EuMC 2010 : European Microwave Conference
Call For Papers
40th European Microwave Conference 2010
Paris, September 28 - 30, 2010
The 40th European Microwave Conference (EuMC) that will be held in Paris, France, from September 28 - 30, is the core of European Microwave Week 2010, the largest event in Europe dedicated to microwave electronics.
The European Microwave Conference is the premier forum for presentation of the present status and future trends in the fi eld of microwave, millimetre- and submillimetre-wave systems and technologies. A broad range of high-frequency related topics, from materials and technologies to integrated circuits, systems and applications will be addressed in all their aspects: theory, simulation, design and measurement. Examples include the latest development for passive components, modelling and design of high frequency and high data-rate photonics, highly stable and noiseless microwave and millimetre-wave sources, new linearization and power generation techniques and the impact of new packaging technologies on development applications. Special emphasis will be placed on emerging technologies such as MEMS, meta-materials, reconfi gurable RF components and systems, communication receivers and transmitters. The scope also includes electromagnetic fi eld theory, numerical techniques, theoretical and experimental developments in wave propagation, remote sensing, antenna systems and advanced simulation techniques.
The EuMC is thus the perfect event to keep up to date with recent achievements in the RF, microwave and millimetre-wave domain. It provides many opportunities to network and interact with international experts in a wide variety of specialities, attracting delegates with academic and industrial backgrounds. With more than 300 selected papers in about 60 oral and poster sessions, the conference represents an exciting forum for the presentation and discussion of the most recent advances in the microwave arena.
In addition to scientifi c papers, contributions are encouraged on industrial applications, covering the fi elds of instrumentation, medical, telecommunication, radar, space, automotive and defence systems.

The EuMC is the major European microwave event to keep up to date with recent achievements in the RF, microwave and millimetre-wave domain. The EuMC provides many opportunities to network and interact with international experts in a wide variety of specialities, attracting delegates with academic and industrial backgrounds. With more than 300 selected papers in about 60 oral and poster sessions, the conference represents an exciting forum for the presentation and discussion of the most recent advances in the microwave area. Focused sessions and Workshops will complement the programme. Proposals for focused sessions should be submitted before November 30, 2009 to the Workshop Chairman.
EuMC Microwave Prize
The Technical Programme Committee of the EuMC and the EuMW Steering Committee will award the EuMC Microwave Prize of £ 5,000 to the author(s) of the best contributed paper to the 40th European Microwave Conference. The winning paper will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Microwave & Wireless Technologies.
EuMC Young Engineers Prize
The Technical Programme Committee of the EuMC and the EuMW Steering Committee will award two EuMC Young Engineers Prizes of £ 2,000 each to young engineers or researchers who have presented an outstanding paper at the European Microwave Conference. To be eligible, candidates must be (1) aged 30 or younger at the date of the award, (2) the fi rst author of the paper, (3) the presenter either in an oral or poster session. The number of co-authors should not exceed three. The successful applicant may use part of the prize to fund attendance at the following year’s European Microwave Conference. Winning papers will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Microwave & Wireless Technologies.
Reduced Fees and Special Grants
Reduced fees are implemented for students as well as senior persons aged 65 years or more. The European Microwave Association will also provide up to 10 student grants consisting of £ 500. Applications should be sent to the EuMC Chair by May 16, 2010. The European Microwave Association will also provide a number of grants for delegates coming from Newly Independant States, Russia and from low-income countries. The value of the grant is £ 500 and a reduced registration fee for the EuMC. Applications should be sent to the EuMC Chair by May 16, 2010.
