Introducing the Exciting New Theme Topic for EMC+SIPI 2017: “THE INTERNET OF THINGS (IoT)”
“IoT” refers to the concept of connecting a myriad of devices to the Internet. The types of devices include smartphones, wearables, medical devices, automobiles, airplanes and all manner of sensors connected to machines and infrastructure. Spectrum protection, interference mitigation, data integrity, nano-scale electronics are all important aspects of an effective, safe and stable IoT.
Analysts are predicting that by the year 2020 there will be over 28 billion devices connected to the Internet. Up to two-thirds will be “Things” that communicate and will ultimately transform the way that our world interacts. Smart devices will need to overcome challenges with security, privacy and unified standards. IoT will be integrated into all industries and our talented EMC Engineers are an instrumental component to the success of the future.
The 2017 EMC+SIPI Symposium is seeking IoT-related technical papers in the following topic areas:
Wireless & RF Spectrum Challenges/Solutions
Smart Cities and Energy
Tactics and topics for the next generation of device and system requirement
Other IoT & EMC+SIPI related themes are also welcome!
Students may not have experienced the preparation and submission of a technical paper. To assist in the process, we enlisted help from Joseph Vas, IEEE EMC Society Student Liaison. Joseph has prepared a flowchart to help students organize their content for a technical paper.
The EMC + SIPI 2017 attendees hail from some of the world's most innovative companies in technology, military, automotive, space, medical and many others. An accepted paper will gain exposure for students and can lead to career opportunities!
Call for Student Papers The IEEE EMC Society is seeking original, unpublished papers covering all aspects of electromagnetic compatibility, including EMC design, modeling, measurements and education. Graduate and undergraduate authors are eligible for the Best Student Paper contest. The student must be the primary author and should indicate that they wish to be considered for the contest when submitting the preliminary manuscript. Each student’s professor will be asked to certify that the paper is primarily the work of the student. Students submitting EMC and SIPI Technical Papers must plan to attend.
Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their symposium paper for possible publication in a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility.
