We continue the tradition of holding the Women in Microwave Engineering event, sponsored by IEEE MTT-S during the European Microwave Week. This year's event will take you on a journey through the history and the future of communication technology. Of course, both women and men are welcome. Four female leaders in the field will discuss on future trends in communications. At the end of the panel session, a visit to the ‘Rundfunkmuseum Fürth’ demonstrates the historical role of the Nuremberg metropolitan area in the RF industry.
