One of the greatest and most prestigious achievements a Chapter
or section can reach is that of hosting the IEEE International
Symposium on EMC, which is held annually, traditionally in the
month of August.
IEEE EMC Symposia are scheduled five years in advance, and therefore;
it is time to plan for the 2009 Symposium.
The Board of Directors of the EMC Society is therefore soliciting
proposals for hosting the 2009 IEEE International Symposium on
Proposals should be submitted by an IEEE EMC Chapter (or chapters)
with acknowledgement by the local Section, which are interested
in leading the organizing and hosting of the Symposium.
Any Chapter, including Chapters who have hosted symposia in the
past, may submit proposals and will be considered. In addition,
there may be a location that does not have a Chapter per se, but
has interest and association with nearby areas that do have Chapters.
We will look at those opportunities as long as there is a clear
leadership team available.
Proposals should address but not be limited to:
Hotels and accommodation availability
Attractiveness to industry (both for Symposium
exhibitors and local businesses)
Activities and attractions which would draw
City municipality/state support
Expected cost of conference facilities
Organizing entity, proposed chair and core
Section endorsement and support
A more detailed description of the above and
a Symposium checklist for submitting your proposal may be obtained

Symposia, at: firstname.lastname@example.org
