Preparation of the Paper

In order to help authors prepare an IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF for submission to WASPAA 2017, we compiled a paper kit including a list of guidelines and a paper template for users of LaTeX and MS Word.

These guidelines and templates are modified from those for ICASSP and past WASPAA workshops, so an experienced author who has published something in these conferences/workshops will find it easy to follow the guidelines and use the templates.

Page Limits

Submissions may be a maximum of 5 pages. Up to 4 pages may contain technical content, figures, and references. The 5th page must contain only references. Documents over 5 pages will be rejected. Documents with a 5th page containing anything other than references will be rejected.

Submission Format

All submissions must be in .pdf format and conform to the author style guidelines available in the paper kits provided above.

Accepted papers must pass IEEE PDF Express™ format verification prior to publication. Format verification details will be announced with paper acceptance notification.

Optional Attachment

Authors may provide an optional audio file to illustrate the work in the paper for reviewers.  The attachment must be in one of the following formats:
– MP3 audio file (file extension .mp3)
– MP4 audio file (file extension .mp4)


Authors must submit their papers and optional attachment through the EDAS website:
