Microwave events are given in reverse
chronological order below. We try to update this page once or twice a year,
so our apologies if the entries are slightly out of date...
ATTENTION EVENT ORGANIZERS!
If you are organizing an event that is relevant to microwave
engineers, send us a note and we'll add it to this calendar.
IEEE Antennas and Propagation
Symposium, July 2013, Orlando, Florida, USA
The 2013 IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation is co-located with the USNC/URSI National Radio Science Meeting.
IEEE MTT-S International Microwave
Symposium, June 2013, Seattle, WA, USA
IMS is the biggest annual meeting
by far of microwave types, it runs concurrently with IEEE's RFIC
Symposium. This year these conferences are in Seattle, Washington.

CS MANTECH, May 2013, New Orleans, LA, USA
Here's their mission statement
(we copied from their website!)
GaAs MANTecH is a not-for-profit
organization whose focus is to provide a forum for members of
the compound semiconductor community to exchange and discuss new
ideas to better serve the public in general.
CS MANTECH, meaning compound
semi, was once called GaAs MANTECH. This organization posts their material on line for free
downloading, unlike the IEEE, so you can learn what your competitors
are bragging about.
Sarnoff Symposium, April or May 2013, Princeton, New Jersey, USA
The IEEE Sarnoff Symposium has
been around since 1978, presenting information on the latest developments
in communication systems, microwave technology and multimedia applications.
Equally important, it's held at the historic Nassau Inn in Princeton,
NJ - a beautiful venue, particularly in the spring. The link below will go to their 2012 conference until they update the pages for 2013.
Symposium - Princeton, New Jersey
IEEE RadarCon, April 2013, Ottowa, Ontario, CANADA
This international conference
is held in Canada this year.
RFID World ASIA, April 2013, Singapore
RFID World conference in Asia.
IEEE RFID, April
2013, Orlando, Florida, USA
The IEEE International Conference
on RFID is dedicated to addressing the technical and policy challenges
in the areas of radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies,
their supporting large-scale distributed information systems, and
International Conference on RFID
GomacTech, March 2013, Las Vegas, NV, USA
Possibly the coolest symposium
for defense types, the Government Microcircuit Applications and
Critical Technologies Conference audience is restricted to U.S.
citizens only. For 2013 it will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Bally's casino.
IMAPS packaging conference,
March 2013, Scottsdale, Arizona, USA
This is the fifth year of the
IMSPS device packaging conference. It's held at a resort in Arizona,
bring your golf shoes and "go green" and rent some sticks.
If you're on government per diem, you'll be purchasing your own
meals! The "M" in IMAPS should stand for "marketing",
this is not an IEEE-type event.
Device Packaging Conference - Phoenix, Arizona
IEEE International Solid
State Circuits Conference, February 2013, San Francisco, CA, USA
From their web site:
Welcome to the 2013 IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC). This year, we will celebrate the 60th anniversary of ISSCC. ISSCC is the flagship conference of the Solid-State Circuits Society, and is the premier forum for the presentation of advances in solid-state circuits and systems-on-a-chip. The Conference offers a unique opportunity to network with leading experts in the field. For 2013, the Conference theme is “60 Years of (Em)Powering the Future”.
2013 IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference - (ISSCC)
IEEE Wireless Week, January 2013, Austin, TX, USA
The annual IEEE Radio Wireless Week consists of 5 co-located topical conferences:
Asia Pacific Microwave Conference,
December 2012, Kaohsiung, Taiwan
You'd be surprised at the stuff
you can learn at this conference, even if you only speak English.
IEEE International Electron
Device Meeting, December 2012, San Francisco, CA, USA
From their site:
With a history stretching back nearly 60 years, the IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM) is the world’s pre-eminent forum for reporting technological breakthroughs in the areas of semiconductor and electronic device technology, design, manufacturing, physics, and modeling.
ARMMS Microwave conference, November 2012, Wyboston, England
The Automated RF and Microwave Measurement Society
has a conference twice a year in the U.K., once in April and once
in November. Approximately 15 papers are presented over a two-day
period. ARMMS provides past papers on their web site for downloading.
From their web site:
The original aims of the
society have expanded over the years as instrumentation has become
more automated and we now cover diverse topics in Radio and Radar
design and test, metrology, medical, materials testing etc.
ARMMS Microwave conference
Microwave Update, October 2012, Santa Clara, California, USA
Microwave Update (MUD) is the nation's
most popular, amateur radio-focused microwave and millimeter wave
experimentation technical conference. Each year, the MUD attracts attendees
from all over the world to discuss the latest technical developments
and operating achievements in amateur experimentation on the 1,000
MHz and up frequencies.
European Microwave Week, October 2012, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
As always, the best boondoggle
on this page would be to go to EuMW. This is actually four conferences
on different microwave topics, including wireless, radar, and integrated
IEEE CSIC Symposium, October 2012, La Jolla, California, USA
Compound Semiconductor IC symposium used to be called the GaAs IC
Symposium, but we all know that GaAs is not the only compound semi
out there. So renaming it the "sea-sick" symposium is
a big improvement, right? This conference is truly for semiconductor
nerds only (we mean that in a good way, Nick!) This conference seems
to be dwindling in attendance, once it starts to lose money we expect
the IEEE to kill it off.
Association of Old Crows Convention,
September 2012, Phoenix, Arizona, USA
Old Crows are a group of people that are interested in electronic warfare.
They hold many conferences on different topics throughout the year,
but the main convention is in October.
IMAPS International Conference on Microelectronics, September 2012, San Diego, CA, USA
The IMAPS conference is a good
bet if you're looking for ideas for next-generation packaging of
