The ARMMS RF & Microwave Society is an independent professional society comprised of individuals with an interest in the design, production and measurement of devices and products operating at RF and Microwave frequencies. Two meetings are held each year in the style of a small conference and associated exhibition.  A wide range of technical papers is presented and proceedings are distributed to each delegate. 

The conference will begin with a buffet lunch on Monday 19 November and will end on the afternoon of Tuesday 20 November at around with the Best Paper award. A highlight of each meeting is the Monday night Society dinner, which provides an invaluable opportunity to meet like-minded colleagues and, as always, the conference will be accompanied by a small commercial exhibition.
