Beyond the Conference Pass: What Else Can I Do at IMS2022?

Beyond the Conference Pass: What Else Can I Do at IMS2022?

Attendees of IMS2022 can select from a number of “add on” items during their registration process; below are few for you to consider. (All registrations include access to the IMS Plenary Session and Welcome Reception on Monday 20 June as well as the exhibition floor on Tuesday 21 through Thursday 23 June.)

The Connected Future Summit takes place on Tuesday 21 June. It is a day-long program with its own reception, and it features talks from experts in the technologies used for future wireless networks. Check into this summit if you want to learn more about 5G/6G, cellular standardization, V2X technology, and next-generation connectivity.

This year’s four technical lectures occur throughout the week and include invited talks on fundamentals, such as the effects of noise on RFICs; hot topics, such as health impacts of 5G;  and current design concerns, such as the design of RF control circuits, and modulation schemes for automotive and industrial radar.

IMS2022 has scheduled 31 workshops, some half day and some full day, occurring on Sunday and Monday. You can add on a single half-day workshop, a full-day of workshops, or a pass for both full days of workshops to your conference pass. Full-day workshops include a morning refreshment break, lunch, and an afternoon refreshment break. Morning workshops include a morning refreshment break and lunch. Afternoon workshops include lunch and an afternoon refreshment break. View the complete list of workshops here.

If what you need is a full-day, intensive course in fundamentals, then the RF Boot Camp on Monday 20 June is for you. This course will cover the necessary engineering fundamentals required for today’s RF and microwave systems, including simulation and network design, network and spectrum analysis, and microwave antenna and radar basics. Attendees completing the course earn two IEEE CEUs. The fee for the RF Bootcamp includes a morning refreshment break, lunch, and an afternoon refreshment break.

Curious about quantum engineering? The Quantum Boot Camp on Sunday 19 June aims to provide an introduction to the basics of quantum engineering for engineers who want to understand how they can make an impact in this emerging field. The intended audience includes new engineers, engineers who may be changing their career path, marketing and sales professionals seeking a better understanding of quantum technology, as well as current university students looking to learn more about the practical aspects of quantum technology. Speakers will focus on the control and measurement of quantum systems, and the day will conclude with a hands-on introduction to the design of superconducting qubits using modern microwave CAD tools. 

If you want a two-hour presentation on an in-depth technical topic, then check out the industry workshops happening Tuesday, 21 June through Thursday 23 June. They provide practical training, often on application specific topics in design, measurement, and test. 

To fill out your week, you can choose to attend the MTT-S Awards Banquet (on Wednesday 22 June; additional fee), the HAM Radio Social, Women in Microwaves Event, or the Young Professionals Networking event.
