Conference Guides for [IEEE-CIS, INNS] conferences : Although this guide was initially set up for IJCNN2019, and was used for IEEE WCCI 2020, hopefully some of the basic information may still help [organising committee members, authors] up to 2023-2025 (assuming a half-life of links and process information of 3-5 years?). The Authors' and Publications menus have been combined, allowing authors to see the Publications Chair perspective as well. I am no longer keeping this up to date. Bill Howell, 11Dec2020

Blog : Final paper submission

The "Authors' Guide Blogs" (see links in manu near top of page) are in an early draft form, and are being run on a trial basis. Comments are moderated by the Publications Chair before posting, so expect delays of at least a day or so before they appear. Note that emails have been edited - usually by [omitting salutations, endings], but also by omitting material not relevant to the "theme" under which the emails are placed below.

For issues that arose with IEEE [electronic Copyright form (eCf), PDF eXpress], see blogs for those themes.

Dear Bill:

I already submited my final paper and get a IEEE copyright. But I forget which file I submited (original or PIDxxxxxxx.pdf). Maybe I submited the pdf file without IEEE eXpress check. I want to know the file name I submited to insure. If I submited a wrong file, my paper will not be accepted. My paper is #19150. Can you help me? Thank you very much!

Subject: IJCNN 2019 Paper #19437

We have submitted the camera-ready version of our Paper #19437, but then noticed that we forgot to add the acknowledgements of the paper.

We tried to re-submit our camera-ready, but we are not sure if the re-submission worked. We've a resubmission confirmation email, but we've also received an error message. Would it be possible for us to update our camera-ready submission?

I am sending our final version attached to this email.
