Luca Perregrini (M’97-SM’12-F’16) was born in Sondrio, Italy, in 1964. He received the Laurea degree in electronic engineering and Ph.D. degree in electronics and computer science in 1989 and 1993, respectively.
In 1992, he joined the Faculty of Engineering, University of Pavia, Pavia, Italy, where he is currently a Full Professor of electromagnetic fields and responsible for the Microwave Laboratory. He was a Visiting Professor with the Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal, QC, Canada, in 2001, 2002, 2005, and 2006.
He has been responsible for many research contracts with prominent international research centers and companies.
He has authored or co-authored over 100 journal papers and over 300 conference papers, 6 book chapters, and 2 textbooks, and co-edited Periodic Structures (Res. Signpost, 2006). His current research interests include the development of numerical methods for electromagnetics and the design of microwave components and antennas.
He served as a member of Prize Committees for several conferences/societies.
He is a member of the Technical Committee MTT-1 (Field Theory and Computational EM) of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Technique Society (MTT-S) and the Board of Directors of EuMA.
He was the co-recipient of several Best Paper Awards at international conferences, and has been an invited speaker at many conferences, and has delivered invited seminar talks at universities and research centers worldwide.
He was the Technical Program Committee Chair of the International Microwave Workshop Series on Advanced Materials and Processes, Pavia, Italy, in 2017, of the IEEE MTT-S International Conference on Numerical Electromagnetic Modeling and Optimization, Pavia, in 2014, and of the European Microwave Conference, Rome, Italy, in 2014.
Dr. Perregrini was a member of the General Assembly of the European Microwave Association (EuMA) (2011-2013). He was an Associate Editor of IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters (2010-2013), the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques from 2013 to 2016, the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies (2011-2016), and IET Electronic Letters (2015-2016). He was a Guest Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques in 2015 and the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies in 2015.
He was the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques for the term 2017-2019.
The talk will focus on the various aspects related to the writing of a technical paper, with specific reference to IEEE publications. In particular, the preparation phase, the organization of the manuscript, the appropriate referencing, and some stylistic aspects will be discussed.
Moreover, the peer review process will be presented in details, with specific reference to the IEEE journals, and, in particular, to the hands-on experience of the speaker.
Last but not least, ethical issues related to the scientific research are also addressed.
