Deadline: The deadline for submission is 5 December 2016.
Paper submission: Authors are invited to submit technical papers describing original work and/or advanced practices on radio-frequency, microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz (THz) theory and techniques.
Papers should be 3 pages in length (PDF format), and should not exceed 2 MB in file size. Hardcopy and email submissions will not be accepted. Authors must adhere to the format provided in the conference paper template available on the IMS website. It is the authors’ responsibility to obtain all required company and government clearances prior to submission. Please don’t wait until the last day to start the paper submission process. Those unfamiliar with the process may encounter paper formatting or clearance issues that may take time to resolve.
A double-blind review process will be used to ensure anonymity for both authors and reviewers.
Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, content, clarity, and relevance to IMS. For accepted papers, the electronic submission of a final manuscript along with a copyright assignment to the IEEE will be required no later than 27 February 2017. Symposium proceedings will be recorded on electronic media and archived in IEEE Xplore. Authors of accepted papers should consider submitting an extended version of their IMS paper for possible publication in the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques.
Emerging technical areas: IMS2017 enthusiastically invites submission of papers that report state-of-the-art progress in technical areas that are outside the scope of those specifically listed in this Call for Papers, or that may be new to IMS, but are of interest to our attendees.
Special sessions, workshops, panel and rump sessions, and short courses: Topics being considered for these areas include Next Generation Wireless Systems (5G and beyond), Internet of Space, Latest Technologies for RF/Microwave Measurements, and Advances in RFIC Technology. Proposals must be received by 6 September 2016.
Student paper and student design competitions: Eligible students are encouraged to submit papers for the student paper competition. The papers will be evaluated using the same standards as all contributed papers. In addition, eligible students or student teams are invited to participate in student design competitions during IMS2017, which are organized and sponsored by various Technical Committees of the MTT-S Technical Coordination Committee (TCC).
MicroApps: MicroAppsand exhibitor workshops: The Microwave Application Seminars (MicroApps) serve as a forum for IMS exhibitors to present technology behind their commercial products and special capabilites. New for IMS2017 are Exhibitor Workshops, which offer IMS exhibitors a chance to present in-depth technical topics, via two-hour sessions, in a meeting room off the exhibit floor. Both presentation formats are open to all conference and exhibit attendees — MicroApps are free of charge and Exhibitor Workshops require a nominal fee. Please refer to the Call for Presentations for more information.
