Update: a much simpler approach is described in Embedding fonts for IEEE.
My friend Yuhong reminded me to make sure I embed all fonts in the pdf file for our ICDM-05 paper. This seems to be an IEEE requirement.
Turns out to be a non trivial task, but not difficult. Here’s what I did (applies to a Linux TeTeX 3.0 distribution):
- As root, type “updmap –edit”, edit the config file so that it has the following content:
- Run pdflatex over your document.
- Run pdffonts over the produced pdf file, all fonts should have true in the columns “emb” and “sub”.
