6–9 November 2018 2018 Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference (APMC 2018)

Kyoto, Japan

The Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference (APMC) is the largest microwave event of its kind in the Asia-Pacific region. APMC provides a broad forum for participants from both academia and industries to exchange information, share research results, and discuss collaborations in the fields of not only microwave but also millimeter wave and even to the far infrared and optical waves.

The series of APMC began at New Delhi, India in 1986 and APMC 2018 is going to be the commemorable 30th conference. APMC 2018 will be held at Kyoto International Conference Center (ICC Kyoto), Kyoto, Japan, on November 6-9, 2018. Commemorating its 30th conference, the APMC 2018 Steering Committee plans to hold special events and is privileged to welcome all the colleagues around the world in this special occasion.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers on their latest works. Papers presented at the conference will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore.
