Instructions for authors

Before preparing the package for IEEE Xplore Digital Library, the Publishing Editor of SBFoton IOPC 2021 will coordinate a verification process to check if the uploaded final versions address ALL possible comments and recommendations made by the reviewers.

The final manuscript must be an IEEE pdf express compatible file, and it must be uploaded at the EDAS platform. The EDAS checks if the pdf is IEEE Xplore compliant, and gives warning messages of possible compatibility problems. The IEEE Xplore compliant pdf can be generated in the IEEE PDF eXpress site set up for the SBFoton 2021. To use this facility please follow the instructions.
