The presenting author should be present at his poster during the whole poster session, otherwise the paper may be considered a „no show”. When leaving for lunch please post a message stating the expected return time.

There is no possibility of printing the posters on-site! The authors should have the posters prepared when arriving at the conference venue.

Final paper

  • you have chosen the correct files and settings for an A4 page size and conference paper.
  • the pdf file is IEEE Xplore-compatible and has been checked with IEEE PDF eXpress service.

MIKON/URSI formatting requirements:

Please follow strictly the templates from http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

The correct format for the Paper Title is non-bold, non-italic and uses the „paper title” style in MS Word. Please check this before you attempt to upload the paper.

LaTeX users: do not forget to switch to „A4” paper size – put in the header:


(note „a4paper”!).
