2017 Chairman’s Message


Dear RFIC community,

I’d like to welcome you to participate in the 2017 RFIC symposium which will take place 4-6 June 2017 at the Honolulu Hawaii Convention Center.

The RFIC symposium kicks off the 2017 IMS microwave conference week with our traditional Sunday workshops followed by two stimulating evening plenary talks on “Deployment Realities of 5G” and “RFIC/Silicon-based Phased Arrays and Transceivers for 5G “ from visionary world experts in our industry. Immediately following the plenary session we will be holding an RFIC ‘interactive’ Sunday reception that will highlight our industry show-case and interactive forum papers for an engaging social and technical evening event. Monday June 5th and Tuesday June 6th 2017 will be comprised of parallel tracks of technical presentations and thought provoking lunch-time panel sessions.

Throughout the conference week you will have the opportunity to meet and discuss ideas with colleagues and presenters and expand your network and technical knowledge of how RFIC technology plays a role in the wireless future.

Please take advantage of this opportunity and I look forward to seeing you at the 2017 RFIC conference in Honolulu, Hawaii.


Kevin Kobayashi

2017 RFIC General Chair
