SIPI CALL FOR PAPERS
CALL FOR PAPERS IS NOW CLOSED
Join your colleagues in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, where you can share your insight, ask questions, learn from the experts and innovators and see new products at 2019 IEEE International Conference on Signal and Power Integrity (SIPI 2019), an embedded conference within the 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility, Signal and Power Integrity, in the week of July 22-26, 2019. Registered attendees will have access to the entire EMC Symposium program, in addition to the programs of SIPI 2019, without additional fees. As high-speed designs continue evolving, signal/power integrity and other EMC problems become tightly related to each other. Thus, the conference provides a unique opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas and share experiences relevant for today’s high-speed designs.
INFORMATION for Authors
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.

(late papers will not be accepted)
• Acceptance Notification: February 16, 2019
• Final Paper Due: April 19, 2019
Traditional Oral presentation: Presentation for those interested in presenting to large groups with limited potential for interactions with attendees. Six-page paper maximum, 20-minute presentation with 10-minute question and answer session.

STUDENT PAPER CONTEST
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.
SPECIAL ISSUE OF IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON EMC
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 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility, Signal Integrity and Power Integrity. These submissions will be subjected to the same rigorous review as papers submitted for publication in regular issues of the IEEE Transactions on EMC.
GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS & SUBMITTAL PROCEDURES
Prospective authors must submit electronically**.
• A preliminary manuscript (4 – 6 pages), including all relevant results and conclusions
• Choice of presentation format (traditional oral or poster paper)
** Preliminary manuscripts and final papers are to be submitted using the link provided below. During the electronic submission process a unique author code is created for tracking purposes. Submissions are reviewed anonymously; please do not include author names or affiliations on the Preliminary Manuscript. Failure to comply with submission requirements may result in rejection.
PAPER ACCEPTANCE PROCEDURES & CRITERIA
• Importance of Topic: Does it have direct significance to the EMC and/or SIPI community?
• Technical Sophistication and Depth: Does it present information that is a significant contribution, advancement, application or refinement of the state of the art? Does it expose the reader to a higher knowledge level than currently available from other sources?
• Readability, Clarity and Presentation: Is the value of the submission clearly defined? Is the material written in clear and concise English, with topics presented in an organized and logical manner?
• Novelty and Originality: Does it propose a new and unique concept or expand on an existing premise from a unique point of view?
COMMERCIALISM IN PRESENTATIONS
It is the policy of the EMC Society that commercialism shall be prohibited in all workshops and technical sessions. This applies to the written paper or notes as well as the oral presentation. Before publication, workshop notes and technical session papers shall be reviewed by the Symposium Committee for commercialism and rejected or revised if necessary.
Guidelines: The following is a series of guidelines that will be used by the Symposium Committee when reviewing workshop notes and technical session papers:
- Authors name, company name, address, phone number, fax number and e-mail address may be on the first slide only.
- All subsequent slides may have only ONE small (discreet) company logotype of less than 3% of the total image area in the margin of each slide or overhead transparency. No name, address and phone number may be shown.
- The company logotype shall not be used in a watermark fashion.
- All material printed in the workshop notes must adhere to the above requirements.
- Material printed in the Symposium Record may contain name, company, address and phone number on the first page only. No logotypes may be used and no additional mention may be made of the company except as necessary for the technical content of the paper.
- Authors and presenters shall refrain from making statements implying that their company’s product or service is better than others, or that such products and services are necessary.
- Frequent references to trade names shall be considered commercial and shall not be permitted during a presentation at a workshop, technical session or tutorial.
