All paper and abstract submissions must be received in PDF format via the symposium Web site on or before January 17, 2020. This is a firm deadline. Papers will not be accepted after this date. Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be accepted. Please consult this web page for the latest instructions, templates, and format examples. Please do not include page numbers on submitted documents. All papers must be written in clear, idiomatic English. Please note that a paper may be excluded from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the proceedings submitted to IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Address all AP-S and URSI correspondence, including inquiries concerning papers, the technical program, and copyright forms, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For an accepted paper to be listed in the technical program, one of the authors of the paper must be registered by May 22, 2020. In the event that this is not possible due to funding or visa issues, another registered attendee must be identified to serve as presenter prior to May 22, 2020.
The language of the symposium is English. The text should be formatted single-spaced and sized for 215.9 x 279.4 mm (8.5 x 11 inch) paper. The title should be horizontally centered 19 mm (0.75 inch) from the top of the first page. The author's (or authors') name and complete organizational affiliation should be two lines below the title. If there are multiple authors, the presenter is to be specified with an asterisk superscript at the end of the name. The text should start three lines below the last name. Paragraphs are to be separated with one blank line, and a minimum font size of 10 points is recommended to maintain readability. Submissions must withstand a linear reduction to 70% of original size and maintain readability. Please do not include page numbers on submitted documents. Only designated contact-authors will receive an (automated) acknowledgement of the submission.
A signed (electronically) IEEE copyright form or URSI Abstract Publication Agreement must accompany all submissions. Papers submitted without copyright forms will be rejected. Instructions for electronically signing and submitting copyright forms can be found under "Steps for Submission" below. Abstracts or papers submitted without copyright forms will be rejected
Please note that the symposium reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the proceedings submitted to IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
Left and right margins should be 15.7 mm (0.6 inches). A 25.4 mm (1 inch) margin should be present at the top and bottom of all pages. The allowed margins, and associated tolerances, for all pages are: 15.7 +/-2.5 mm (0.6 +/-0.1 in) for the left and right margins; 25.4 +/-2.5 mm (1.0 +/-0.1 in) for the top margin; and 25.4 mm (1.0 in) minimum for the bottom margin.
By default, 2-page papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore, but submitting authors have the option to ask that 2-page, 2-column papers not be submitted to IEEE XPlore. URSI authors should choose between these two options. Submitting both formats is not allowed.
Left and right margins should be 25.4 mm (1 inch). A 25.4 mm (1 inch) margin should be present at the top and bottom of all pages.
Eligible entries in the Student Paper Competition must have only one student author, and that student must be the first author. Each additional coauthor must submit a signed letter indicating that his/her contribution is primarily advisory. Letters must be in PDF format and must be uploaded individually during the submission process at the time the paper is submitted. All Student Paper Competition entries will be evaluated using a double-blind review process, which requires the upload of two versions of the paper – one regular and one double blind paper. Detailed instructions and guidelines are available on the conference Web site. Failure to follow all instructions will result in the removal of the paper from the competition and its placement in the regular submission paper pool. Compliant papers accepted for the student paper competition are included in the regular Symposium program, with the finalists required to participate in an additional competition poster session. Questions should be directed to the AP-S Student Paper Competition Committee at email@example.com.
To foster active involvement of students and to ensure a future membership of highly qualified researchers in the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, the Society sponsors a Student Paper Competition at its annual Symposium. The complete Rules and Guidelines are available here. Questions about the competition should be e-mailed to the 2020 AP-S Student Paper Competition Coordinators (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Information coming soon.
Papers for the special sessions must comply with all submission requirements and instructions for authors, including the submission deadline. A list of the special sessions is available in the submission Web site.
Please note that there are three types of special sessions, AP-S only, URSI only, and joint AP-S/URSI, and this establishes the submission format to be used. An AP-S only session requires papers in the AP-S format, and an URSI only session requires papers in the URSI format. Either the AP-S or URSI format can be used for the joint AP-S/URSI special sessions. Questions on special sessions should be directed to the special session co-chairs at email@example.com. Organizers of the special sessions will be provided additional instructions.
Paper Submission will be open soon.
