The First International Workshop on
Protocols and Algorithms for
Reliable and Data Intensive Sensor Networks
Submission Instructions

The following instructions are important to prepare a camera-ready version of the workshop paper. All information are taken from the new MASS'07 regulations, since the workshop papers are included in the conference proceedings.

Authors should prepare a PDF file following the IEEE single-space, two-column format using at least 10 point size type. The paper must be correctly formatted to fit on U.S. "letter" size page (8.5" by 11") with at least 1" margins on all 4 sides. For workshop papers the limit is 6 pages. Papers can have up to 2 extra pages beyond the given length limit, with a $150 charge for each additional page. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as related information can be found here.

The PDF file should be prepared according to the IEEE PDF specification. The page numbers will be inserted by the conference CD-ROM producer. So please make sure not to number your pages. Do not insert any footers or headers. Do not use any PDF security features in submitted PDF files, i.e., they must be fully accessible and editable by the CD-ROM producer for numbering and other production purposes.

The following Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) code must be placed on the bottom, left-hand side of the first page of each paper: 1-4244-1455-5/07/$25.00 ©2007 IEEE

When using LaTeX the CCC code must be put by the following command:
1. First, use package command:
\usepackage{eso-pic}

2. Then, use the following command (everything in one line):
\AddToShipoutPicture*{
  \small\sffamily\raisebox{1.8cm}{\hspace{1.8cm}1-4244-1455-5/07/\$25.00 \copyright 2007 IEEE}}

Authors of all workshop papers must submit the camera-ready manuscript via email (c.weyer@tu-harburg.de). The deadline for submission is August 10, 2007. Please make sure your PDF file complies with the IEEE PDF specification. Authors should log in at IEEE PDF eXpress, and create or check PDF compatibility. Authors need create an account with the conference id: mass07. PDF files created with IEEE PDF eXpress are guaranteed to be accepted in the IEEE MASS'07 proceedings and the Xplore library. If you are unsure about this topic please contact the workshop chairs in advance, because this test is very important.

An IEEE Copyright Form must be submitted for each paper at the latest by August 10, 2007. Download an IEEE Copyright Form from here, fill in the paper information, and sign the form. The signed form can either be emailed to wang@pegasus.montclair.edu, or faxed to +1-973-655-4164. When emailing/faxing, please use subject line "Copyright form - paper id".

For a paper to be included in the conference proceedings, it is mandatory that at least one of the authors must be registered to MASS'07 with a full registration (i.e., non-student) status by August 10, 2007. A paper without registered authors past August 10, 2007 will be withdrawn.
