Camera Ready Instructions


WiOpt is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Control Systems Society, IEEE Information Theory Society and IFIP. All accepted papers will be published in the IFIP DL open library with Open Access and will be also submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore.

NOTE: to be able to upload your camera ready PDF on EDAS you will need to perform the following steps:

  1. Fill and upload the IFIP copyright form. See the instructions below;
  2. After finalizing your PDF by addressing the comments of the reviewers, certify the PDF by uploading it on PDF eXpress (see the instructions below);
  3. Register to the conference following the instructions at this link. In the confirmation of payment you will find a registration code that needs to be copied in EDAS when uploading the camera ready. The registration code appears under the field Payment order number in the payment receipt.

A completed copyright form is required to guarantee publication and to upload the camera ready. The copyright form may be found at:

Please fill and sign the copyright form, and name a scanned copy as “copyright-[PAPER ID].pdf”. Upload the signed copyright form to EDAS before uploading your camera ready paper. Should you have problems, please contact the WiOpt 2022 Publication Chairs, Maurizio Munafò ( and Xiaojun Lin (

Help with embedded fonts

Sometimes the embedding of fonts can be an issue. Here are some points to overcome this problem.

Times, Helvetica etc are used by usepackage{}: if you do not really need this, disable and run pdflatex. Otherwise, use the command ‘pdffonts yourfilename.pdf’ to identify if all the fonts are embedded. Ensure that the columns for ‘emb’ and ‘sub’ have only ‘yes’ in it. If not, either use adobe utilities, or try

  1. pdftops filename.pdf
  2. ps2pdf14 -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dEmbedAllFonts=true newfilename.pdf

Now you can upload the file newfilename.pdf (please also check pdffonts to see ‘yes’). In maths, the bbm package usually is problematic. In such cases, a brute force replacement by some other compatible package or changing the notation will do the trick of eliminating type3 fonts. Use pdffonts to see any Type 3 fonts, such fonts will not pass the pdfeXpress check during the final submission.

External images by includegraphics{} can create problems. A quick way to check is by using documentclass[draft,letter,conference,10pt] as preamble and run pdflatex. If the problem is the images, you can perform the step below.  One way is to embed the fonts in each image, by the following command

gs -dNOPAUSE -dBATCH -sDEVICE=pdfwrite -dEmbedAllFonts=true \ -sOutputFile=OUTPUT_FILE_NAME.pdf -f INPUT_FILE_NAME.pdf

and then run pdflatex yourfilename.tex
