Call For Papers

The 2009 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and the 2009 USNC/URSI National Radio Science meeting will be held jointly on June 1-5, 2009, at the Embassy Suites Convention Center in North Charleston, SC. The symposium and meeting are co-sponsored by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) and the U.S. National Committee of the International Union of Radio Science (USNC/URSI) Commissions A, B, C, D, E, F, and K. The technical sessions, workshops, and short courses will be coordinated between the two groups to provide a comprehensive and well-balanced program. This meeting is intended to provide an international forum for the exchange of information on state-of-the-art research in antennas, propagation, electromagnetic engineering, and radio science. Please note that technical sessions are held over five days from June 1 to 5, with workshops and short courses on May 31 and June 6, 2009. Visit the meeting website at for more information.

Paper Submission: Authors are invited to submit contributions for review and possible presentation in the symposium on topics of interest to AP-S and URSI including advancements and innovations in the fields of electromagnetics, antennas, and wave propagation. Suggested topics and general information are listed in this call. In addition to regularly scheduled sessions for oral and poster presentations, there will be a student paper competition as well as special sessions, workshops, and short courses that will address timely topics and state-of-the-art advancements in these fields. All paper submissions are due January 16th, 2009.

The title should be centered 1 inch from the top of the first page. The author’s (or authors’) name and complete organizational affiliation should be two lines below the title. If there are multiple authors, the presenter is to be indicated with an asterisk. The text should start three lines below the last name. Left- and right-hand margins should be 4 cm (1.5 inches). A 2.5 cm (1 inch) margin should be at the top and bottom of all pages. Paragraphs are to be separated with one blank line. Submissions must withstand a linear reduction to 70% of original size and maintain readability. Only the author who submits the paper will receive an acknowledgement of the submission. Please do not include page numbers on submitted documents.

Additional Instructions for AP-S Authors: The paper must be limited to four pages including text, references, and figures. The introduction should indicate clearly how the submission relates to previous work and the unique aspects of the current submission. Footnotes should not be used except for credits to sponsoring agencies. A signed IEEE copyright form is necessary with all AP-S submissions. Missing copyright forms will make it necessary to reject the paper. Instructions for submitting the copyright forms are on the symposium website at

Additional Instructions for URSI Authors: URSI abstract submission must consist of at least 250 words and must be limited to one page, including figures. 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). Acknowledgement of financial support is not appropriate. Also, please identify the Commission and session topic for the paper.

AP-S Student Paper Competition: A student must be the first author of the paper. The student’s advisor should attach a statement that his/her contribution is primarily advisory. In addition, the transmittal letter should clearly indicate “student paper submission” and conform to all other submission requirements and instructions for authors as described in this call. For additional information contact Caicheng Lu at

Special Sessions: Requests to organize special sessions should be submitted to Susan Hagness at no later than October 13, 2008. Special sessions will be selected and finalized by the end of November. At that time, additional instructions will be provided to the organizers of the special sessions chosen for inclusion in the symposium and/or meeting. The associated papers or abstracts will be due on January 16, 2009. A list of special sessions will be posted on the symposium website in December 2008.
