The 2017 IEEE International RF and Microwave Conference (RFM C2017) is intended to provide an international forum on research progress and developments in electromagnetic wave theory, microwave, millimeter wave and THz technology, wireless communication technology and related fields. Seeking to promote mutual-interaction among participants, RFM 2017 will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on November 13-15, 2017. RFM 2017 is organized by IEEE AP/MTT/EMC Joint Chapter, Malaysia, hosted by IEEE MTT-S, and technically co-sponsored by EuMA and IEEE AP-S.

All submissions will be peer reviewed by an international panel of reviewers. All accepted papers will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Paper Submission


Online Submission at: http://edas.info/N23526

All paper submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of FOUR (4) printed pages (10-point font) including figures without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with over-length page charge if accepted). Papers exceeding 6 pages will not be accepted at EDAS. The accepted paper size is A4.

The submitted paper should be in pdf format of version 1.4 or above. Please ensure that all fonts are embedded in PDF file. Scanned (bit image) papers are not accepted. The pdf file should not contain bookmarks, form fields, links and annotations (notes).

Authors must not indicate their names and affiliations in the body of the paper to be submitted as a double-blind peer review process will be used to evaluate all papers.

All papers must be submitted online via EDAS at: http://edas.info/N23526

Authors are strongly encouraged to use the Standard IEEE conference templates to prepare the paper.

The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore®) if the paper is not presented at the conference UNLESS written permission to conference organizer (we provided alternative to present your paper).

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Malaysia Section  will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.

IEEE Web Page on Double Submission:http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/rights/Multi_Sub_Guidelines_Intro.html

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IEEE RFM 2015 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the FULL or LIMITED (member or non-member) rate and must present the paper at the conference. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one paper one registration. Accepted papers will be published in the  IEEE RFM 2015 Conference Proceedings. Accepted and presented papers will be considered in the  IEEE RFM 2015 Conference Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore®.
