REDW-2017 Author Instructions
Congratulations on the acceptance of your summary for presentation at the 2017 IEEE Radiation Effects Data Workshop. I look forward to seeing you in New Orleans, Louisiana and working with you as we take your contribution through presentation at the Workshop and the publication process for the Workshop Record.
This letter will discuss several issues relevant to the Workshop and the Workshop Record. Let's start with the REDW publication schedule.
REDW-2017 Publication Schedule
Posters not taken down by close of business Friday will be discarded, as we will need to return the poster boards. Note that because of space considerations at the meeting location, the REDW posters will be set up initially in Salons H-F, essentially one wing of the Mardi Gras Ballroom. This is a tight space! After the conclusion of the industrial exhibits the poster boards will be moved by the event staff out into the ballroom where there will be more room for viewing. This means that it is critical that you follow the instructions to print your poster on a single large sheet of paper (no 8.5x11” sheets!) to help prevent anything falling off during the move. The committee chairs will be there to be sure it goes smoothly but please make sure your poster is attached securely.
The formatting instructions for your poster presentation are provided on the NSREC website. Please adhere closely to these requirements.
As you probably know, there will be no further peer review of the final printed copy of your REDW paper. However, I will review each Workshop paper for editorial correctness before submission to IEEE for publication. Technical content is not the primary consideration for this review. I will work with the individual authors in case changes are needed. These changes will need crisp execution because of the tight publication deadline.
For the purpose of editorial review, you may submit the draft paper to me via email. The softcopy paper may be in Microsoft Word (or something readable by Word) or Adobe pdf. The draft must be formatted in the final state for this submission. Please use the template as your style guide. The template also contains information about the submission process. All figures are to be inserted in the paper prior to submission of the draft. This is a simple editing step to provide grammatical and/or other editorial feedback. The page limit for REDW documents is eight (8) pages. You may request more pages if you have significant data to provide or another compelling reason. There is no requirement to use all the pages, so shorter papers are also welcome. The graphics must be embedded as described in the template.
I would like to have your draft submissions as soon as possible, but no later than July 12, 2017. Please send your draft submission via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your final paper is due July 28, 2017. The IEEE will setup a web site for online submission of your final paper for inclusion the REDW Record publication. Do not submit your final paper until the draft version has been reviewed and approved by me. Please note you are also required to complete an IEEE copyright form. This form must included with your final paper.
Please feel free to give me a call or send an email if you have questions.
All email correspondence should include the text "REDW2017 Paper" in the subject section, so my email "spam filters" will recognize it as relating to the workshop.
