The 17th European Microwave Integrated Circuits Conference (EuMIC) will be held in Milan, Italy, as part of the European Microwave Week 2022. Initiated by the GAAS® Association in 1990 and renamed in 2006, the conference is being held from the 26th to the 27th of September 2022 in Milan, Italy, in the Convention centre representing an International hubs for technical and financial activities in a truly dynamic city that never goes to sleep! The EuMIC conference is jointly organized by the GAAS® Association and EuMA, and is the premier European technical conference for RF and microwave electronics, and opto-electronics. It has established itself as a key contributor to the success of the overall European Microwave Week and remains the largest scientific event in Europe related to microwave integrated circuits.

The aim of the conference is to showcase recent notable achievements and trends within our industry and to encourage the exchange of scientific and technical information covering a broad range of high-frequency related topics, from materials and technologies to integrated circuits and applications; encompassing all relevant aspects such as theory, simulation, design, and measurement. Research and innovation in this field help to create the crucial enabling infrastructure for new and emerging information and communication applications.

How will the next mega trends in 5G+ connectivity, connected cars, intelligent sensors, pan-global satellite coverage, Smart City & Smart Factory developments affect what high frequency devices we should be developing next? Where will the smart investment money go and what are the most promising areas to focus your IC start-up company?

Whilst traditionally, the EuMIC conference has focussed mostly on III-V semiconductor technologies, we are particularly keen to encourage more Si based contributions as we recognise the rapidly progressing applicability of CMOS/SOI solutions for microwave/millimetre-wave applications.

Technological innovations continue to drive challenges for modelling and simulation as well as for the characterisation techniques applied at both device and circuit levels. While GaAs and silicon-based IC technologies are extensively used in today’s systems, emerging technologies such as wide-bandgap (SiC, GaN, etc.), CNT, and graphene-based devices are expected to become commercially available within the coming years, with a huge impact on system performance expected. Moreover, new materials and devices push integrated circuit capability to millimetre-wave and even to THz bands, while high-speed digital and optoelectronic integrated circuits represent other key areas of interest. In the modelling area, topics related to devices and systems, small- and large-signal characterisation, test setups, and modelling approaches up to the THz band are of interest. In the technology area, papers on nanotechnologies for microwaves, as well as wide-bandgap devices and technologies for microwave photonics are specifically solicited. Topics related to semiconductor devices, IC reliability and 3D-interconnects in ICs are also invited to the conference. Finally, contributions are encouraged in the areas of circuit design and applications, RF and microwave ICs, millimetre- and submillimetre-wave ICs, photonic ICs, mixed-signal and high-speed digital ICs, tunable and reconfigurable ICs as well as integrated detectors, receivers, transmitters, and transceivers.

If you are keen to hear of the latest advances in RF/microwave/ mmWave device and IC technology, and how they will drive the next Telecomms, Industrial, Automotive and Smart City revolutions, then the EuMIC conference is the place to be in September 2022! Our team is putting a programme together which will ensure that you won’t be disappointed.

Conference Highlights

About 100 papers and poster papers will be presented with contributions from Europe, Asia, Middle East, USA, and a growing number of emerging countries. High-quality papers and posters will be accepted after a rigorous review process and made available in the Conference Proceedings. Lively industrial panel sessions will also be organised. Keynote speakers from industry and academia will present invited talks on hot topics. Tailored short-courses and workshops will complement the programme.

EuMIC Microwave Prize

The EuMIC Technical Programme Committee and the EuMW Steering Committee will award the EuMIC 2022 Prize of €3,000 to the author(s) of the best contributed paper at the 17th European Microwave Integrated Circuits Conference. An extended version of the winning paper will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies.

EuMIC Young Engineers Prizes

The EuMIC Technical Programme Committee and the EuMW Steering Committee will award a EuMIC Young Engineer Prize of €2,000 to young engineers or researchers who have presented an outstanding paper at the European Microwave Integrated Circuits Conference. To be eligible, candidates must be (1) under 30 years of age at date of award, (2) the first author of the paper, and (3) be the contribution presenter in an oral or a poster session. The first author must have made a major contribution to the work reported, which must be described in an electronic statement signed by all co-authors of the paper (effectively co-authors state that their contribution was merely advisory). Further rules are similar to EuRAD and EuMC.

Tom Brazil Fellowship Award

As part of the fellowship award, for the next 3 years, starting in 2021, the GAAS® Association will promote an essay competition in memory of Prof. Tom Brazil who was a great contributor to the Microwave Community and a well-known friend and colleague for many of us. To be eligible to participate the student has to be enrolled in a full time Ph.D. or graduate degree programme in microwave electronics.

The student should write a 4000-word essay or max of 12 pages including diagrams and tables, reporting His/Her view on “Microwaves for global challenges”, thus describing what kind of future microwave activities would be important and why. The essays will be shortlisted and the top 3 will be asked to do a final pitch during EuMW Week.

Applications should be sent to the email address brazilaward@eumw2022.org by 1st September 2022. For further details, see the conference website and the GAAS® Association website: www.gaas-symposium.eu.

Reduced Fees and Special Grants

Reduced registration fees are offered for students as well as senior persons aged 65 years or more. The European Microwave Association will also provide up to six student grants of €750 and free EuMIC registration. Applicants for a student grant must be aged 30 or younger at the time of the European Microwave Week, be a full-time student, i.e., an undergraduate or a PhD student, and they will be asked to provide a supervisor’s written confirmation of their current student status. The European Microwave Association will also provide a number of grants for delegates coming from the Newly Independent States, from Russia, and from low-income countries. The value of the grant is €750 in addition to a free EuMIC registration. Applications should be sent to the EuMW 2022 Grants Chair by emailing grants@eumw2022.org by 20 June 2022.
