Welcome to the treasure of the 2018 Symposium; the Technical Program! Here you will find people involved in the fields of EMC and Signal and Power Integrity technology participating in a diverse range of sessions, meetings, experiments, demonstrations, professional development, and society awards. In this technical program, three theme topics are planned in addition to the other excellent EMC topics; Wireless EMC, Autonomous Vehicles, and Aerospace EMC.
There are many ways to participate and support the Symposium. The most common is to submit a technical paper, but one can also sponsor a workshop/tutorial or special session on a topic of interest, propose a hardware experiment or computer modeling demonstration, organize a collateral or technical meeting, working group and more.
Technical Sessions are the core of the EMC+SIPI Symposium with topics that cover all aspects of EMC and Signal and Power Integrity. The technical committee is seeking original, unpublished papers.
A Special Session is one that addresses specific topics of high current interest, emerging technology, or those that of particular interest to the region in which the symposium is being held.
Workshops have multiple speakers and time set aside for audience interaction, such as giving the audience a sample problem and seeing how they might solve it or discussing potential solutions. Tutorials have multiple speakers presenting talks in lecture or presentation fashion with no real audience interaction except for questions at the end of the presentations. Both workshops and tutorials may include panel discussions.
Abstract Reviewed Papers were created for professionals that may be too busy with their careers to submit a technical paper through the traditional IEEE EMC Paper Format. To accommodate the busy schedule of practitioner engineers, only an abstract is required for the initial submission for Abstract Reviewed Papers.
The purpose of Experiments & Demos is to demonstrate important EMC and SIPI concepts through interactive experiments and demonstrations. Every year this event gains in popularity due to the reciprocal approach of the sessions.
EMC Society encourages Students to get involved in the symposium and EMC Society. Not only can Students learn valuable information and make professional connections by attending, but they can also submit technical papers for a chance to win Best Student Paper! Volunteering is another opportunity for Students to learn and connect with peers.
With so many people attending this pinnacle event from across the globe, it's a perfect opportunity for groups other than the EMC Society to hold meetings in parallel to the symposium. Collateral Meetings cover various topics including technical committees, other IEEE related groups, etc.
