EMC CALL FOR PAPERS

INFORMATION for Authors

Join your colleagues in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada where you can share your insight, ask questions, learn from the experts/innovators and see new products at the 2016 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility. The IEEE EMC Society is seeking original, unpublished papers covering all aspects of electromagnetic compatibility, including EMC design, modeling, measurements and education. This year’s symposium includes an embedded conference, 2016 IEEE International Conference on Signal and Power Integrity (SIPI 2016), featuring workshops, tutorials and technical sessions devoted to topics of interest to both EMC and Signal Integrity engineers.

EMC PAPER SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.

STUDENT PAPER CONTEST
Graduate and undergraduate authors are eligible for the Best Student Paper contest. The student must be the primary author and should indicate that they wish to be considered for the contest when submitting the preliminary manuscript. Each student’s professor will be asked to certify that the paper is primarily the work of the student.  The 2016 Student EMC Hardware Design Competition is also being held. Learn more.

EMC Society is offering a stipend to encourage and increase the involvement of graduate students and young scientists in the field of Electromagnetic Compatibility. The stipend would provide the equivalent of up to $2000 per person, for no more than 5 full-time students, to cover expenses associated with attendance at an EMC symposium for which they are the presenter of an accepted paper and a first timer at the conference. In addition the IEEE EMC 2016 Symposium committee has agreed to comp those 5 students' attendee fees. Students would need to apply for the stipend; recommendations from supervising professors would be required. Contact Vignesh Rajamani  to learn how to apply.

SPECIAL ISSUE OF IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON EMC
Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their symposium paper for possible inclusion in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility, featuring papers from the 2016 IEEE International Symposium on EMC. These submissions will be subjected to the same rigorous review as papers submitted for publication in regular issues of the IEEE Transactions on EMC.

GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS & SUBMITTAL PROCEDURES 
Prospective authors must submit electronically**.
