[Call for Papers] Special Section on Recent Progress in Antennas and Propagation in Conjunction with Main Topics of ISAP2017

The IEICE Transactions on Communications announces "Special Section on Recent Progress in Antennas and Propagation in Conjunction with Main Topics of ISAP2017" in February 2019. The objective of this special section is to publish recent research results on antenna and propagation technologies related to the topics in ISAP2017 (2017 International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation). The ISAP2017 will be held in Phuket, Thailand during October 30 – November 2, 2017, which provides an international forum for exchanging recent information on progress of the researches. The special section has been planned to publish papers on progressed discussion in ISAP2017. Submissions are available particularly from, but not limited to, the authors in the symposium.

1. Scope

This special section aims at timely dissemination of progressing research fields in ISAP2017. Possible topics include antennas and propagation technologies such as antenna design techniques, 5G mobile communication systems, MIMO, millimeter-wave/THz/optical applications, and wireless power transmission. The topics also include electromagnetic wave theory and computational methods for various electromagnetic topics including metamaterial, nano-electromagnetics, image sensing and their applications. However, the field of papers submitted to this special section is not limited to the above topics.

2. Submission Instructions

The standard number of pages is 8. The page charges are considerably higher for extra pages. Submissions of “letters” are not accepted. Manuscripts should be prepared according to the guideline in the "Information for Authors". The latest version is available at the web site, The period for revising the manuscript after acknowledgement of conditional acceptance for this special section could be shorter than that for regular issues (60 days) because of the tight review chedule.

This special section will accept only papers by electronic submission. Submit a manuscript and electronic source files (LaTeX/Word files, figures, authors’ photos and biography) via the IEICE Web site by February 15th, 2018(JST). Authors should choose the Recent Progress in Antennas and Propagation in Conjunction with Main Topics of ISAP2017 as a "Journal/Section" on the online screen. Do not choose [Regular-EB].
