Atlanta, Georgia, USA - 7-12 July 2019, at the Hilton in Atlanta, GA

Download Call for Papers

The Symposium and Meeting are cosponsored by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) and the US National Committee (USNC) for the International Union of Radio Science (URSI). The technical sessions, workshops, and short courses will be coordinated between the two organizations 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-theart research in antennas, propagation, electromagnetic engineering, and radio science.

The paper-submission deadline is Friday, January 18, 2019.

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit contributions for review and possible presentation at the Symposium or Meeting (the “Conference”) on topics of interest to AP-S and USNC-URSI, including advancements and innovations in the fields of electromagnetics, antennas, and wave propagation. Suggested topics and general information are listed on the Web site. 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.

AP-S Student Paper Competition

Eligible entries in the Student Paper Competition must have only one student author, and that student must be the first author. Each additional coauthor must submit a signed letter indicating that his/her contribution is primarily advisory. Letters must be in PDF format and must be uploaded to the Conference’s student paper Web site in the indicated area at the time the paper is submitted. All Student Paper Competition entries will be evaluated using a double-blind review process, in addition to the normal review process used for all submissions to the Conference. Detailed instructions are available on the Conference Web site. For additional information, contact Morris Cohen (mcohen@gatech.edu) or Cagri Ulusoy (ulusoy@egr.msu.edu).

Special Sessions

Requests to organize special sessions should be submitted to Prem Chahal (chahal@egr.msu.edu) no later than October 9, 2018. Each proposal should include the title of the special session, a brief description of the topic, an indication of whether the proposed session is for AP-S, USNC-URSI, or is joint, and justification for its designation as a special session. All proposals should be submitted in PDF format. Special sessions will be selected and finalized by the end of November 2018. At that time, additional instructions will be provided to the organizers of the special sessions chosen for inclusion in the Conference. The associated papers or abstracts will be due Friday, January 18, 2019. A list of special sessions will be posted at the Conference Web site in December 2018.


Industrial, academic, and book exhibits will be open July 9-11, 2019. Exhibitor registration and additional information can be found on the Conference Web site.

Short Courses/Workshops/Tutorials

Several short courses and tutorials on topics of special and current interest will be solicited by the technical program committee and organized for the Conference. Individuals who wish to organize a short course or workshop should contact Lee Harle (harle@msu.edu) or Glenn Hopkins (glenn.hopkins@ gtri.gatech.edu) by strong November 16, 2018.
