ANTEM 2018

18th International Symposium on Antenna Technology and Applied Electromagnetics
August 19 - 22, 2018, University of Waterloo, Waterloo, ON, Canada


Scope of the Conference
The 18th International Symposium on Antenna Technology and Applied Electromagnetics will be held from August 19 – 22, 2018 in Waterloo, ON, Canada. The language of the conference will be English.
The technical sessions will provide a comprehensive and well-balanced program and are intended to provide an international forum for the exchange of information on state-of-the-art research in antennas, propagation, and electromagnetic engineering. Authors are invited to submit contributions for review and presentation at the symposium on topics of interest to ANTEM. In addition to regularly scheduled oral presentations, there will be distinguished lecturers and special sessions. There will be a Student Paper Competition as well as a Technical Exhibition. Accepted submissions will be published on IEEE Xplore.

Venue Information
