I am planning to submit a manuscript through EDAS and I am using the IEEEtran class (conference option). EDAS gives the following errors:

The gutter between columns is 0.155 inches wide (on page 4), but should be at least 0.2 inches.

The top margin is 0.665 in on page 4, which is below the required margin of 0.7 in.

I have looked up all the posts about the Edas and gutter problems but I could not figure out the problem.

Since this error happens only on page 4, I think some figures, tables or equations have problems within this specific page.

Any suggestions, about possible commands which can result in such errors, are appreciated.

    try to add in preamble \usepackage{showframe} and than see, if all pages are inside of page layout. then try rephrase content of fourth page or page before, that it will fit into frame. on the end remove \usepackage{showframe} from preamble! – Zarko Apr 27 '18 at 13:24

  • If an equation in the first column is too wide, it will push into the gutter. However, figures and tables should push down, not up. – John Kormylo Apr 27 '18 at 14:09
  • Try \addtolength{\columnwidth}{0.1 in} for gutter between columns and \addtolength{topmargin}{0.1 in} for top margin issues. – Mithun May 4 '18 at 10:08

I had the same problem, I resolved it by adding these packages:

\setlength{\columnsep}{0.2 in}
\def\BibTeX{{\rm B\kern-.05em{\sc i\kern-.025em b}\kern-.08em T\kern-.1667em\lower.7ex\hbox{E}\kern-.125emX}}
