Join us in Long Beach, CA, for the second Radio & Wireless Week (RWW) events January 7–12, 2007, not only to learn about the latest technological, scientific and commercial developments, but also to see friends and experience the Southern California lifestyle with its excellent climate, food and shoreline beauty, all wrapped in one package. The RWW collocates three prestigious conferences and one major commercial exhibition. The overall focus is on key technologies covering device level to system level for the advancement of current radio and wireless systems as well as creating new concepts and breakthroughs for next generation networks.

The centerpiece of the week is the IEEE Radio and Wireless Symposium (RWS), which continues the evolution of the successful Radio and Wireless Conference (RAWCON). Three IEEE Societies support the RWS—the ComSoc and AP provide technical co-sponsorship and the MTT-S provides sponsorship. The RWS brings together a unique mix of communications systems and RF implementations via high quality invited and contributed papers, a rump session, workshops and short courses. Don’t miss our daily Special Invited Session on “Enabling Technologies for the Next Generation Radio and Wireless Networks,” lectured by world-class speakers from industry and academia.

The IEEE Topical Symposium on Power Amplifiers for Wireless Communications (PAS) and Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems (SiRF) are also key parts of the program. The PAS has been bringing leading RF power amplifier engineers together for many years, and will continue that tradition. SiRF has for years presented the latest in silicon RF technologies and applications and will continue its strong tradition.

With these three conferences and a large commercial exhibition along with social events including free receptions and daily breakfast and lunch, we offer you a convenient opportunity to receive a comprehensive update in all the technical and commercial facets of the rapidly changing radio and wireless landscape. I look forward to seeing you in Long Beach!

Mohammad Madihian
General Chairman, 2007 Radio and Wireless Symposium

Mohammad Madihian joined NEC Central Research Laboratories, Kawasaki, Japan, in 1983, where he worked on research and development of Si and GaAs device-based digital as well as microwave and millimeter-wave monolithic ICs. In 1999, he moved to NEC Laboratories America Inc., Princeton, NJ, and is presently the department head where he conducts PHY/MAC layer signal processing activities for high speed wireless networks and personal communications applications. He has edited a book called CMOS-RF and Its Application to Wireless Network Terminals (Anthology), Tokyo, Japan: Toriceps, Nov. 2001. He has authored or co-authored more than 140 journal and conference publications including 25 invited talks, and holds 70 Japan/US registered or pending patents on device, circuit and system for wireless applications. Dr. Madihian received the IEEE MTT-S Best Paper Microwave Prize in 1988 and the IEEE Fellow Award in 1998. He holds eight NEC Distinguished R&D Achievement Awards. He has served as Guest Editor to the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, Japan IEICE Transactions on Electronics, and IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques. He is currently serving on the IEEE Speaker’s Bureau, IEEE Compound Semiconductor IC Symposium Executive Committee, IEEE Radio & Wireless Symposium Executive Committee, IEEE International Microwave Symposium Technical Program Committee, IEEE MTT-S Editorial Board and Asia Pacific Microwave Conference Technical Program Committee. Dr. Madihian is an adjunct professor in the electrical and computer engineering department at Drexel University, and the Editor-in-Chief, International Journal of Microwave Science and Technology.
