Call for Papers

You are cordially invited to the 2022 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting – AP-S/URSI 2022, from July 10–15, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency and Grand Hyatt, in Denver, Colorado, USA, the Mile High City. The conference is cosponsored by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) and the US National Committee (USNC) for the International Union of Radio Science (URSI). It is intended to provide an international forum for the exchange of information on state-of-the-art research in antennas, propagation, electromagnetic engineering, and radio science. It is exciting to have our conference in Denver, for the first time ever, and back in Colorado after 50 years.

Along with a highly illuminating and relevant technical program, you will experience outstanding conference amenities and hotels, as well as an exceptional social program, for a truly memorable joint AP-S/URSI Conference in July 2022 in Denver. We are preparing a comprehensive range of technical sessions, keynotes, invited talks, special sessions, student paper and design competitions, short courses, tutorials, exhibits, demonstrations, professional meetings, open forum discussions, and networking events. With its central location within the US, an extremely well-connected airport, and organized tours and activities within the city and its spectacular surroundings, our 2022 edition in Denver promises to be a great success.

The paper submission deadline is February 11, 2022.

  • All accepted and presented submissions will appear in the proceedings distributed at the conference.
  • The presenting author will be required to register for the conference by the due date (to be announced) in order for their paper to be included in the conference.
  • Detailed instructions, including formats and templates, are available on the conference website.
  • Every effort will be made to complete the review process by March 15, so attendees have enough time for visas if needed.

AP-S Student Paper Competition

Eligible entries in the Student Paper Competition must have only one student author, and that student must be the first author. Each additional coauthor must submit a signed letter indicating that his/her contribution is primarily advisory, to be uploaded at the time of paper submission. All Student Paper Competition entries will be evaluated using a double-blind review process, in addition to the normal review process used for all submissions to the conference. Detailed instructions are available on the conference website. For additional information, contact Asimina Kiourti and John Young spc@2022apsursi.org.

AP-S Student Design Contest

All students are encouraged to form teams and participate in Student Design Contest. Each team should consist of 2 to 5 students, with at least 50% being undergraduate students.
