The IEEE International Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems (MWSCAS) is the oldest, and now the flagship, Circuits and Systems symposium. The 64th meeting of the MWSCAS is hosted by Michigan State University, in East Lansing, Michigan, USA, from Aug 8-11, 2021. The MWSCAS 2021 has pivoted to fully virtual symposium to add a sense of certainty supported and managed by the convenient CONFlux virtual platform . It will include oral and poster sessions, a student paper contest, keynote addresses, regular and special sessions, and tutorials presented by world experts in wide range of circuits and systems topics. The 2021 Symposium theme is artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous circuits and systems, and hopes to bring forward solutions to consequences of the COVID-19, from detection, testing to predictions. Topics include, but are not limited to:
Prospective authors are invited to submit a full paper (4 pages) describing original work through the on-line submission system for the conference through a link on the MWSCAS 2021 conference web- site. Papers should follow the formatting instructions given in the author’s kit on the website. Papers will be accepted for either lecture or poster presentation. Review criteria for both lecture and poster presentation formats are identical; the presentation format will be chosen to facilitate topical session grouping and time constraints. The presented papers will be nominated and chosen for the Myril Reed Best Paper Award. Also, students are encouraged to participate in the Best Student Paper Award contest. Submissions of demos and proposals for tutorials and special sessions are also solicited. Accepted papers will be published in the MWSCAS 2021 Proceedings subject to advance registration of at least one of the authors at the author rate. All papers published in the MWSCAS 2021 Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion into IEEEXplore. Moreover, a special issue will be published in the Springer journal of Analog Integrated Circuits and Signal processing based on extended versions of papers presented at the conference. Other cutting-edge special issues will be streamlined for IEEE transactions on circuits and systems (CAS_i and TBioCAS) based on extended versions of symposium papers.
The Greater Lansing Area in Michigan includes the Michigan Capital (Lansing) and is home to Michigan State University and a host of diverse industries, from automotive, communication, medical small tech companies. Michigan has several international Universities. Michigan, the home to the three lakes, has numerous natural sights for touring including islands and the beautiful “upper” peninsula. We will provide links to virtual touring of these magnificent landmarks.
