Call for Tutorials

The MWSCAS 2017 technical program will include Tutorials to be held on the first day of the symposium. MWSCAS 2017 seeks proposals for half-day tutorials only that present current topics in circuits and systems related research and development. Tutorials should focus on established or emerging research topics within the field itself, but we also welcome tutorials from related research fields or application areas. The ideal tutorial should attract a wide audience, be broad to provide a gentle introduction to the chosen research area, and should also cover the most important contributions in depth. Proposals that exclusively focus on the presenter’s own work or commercial presentations are not eligible.

 

The Organizing Committee of the IEEE CASS MWSCAS 2017 invites proposals for tutorials to be held on the first day of the MWSCAS 2017, which will take place in Boston, MA, on August 6-9, 2017.

Tutorials are solicited in, but not limited to, the following MWSCAS topics:

  • Analog and Mixed Signals Circuits
  • Nonlinear Circuits and Systems
  • Communication and RF Circuits and Systems
  • Green and Power Electronics
  • Power Management Circuits and Systems
  • Low-Power Technologies and Harvesting Energy
  • Signal Processing
  • Control Systems and Robotics
  • MEMS
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Tutorial Proposal Guidelines

    A tutorial proposal must include the following information:

  • Title of the Topic, Names and Affiliations of the Author(s), their experience in offering tutorials, and Extended Abstract (1 page)
  • Table of content (as detailed as possible) up to 2 pages. The tutorial is not a report on scientific activity of the author(s), and we recommend that the tutorial content is divides in four parts: a) the review of the ideas which spawned the tutorial topic (25%), the review of the main publication which established the tutorial field (25%), the review of the scientific work of authors in the field of tutorial (25%), and the review of the main directions in the future development of tutorial field (25%).
  • List of the main references (books, papers, including the work of authors, not more than 1 page) pertaining to the tutorial topic. If possible, define a book which can be used as the tutorial textbook.
  • Biography of lecturer(s) with photograph(s).
  • Important dates:
