Submission Guidelines

Dear Authors for submitting a paper to a conference organized by the IEEE IES and Gdynia Maritime University it is essential to follow a series of rules in the format and typographies. These stringent requirements help the paper's information to be viewed correctly by other members. And ensure that if these articles are printed, no special tricks or specific paper sizes are needed.

Even though the conference template is similar to transaction template, using different template than conference papers template is not a good practice. For instance, authors' affiliation and acknowledgment notice formats are different.

You are advised to use the A4 template prepared by the CPE-POWERENG organizers by the link below, as its compatibility with the submission system was tested.

Fonts and Page Numbers

The typographical aspect of characters in IEEE technical papers is to be kept as similar and uniform as possible. For many years, the "Times" family of computer fonts, available in LaTeX packages and postscript printers, has been used.

Another common pitfall is placing page numbers into the document. As your paper will be placed into a collection of documents, please do not put page numbers. Most of the tools used to generate proceedings do this for the conference.

Authors' Affiliation

In conference papers do not place the authors' affiliation at the end of the first page of the document. Move this data below the authors' names, under the title of the paper.


Do not put the acknowledgment at the end of the first page of the document. Move your acknowledgment notice near the end of the last page of the document, before references.


No biographies nor photos of authors are allowed in conference papers.

From your document to PDF

IEEE has a clear and (almost) complete technical definition of the allowed PDF characteristics for conferences. The latest version can be downloaded from IEEE Publishing Technology Resources page.

PDF is an open standard, and there are many alternatives to create a file to submit. Some text editors, like Microsoft Word, OpenOffice and LibreOffice, can save the document in PDF format. Other solutions which allow convert papers to pdf are presented bellow:

Embedding Typographic Fonts

IEEE asks for embedded typographic fonts on each PDF file. And this is one of the most frequent mistakes.

The pdf file must include (embed) the fonts needed to be shown on screen and printed.

If the fonts are not embedded when generating the PDF, it is usually a configuration issue of the software that creates the pdf file. It is not a word editor problem. It is just a misconfiguration of the PDF creator (Adobe Distiller, Primo PDF, etc...) Please take a look at the user manual and the configurations menus. The solution is often a few clicks away. Just configure your program to embed all typographic fonts.
