Conference Call for Papers

The International Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics is the premier international meeting on microwave photonic devices, systems, and applications.

The broadband, low-loss transmission capability of optical fiber links has led to much interest in their use in the distribution and control of microwave and millimeter-wave signals. Application areas include antenna remoting for wireless data and cellular radio systems, optically controlled phased array antennas, optical processing of microwave signals and broadband cable television distribution. Photonics enables new microwave system functions such as long delays lines, fast spectrum analysis, frequency conversion, probing and control of microwave devices, low phase-noise oscillators, and ultra-fast analog-to-digital converters. Conversely, microwave techniques are enabling new generations of optical communication systems with capabilities exceeding 1 Tb/s/fiber.

Associated with the evolution of these systems is the development of high-speed optical sources, modulators and detectors with bandwidths extending into the millimeter-wave region.

The International Topical Meeting on Microwave Photonics provides a forum for the presentation of new advances in this multi-disciplinary research area, ranging from novel devices to systems field trials. It is held annually and rotates between the Americas, the Asia-Pacific region and Europe.

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.

Research.com

During the most recent 2020 edition, 5.88% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 31.25% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 14.06% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 14.06% of all publications and 40.62% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.

The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).
