The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Wireless and Microwave Technology Conference (WAMICON), announced the 21st annual event’s keynote and plenary speakers. The conference speakers represent a key tenet of WAMICON to join academia, government, and industry in discussions in the advances of wireless and microwave technologies.
The two-day program includes talks covering topics such as space, millimeter-wave circuits, terahertz systems, 5G front ends, GaN RF MMIC design, and satellite technologies. See below for a list of highlights from keynote and plenary speakers.
The central theme of WAMICON 2021 is "Wireless Devices and Systems Making Mad Connections from Space to the 5G IoE."
- Microwaves in Space - Are We Alone? NASA Technologies to Find Life Beyond Earth and Answers to Other Science Questions, Dr. Goutam Chattopadhyay (NASA JPL, Senior Research Scientist).
- The Third Wireless Revolution, Professor Harish Krishnaswamy (Columbia University, Associate Professor and the Director of the Columbia High-Speed and Millimeter-Wave IC Laboratory (CoSMIC)).
