Event Overview

The International Wireless Symposium (IWS) is a new microwave Conference sponsored by the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society starting from 2013. It will be an international event held annually in China, with the first one to be held in Beijing, China. The focus is "everything that is wireless", including phones, Bluetooth, Zigbee, data, and a myriad of hardware, as well as regulatory and provider issues within the wireless community. Patterned after the very famous MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS), the IWS will comprise a technical conference and a commercial exhibition. Because the market place for wireless technology, devices and service is immense, the IWS scale is anticipated to be similar to the IMS, i.e. 500 papers presented in multiple parallel tracks, with several hundred industrial and other exhibitors. IWS will rotate between several locations in China, but will be an international event with participants from all over the world. The papers presented at IWS will be archived in IEEE Xplore. The exhibition will include manufacturers and service providers from worldwide, with marketing happening in both directions: both into, and out from China. The IWS is intended to attract attendees and exhibitors from all parts of the wireless community, and will become a major global wireless event.
