Submission Deadline: 31 May 2021
Aims & Scope: Compact devices, small mobile terminals, personal communication components and IoT applications have become an integral part of our daily life. Designing antennas for such devices and components implies miniaturized size and low energy consumption requirements, which must ensure a constant impedance match at an operating frequency. A solution to overcome mismatch or efficiency drawbacks is to adopt reconfigurable antenna components for these devices. Reconfigurable antennas can exhibit tuning of frequency, radiation pattern reconfiguration, polarization diversity, or a combination of these properties.
The IEEE Open Journal of Antennas and Propagation (OJAP) will publish a Special Section devoted to the 2020 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting. The Special Section will discuss novel reconfigurable antenna designs and concepts that are proposed for compact devices, integrated within a plethora of platforms and applications. The topic targeted is timely, of large interest to the community and highly focused to both academia and industry. Authors of original research papers related to Reconfigurable Antennas for Compact Devices presented at the conference are invited to submit expanded versions of their papers to this Special Section. The expanded version requires significantly new technical content and results beyond the conference paper. Every paper will be reviewed in the same manner as regular submissions to this journal.
- Papers should be submitted through the journal’s submission site, by selecting the Special Section’s title in the menu for “Manuscript Type”.
- The conference paper should be included with the submission.
- The following note should be added to the footnote on the first page of the paper: “This paper is extended from presentation at the 2020 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting.”
- The Special Section welcomes contributions by all potential authors, including authors outside the conference, that have material well-fitted to the Special Section’s topic.
