As General Chair, I invite you to participate in the 2016 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium, to be held in San Francisco, California, USA, during May 22-24, 2016. RFIC is the premier IC conference focused exclusively on the latest developments in RF, Microwave, and Millimeter Wave Integrated Circuit technology and innovation.
RFIC, the International Microwave Symposium (IMS), ARFTG, and the IMS Industry Exhibition make up the “Microwave Week”, the largest worldwide RF/microwave meeting of the year. Come to Microwave week to learn from the world’s experts through a wide variety of technical sessions, interactive forums, panel sessions, workshops, short courses, industry showcase, industrial exhibits, application seminars, and historical exhibits.
RFIC 2016 General Chair
Technical Format: The conference starts on Sunday, May 22, 2016 with workshops and short courses, followed by two Plenary talks and Reception embedded with joint Industry Showcase and Interactive Forum. Monday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 24, 2016 will be comprised of presentations of contributed papers and special lunch-time panel sessions. RFIC also seeks 2-page short-format original industrial-only submissions on all the areas listed in the Call for Papers. The RFIC Symposium presents two awards annually, Best Student Paper and Industry Best Paper.
Beyond RFIC: San Francisco is trendy, artistic, progressive and tech-savvy. It is close to the Silicon Valley, and offers many attractions for visitors including the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s wharf, beaches, museums, excellent restaurants and close-by wineries.
TMTT Special Issue
The IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques (IEEE T-MTT) will publish a Mini-Special Issue devoted to 2015 IEEE RFIC Symposium (RFIC 2015). Authors of all papers presented at IEEE RFIC 2015 are invited to submit an expanded version of their papers to the Mini-Special Issue. The expanded version requires that the new technical content includes a more in-depth treatment, new results beyond the RFIC 2015 paper, or both. The authors should also take advantage of the discussions generated at the RFIC 2015, which may lead to possibly different results or interpretations. Every paper will be reviewed by T-MTT in the same manner as all other regular submissions to this publication.
