Special Issue


The I²MTC 2010 Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, intended to promote best results presented at I²MTC 2010, will be published in May 2011.

The I²MTC 2010 Special Issue will contain 40-60 papers selected on the basis of the results of regular peer review of the manuscripts submitted for consideration by the participants of I²MTC 2010. Each manuscript should be based on a paper published in the I²MTC 2010 Proceedings and presented at I²MTC 2010. 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 June 4th to the 20th, 2010. Please DO NOT try to submit your papers earlier, since the I2MTC Special Issue folder in Allentrack will not be available. NO LATE MANUSCRIPTS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

Guest Editors

Mark Yeary, Co-Guest Editor of the I²MTC 2010 Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on
Instrumentation and Measurement, received the B.S.E.E (honors), M.S.E.E., and Ph.D.E.E
from Texas A&M University in 1992, 1994 and 1999, respectively. Following his graduation in
1999, he continued his digital signal processing based research and leda variety of industrial
projects, including ones from IBM, Raytheon, Cisco, Texas Instruments, Lockheed-Martin, etc.
Since the fall of 2002, he has been a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and
Computer Engineering, University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK. He currently holds the academic
rank of tenured Associate Professor, and he was recently named the Hudson-Torchmark
Presidential Professor at OU. This presidential professorship was endowed by Charles Hudson
of the Torchmark Corporation. He is founding member of the Atmospheric Radar Research Center
(ARRC). The ARRC currently leads 40 graduate students.His current and recently funded projects
include ones from the AFOSR, NOAA, ONR, NSF, and NASA.

Dr. Yeary is a licensed Professional Engineer (P.E.), a Senior Member of the IEEE, and has been
a member of the IEEE’s I&M Society for 15 years. He is member of the Tau Beta Pi and Eta Kappa
Nu honor societies. He is also a member of the AMS and is a CIMMS Fellow. He specializes in
the areas of digital signal processing, embedded DSP systems, and radar engineering. He teaches courses in these
areas and has published over 125 related conference/journal articles. He has spent the last eight summers at Raytheon in
Texas as an engineer in the Dallas area.

Wendy Van Moer received the Engineer and Ph. D. degrees in applied sciences from the
Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Brussels, Belgium, in 1997 and 2001, respectively.
She is currently an Associate professor with the Electrical Measurement Department (ELEC),
VUB. Her main research interests are nonlinear measurement and modeling techniques
for medical and high-frequency applications. She has published over 100 related
conference/journal articles.

She was the recipient of the 2006 Outstanding Young Engineer Award from the IEEE
Instrumentation and Measurement Society of which she became a member in 1997 and
a Senior member in 2007. Since 2007 she has been an Associate editor for the IEEE
Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement.



Preparation for manuscript submission

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. The following additional requirements must also be satisfied when submitting the manuscript:

  1. The manuscript must be TECHNICALLY extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper, as mentioned above.
  2. At the time of submission, the authors must provide detailed information regarding how the manuscript is a technically-extended version of the proceedings paper, as per the instructions below.
  3. The proceedings paper MUST be clearly referred to in the text and listed as one of the references in the special-issue manuscript.
  4. A PDF copy of the proceedings paper must also be submitted, as per the instructions below.

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 the proper Special Issue (i.e., I2MTC 10 Special Issue).  Subsequently, in the same page and in the “Files to Upload” section you MUST upload two files; one with 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 I2MTC 2010 Proceedings paper.  To this end, you must put the number “2” in the small box in front of “Extension Beyond Proceedings & Copy of Proceedings (if any was published)” 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 I2MTC Proceedings paper will result in the immediate return of the manuscript to the author(s) as an unacceptable submission.

Notice: The I2MTC 2010 paper identifier should be put in the upper right-hand corner of every document to be submitted.
