Call for Papers | 2013 IEEE Radar Conference

Call-for-Papers_FINAL Call for Papers is closed.

 

Please join us for the 2013 IEEE Radar Conference to be held at the Ottawa Convention Centre in Ottawa, Ontario. RadarCon13 will provide a rich technical program over a broad array of topics in radar systems, technology, applications, phenomenology, modelling, and signal processing.

 

The Arctic – The New Frontier, presents a vast and challenging environment for which radar systems operating in a multi-sensor environment are currently being developed and evaluated. These radars cover a broad spectrum of applications and can be deployed on space, air, ship and ground platforms for both remote sensing of the environment and for the monitoring of human activity.

 

Author Instructions

Prospective authors must electronically submit a paper summary (3-4 pages, including figures) by November 12, 2012. All papers will receive multiple peer reviews; authors will receive timely notification of paper acceptance. If accepted, final papers must be no more than 6 pages and will be submitted electronically.  This process is now closed

Papers must be presented at the conference — either orally or as a poster — by an author or selected colleague and will appear in the final conference proceedings on IEEE Xplore.  POSTER BOARDS are 4 feet high by 8 feet wide.  Your poster must fit into that frame.  We will provide velcro dots to attach your poster.

Student papers must follow the same submission procedure and deadlines. Note at the top of the summary that submission is for the student paper competition. Begin developing your topic and paper now to present at this yearly, prestigious conference.
