South African IEEE Joint AP/MTT/EMC Chapter Conference 2024



August 1 – 2, Stias Conference Centre, Marais Rd, Stellenbosch, South Africa,

You are invited to the 2024 edition of the biennial conference of the South African IEEE Joint Chapter on Antennas and Propagation (AP), Microwave Theory and Techniques (MTT) and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), which will be held in Stellenbosch, on 1 and 2 August 2024 at the Stias Conference Centre.

This conference brings together engineers and researchers from industry and academia who work in fields related to AP, MTT, and EMC in South Africa. Students are particularly encouraged to attend, through a reduced registration rate and poster session.

Topics covered will include, but are not limited to, research and development work in the areas of antennas, radar and remote sensing, electromagnetic compatibility and interference, active and passive microwave devices, radio astronomy engineering, propagation, spectrum management, computational electromagnetics and modeling, measurements and testing, etc.

With this edition, both invited and self-submitted contributions form part of the programme, as well as a few international, plenary speakers. The banquet is scheduled for the evening of August 1. The conference includes an exhibition by our sponsors listed below. We thank them for their invaluable support!

Contributions: types, submission procedures and deadlines

  • Invited contributions: the TPC may invite presenters to contribute, with details of procedures included with the invitation.
  • General contributions (non students): Contributions from the wider community are encouraged. Please send your abstract in MS Word DOCX format, using the template below, to by the deadline of 14 April 2024. The TPC will communicate acceptance by 31 May 2024, in time for the early-bird registration deadline. All presenters must register by the early-bird registration deadline, to ensure that their contribution is included in the technical programme. The TPC will assign either an oral presentation (15+5 min) or a poster presentation (A1 size) format for these contributions. The format requirement will be communicated to the presenter by 30 June 2024, at the latest. In case of submissions beyond the capacity of the venue, the TPC will reject latest received submissions.
  • Student contributions: there will be a student poster session. Any student registrant may elect to display a poster (A1 size), by providing the poster title as part of the early-bird registration process (no abstract details needed). Given the display space limit, contributions will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis. Postdocs are not students and should follow the instructions for general contributions.

Early-bird registrations include attendance of all technical sessions, lunch on both days and attendance of the conference banquet on Thursday evening.

Late and on-site registrations include the same as early registrations, except that only a limited number of banquet seats will be available to these registrants, on a first-come-first-served basis.

In case of an early student registration, a signed declaration from the study leader must be uploaded during the registration process. It must confirm (a) the status of the registrant as a full-time student at a recognised institution of higher education; and (b) that the registrant does not earn a salary. Thus, students should have this ready before the early-bird deadline.
