Abstract Submission

Authors submitting papers to the Compound Semiconductor Week (CSW) 2019 are required to submit a two-page abstract.

Deadline for abstract submission: January 11, 2019
Extended deadline: January 21, 2019


Please upload your abstract via the submission page in the above link.
A complete submission comprises the following three documents:

  • A two-page abstract (Upload a PDF file)
  • A 200-word short summary (Fill in the form on the abstract submission page)
  • An IEEE Copyright and Consent Form (Electronic copyright transfer on the IEEE web site after PDF file submission).

The official Conference Proceedings will be published and archived in IEEE Xplore. In the submission page, you are requested to choose between the two-page abstract OR the 200-word short summary for archival purposes. However, all accepted two-page abstracts will be distributed to the attendee of CSW 2019 via the USB memory stick.

The two-page abstract for CSW 2019 should be prepared using the following MS Word templates, which contain detailed abstract preparation and formatting instructions. The abstract file must be converted to PDF file using IEEE PDF eXpress before uploading a final manuscript.

IEEE PDF eXpress

Abstracts that do not follow these formatting rules will be automatically rejected. We strongly recommend using IEEE PDF eXpress for preparing the PDF abstract files since PDF files generated by other applications are often rejected by IEEE Xplore due to incompatibility with the IEEE format.

The CSW Best Student Paper Award was established for students who present their work as speakers or poster presenters. The awards are open only to students who are officially registered at a university by the abstract submission deadline.

CSW2019 Special Issue

We are planning to publish a special conference issue. The detail of the special issue will be announced in the “Publication” page.

Please note that those who plan to submit a paper to the special issue should avoid duplicate publication with IEEE Xplore. In particular, if you choose to archive the two-page abstract in IEEE Xplore, please be reminded that you will not be able to use the same text or figures for the special issue paper and are requested to add new results.
