The 2007 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation, sponsored by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, will be held June 10-15 at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel, Honolulu, HI, USA. We are proud to host this international forum to encourage the exchange of information on cutting-edge research in antennas, propagation, wireless communications, and electromagnetic engineering. The comprehensive program includes technical sessions, workshops, short courses, and social events.

Paper Submission
Authors addressing advances and innovations in electromagnetics, antennas, wave propagation, wireless communications, radar technology, and other related topics are invited to submit contributions for review. Upon acceptance, authors will be notified of the format (oral or interactive sessions) and the session date and time for presenting their papers during the Symposium. Below is a list of suggested paper topics. Guidelines for preparing manuscripts are described below.

Instructions for Authors
Summary submissions must be limited to four (4) pages, including text, references, and figures. The introduction should indicate how the submission relates to previous work and the unique aspects of the current submission. Footnotes should not be used except for credits to sponsors. An IEEE copyright form must be mailed or faxed or generated online as part of the submission process. Submissions without copyright forms will be rejected. Presentation equipment needed should be specified if different from Microsoft PowerPoint, PDF viewer, and computer projectors.

Student Paper Contest
For a paper to be considered in the contest, the student must be the first author of the paper and the primary contributor to the research. The student's advisor should attach a statement that his/her contribution was primarily advisory.

Special Sessions
Individuals interested in organizing special sessions should follow the instructions given on p. 107 of the June, 2006, issue of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine, and contact Prof. Nader Engheta (engheta@ee.upenn.edu) or one of the listed co-chairs no later than October 20, 2006. Those interested in organizing short courses should contact one of the responsible chairs with abstracts or summaries no later than November 15, 2006.

Electronic Submission
All papers must be submitted online as PDF documents. Authors having difficulty generating an appropriate PDF representation of their paper should contact the Technical Program Chairs.

Format for Submissions
The language of the conference is English. The text should be formatted single-spaced and sized for 21.5 28 cm (8.5 11 inches) paper. The title should be centered 1 inch from the top of the first page. The author name (or names) and complete organizational affiliation, including e-mail address if available, should be two lines below the title. Where there are multiple authors, specify the presenter by 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. Use a single column; double space between paragraphs (no indentation). Electronic submissions must meet IEEE Xplore specifications, including embedding of all fonts in the PDF file. See the conference Web site for templates and more information on creating acceptable electronic files.



For more information on the format for submission, download any of the links below.  We have included multiple formats for your convenience.

DOC, PDF, TeX, CLS file for TeX


PDF Assistance

APS 2007 has registered for use of  IEEE PDF eXpress™.  PDF eXpress will take your source files (word, dvi, etc.) and create a pdf that meets IEEE's guidelines.  It is important to note that PDF eXpress converts the file, but you must still submit the converted pdf file to the APS submission website.


IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

Tips for TeX users to generate usable PDF

TeX users face a unique set of challenges in creating their pdf. We have found that the following procedures work reasonably well:

  1. Generate your abstract using the TeX (CLS file for TeX) files.
  2. Convert to postscript using the command > dvips -Ppdf -t letter -G0 <filename>
    The first switch forces the use of Type 1 fonts. The second switch forces letter paper, and the third switch eliminates ligatures (i.e. replacing fi with the symbol for Pound Sterling). The -G0 switch may not be necessary with recent distributions of TeX.
  3. Convert the postscript to pdf using Acrobat with the appropriate IEEE settings file.

If the above procedure still fails, try using IEEE PDF eXpress, which will accept dvi files and convert them.


Steps for submission:

  1. Create your manuscript(s)

  2. Proofread and check layout of manuscript (it is highly recommended that you do this BEFORE going to IEEE PDF eXpress.)

  3. Create IEEE PDF eXpress account

  4. Upload source file(s) for Conversion; and/or PDF(s) for Checking

  5. Use IEEE PDF eXpress to attain IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF(s). The site contains extensive instructions, resources, helpful hints, and access to technical support.

  6. Submit final, IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF(s) [per the conference's instructions].
