I applied through edas and the paper has been accepted as a regular paper. They asked me to upload the Auxiliary Files (Camera Ready Source Files in doc/zip/rar), by which I guess they want the code and the dataset that I used for my paper.

My question is what is the use of these auxiliary files? Are they going to check my code and the results?

  • Could it be that you mix up two things? Camera ready source sounds to me as paper souces (LaTeX or whatever you use). Auxiliary, or as I see more often, supplementary files are things that might help others to understand your paper. Examples are data files, source code, videos, complete evaluation test suite, etc. – Oleg Lobachev Dec 29 '18 at 17:08
  • They asked for the Final Manuscript which has to be certified by IEEE PDF eXpress and I uploaded it. Next, they want me to upload the Auxiliary Files (Camera Ready Source Files in doc/zip/rar) and here I zipped the source code, data files and the necessary documents to understand the paper. But, what is the use of doing this? Are they going to check the source code? – Amrit Swaroop Sinha Dec 29 '18 at 17:30
  • No, they are not going to check the source code. "Checking" is what reviewers and editors do, I presume the paper is accepted. So all questions afterwards are of a technical nature. – Oleg Lobachev Dec 29 '18 at 17:33
  • Yes, the paper has been accepted. I am worried because, I wondered if the paper could be discarded if the reviewers were not satisfied by my way of scripting or may find some formatting error in the source code from the auxiliary files that I uploaded. So there shouldn't be anything to worry about now, right? – Amrit Swaroop Sinha Dec 29 '18 at 17:36
  • If you have a formal acceptance notification (in which or soon after which you are asked for a camera ready version), nothing bad can happen with your paper now. Exceptions are gross misconduct (it is a plagiate which was detected only now) or a retraction on your side (you hated the typesetting in the final version so much, it blew up with you and the editor, for example). – Oleg Lobachev Dec 30 '18 at 18:04
