Final Paper Submission

Once you receive the acceptance email, you will be asked to submit a final camera-ready paper by April 1, 2011. In the EDAS system, this can be done from either the "Home" tab or "My Papers" tab. Before uploading the final paper to the EDAS system, you will have to register for the workshop first. A "Regular Registration" is required for a paper submission. Please refer to the registration page for more information.

Once registration is complete, EDAS should, in most cases, automatically associate your paper with the registration. To check this, look at the "upload paper"column on the "My Papers" tab. If the column shows an upload icon, the registration is complete and you may upload the manuscript. If it is not, you can also manually associate the paper from the bottom section of the EDAS Registration Page.

Final manuscripts are required to be in standard IEEE two-column format and must be in a PDF file. The sample manuscript (pdf, doc, and Latex) in IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings (http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/pubservices/confpub/AuthorTools/conferenceTemplates.html) contains detailed requirements, and can be used as a visual guide. Authors preparing their final manuscript in LaTeX can use the IEEEtran style file, which can be downloaded from the same link.

When you are ready to upload the manuscript, click the icon in the "upload paper" column. The final manuscript will be restricted to four (4) printed pages. On the submission page, you will be given the option of purchasing up to two (2) additional pages at a cost of $100 per page. Once you have purchased any additional pages you require, please upload your file. You will receive an e-mail conformation of the upload.

When you submit your final manuscript you will also be required to submit a scanned IEEE copywrite form. The form may be obtained from the IEEE Website.

If you have any further questions regarding the final paper submission process, please contact Julian Cheng, (julian.cheng@ubc.ca).

Manuscript Submission

Manuscript submission is closed for CWIT 2011.

We are currently soliciting papers based on original research for consideration of presentation at the 2011 Canadian Workshop on Information Theory. All submissions should be written in English (or French) with a maximum paper length of up to six printed pages (10-point font) in a standard IEEE two-column conference format. However, the final manuscript will be restricted to four (4) printed pages unless overlength fees are paid.  Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done through EDAS.


Please make your paper submission to http://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=9329 before the January 15, 2011 deadline.


Final manuscripts are required to be submitted through EDAS in standard IEEE two-column format. The sample manuscript (pdf, doc, and Latex) in IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings (http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/pubservices/confpub/AuthorTools/conferenceTemplates.html) contains detailed requirements, and can be used as a visual guide. Authors preparing their final manuscript in LaTeX can use the IEEEtran style file, which can be downloaded from the same link. Final manuscripts should be up to four pages in length. CWIT 2011 will accept manuscripts of up to six pages in length, with an overlength charge of CAD $100.00 per page for each page beyond four. Although the IEEE format is not enforced for the initial submission, we strongly suggest that you use this format in preparing your submission as the camera-ready paper will be accepted only in IEEE standard format.


In order for an accepted paper to be included in the workshop program, and to appear in the proceedings or IEEE Explore website, at least one of its authors must register for the workshop at the regular rate, and must present the paper at the workshop. Please note that each full registration will only cover one paper.
