"Microwaves for growth" workshop:Components, antennas and systems for future mobile wireless communications
Thursday February 22nd, 2007 at 10.00-15.30
Lindholmen Science Park
Chalmers University of Technology, Lindholmen, Göteborg
House JUPITER/Chalmers Industrihögskola, room OMEGA
Arranged by Microwave Road, GigaHertz Centre and CHASE
Microwave Road in collaboration with Chalmers VINN Excellence Centres GHz Centre and CHASE invites you to a new workshop on future growth areas related to microwave technology. Thistime, we address mobile wireless communication. Several new type of communication technologies are expected on the wireless market the next decade. While market success is difficult to predict, large advancements are currently made by involved actors in all aspects of wireless communication: components, antennas, systems, and standards. In this seminar, we present some essential progress in this multidisciplinary field. Prominent speakers from industry and academia will give their views of critical components, antennas and systems needed for future mobile wirelesscommunication.
