Call for Papers: PIERS 2017 in Singapore (19 - 22 November)
- Where microwave and lightwave communities meet
(Technical Co-Sponsor: IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society)

This is to cordially invite you to participate in the 39th Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) to be held on 19-22 November, 2017 in Singapore.

Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) provides an international forum since 1989 for reporting progress and recent advances in the whole electromagnetic spectrum. Topics include radiation, propagation, diffraction, scattering, guidance, resonance, power, energy and force issues, and all other modern developments, with frequencies covering the entire electromagnetic wave spectrum (including microwave and lightwave, and beyond).
PIERS 2013 Stockholm (12-15 August) was a great success with 1650 paper submissions and 1135 registered/paid participants from 67 countries and many top-notch keynote/invited speakers of the areas. Since the Stockholm event, PIERS has become a big conference where microwave and lightwave communities meet. PIERS 2014 Guangzhou (25-28 August), PIERS 2015 Prague (6-9 July) and PIERS 2016 Shanghai (8-11 August) have over 2000 paper submissions and about 1400 registered/paid participants.

PIERS General Guidelines for Authors and Session Organizers are available at
Should you be interested in organizing a Special Session in PIERS 2017 in Singapore, please fill out the survey form at
List of confirmed focus and special session,
Programs for the past PIERS are available online at
PIERS Proceedings since 2016 will be submitted for archival in IEEE Xplore. Author of an accepted abstract is invited to (but is not required to) submit an extended paper of 2 - 8 pages.

=== Best Student Paper Awards ============
To encourage more students to present their good research results in PIERS, Best Student Papers will be awarded after their presentation in each PIERS. About 5 winners will be selected by a special committee. Each winner will receive 500 USD cash award and a banquet ticket to attend the Award Ceremony. Besides a winner (500 USD cash award), each subcommittee will also have 1-2 runner-ups for honorable mention. Each of them will receive a banquet ticket to attend the Award Ceremony.

=== Focus Sessions ============
In PIERS 2017 Singapore, a dozen of Focus Sessions will also be planned. Each focus session should be focused on a specific hot topic that must be timely and reflect the future trends or the latest scientific advances in the area. The leadership of the conference will select the topics of focus sessions and the responsible organizers. The organizers of a focus sessions should be active/leading scientists of the area, and should make the best effort to ensure the high quality of the session by inviting high-profile keynote speakers and excellent invited speakers, etc. Some contributed oral talks are encouraged, however, quality must be very well controlled with a typical acceptance ratio of less than 50%.

PIERS 2017 in Singapore has subcommittees for the following five sub-conference (SC) topics:
SC 1. Computational Electromagnetics, Electromagnetic Compatibility, Scattering and Electromagnetic Theory
SC 2. Metamaterials, Plamonics and Complex Media
SC 3. Optics and Photonics
SC 4. Antennas and Microwave Technologies
SC 5. Remote Sensing, Inverse Problems, Imaging, Radar and Sensing
