The "2019 Joint International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility and Asia-Pacific International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility, Sapporo" (EMC Sapporo & APEMC 2019) will be held at "Sapporo Convention Center", Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan, from June 3 to 7, 2019. EMC Sapporo & APEMC 2019 is the 8th “International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility” organized by IEICE-CS, and the first joint symposium under technical co-sponsorship by Asia-Pacific EMC (APEMC). We would like to invite all engaged in research and development in the various fields of electromagnetic compatibility to participate in this Symposium.

This EMC Symposium series has a long history and it has been held every 5 years. The first of its series was held in Tokyo in 1984, which was the first IEEE EMC Symposium held outside USA sharing sponsorship with IECE. Ever since the second in 1989, this symposium series has been sponsored by IEICE.

Call for paper

Call for paper description

Those who wish to present their scientific work at EMC Sapporo & APEMC 2019 should submit electronically in two-column and either one-page format for abstract submission (in proceedings only, Oral/Poster) or full-length (four-page) format for paper (for IEEE Xplore Publication, Oral/Poster) submission through the on-line Paper Submission System at the symposium website. The paper must be written in English and follow the two-column A4 format of an IEEE Manuscript Template for Conference Proceedings. There are two types of scientific sessions for EMC Sapporo & APEMC 2019; “Regular Sessions” and “Organized Sessions”. The Regular Sessions will consist of contributed papers only, while the Organized Sessions will be arranged by the Session Organizers. 
  When submitting a paper, the author will be asked to select “2” session topics that would best match the contents of his/her paper for review. There are “15” session topics for the Regular Sessions, and more topics will be added for the Organized Sessions after the end of November, 2018. Submission for contributed papers will start on August 31, 2018, with the deadline on December 24, 2018. 
  All the contributed papers will be fully reviewed by specialists in the EMC field, and the review results will be notified to the authors on February 18, 2019. The authors of accepted papers must register for EMC Sapporo & APEMC 2019 and submit the final camera-ready versions of their papers no later than March 22, 2019.
