Conference ID: aim08x
If you prepare the PDF file by YOURSELF, use Adobe Acrobat or other
software tools to convert your manuscript to PDF with all the fonts
embedded and subsetted. AFTER the conversion, the PDF file MUST be
checked and passed by the IEEE PDF eXpress.
Alternatively, you can use IEEE PDF eXpress service to convert your
source file to IEEE Xplore compliant PDF file.
IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their
authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to
check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore
compatibility (PDF Check function)

only for creation of a compliant PDF file, you must still submit your
