An electronic version of your final in IEEE eXplore®-compatible PDF format must be submitted to the HPEC 2016 submission site no later than August 13, 2016.  Submission of final papers requires two procedures:  1) The first procedure is to ensure that all final papers are in pdf format and are IEEE Xplore compliant.  2) The second procedure is to submit the final paper to the conference, in pdf format, for publication. Procedure 1:  Ensure pdf file is IEEE Xplore compliant Please note: All pdf files are required to be IEEE Xplore compliant. HPEC 2016 has registered for use of the tool IEEE PDF eXpress® Plus. IEEE PDF eXpress Plus is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (by using the conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (by using the PDF Check function).

The Xplore site will NOT collect final papers. When you are satisfied with the final paper, be sure to log in to

the HPEC 2016 Submission Site and submit your compliant PDF for collection.

Steps for using the IEEE PDF eXpress® Plus tool:

1. Create your manuscript(s) 2. Proofread and check layout of manuscript (it is highly recommended that you do this BEFORE going to IEEE PDF eXpress). Figures and fonts should be very legible in the final manuscript.  The final manuscript should address comments provided by the Technical Program Committee (TPC) during the review process of summary papers.  These comments can be found by logging into the conference submission site at: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/HPEC2016/. 3. Create IEEE PDF eXpress account. The url to use this tool is:  http://www.pdf-express.org/   The conference ID is 35639X.  Upload source file(s) for Conversion; and/or PDF(s) for Checking 4. Use IEEE PDF eXpress to obtain IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF(s). The site contains extensive instructions, resources, helpful hints, and access to technical support. 5. Once you have a compliant PDF file, log in to the HPEC 2016 Submission Site and submit your compliant PDF for collection.  The deadline for submitting this final PDF file is August 13, 2016.
