The deadline has passed for Paper Submissions.

Download the IMS2016 Call for Papers

Paper submission: Authors are invited to submit technical papers describing original work and/or advanced practices on Radio-Frequency, microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz (THz) theory and techniques. 

Authors should create a New User Account at IMS2016 Navigation Center ( ) in advance of paper submission to avoid delay in account activation.

Papers should be 3 pages in length (PDF format), and should not exceed two megabyte in file size. Hardcopy and email submissions will not be accepted. Authors must adhere to the format provided in the conference paper template available on the symposium’s website. It is the authors’ responsibility to obtain all required company and government clearances prior to submission. Please don’t wait until the last day to start using the paper submission process. Those unfamiliar with the process may encounter paper formatting or clearance issues that may take time to detailed list of topics and instructions on how to prepare a proposal. Proposals must be received by 8 September 2015.

A double blind review process will be used. This requires special care in preparing the paper; more information here.

Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, content, clarity, and relevance to the symposium. For accepted papers, the electronic submission of a final manuscript along with a copyright assignment to the IEEE will be required no later than 29 February 2016. All accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors of accepted papers should consider submitting an extended version of their symposium paper for possible publication in the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques.

Emerging technical areas: IMS2016 enthusiastically invites submission of papers that report state-of-the-art progress in technical areas that are outside the scope of those specifically listed in this Call for Papers, or that may be new to the symposium, but are of interest to our attendees.

Student paper and student design competitions: Eligible students are encouraged to submit papers for the student paper competition. The papers will be evaluated using the same standards as all contributed papers. In addition, eligible students or student teams are invited to consider taking part in student design competitions during the IMS2016, which are organized and sponsored by various Technical Committees (TC) of the MTT-S Technical Coordination Committee (TCC).


Note: To ensure receipt of future e-mail messages from us regarding your paper submission, be sure to add the domain to your white list of approved senders. This is especially important for users of public e-mail providers such as Hotmail, Yahoo or Google.
