  • All submissions must be in the form of an IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF file. The format should be in accordance with three different paper standards for URSI meetings, as given in the following templates. The templates below also describe the page limits and other requirements.

Please note the acceptable formats for different categories of submission.

  • Student Paper Competition (SPC): SPC applicants must submit a Full Paper (a maximum of ten pages), which is used for only for judging. The applicant must also submit either an Extended Abstract or a Summary Paper on the same topic.
  • For the paper submission, in order to generate IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF files, all authors must use the IEEE PDF eXpress service. For AP-RASC 2019, this will be available from August 01, 2018. Details on how to use PDF eXpress are provided here.
Authors should please note that:

  • The conference will have invited and contributory papers. The invited papers will be presented during oral sessions whereas all the contributory papers will be presented during oral sessions or interactive sessions using posters.
  • Paper presentation will be either oral or poster presentation. This choice will be made by the Scientific Program Committee.
  • All authors must agree to the copyright conditions available as part of the online submission process.
  • Each author can register as the presenting author for a maximum of two papers.
  • Extended Abstracts and Summary Papers will be included in the conference proceedings, with an ISBN number, which will be provided to all registered delegates on a USB stick.
  • Summary Papers for those authors who execute the optional IEEE copyright agreement and which are presented at this URSI AP-RASC 2019 will be submitted for posting to IEEE Xplore.
  • Extended Abstracts will not be submitted to IEEE Xplore.
  • For the SPC applicants, Full Papers will not be published to ensure that there are no subsequent prior-publication issues for those students who later wish to submit their work to a journal. This means that the ten-page Full Paper will not be included in the Conference proceedings. Consequently, SPC applicants must also submit a Summary Paper or Extended Abstract on the same subject to the appropriate session. The Summary Paper or Extended Abstract will be included in the conference proceedings.
