Author Instructions

The ASMC 2021 Call for Papers is Open!

  • Abstract topics
  • All technical manuscripts, regardless of presentation format, will be published in the ASMC 2021 proceedings. Authors who missed the call for papers should consider submitting an abstract in the 'Breaking News' category.

We strongly recommend that authors receive management approval, including travel support, in advance of abstract submission. If you cannot confirm that your paper will be presented in person, either by yourself, co-author or qualified speaker, your paper will not be published. 

ASMC 2021 could be held as a virtual event depending on progress in containing COVID-19. Whether the event is on-site or virtual, all technical papers accepted for presentation will be published by IEEE. If the conference takes place in Saratoga Springs, speakers would be given the option to present live or virtually. If held online, all speakers would be expected to deliver their presentations virtually.

It is critical that you include in your timeline company approval cycles, which may be a longer process than preparation of the actual manuscript and presentation. Please note the following dates and share this information with your co-author(s) and management. Conference registration is a requirement for participation and to receive the ASMC 2021 proceedings. Dates are subject to change.


2020 Best Paper Award Winners will be announced in the coming weeks.
