NEW DEADLINE OF IMWS-AMP 2017 – PAVIA

 

NEW SUBMISSION DEADLINE 15 May 2017!!!

Dear Colleague,

You are cordially invited to submit your contribution to the 2017 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Workshop Series on Advanced Materials and Processes (IMWS-AMP 2017), which will be held in Pavia, Italy, on 20-22 September 2017 (http://imws-ieee.org/).

IMWS-AMP 2017 conference represents a unique and unprecedented opportunity to bring together researchers and practitioners of different background (materials scientists, chemical experts, physicists, microwave engineers and process technologists), to share the most recent advances in new materials and manufacturing processes, which represent the key for the development of future RF, microwave, mm-wave and THz devices, circuits and systems.

IMWS-AMP 2017 is organized by the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) with the technical co-sponsorship of the European Microwave Association (EuMA). The conference will feature an exciting technical program, an industry exhibit, and invited talks by worldwide recognized experts in materials and manufacturing processes.

Several special sessions will be organized. A partial list is available in the conference website http://imws-ieee.org/

I am pleased to announce that the paper submission deadline has been extended to 15 May 2017, to accommodate several requests received from prospective authors and session organizers.

The IEEE AP/ED/MTT North Italy Chapter is pleased to announce that the paper

Gabriele Minatti, Marco Faenzi, Enrica Martini, Francesco Caminita, Paolo De Vita, David González-Ovejero, Marco Sabbadini and Stefano Maci, “Modulated Metasurface Antennas for Space: Synthesis, Analysis and Realizations,” IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, vol. 63, no. 4, pp. 1288-1300, Apr. 2015

has been awarded the 2016 IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society Sergei A. Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award

The Sergei A. Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award is presented to the authors of the best paper published in the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON ANTENNAS AND PROPAGATION during the previous year. The award was previously known as the ‘Best Paper’ and was renamed in 1985.

The award will be present at the IEEE APS/URSI Symposium Awards Ceremony on Wednesday June 29, 2016 at 5:30 pm in Grand Atlantic Ballroom Salon 2, The El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, Puerto Rico.


Prof. MACI recipient of 2016 IEEE AP-S Chen-To Tai Distinguished Educator Award

PastedGraphic-1The IEEE AP/ED/MTT North Italy Chapter is pleased to announce that Prof. Stefano MACI (University of Siena) is the recipient of the 2016 IEEE Antenna and Propagation Society Chen-To Tai Distinguished Educator Award

“For extraordinary impact in high-level education in the Antennas and Propagation community through the European School of Antennas ”

The Chen-To Tai Distinguished Educator Award was established in 2000 by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society, and it is given annually (if a qualified candidate is nominated) to recognize outstanding career achievements by a distinguished educator in the field of antennas and propagation. The criteria considered by the AP-S Awards Committee include excellence in teaching, involvement with and direction of students to prepare them for effective careers in Electromagnetics, curriculum development with inclusion of current research and knowledge that reflects the state of the art in courses, and authorship of research and course material.

The Award will be presented at the IEEE APS/URSI Symposium Awards Ceremony on Wednesday June 29, 2016 at 5:30 pm in Grand Atlantic Ballroom Salon 2, The El Conquistador Resort in Fajardo, Puerto Rico.
