Paper submission: Authors are invited to submit technical papers describing original work on radio-frequency, microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz (THz) theory and techniques. The deadline for submission is 9 December 2013, 23:59 Hawaii time. Paper submissions should be three pages in length (PDF format), and should not exceed two megabytes in file size. Hardcopy and email submissions will not be accepted. Please click here for detailed instructions concerning paper submission. Authors must adhere to the format provided in the conference paper template available on the symposium’s 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 using 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. This requires special care in preparing the paper; more information here.

Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, content, clarity, and relevance to the symposium. For accepted papers, the electronic submission of a final manuscript along with a copyright assignment to the IEEE will be required no later than 3 March 2014. 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 symposium paper for possible publication in the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques.

Emerging technical areas: IMS2014 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 the symposium, but are of interest to our attendees.

Special sessions, workshops, panel and rump sessions, and short courses: The deadline for submitting proposals for special sessions, workshops, panel and rump sessions, and short courses has passed. Technical papers and MicroApps proposals can still be submitted.

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 consider taking part in student design competitions during the IMS2014, which are organized and sponsored by various Technical Committees (TC) of the MTT-S Technical Coordination Committee (TCC).

MicroApps: The Microwave Application Seminars serve as a forum for exhibitors at the IMS to present the technology behind their commercial products and their special capabilities. The presentations are open to all conference and exhibit attendees. Please refer to the IMS2014 MicroApps page for more information on submitting MicroApps technical papers.

Note: To ensure receipt of future e-mail messages from us regarding your paper submission, be sure to add the domain to your white list of approved senders. This is especially important for users of public e-mail providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo or Google.
