An Invitation to Experience IMS2009



Boston is proud to host the International Microwave Symposium in 2009. We have always been one of the strongest sites for microwave week, and we plan to continue that tradition. We also plan to continue the Boston tradition of innovation. We aren’t resting on our laurels – we are working hard to make IMS2009 the best possible experience for all participants – authors, technical attendees, trade show attendees, exhibitors, guests and even people that aren’t able to attend. You’ll find information on some exciting innovations in this website, and we’ll post updates frequently. Make sure you visit our website often to learn what is new!


As Chairman of the 2009 International Microwave Symposium, I invite you all to participate. I hope you can submit a paper or a workshop or panel idea, or can exhibit with us. The IMS has the largest technical program serving the RF/microwave community, the biggest exhibition in the business, and is the most prestigious event in the field. Come to IMS 2009 to learn, to do business, to make new acquaintances and to network with old friends. See you in Boston in June 2009!


- Fred Schindler, RF Micro Devices Boston Design Center / Chairman, IMS 2009
