The IEEE copyright form is electronic. Go to the Blocks and Beyond 2017 Copyright page to start the proces of submitting your IEEE copyright form.
Unfortunately, the IEEE electronic form was very flakey for the submission of copyright forms for full papers and position statements. Please let Lyn know if you encounter any issues with the form. Previously, the form would sometimes hang near the final step. About half the authors experience this problem while the other half did not.
