Welcome to IMS2022

Welcome to IMS2022 in Denver, Colorado.  We are very excited about IMS coming to Denver for many reasons.  We are planning a live show, a robust technical program, great social opportunities and Denver is a wonderful place.  Several new innovations have been put into place that will make it easier and more beneficial for industry presenters to participate and to tie their work to their exhibits.  This will be a great chance to re-establish connections and make new ones. Come explore the peaks of microwave engineering!

We have introduced several different programs aimed at presenters coming from industry.  There will be an Industrial Showcase which will be a reception where papers with industrial authors can present a poster that will showcase their work and they can answer any questions about their work or company. Industry supported papers will have the opportunity to add a slide to their presentation that will acknowledge the industry support and associated booth number (if there is one), a similar mechanism is being set up for Interactive Forum presentations.  There will be an industry paper contest.  The winner gets a full-page ad in the IEEE Microwave Magazine or Microwave Journal. 

New in 2022 will be the Systems Forum.  This will be a three-day forum that will bring together the latest in telecommunications, radar and space applications.  There will be contributions from MTT-S Sister Societies, RFIC and ARFTG. We will also be continuing the program where the 50 top-ranked papers, as determined by the Technical Paper Review Committee, will be invited to submit the paper to the IEEE Microwave and Wireless Components Letters (MWCL) for publication.

Downtown Denver is a vibrant community.  The main hotels are all within six blocks of the Colorado Convention Center.  There is a great mix of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues within the downtown area. Denver is known for having great weather – over 300 days of sunshine a year! The Rocky Mountains are a short drive away.

We are excited about being live in Denver.  This will be a great opportunity for the microwave community to come together and for you to show your technology to existing and new customers.  We look forward to seeing you in Denver, 19-24 June 2022!
