International Microwave Symposium 2013

International Microwave Symposium 2013
 June 2, 2013Seattle, WA USAwww.ims2013.org

The IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) is the premier annual international meeting for technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice. It consists of a full week of events, including technical paper presentations, workshops, and tutorials, as well as a full set of social events. The symposium also hosts a large commercial exhibition featuring over 550 companies.

The IEEE MTT-S Microwave Week has several conferences that are co-located at the same venues. Besides the flagship IMS Conference, Microwave Week also hosts the IEEE RFIC and ARFTG conferences.? To view more information on their programs, please visit www.rfic2013.org and www.arftg.org.? Registration and hotel accommidations for Microwave Week will be handled by the IMS Steering Committee and MP Associates.

2013 is almost here! Join us in Seattle, Washington ?to experience the IEEE International Microwave Symposium in the Pacific Northwest.? The IMS2013 will be the centerpiece of Microwave Week, 2 - 7 June 2013. IMS2013 offers technical sessions, interactive forums, plenary and panel sessions, workshops, short courses, industrial exhibits, application seminars, historical exhibits, and a wide array of other technical and social activities.
