Last year, at the 2017 IEEE AP-S Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting in San Diego, California, we launched a new demonstrations program in the exhibit hall. This activity was initiated by the IIC - Industrial Initiative Committee of the IEEE-APS. The goal was to provide hands-on education in an interactive format on antenna propagation and measurement related principals. The program featured both hardware and software demonstrations. Since the demonstrations were well received, we are pleased to offer them once again during the 2018 IEEE AP-S Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts.
The purpose of this unique program is to demonstrate important antenna concepts with a focus on innovative ideas and methods that are of interest to practicing antenna engineers. Topics addressed may include Antenna theory, design, and measurements; Microstrip antennas and printed devices; Millimeter wave and Terahertz antennas; MIMO antennas and systems; Nanoscale electromagnetics; Radio communication systems, etc. In short, any of the technical topics shown on the 2018 IEEE AP-S Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting Call for Papers may be addressed in the demonstration program.
Presentations are scheduled for 30-minute increments. This allows for Q&A during the demonstration and a repeat as necessary to accommodate the flexible schedule of symposium attendees. Following are a few of the demonstrations presented at the 2017 IEEE AP-S Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting in San Diego, as an example of topics you can propose:
To participate in the demonstrations program at the 2018 IEEE AP-S Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and USNC-URSI Radio Science Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, please submit a proposal for your demonstration using the following guidelines.
All presenters are required to have a full symposium registration fee paid in advance in order to participate in the demonstrations program – NO EXCEPTIONS! Presenters in the demonstrations program may be from industry, academia, and/or government. Presenters are responsible for ensuring their content may be shared with the public.
