Welcome to the IMS 2006 Homepage!

IMS2006 is history - feedback tells us it has been a tremendously successful event. Thank you to all that participated.

There were 3,000 technical attendees and over 12,000 overall attendees. We also must thank the over 1,000 presenters for sharing their research and application experience. Additionally our thanks to the 546 exhibitors & 12 industry sponsors for their informative booths and support of IMS2006.

We hope that everyone gathered useful information, successfully networked with the leaders of our profession and had some fun. And to liven up those trip reports, go to IMS2006 Photos.

Finally - I wanted to thank the 60 Steering Committee members for their long hours of effort and their successful execution of the week long activities. IMS2006 Steering Committee

Hope to see you next year in Hawai'i

It has been an honor to participate in the IMS2006.

On behalf of the IMS2006 Steering Committee, the Santa Clara Valley MTT-S Chapter and the IEEE MicrowaveTheory And Techniques Society, I invite you to join us in San Francisco for the world's largest and most exciting gathering of RF/microwave professionals. Between June 11 and June 16 there will be over one thousand technical presentations during the three premier symposiums in their fields - the International Microwave Symposium (IMS), Radio Frequency IC (RFIC) Symposium and Automatic RF Techniques Group (ARFTG) Conference. In addition to the technical sessions, interactive workshops & panels, and tutorials, there will be many opportunities to network with the leading professionals in these fields. Add to this the largest vendor (500+) exhibition in the industry and you'll have a busy but a "must-not-miss" week.

While you're here for IMS 2006, Northern California is a wonderful place to visit and the weather in June is quite pleasant. See the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf, China Town, Golden Gate Park, Coit Tower, Muir Woods, the Wine Country, the Pacific coast, Alcatraz and Treasure Islands and take a ride on the SF Cable Cars. These are just some of many exciting activities you can do on your own or as a part of our guest program.

Come join us as we create the "Bridge to the Future"

IMS2006 General Chair
