The 2021 IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS2021) and Microwave Week, the world’s largest event for RF and microwave technology will be presented in a hybrid format, comprised of in-person and virtual participation options.

The in-person event will be held June 6-11, 2021 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA. A virtual event will follow June 20-25, 2021. Both events will be centered around the theme of “Connecting for a Smarter, Safer World.’”

“The Steering Committee and Event Management team is doing everything possible to make IMS2021 and Microwave Week accessible to the RF and microwave community. We are committed to presenting a symposium and exhibition that addresses the health and safety considerations so essential in our current environment,” said John Papapolymerou, IMS2021 General Co-Chair. “Our IMS2021 venue in Atlanta, the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC), was the first facility in the US to achieve the Global BioRisk Advisory Council’s GBAC StarTM Accreditation, which recognizes facilities that implement the industry's highest standards of cleaning for Covid-19. We are and will continue to work closely with the GWCC, our partners, and event management team to adhere to currently advised health and safety precautions.”

“While our goal remains to have an in-person event, we recognize that attendance in Atlanta may not be possible for everyone. We want to make sure IMS2021 and Microwave Week are available to anyone who would like to participate, so we will have a virtual event two weeks after the in-person one in Atlanta,” said Steven Kenney, IMS2021 General Co-Chair. “This event will feature all the content from the in-person event as well as some new content. As a special thank you to our in-person attendees who pick up their badges in Atlanta, we will provide a complimentary virtual events pass at the same level that they registered for in Atlanta.”

The IMS2021 Virtual Event will continue to be available in an on-demand format through July 2, 2021.
