TIM Special Issue


Invitation to submit to the Special Issue of TIM:

The SAS 2011 Special Issue of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, intended to promote best results presented at SAS 2011, will be published. Authors are invited to submit their presented work from SAS 2011 (with sufficient technical extension) to the “SAS 2011 Special Issue” of the  IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement.

The SAS 2011 Special Issue will contain 10 papers selected on the basis of the results of regular peer review of the manuscripts submitted for consideration by the participants of SAS 2011. However, the remaining reviewed and accepted papers will appear in an upcoming regular issue of TIM. Each manuscript should be based on a paper published in the SAS 2011 Proceedings and presented at SAS 2011. 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 April 1– 15, 2011. Please DO NOT try to submit your papers earlier, since the SAS 2011 Special Issue folder in Allentrack will not be available.

Guest Editor:

Deniz Gurkan received her BS and MS degrees in 1996 and 1998 from Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey and PhD degree in 2003 from the University of Southern California, all in Electrical Engineering. In 2004, she has taught at the Claremont Graduate University, Applied Mathematics Program and the California State University at Long Beach Electrical Engineering Department before joining the University of Houston’s Department of Engineering Technology as a faculty. During her PhD studies, she has demonstrated optical networking functions with all-optical setups. As an assistant professor, her research interests has been in computer networks, optical networking, sensor network standard development, measurement systems for healthcare, fiber-optic communications, and aerospace systems. She has authored and co-authored more than 50 peer-reviewed technical papers in her field of research.

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 SAS 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 SAS 2010 proceedings paper.
  3. The SAS 2010 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 SAS 2010 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.
