Special Issue


The Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (TIM) on MeMeA 2011 will be published. The Special Issue will contain papers selected on the basis of the results of regular peer review of the manuscripts submitted for consideration by the participants of MeMeA 2011. Each manuscript should meet the scope of the TIM and be based on a paper published in the symposium proceedings and presented. However, the manuscript must be significantly extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper in terms of the overall technical content and research results.

Special issue manuscript may ONLY be uploaded in the period of August 29 – September 19, 2011. Please DO NOT try to submit your papers earlier, since the MEMEA 2011 Special Issue folder in Allentrack will not be available.

Requirements for ALL submissions:

The manuscript, together with the accompanying documents “viz. the manuscript submission cover letter, the IEEE copyright transfer form, and the overlength page charge form” must be submitted electronically using the web-based submission system. Prior to submission of the manuscript, its author, especially if he/she has not yet used that system, should register and obtain a password that will enable him/her to enter the system and read Authors Instructions and Manuscript Upload Instructions. Both instructions contain information of vital importance for the problem-free submission. In particular, Authors Instructions provide the guidelines for the preparation of the manuscript.

  1. The paper must be TECHNICALLY extended beyond the scope of the paper that have appeared in the MEMEA 2011.
  2. At the time of submission, the authors must provide detailed information (in a separate file to be uploaded as part of the submission process) regarding how the paper is a technically extended version of the MEMEA 2011 proceedings paper.
  3. The MEMEA 2011 proceedings paper MUST be clearly referred to in the text and listed as one of the references in the special-issue paper.
  4. A PDF copy of the MEMEA 2011 proceedings paper must be submitted at the time of special-issue paper submission.

When uploading your manuscript click on “Special Issue Manuscript” in the “Manuscript Upload Instructions” page of the Allentrack System.  Then, in page #1 of “Submit Manuscript” you must choose “SAS 2011 Special Issue.”  Subsequently, in the same page and in the “Files to Upload” section you MUST upload two files; one containing a detailed explanation of how the paper is TECHNICALLY extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper and another which is a PDF copy of the Conference Proceedings paper.  To this end, you must put the number “2” in the small box in front of “Extension Beyond Proceedings & Copy of Proceedings” so that the system allows you to upload these two files. Consequently, these two files will be available to the reviewers.

Failure to submit a detailed explanation of the TECHNICAL extension and a PDF copy of the Proceedings paper will result in the immediate return of the manuscript to the author(s) as an unacceptable submission.

Notice: The SAS 2011 paper identifier should be put in the upper right-hand corner of every document to be submitted.
