Dear Authors,
You are welcome to prepare papers for MIKON and for URSI Symposium according to the following guidelines.

Please note that the accepted papers will be submitted to IEEEXplore Digital Library, but only if they fulfill conditions which are listed at the bottom of this page.

Review paper submission deadline has been extended:

  • register your paper (authors, title, topics, 20+ words abstract) until 22 Jan 2018
  • upload review paper (PDF file) until 24 Jan 2018

MIKON submission

Submit your review paper to

EDAS site for MIKON
(and  for „Highly-Integrated Millimeter-Wave Radar Sensors in SiGe BiCMOS Technologies”  joint session)

Please read the detailed instructions below!

URSI Symposium submission

Submit your review paper to

EDAS site for URSI Symposium
(and for „Electromagnetic fields and waves in the ELF and VLF range” joint session)

Please read the detailed instructions below!

Review paper

Your paper should be registered at the paper submission site for review by the TPC not later than 23:59 CET on 22nd January 2018,
and PDF uploaded not later than 24th January 2018.

Please register the paper as soon as possible, and then upload the document before the upload deadline. We recommend it this way, because it may take time – especially if the authors’ mailservers are slow (EDAS must verify authors’ emails).

You will be able to edit paper parameters or re-upload the paper until the deadline.

Submission to a focused session is marked as a „topic choice” in the paper registration process.

Do NOT pass your paper through PDF eXpress – this will be needed for the final paper only.

Paper format

We recommend all authors to use the standard IEEE conference proceedings A4 format template ( for review papers, as the same format is MANDATORY for the final paper.

This time we introduce two paper categories:

  • a full paper (3-4 pages in IEEE conference proceedings A4 format ),
  • a short paper (1-2 pages in IEEE conference proceedings A4 format).

The paper categories differ only in length of published text – the presentation rules are the same.

When registering your paper in the paper review system (EDAS):

  • please choose carefully your conference (MIKON or URSI) – there are different submission links,
  • please indicate which category of paper (full/short)  you target,
  • submit to „standard papers” track (unless you ARE an invited author and have the special password),
  • choose 1-3 topics from the list (or select your focused session title as the topic),
  • [MIKON only] decide whether the paper is eligible for Young Scientist Contest .

Please note that it is the focused session chair who accepts papers for a focused session; only then will they be reviewed. We suggest contacting the session chair before submitting to EDAS site.

Final paper

Upon acceptance of the review version of your paper, you will be asked to submit a final version, where you have a chance to take into account reviewers’ comments. Your final paper version should be uploaded to the paper management system before the deadline announced in the “important dates” section.

The use of the publication template is mandatory for acceptance of your publication into IEEE Xplore. Before submitting the final paper, please make sure that:

  • you have chosen the correct files and settings for an A4 page size and conference paper.
  • the pdf file is IEEE Xplore-compatible and has been checked with IEEE PDF eXpress service.

MIKON/URSI formatting requirements:

Please follow strictly the templates from

The correct format for the Paper Title is non-bold, non-italic and uses the „paper title” style in MS Word. Please check this before you attempt to upload the paper.

IEEEXplore compatibility

Your final paper should be IEEEXplore compatible, which includes:

  1. Being PDF 1.4 (Acrobat 5) or later but not Acrobat 9.
  2. Being created with a PDF distiller (converted by PDF eXpress  or created with pdflatex and checked by PDF eXpress) and not scanned.
  3.  All fonts must be embedded or subsetted.
  4. No password or other security settings.
  5. No bookmarks or links.
  6. No PDF attachments.

The full acceptance of the final paper is subject to following conditions:

AT LEAST ONE AUTHOR must register and pay the conference fee until 6th April 2018.

A Copyright Form for the paper must be completed together with final paper submission.

It is IEEE policy to include papers in IEEE Xplore only when the authors have attended the conference and presented their work. So called „no-shows” are excluded from publication!
