On-site Registration

The Early Bird Registration period provides discounted rates for those who want to plan ahead. Immediately following is Advance Registration, which ends just prior to the start of Microwave Week; the rates are higher than Early Bird, but lower than Onsite Registration. Click here to review the registration rates.

Please note: Registration is required for all attendees including SESSION CHAIRS and PRESENTERS. Only paid attendees will be admitted to the workshops, technical sessions, and exhibition hall.

The following steps will guide you through the registration process:
