The Long Island Systems, Applications and Technology (LISAT) Conference features several parallel professional tracks including topics in systems, applications, and technology; a PDH program and an Exhibition.   We are soliciting submissions for participation in both the technical program, applications program, and the exhibition, and are interested in papers, presentations, and exhibits that showcase the development and use of technology by local organizations. Small and Large Businesses, Government Agencies, Undergraduate and Graduate students are encouraged to submit papers in an area of their interest or current work. LISAT 2019 will also include Distinguished Lecture presentations on topics of strong interest to the scientific and engineering community and will provide the opportunity for select student papers to be presented.

Authors shall be required to provide a six (6) page IEEE standard manuscript for submission for publication in IEEE Xplore, and will be required to make a Power PointTM presentation at the conference. Manuscripts are subject to the LISAT Technical Program Committee’s peer review and may require revision prior to final acceptance.  Important dates for the Technical Program are:

Detailed instructions on submission, manuscript and presentation templates, and information on the conference are available on the LISAT web site at .  Manuscript format must agree with requirements specified in the Author’s Kit, which will be made available. 

Each presentation will be up to 15 minutes long followed by 5 minutes of Q&A. At least one author must register for the conference for each paper/presentation.  A maximum of two (2) papers may be presented by a single presenter, provided a second registration is made.  A limited number of tutorial and application presentations, which will not be published by the IEEE, may also be accepted.

LISAT encourages submissions from all areas of engineering, science, and technology. Topics of particular interest include Surveillance & Navigation Systems, Communications (Military and Commercial), Sensors and Advanced Electronics, Photonics, Fiber Optics and Wireless Technologies and Applications, Data Acquisition, Analysis and Computational Science, Microelectronics and Antennas for Commercial, Military and Space-Based Applications, Nanomaterials, Climate, Environment and Biosciences, Energy and Cyber Security and Health Sciences and Health Care.

LISAT has a strict “No Podium, No Publish” policy.  "Manuscripts will only be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore if a presentation is made at the Conference."
