Call for Papers
Instructions for AP-S and URSI Authors
General Submission Information
All paper and abstract submissions must be received in PDF format via the symposium Web site on or before Friday, January 14, 2011. This is a firm deadline. Papers will not be accepted after this date. Only electronic submissions in PDF format will be accepted. Please consult the symposium Web site for the latest instructions, templates, and format examples. Only the author who submits the paper will receive an acknowledgement of the submission. Please do not include page numbers on submitted documents. All papers must be written in clear, idiomatic English. Please note that AP-S 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. Address all AP-S and URSI correspondence, including inquiries concerning papers, abstracts, the technical program, and copyright forms, to John Schneider, email@example.com, or Shira Broschat, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Instructions for AP-S Authors
Beginning with the 2011 symposium, all AP-S summary papers must be submitted in the IEEE standard two-column format. Templates for Microsoft™ Word (.doc) and LaTeX2e are available at the symposium Web site. Papers must be two to four pages in length, including text, references, and figures. Note that the information density of the new two-column format is roughly twice that of the old format. The introduction of the paper should clearly indicate the unique aspects of the submission and how it relates to previous work. A signed IEEE copyright form must accompany all AP-S submissions. Papers submitted without copyright forms will be rejected. Instructions for electronically signing and submitting copyright forms are available at the symposium Web site.
Instructions for URSI Authors
URSI abstract submissions must consist of at least 250 words and must be limited to one page, including figures. The text must be single-spaced with a minimum font size of 11 points. Any font may be used, but a font from the Times or Arial/Helvetica family is preferred. All fonts must be embedded in the submitted PDF document. The title should be centered 2.5 cm (1 inch) from the top of the page. The author’s (or authors’) name and complete organizational affiliation should start two lines below the title. If there are multiple authors, the presenter’s name should be indicated with an asterisk. The text should start three lines below the last line of the organizational affiliation(s). The top and bottom margins should be 2.5 cm (1 inch), and the left-hand and right-hand margins should be at least 2.5 cm (1 inch). Paragraphs should be separated with one blank line. Do not include a list of references. However, a few open-literature references may be included parenthetically, for example: (R. L. Lewis and J. R. Johler, Radio Sci., 2, 75-81, 1976). Acknowledgment of financial support is not appropriate. The Commission and session topic for the abstract must be identified at the time of submission.
AP-S Student Paper Competition
Eligible entries in the Student Paper Competition must have only one student author, and that student must be the first author. Each additional co-author must submit a signed letter indicating that his/her contribution is primarily advisory. Letters must be in PDF format and must be uploaded to the symposium’s student paper Web site in the indicated area at the time the paper is submitted. All Student Paper Competition entries will be evaluated using a double-blind review process in addition to the normal review process used for regular submissions. Detailed instructions are available at the symposium Web site. For additional information, contact Dejan S. Filipovic at Dejan.Filipovic@colorado.edu.
Requests to organize special sessions should be submitted to Susan Hagness at email@example.com no later than October 11, 2010. Each proposal should include the title of the special session, a brief description of the topic, and justification for its designation as a special session. All proposals should be submitted in PDF format. Special sessions will be selected and finalized by the end of November 2010. At that time, additional instructions will be provided to the organizers of the special sessions chosen for inclusion in the symposium and/or the meeting. The associated papers or abstracts will be due January 14, 2011.
Industrial, academic, and book exhibits will be open July 5-7, 2011. Exhibitor registration and additional information can be found at the symposium Web site.
Individuals who wish to organize a short course or workshop should contact Karl Warnick at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 15, 2010.
