IEEE is very strict about the requirements for converting application files or PostScript files to full-text PDF for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®. Please follow the instructions in "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore" that describes the essential steps in distilling PDFs that meet the IEEE requirements. The most important issue that every author shall pay attention to is to make sure that all the fonts used in your papers are EMBEDDED and SUBSETTED, especially for papers from Asia and Europe. The "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore" details the steps for you to check and to make sure that all fonts used are embedded and subsetted. Failure to embed and subset fonts is the biggest obstacle to PDF compliance with IEEE Xplore® and please make sure that your PDF files are compliant with IEEE Xplore®. Papers failing to meet the IEEE Xplore® PDF requirements may be rejected.
