Chair's Welcome

Dear RFIC Community,

I’d like to welcome you to participate in the 2019 IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits (RFIC) Symposium, which will take place 2-4 June 2019 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

The RFIC Symposium kicks off the 2019 IMS microwave conference week with our traditional Sunday workshops followed by two stimulating evening plenary talks. The 2019 Symposium will introduce a new educational activity during the Sunday program, the Technical Lecture. Immediately after the plenary session we will be holding the RFIC interactive Sunday reception that will highlight our industry show-case and student papers finalists for an engaging social and technical evening event. Monday June 3rd and Tuesday June 4th 2019 will be comprised of parallel tracks of technical presentations and thought-provoking lunch-time panel sessions, with special focus around 5G technologies.

Throughout the conference week, you will have the opportunity to meet and discuss ideas with colleagues and speakers. You will expand your network and knowledge of how the latest RFIC technologies will revolutionize wireless communications in the future and impact the life of all of us.

So, whether you are a student seeking for knowledge and attending your first conference, or an active researcher in the academia or industry, or have any interest in the latest about RFIC technologies and circuits, please take advantage of this opportunity!
I look forward to see you at the 2019 RFIC Symposium in Boston, Massachusetts. As the General Chair for 2019 I pledge to deliver the best possible experience to all the attendees.


Sincerely,

Stefano Pellerano
2019 RFIC General Chair
