Proceedings Paper Submission/Author Instructions

The 2012 IEEE International Power Modulator and High Voltage Conference Proceedings of the papers will be published in a print version and on CD-ROM from your original file of the papers. A technical manuscript is expected for each abstract that has been accepted into the conference technical program. There are tremendous lasting rewards for your paper to be included in the conference proceedings, as they will serve as a permanent record in the literature and be available on IEEE Xplore®.

Manuscripts will NOT be accepted for publication in the conference proceedings or in IEEE Xplore® if the oral or poster presentation is not given by one of the authors (as identified in the abstract) at the proper session/slot in the technical program. The author must also be a registered attendee of the conference.

All manuscripts must be submitted electronically by 5:00 PM, Friday June 15, 2012 and follow the format for IEEE conference papers. The submission website will be the same as that used for abstract collection and will be available on May 1, 2012 to begin accepting manuscripts.

Manuscript templates are provided below. Two different versions are available with one set up for letter size paper and one utilizing A4.

This issue is open to any and all potential authors. Presenters of papers at the 2012 IEEE International Power Modulator and High Voltage Conference are especially encouraged to submit their work to this special issue.
