File Naming Conventions

Make sure you follow proper IEEE file naming conventions. Properly naming your graphics, tables, and author photos keep your submission orderly.

Graphic Files

Identify your graphics with the first five letters of the primary author’s surname, followed by a number signifying its sequential position within the article. For example, an author with the surname of Gonzalez may have:

  • gonza1.tif
  • gonza2.pdf
  • gonza3.png

Table Files

Tables should follow a similar naming convention. The only difference is that after the first five letters of the author’s surname, you should insert at “.t” before the table’s sequential location in the paper. Graphics and tables should be numbered independently of each other.

  • gonza.t1.tif
  • gonza.t2.pdf
  • gonza.t3.png

Author Photo Files

Author photos should be named using the first five letters of each author’s surname. If more than one author has the same surname, you should replace the last of the five letters with the first letter of their first names. The example for Anna Gonzalez, Bruce Gonzalez, and Charlie Gonzalez follows:

  • gonza.tif
  • gonzb.pdf
  • gonzc.png
