What is PDF eXpress?

PDF eXpress or PDF eXpress Plus, is an online based tool that converts authors PDFs to a compliant format compatible with IEEE Xplore®. PDF eXpress PLUS has the same functions as PDF eXpress with one additional feature. Each author deposits his or her validated PDF on the site for collection by the technical program chair. The tool is free to IEEE Conference Organizers. As a conference organizer, you can apply for a PDF Express or PDF Express Plus site once you have submitted the IEEE Conference Publication Form and received your Letter of Acquisition (LoA).
