IEEE Latin-American Conference on Communications
11-13 November 2019 // Salvador, Brazil

Camera-Ready Instructions

In order to be published in the IEEE LATINCOM 2019 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author (including students) of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the FULL rate and is expected to present the paper at the conference. Please go to the conference website for detailed information about the registration process.

Please note that all LATINCOM 2019 authors, who intend on publishing in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, are required to provide a transfer of copyright.

Note that the IEEE LATINCOM 2019 applies the IEEE No-Show Policy, meaning that the IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

If you have any questions about the preparation and submission of your camera-ready paper contact the Publications Chair, Carlos Gutierrez, at

We present the instructions for preparing camera-ready papers for LATINCOM 2019.

Instructions For The Preparation And Submission Of Your Camera-Ready Paper


The final camera-ready version of your paper should account for all the reviewer’s feedback. Should you need to change the title or the abstract to account for such comments, then please request approval from the TPC Co-Chairs before proceeding with such changes.

All authors must agree to the final version. Check carefully that the authors’ names and affiliations are correct in the PDF file of your paper. Check also that the list of authors is correct in the JEMS platform, as we will use metadata from this platform to produce the author index of the conference proceedings.



1 – Papers must be written in English and formatted following the standard IEEE double-column conference template (US letter size) available from<<here>>

2 – Your paper should not include any header or footer information (e.g., page numbers) in the top/bottom margins. If your paper has been prepared using Microsoft Word, please ensure that you have used the most current version, which will help reduce word-to-pdf conversion issues such as embedded fonts, bookmarks, etc.

3 – Include the appropriate copyright clearance code notice on the bottom of the first page of your paper:

* For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is:  U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright

* For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-3955-5/19/$31.00 ©2019 Crown

* For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-3955-5/19/$31.00 ©2019 IEEE

* Latex users can add the following lines just before \begin{document} for the copyright notice to show up:
\IEEEoverridecommandlockouts \IEEEpubid{\makebox[\columnwidth]{ 978-1-7281-3955-5/19/\$31.00~\copyright{}2019 IEEE \hfill} \hspace{\columnsep}\makebox[\columnwidth]{ }}

MSWord users can use: Insert ➝ Text box, insert the appropriate copyright notice in the textbox and place the box (without border) at the bottom left on the first page.

This tool will also let you create IEEE Xplore compliant PDFs.

1 – First-time users should do the following:

* Select the New Users
* Enter the following:
– 48065XP for the Conference ID
– your email address
