The conference will provide an overview of the current state-of-the-art technology in Antennas, Propagation, and Measurements topics, highlighting the latest developments and innovations required for future applications.

Authors are invited to submit their contribution in the form of a full paper in PDF format, with a minimum length of two A4 pages and a maximum length of five A4 pages. The paper must contain enough information for the Technical Programme Committee (TPC) and reviewers to judge on the originality and quality of the work in a single acceptance/rejection review process (no change of the paper will be possible after acceptance).

Please note: Plagiarism and self-plagiarism is taken seriously by the EuCAP TPC members and reviewers, and papers showing evidence of this will be rejected.

Authors of the best accepted papers at EuCAP will be invited to submit an extended version for publication in a special issue of "IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation" or of a special issue of the "International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies (EuMA)"
