IEEE WAMICON Announces 2017 Technical Program and Speakers

The upcoming IEEE Wireless and Microwave Technology Conference, WAMICON 2017, will focus on power amplifiers, semiconductors and software for 5G wireless communications and the Internet of Things (IoT). The conference will take place in Florida, United States from 24 to 25 April, 2017.

The two-day program has two parallel technical tracks, covering topics such as active circuits, measurement techniques, passive devices, power amplifiers, antennas, wireless communications, reconfigurable devices, and an interactive forum.

Some highlights about keynote speakers, panelists, and tutorial include:

  • Keynote: The Impact of Silicon as an Emerging Technology for 5G Circuits and System Solutions by Paul Colestock (Founding director and Head of the Exploratory Design Group at GLOBALFOUNDRIES)
  • Keynote: PA Design for Future Wireless Systems by Zoya Popovic, Professor Hudson Moore Jr. (Endowed Chair of the Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder)
  • Panel: The Push and Pull of Technology Solutions for 5G - 5G represents a strong, yet still not completely defined, market pull for new and cost effective technology solutions. This pull is driving the push for advances in semiconductors, circuit design, test and simulation, heterogeneous integration and packaging. This panel will allow speakers to present their perspectives on the push and pull of the solutions required to realize the promise of 5G for practical applications. Panelists include Vincent Pelliccia (VP of Business Development, Anokiwave), Paul Colestock (Founding Director, Head of Exploratory Design Group, GLOBALFOUNDRIES), Moray Rumney (Lead Technologist, Keysight Technologies), Takao Inoue (Wireless Solutions Architect, AWR Group, National Instruments) and Bror Peterson (Principle Systems Engineer, Infrastructure and Defense Products, Qorvo)
  • Tutorial: Flexible Radio Access Beyond 5G: A Future Projection by Huseyin Arslan, Ph.D., IEEE Fellow Professor, University of South Florida
  • Dinner Speech: Sustainability and the 4th Industrial Revolution by Dr. Linda Katehi
