A conference’s product decision depends on several factors: budget, time available for production, publication size (number of articles), the venue’s Wi-Fi accessibility, and, certainly, attendee preference. With a choice of media and publication type (see also Service Tiers), IEEE eXpress Conference Publishing offers conferences the opportunity to select what they want with confidence, knowing a professional product will be provided to their attendees.
You can decide if you want IEEE eXpress to handle the manufacturing of the final units and to deliver them to your conference, on time, around the globe. Manufactured media choices include:
PRINT: hardback or softcover binding, available in several trim sizes:
US, A4, 7 x 10, 6 x 9.
CD/DVD: with a choice of label (one- or full-color) and packaging.
USB FLASH DRIVE: select one of several models with a capacity range of
up to 32 GB.
Alternatively, IEEE eXpress can provide master files via ftp for either your local manufacturer to download and produce final units, eliminating the time and expense of shipping, or for your conference webmaster to go green and host the proceedings on your Web site.
