When submitting papers to an IEEE conference, the PDF files have to pass the IEEE PDF eXpress check. One requirement is that all fonts have to be included and the PDF version is 1.4 (matches Acrobat 5.x and higher). Here I will show how this can be done using ghostscript. Works for windows (assuming ghostgum is installed) and linux machines.
The solution is quite simple, first create your PS file by your latex system by executing the whole latex+bibtex stuff and convert the DVI file to a postscript:
latex yourfile.tex bibtex yourfile.tex latex yourfile.tex latex yourfile.tex dvips yourfile.dvi -o yourfile.ps
And then use the following command to embed all fonts and set the appropiate PDF version (complex):

If you want to force the a4 paper version, simply use
