w and colour representations.
• Do not include headers, footers or page numbers.

Manuscript Format
