Half-Day Workshop Celebrates the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) 2023 in San Diego


Join Us for a Half-Day Workshop Featuring Topics of Interest at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS) Coming to San Diego 11-16 June 2023!


Welcome to our pre-IMS2023 Workshop! This event is a prequel to the big IMS2023 conference that will be held in San Diego during 11-16 June 2023. At this half-day workshop we have presentations from top engineers in industry, giving us insights into recent advances in a broad spectrum of topics, and a flavor of what we will have at IMS2023. Come and hear about Model-Based Systems Engineering, Power Amplifier Linearization, Millimeter-Wave ICs for Massive MIMO, Automotive Antenna Range Testing, and more! We will also have plenty of opportunities for networking, and an introduction to the many student volunteer opportunities at IMS2023.

This is a FREE meeting open to IEEE members and guests, but you must register IN ADVANCE no later than Friday, September 23, to ensure adequate seating and catering. Box lunch included for all advance registrants!

See the external registration page for presentation abstracts and speaker bios.



Join us IN PERSON on 11-16 June 2023 for the International Microwave Symposium (IMS2023) at the San Diego Convention Center. IMS2023 is co-located with the RFIC Symposium, and the ARFTG Microwave Measurement Conference, and in 2023 we are also co-locating with the IEEE Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference at the Hilton Bayfront Hotel, IMS2023 conference headquarters. Join us for technical papers, scientific workshops, industry panels of experts, and more!

Registration options include an "Exhibits Only" pass at $30. View the some 400,000 sq ft exhibit hall to see the latest in microwave products and services. An "Exhibits Only" pass is FREE on Thursday, June 15.

CALLING ALL STUDENTS: There are many volunteer opportunities that include generous perks. If you are interested in volunteering for a day or the entire week, please contact Johana Yan (johana@ieee.org) to learn more.
