The IMS is sponsored by the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society. It is part of "Microwave Week" in which the IEEE RFIC Conference and ARFTG Conference are co-located at the Tampa Convention Center or other nearby venues.
The IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) is a transnational society with more than 11,000 members and 150 chapters worldwide. Our Society promotes the advancement of microwave theory and its applications, including RF, microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz technologies.
For more than 60 years the MTT-S has worked to advance the professional standing of its members and enhance the quality of life for all people through the development and application of microwave technology. As we enter into an exciting future, our mission is to continue to understand and influence microwave technology, and to provide a forum for all microwave engineers. The MTT-S will continue to be the global focus for promotion of the RF and microwave engineering profession, by advancing and distributing knowledge and supporting professional development. This is an all- volunteer society, driven to excellence by its leadership, with the active participation of all its world-wide members. The activities sponsored by the MTT-S include a broad spectrum of conferences, workshops, tutorials, technical committees, chapter meetings, publications and professional education programs. Our principal publications and conferences are world class, peer reviewed and recognized as top of class. Our professional venues provide a great opportunity for networking with experienced innovators, experts, and practitioners. Our volunteer programs provide for development of critical, non-technical skills that enable you to be more effective professionally.
The annual International Microwave Symposium (IMS) and the Radio Wireless Week (RWW) are two of our flagship microwave conferences. In 2013, MTT-S will launch the Internatonal Wireless Symposium (IWS) in Beijing, China.
The MTT-S publishes peer-reviewed technical papers in the Transactions of Microwave Theory and Techniques, the Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology, the Microwave and Wireless Component Letters, and the Microwave Magazine. More information on how to access our papers and to write for our publications can be found at mtt.org/publications.html. Of particular interest to our IEEE Region 10 communities, we are providing a group of selected Microwave Magazine articles translated into Simplfied and Traditional Chinese. They can be downloaded, free of charge, at mtt.org.
