Submission of Papers

The deadline for submission of papers is January 10th, 2018 at (23:59 CET). Authors must submit their papers via the online Paper Submission Site.

The Technical Programme Committee encourages submission of original, unpublished, clear, accurate, and relevant papers in any of the topical areas.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by the Technical Programme Committee and selected for either oral presentation or poster presentation.

Before you access the Paper Submission Site please prepare your paper according to the requirements below. If you are entering the Young Scientist Competition (YSC) or the Student Paper Competition (SPC) be sure to read those instructions as well. You will need additional information.

Abstracts and Papers

There are three different paper standards for URSI meetings being

You can access templates for these standards through the preceding links. The templates describe the page limits and other requirements.

  • Contributed Papers: All Commissions will accept either an Extended Abstract or a Summary Paper.
  • Young Scientist Awards (YSA): YSA applicants must submit a Summary Paper.
  • Student Paper Competition: Entrants must submit a Full Paper (a maximum of ten pages), which is used for only for judging (it will not appear in the proceedings), and must also submit either an Extended Abstract or a Summary Paper on the same topic, which will appear in the proceedings.

Authors must use the IEEE PDF eXpress service to generate IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF files. This will be available between December 2, 2017 and January 29th, 2018. Details on how to use PDF eXpress are provided here.

 

Notes:

  • Extended Papers and Summary Papers will be included in the symposium proceedings, which will be provided to registrants on a USB stick.
  • Extended Abstracts will not be submitted to IEEE Xplore.
  • Summary Papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore unless the author opts out.
  • Student Paper Competition, Full Papers will not be published to ensure that there are no subsequent prior-publication issues for those students who later wish to submit their work to a journal. This means that the ten-page Full Paper will not be included in the symposium proceedings. Consequently, entrants must also submit a Summary Paper or Extended Abstract on the same subject to the appropriate session. The Summary Paper or Extended Abstract will be included in the symposium proceedings.

 

Radio Science and Radio Science Bulletin Special Issues

Radio Science (Editor, Phil Wilkinson) will publish a Special Issue associated with AT-RASC 2018 and the Radio Science Bulletin (Editor, W Ross Stone) will accept appropriate papers from the symposium.
