Please note that IEEE PDF eXpress Plus is the final collection site for camera-ready papers for this conference. EDAS will NOT be used to collect camera-ready papers.

Submission Instructions for Camera-Ready Versions

All authors must submit the camera-ready version of their paper through IEEE PDF eXpress Plus (see above). PDF eXpress Plus will be open for WoWMoM 2013 starting on March 16, 2013.

Important: The deadline for submission is April 21, 2013 (11:59pm EDT) ‐‐hard deadline.

IEEE Copyright Form

An IEEE Copyright Form must be submitted for each paper. Authors are allowed to file IEEE copyright forms electronically.

To upload copyright forms, first log into EDAS, then go to "My Papers" tab and click on the '(c)' icon under the column "Copyright Form" where your paper is located.

You will be redirected to the IEEE Electronic Copyright Form website. Please provide carefully the answers that best apply to you. Once the copyright form has been successfully recorded, you will receive a confirmation email.

Note: If one of the author is authorized to sign the copyright on behalf of all the authors, the copyright form shall be submitted by that author. Otherwise, answer "Yes" when asked "Should another Author or Corporate Officer complete the electronic Copyright Form?" and ensure the other authors complete this process.
