Prospective authors are invited to submit a 50-word abstract and a 1000-word summary of their paper for consideration for oral or poster presentation. Both lecture and poster submissions have the same value and presentation format is only chosen for suitability. Submission is in electronic form via the website. Acceptable format is: PDF (IEEE Xplore compatible PDF). Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, subject to advance registration of at least one of the listed authors, and presentation of the papers. Papers should identify the “Subject Area” and include information about the contact author (name, mailing address, phone, and email). Authors should obtain company and government clearances prior to submission of papers. IEEE copy right release forms are required with the final camera-ready paper. All papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee. They will be judged with respect to their quality, originality, and relevance.  Nominations will be solicited for the D.W. Repperger Best Paper Award (POC: Dr. Ron Brower). The best student paper will be selected, and a Best Student Paper Award conferred.   Several poster awards will also be announced on the last day of the conference.

See submission page for details on how to submit your abstract.
