The manuscript may have 4 pages of content and an extra page is allowed only for references. In other words, papers can have a 5th page, but the 5th page can contain ONLY references.
You may want to directly use the pre-formatted WORD or LaTeX template, but you are free to use whatever word processing software you are accustomed to, provided that you closely follow the instructions appearing in the template.
Manuscripts must be IEEE Xplore-compatible. If the manuscript does not meet IEEE Xplore compliance, it will NOT be published in the SAM 2016 Proceedings and the IEEE Xplore.
This is especially important for final manuscripts.
To meet these requirements, you must check your PDF file to ensure that it is compliant by using the IEEE PDF eXpress system. IEEE PDF eXpress allows the authors to directly generate IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs from their source files (Conversion Function) or to check their own PDFs for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check Function).
