Hiring a Publication Vendor

Conference Organizers have the option to create their own IEEE Xplore®-compliant conference content or hire a fee-based vendor.  

A publications service company can help you produce conference publications that meet IEEE guidelines for distribution at your conference and for posting on the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.

You may prepare your publication yourself. IEEE Publishing Technology Resources provides tools and specifications for vendors and conferences to submit publications for processing.

If you need professional support to help you prepare a high-quality technical program,  please see IEEE’s fee-based vendors below.
