IMS MicroApps

The Microwave Application Seminars (MicroApps) –scheduled for the Palais des congrès de Montréal (Montréal Convention Center), June 19-21, 2012, as part of IMS 2012 –is a series of concise application note technical presentations given by exhibitors that are distinct and separate from yet complementary to the IEEE technical sessions.  MicroApps are engineering topics of interest to the microwave community and cover new products, noteworthy state-of-the-art materials, components and measurement tools, and novel manufacturing and design techniques that incorporate the exhibitor’s products and technologies in an application-centric setting.

This year’s program is the mostsuccessful yet, offering more than 79 presentations on a diverse range of topics that include hardware, software and test. There will be 76 application notes, two keynote addresses and one panel session.

This year, Wednesday admission to the exhibit floorand also to the MicroApps Symposium is free. This means even more can take advantage of the special talks that day, which include a keynote presentation, “James Clerk Maxwell Part II” by Dr. James Rautio and the Microwave Journal Panel Session, “Device Characterization Methods and Advanced RF/Microwave Design.” This special panel session takes place in the MicroApps theatre from 12:00 to 1:30 PM on Wednesday. This session will have leading companies in the field make presentations on the latest technology and techniques available followed by a question and answer period with the presenters. Attendees can also grab a whiskey shot Wednesday evening at the industry-hosted reception in honor of Maxwell and his Scotland heritage (sponsored by Sonnet).

MicroApps sessions are open to everyone, thanks to sponsorship by Agilent Technologies. The MicroApps theatre is conveniently located in the midst of the exhibits. The complete and up-to-date MicroApps Symposium schedule can be found in the IMS Program Book or online at A MicroApps CD of all the presentations will be available for free to all, and those who are unable to attend in person will be able to order the CD from Agilent, watch the Microwave Journal webcast of the Panel Session and view the virtual presentations online at the website.

Come to MicroApps, learn and enjoy. We look forward to seeing you in Montréal, Canada.
