  Left and right margins of at least 2 cm each
  Printed in clean black, without gaps in the text
•  Page size 195 mm wide by 275 mm long

–  Each chapter begins on the right-hand page with odd-numbered pagination (if necessary the left-hand page, with even-numbered pagination, is left blank).
The thesis may be submitted in A4 size. The Repro service will reduce the document to the required size for printing.
The internal cover page is laid out by the Repro service, following the regulations given by the doctoral students’ office. In order of appearance, it contains:
  The title of the thesis
  The number of the thesis
  The date of the public defense
  The faculty, lab and the doctoral program
  Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne
  The academic title awarded
  The full name of the doctoral student
  The title (Dr or Professor), the name and the function (thesis director, president, examiner) of the jury members
  The EPFL logo
  The date of printing
Step 3/3 of the end of thesis process via IS-Academia Portal

The doctoral student uploads the final version of his/her thesis in the “Thesis” tab of the “ISA portal” [https://isa.epfl.ch/imoniteur_ISAP/PORTAL14S.htm] taking into account (where applicable) corrections required by the thesis jury during the oral exam.

The doctoral student completes the thesis’ metadata and specifies information concerning its distribution (internet, intranet etc.).

Last but not least, he is required to order the hard copies of his/her thesis at the Reprography (the EPFL’s printing centre) while specifying the details with regard to the printing.

As soon as these documents and information have been accepted by the thesis director, via his/her IS-Academia Portal the thesis is released for printing.
