About the European Microwave Doctoral School
Following the success of the previous editions, this year‘s European Microwave Week features the 4th European Microwave Doctoral School. The aim of the Doctoral School is to offer to PhD students, beyond the normal conference programme, an overview of various emerging technologies. This year thematic is devoted to reconfigurable radio. The School gathers several speakers that develop their research in different topics linked to this field. The talks of the Doctoral School are longer (50 min) than typical conference presentations. Additionally, the School includes a Hands-on Design Experience on Wednesday: in collaboration with master students registered at the Student School, PhD students will build a modern digital transceiver. Attention has to be paid on the free Tuesday morning enabling preferential access to the Career Platform.

The registration fee for this event is €80. For the registration, PhD students will need a valid student ID of an accredited university. Students are prompted to bring their own laptops. For registration, please go to the registration site,  select ‘Register as a Conference Delegate’ and select EuMW Doctoral School. Registration is open until 10th September 2019. Space is limited, so secure your ticket well in advance.
