By the end of day on Monday, September 09, 2019:
Here are the steps to follow:
This step can be done at any point in the process, but you might want to do it early so that co-authors have time to consult about it. It should be completed by Monday, September 09, 2019. If you need more time than this, email email@example.com. Follow the instructions on the Blocks and Beyond 2019 Copyright page to start the proces of submitting your IEEE copyright form.
Revise your submission to address all of the comments of all the reviewers and any additional comments from the organizers.
In order to clarify which documents are position statements, the titles of all position statements should begin with "Position:" or "Position Statement:", as in "Position: Thinking Outside the Blocks" or "Position Paper: Block Party: Having Fun with Blocks". If you did not make this changed before you submitted your IEEE copyright form, it turns out it's not a problem. The copyright form is still valid with the minor changed in title.
All submissions must be created using the 8.5" x 11" (US Letter), Two-Column Format template (LaTeX or MS Word) provided at the IEEE templates site.
If you use the LaTeX template, use the following \documentclass declaration; do not use the compsoc option.
The page limits for the main text of the paper are as follows, depending on whether your submission was accepted as a position statement, short paper, or long paper:
The above limits do not include acknowledgments (optional) or references, which follow the main text of the paper and may make the paper longer than the above limits.
If you added page numbers to your original submission, please remove them from your camera-ready version.
Note on copyright footer: The IEEE paper submission FAQ says "A copyright footer must be applied to the paper prior to uploading manuscript to PDF eXpress." However, you do not need to add such a footer in your workshop paper. We will add this footer (with the appropriate ISBN number) when we assemble the papers into a proceedings.
All camera-ready submissions must be PDF documents that have been validated using IEEE's PDF eXpress Plus tool. You can choose either to let PDF eXpress Plus create your final PDF from source or you can validate a PDF you have created yourself. Only papers that pass validation by PDF eXpress Plus are accepted by the IEEE Xplore digital library.
48857XPand go to step 4c.
You will also need to specify a password for this particular conference ID.
Click "Submit" when done and go to Step 4b.
Soon, you should receive an email from the system reporting the status of the validation/conversion.
This step must be completed by the end of day on Monday, September 09, 2019.
For the B&B 2019 workshop, you will use PDF eXpress Plus (not EasyChair) to upload the final version of your submission.
E.g., presenting author Phil E. Buster of paper "Time Consuming Blocks" would use the
In order for your paper to be published in the proceedings, it must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors. At least one of the paper authors must register for the workshop by Monday, September 09, 2019 (end of day, same as the camera-ready deadline). This is before the early regisration deadline on Friday, September 13.
Workshop registration information can be found at the VL/HCC registration page.
You can register for the workshop without registering for the main VL/HCC workshop. But please consider attending at least one day of the VL/HCC workshop. One of the main benefits of holding the Blocks and Beyond workshop with VL/HCC is cross-fertilization between the two communities.
Now is a good time to be thinking about hotel reservations. Hotel information is posted at the VL/HCC hotels page. Discounted rates for hotels are available only through Sunday, September 22, 2019.
