EMC and SIPI call for papers are now closed. Thank you for your submissions!


The template file for presenters can be found here. The screen size is 16:9 widescreen.

High quality, peer reviewed papers will be presented during the Tuesday / Wednesday / Thursday technical sessions. Papers will be presented in either oral 20-minute presentations plus a 10-minute question & answer period or as poster papers (allowing the author and attendee time to discuss the paper in more detail).

A paper is a technical manuscript of approximately 5,500 words with up to 6 pages including diagrams, figures or charts. The paper will be published in the Symposium Digest that will be provided to all attendees. At the symposium, the paper will be presented in a 20-minute oral briefing with charts from a digital projector & computer (using MS PowerPoint or Adobe PDF).

Conference proceedings will be submitted for posting to IEEE Xplore. In addition, authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their symposium paper for possible publication in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility (excludes Abstract Reviewed Papers).

Only those papers that are accepted and presented at the symposium will be published in the final record of the conference.


  • Preliminary Full Paper Manuscript: November 1, 2016 – January 16, 2017 January 23, 2017

Graduate and undergraduate authors are eligible for the Best Student Paper contest. The student must be the primary author and should indicate that they wish to be considered for the contest when submitting the preliminary manuscript. Each student’s professor will be asked to certify that the paper is primarily the work of the student. A Student Design Contest is also being held. Obtain the design kit, rules and award details from this website (coming soon!)


Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their symposium paper for possible inclusion in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility, featuring papers from the EMC+SIPI 2017. These submissions will be subjected to the same rigorous review as papers submitted for publication in regular issues of the IEEE Transactions on EMC.


  • Prospective authors must submit electronically**.
  • A preliminary manuscript (4 – 6 pages), including all relevant results and conclusions
  • Choice of presentation format (traditional oral or open forum)

** Preliminary Manuscripts and Final papers are to be submitted using the link provided on the symposium website at www.emc2017.emcss.org after November 1, 2016.
