Special Section on the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Computational Electromagnetics (ICCEM 2020)

Expected online publication: December 2020

The 2020 volume of the IEEE Journal on Multiscale and Multiphysics Computational Techniques (IEEE J-MMCT) will include a special section dedicated to the 2020 IEEE International Conference on Computational Electromagnetics (ICCEM 2020). Authors of all papers relevant to topics of interest of J-MMCT accepted by ICCEM 2020 are invited to submit an expanded version of their papers to this special section. The expanded version requires that the new technical content will include a more in-depth treatment, new results beyond the ICCEM 2020 paper, or both. The J-MMCT Editorial Board will review every paper in the same manner as any other regular submission.

Paper submission is accomplished through the ScholarOne Manuscript Central website (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmmct-ieee). When you start a new submission to the special section, please choose ICCEM 2020 as the type of your submission.

When you prepare your manuscript you should consult the instructions, templates and resources available at the IEEE Authors’ Center (https://ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org). Papers not following the standard IEEE journal template cannot be accepted into the peer review process. Please be aware that your contribution should be prepared as any other regular J-MMCT paper and that it will be evaluated via the same peer-review process. The quality of your contribution must meet the level required for a publication at J-MMCT.

Because of the time required for a second review cycle, papers receiving a major revision decision are not guaranteed to be published in the 2020 special section for ICCEM 2020, but may be published in the 2021 volume, if the paper is accepted.

Other Submission instructions:
  • The conference(s) paper(s) must be included along with the submission as supplementary
  • You must reference your own work, especially recent journal/conference Discuss your related publications, especially the relevant conference paper, in the introduction. Distinguish the new results you present in your current manuscript from those found in your previous publications, to demonstrate that the paper includes sufficient new technical material to justify a new paper, when compared to all previously published papers.
  • The following note should be added to the footnote on the first page of the paper: “This paper is an expanded version of a conference paper accepted by IEEE ICCEM 2020, Singapore

Submissions are accepted any time, but no later than August 31, 2020, 11:59 PM (Hawaii Standard Time). There will be no extension to this deadline, to ensure that the review process in concluded in time for the 2020 volume.
