We continue the tradition of holding the Women in Microwave Engineering (WiM) event, co-sponsored by the IEEE MTT-Society. This year´s event, focusing on communications technology for space exploration, will take you on a visit to one of the following two centres located near Madrid: NASA-MDSCC (Madrid Deep Space Communications Complex) or ESA-ESAC (European Space Astronomy Centre). Both women and men are welcome. Besides visiting the centre, presentations will be given by scientists working at MDSCC or ESAC, and attendees will have the opportunity to interact with high school students who are invited to participate in this event. Bus transportation to and from each centre will be provided.
