The International Microwave Symposium (IMS), to be held May 23-28 at the Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA, will feature some 250 technical papers presented in over five dozen sessions representing the latest research in the field from around the world and organized in four technical tracks: Microwave Field and Circuit Techniques; Passive RF and Microwave Components; Active RF and Microwave Components; and Microwave Systems and Applications, along with the world’s largest microwave industry exhibition featuring over 875 booths from more than 540 exhibitors.

“We have some new, exciting and diverse technical presentations this year ranging from scavenging power from radio frequency fields, high-power microwaves for industrial and material processing, and new findings on millimeter wave and Terahertz technology,” said IMS2010 Technical Program Committee Chair, Madhu S. Gupta. “IMS is the ultimate place to gather and learn about the latest developments in research and applications.”

Many significant research breakthroughs will be discussed in this year’s technical sessions at IMS. Additionally there are 122 papers being presented as interactive forum papers to allow one-on-one discussion with presenters. There are numerous opportunities for technical exchange with presenters of oral and interactive forum papers to ask questions, and conduct lively debate. There is also a student paper contest showcasing impressive skills from the engineers of tomorrow. The symposium is an opportunity to refresh skills or build new ones via short courses or Microapps seminars from the vendors of products and services in the microwave industry to assist in learning the latest techniques, skills and methods.
