Because IEEE will do the final formatting of your paper, you
do not need to position figures and tables at the top and bottom ATH of each column. In fact, all figures, figure captions, and tables
can be at the end of the paper. Large figures and tables may span If you are using Word, use either the Microsoft Equation both columns. Place figure captions below the figures; place Editor or the MathType add-on (http://www.mathtype.com) for table titles above the tables. If your figure has two parts, include equations in your paper (Insert | Object | Create New | Microsoft the labels ―(a)‖ and ―(b)‖ as part of the artwork. Please verify Equation or MathType Equation). ―Float over text‖ should not that the figures and tables you mention in the text actually exist. be selected. Please do not include captions as part of the figures. Do not put captions in “text boxes” linked to the figures. Do not put
borders around the outside of your figures. Use the IV. Uabbreviation ―Fig.‖ even at the beginning of a sentence. Do not NITS

English units may be used as secondary Color printing of figures is available, but is billed to the units (in parentheses). This applies to papers in data storage. authors. Include a note with your final paper indicating that you For example, write ―15 Gb/cm22 (100 Gb/in).‖ An exception is request and will pay for color printing.
