Notes

  1. For conference organizers: The use of the conference manuscript templates provided by IEEE eXpress Conference Publishing will greatly reduce the chance for errors in the metadata visible in IEEE Xplore®, and IEEE’s downstream Indexing partners. Errors may result in delays in posting or in making any approved corrections, or in some cases, may simply persist. Using the templates is one of the ways to reduce errors.

    If you wish, you may link to this webpage in its entirety. It is not recommended that you link to individual files, however, because they may be updated or replaced without notice.
  2. Grateful acknowledgement is made to the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, which provided the current LaTeX template.
  3. Other templates that more closely align with the IEEE Transactions article format are available.
