The Forty-second Annual Meeting of the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS 2007) will be held Sept. 23 - 27, 2007 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA.  The Meeting will address the technical interests related to industrial applications of electrical energy.  Papers are solicited on any subject pertaining to the Scope of the Technical Committees of the IEEE Industry Applications Society.  Papers that include industry participation are strongly encouraged.  Each technical session will be tied to a Committee's interest area.  Papers will be selected by the Committees sponsoring technical sessions at the Annual Meeting according to their scopes.  Panel sessions and products and service sessions are also welcome; contact the person identified for each technical committee for more information.  Further information about the conference and the technical program may be obtained from the conference web site located at https://www.ieee.org/ias2007.

Abstracts and digests (or full papers for submissions to the Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Department) shall be sent directly to the designated Technical Committee or Department Program Chair identified in this call for papers. Please note that certain Technical Committees may have somewhat different abstract and digest requirements as delineated in their call for papers below.  After review, each corresponding author will be notified of acceptance by the Technical Committee and will receive instructions regarding preparation and submission of the final manuscript to be reproduced in the conference record.  These communications will be conducted via email and internet so a working email address and internet access is required for each corresponding author.  Presented papers are eligible for review and publication in the IEEE Industry Applications Society Transactions.  These Transactions reviews are conducted by the individual technical committees.
Please do not submit the same abstract to more than one Technical Committee or Department.  Duplication could result in rejection of the paper.

Please note that not all IAS Technical Committees have sessions at the IAS Annual Meeting.  If a committee contact is not given in this call for papers, please contact the appropriate IAS Technical Committee Chair or IAS Technical Department Chair for further information.  The IAS Technical Committee Chairs are listed in the IAS Organizational Manual and Membership Directory.  Additional information can also be obtained via the Society website: https://www.ewh.ieee.org/soc/ias/.

Some technical committees may also sponsor Products and Services sessions at the Annual Meeting.  These sessions consist of oral presentations only and there are no written papers.  These sessions are oriented towards the interests of industry and presentations may be of a somewhat more commercial nature than is possible in the standard technical sessions.  Persons interested in developing a presentation for a Products and Services session should check with the appropriate Technical Committee Program Chair about possible scheduling.       

General Abstract & Digest Requirements:
Electronic submission of abstracts and digests is strongly encouraged and may be required by some technical committees.  If electronic submission is not utilized, prospective authors shall submit four copies each of abstract and digest, typed and double spaced on 8.5 by 11 inch  (or A4 size) paper, to the appropriate area of interest Technical Committee Program Chair:
• one page abstract of fifty to one hundred words with fully headed paper title, names of all authors, area of interest, and name and address of the corresponding author, including phone, fax, and e-mail address.
• digest of up to four pages, including key equations, figures, and tables, headed by the paper title only. The digest must state: purpose of work, manner in which it advances engineering and/or science, and specific results and their significance in sufficient detail for undergoing a review process.
• The abstract and digest must be submitted as two separate files.

Communications with Authors
It is essential that the corresponding author for a paper have a working email address and internet access as communications with authors will be conducted via e-mail and the conference web site.  It is also essential that the corresponding author pay very close attention to SPAM filters that may be applied to incoming email to insure that communications regarding the conference are not incorrectly blocked as SPAM.  To help avoid problems associated with SPAM filters, all mass emails sent from the conference organizers will be archived on the conference web site and each corresponding author is responsible for regularly checking this web site archive for information which they may not have received via regular email.

Authors' Deadlines:
January 15, 2007:    Abstract and digest of proposed papers from authors received by the Technical Committee Program Chairs.  Full papers received by the Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Department.
March 31, 2007:    Notification to authors of acceptance or rejection from the Technical Committee Program Chairs. Authors' information received by authors of papers selected for presentation from the Annual Meeting Technical Program Chair.
June 1, 2007:    Completed papers and IEEE Copyright forms received. It should be noted that this is a firm deadline and that the processing of late papers will not be possible.     

Note that each paper that is scheduled for presentation must be accompanied by a qualified paid registration.  In general, student registrations are not considered qualified registrations.  Also note that each qualifying registration can be associated with at most two papers—authors with more than two accepted papers will be responsible for additional costs (or a co-author may also register at a qualifying rate).  Full details are provided on the conference web site. For further information, you may contact the technical program coordinator for the conference via email at ias-tpc@ieee.org or the appropriate contact person identified on the conference web site.

The following Departments and Technical Committees will sponsor sessions at IAS 2007.   Abstracts and digests should be submitted directly to the Technical Committee Program Chair listed.  This person may also be contacted for clarification of information that is contained in the full call for papers.
