The International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2023 will be held at the San Diego Convention Center from 11-16 June 2023. IEEE-MTT has announced that paper submissions are now being accepted for the premier RF/microwave event. The deadline for submission is 06 December 2022. Authors are invited to submit technical papers describing original work and/or advanced practices on MHz through THz theory and technology. A double-blind review process will be used ensuring anonymity for both authors and reviewers. The Symposium proceedings will be archived electronically and submitted to IEEE Xplore.
All submissions must be in English. Submissions must be 3-4 pages long, be compliant with the IEEE conference template, which can be downloaded from the IMS2023 website, and be compliant with double-blind requirements. The submission must be in PDF format and cannot exceed 4 MB in size. Authors must upload their paper submission by midnight Hawaii time on 6 December 2022. Late submissions will not be considered.
Paper Selection Criteria
All papers are reviewed by subject-matter expert sub-committees of the IMS2023 Technical Program Review Committee (TPRC). The selection criteria will be:
- Originality: Is the contribution unique and significant? Does it advance the state of the art of technology and/or practices? Are proper references to previous work by the authors and others provided?
- Quantitative content: Does the paper give a comprehensive description of the work with adequate independent verification (measurements, if applicable, or otherwise independent simulated data)?
- Clarity: Are the paper contribution and technical content presented clearly and in a logical manner? Are the English writing and accompanying figures clear and understandable?
- Interest in MTT-S membership: Will this paper interest the IMS audience and encourage discussion?
Technical areas: During the paper submission process, authors will choose a primary and two alternative technical areas (see the Technical Areas). The paper abstract should contain information that clearly reflects the choice of the area(s). Author-selected technical areas will be used to determine an appropriate committee for reviewing the paper, whereby the TPC co-chairs reserve the right to place papers in the most appropriate technical area. The technical areas are divided into five different categories that are used to organize the paper presentation schedule. It is permissible to choose primary and alternative technical areas that are in different categories.
The authors will be notified of the decision by 1 February 2023. For accepted papers, an electronic version of the final 3-4 page manuscript along with a copyright assignment to the IEEE must be submitted by 8 March 2023. The submission instructions will also be provided through emails and can be accessed through the IMS2023 website.
The IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) is the premier annual international meeting for technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice. It consists of a full week of events, including technical paper presentations, workshops, and tutorials, as well as numerous social events and networking opportunities. The symposium also hosts a large commercial exhibition. Co-located with IMS are the IEEE RFIC, IMBioC and ARFTG conferences.
