As most reading this already know, the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) is the flagship event of the RF/microwave industry each year. This year’s version, which will take place in Philadelphia this June, promises to be no different. However, before IMS gets underway, several events scheduled for the month of April may be worthy of your attention.
For one, those in the Long Island area may want to check out the Long Island RF/Microwave Symposium & Exhibits on Thursday, April 5th. It will take place at the Radisson Hotel in Hauppauge, N.Y. from noon to 8 p.m.
The show will consist of an exhibition and several technical lectures. Registered attendees will receive admission to the exhibit floor, technical lectures, and complimentary networking lunch and dinner. The first 200 registered attendees will also receive a complimentary swag bag that contains gifts from the exhibitors.
Another event to take note of is the 2018 IEEE Wireless and Microwave Technology Conference (WAMICON 2018), which will convene April 9th and 10th at the Sheraton Sand Key in Clearwater Beach, Fla. The central theme is “mm-Waves and Internet of Things (IoT) for Commercial and Defense.” Among the highlights of WAMICON 2018 are two plenary presentations and a workshop on additive manufacturing. There’s a session on RF/microwave education titled “RF/Microwave Education: Where are we headed?” Also on tap are a poster session and a young professionals workshop.
Not to be outdone, the fifth annual Brooklyn 5G Summit will take place April 24th-27th at the NYU Tandon School of Engineering in Brooklyn, N.Y. Its focus is “overall 5G system design across the entire spectrum range, progress in 5G channel modeling, and 5G regulatory aspects.” In addition, the 5G Summit will examine “concrete use cases for 5G in the evolving IoT space.” Several keynotes and panel sessions, in addition to exhibits, are among the highlights. Exhibiting companies include Keysight Technologies, National Instruments, and Rohde & Schwarz.
While the industry prepares for IMS in June, these events in the interim during April have lots to offer. And then before you know it, IMS will be right around the corner!
