If you are an author submitting a paper to an IEEE conference, you must also submit an IEEE Copyright Form to the designated Organizer/Publications Chair of your conference. Contact your conference organizer for more information regarding the use of the electronic IEEE Copyright Form (eCF).
Please note: If you do not complete a publication agreement with IEEE by means of signing and submitting an IEEE Copyright Form, your paper cannot be published by IEEE.
IEEE policy requires that prior to publication all authors or their employers must transfer to IEEE in writing, any copyright they hold for their individual papers. Transferring copyright is a necessary requirement for publication, except for material in the public domain or which is reprinted with permission from a previously published, copyrighted publication.
