With IMS 2013 less than one week away, I know everyone here at Microwave Journal is gearing up and ready to go. It is one show (aside from European Microwave Week and Electronic Design Innovation – EDI CON) where a majority of our staff attends the show and you can feel the excitement as we look forward to connecting with much of the industry all in one venue. The IEEE MTT-S IMS is the premier annual international meeting for technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice. It consists of a full week of events, including technical paper presentations, workshops, and tutorials, as well as a full set of social events. One of those social events is the Women in Microwaves (WIM) Reception.
