Graduate Student Fellowship Application Deadline is December 31, 2010
Students are encouraged to apply for the 10 graduate fellowships that the MTT-S sponsors every year. These fellowships are available to all graduate students who are continuing their research in the broad areas of interest to our Society. Each award consists of USD $6000 to support the student’s research and up to an additional USD $1000 for travel expenses to receive the award at the International Microwave Symposium. The next awards will be distributed in June 2011. The deadline for the applications is December 31, 2010.
Two of the ten fellowships are reserved for those students involved in research related to the application of electromagnetic techniques for medical problems. The remaining eight awards cover all the other topic areas active in our MTT-S.
Full rules and application forms are available at http://www.mtt.org/students-and-faculty.html.
Students who apply for the Medical Applications fellowships are not eligible to apply for the other fellowships in the same year. Also, students who apply for the two Medical Applications fellowships need not be a member of MTT-S at the time of application, but must join MTT-S before receiving the award in June 2011.
MTT-S also sponsors ten scholarships for undergraduate students to encourage their interest in microwave technologies. Rules and application forms for these awards are also listed on the MTT-S website. The deadlines for these undergraduate awards are May 1 for the Fall semester and November 1 for the Spring semester of each year.
IEEE Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology
The Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology has opened its submission site for general articles ( www.thz.ieee.org - SUBMIT A PAPER). We welcome prospective authors to contribute to this new IEEE publication. General topic areas are listed on the web page. The journal will maintain the high standards of the IEEE Transactions while keeping publication turnaround times extremely short. Our goal is to have rapid posting through IEEE Xplore of accepted articles within three months of submission.
The inaugural issue is targeted for release in the fall of 2011. This issue will emphasize broad area review papers and breakthrough THz technologies and applications. Potential contributors to the inaugural issue should submit manuscripts in one or more of the topic areas listed here on or before March 1, 2011 and to contact one or more of the Topic Editors at firstname.lastname@example.org. Subsequent issues are open to all relevant contributions and accepted articles will be posted electronically before the Inaugural issue appears in print. For questions or further details contact the editors at email@example.com.
