Manuscript Submission

This year the PVSC is fully virtual.  Your manuscript, copyright and presentation will all be uploaded at the same time.  The deadline for submission of all items is June 9, 2020 (11:59 PM your local time). While the PVSC is still following our No Paper-No Podium/No Podium-No Paper Rule, we understand the global pandemic has disrupted research.  Thus, you are free to submit either a full conference proceeding (up to 8 pages) or a brief summary (1-2 pages) of you work.  However, we still ask that you use either the Word or LaTeX templates given below. 

Step 1: 
Prepare your manuscript. Your final submission must use either the PVSC 2020 MS Word template or the equivalent LATeX template (ZIP). For other unsupported word processing systems please follow the official manuscript guidelines (PDF). 

Please remove all page numbers from your manuscript.  There is an eight (8) page size limit on all submittals. Please follow the IEEE two-column format specified in the template or your submission will be rejected.  Note that for PVSC 47 in 2020, a new manuscript template is being used and prior year templates are obsolete.
