IEEE Radio & Wireless Week

16 - 19 January 2022
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Greetings From General Chair of Radio & Wireless Week 2022

I would like to welcome you to the city of Las Vegas, NV. This 17th annual IEEE Radio & Wireless (RWW) is being held at the Caesars Palace Hotel on the famous Las Vegas Boulevard. The venue is located in an internationally renowned major resort city, known for its shopping, fine dining, top entertainment, and night life.

This year, RWW2022 will continue with the tradition of hosting five co-located topical conferences focusing on the intersection between wireless communication theory, systems, circuits, and device technologies. These topical conferences create a unique forum for engineers to discuss various technologies for state-of-the-art wireless systems and their end-use applications. The conferences that are part of RWW2022 bridge the gaps between digital, RF, hardware, and software, which all need to be seamlessly combined to keep the wireless industry and mobile applications moving forward. The co-located conferences that are part of RWW2022 include the Radio and Wireless Symposium (RWS), the 22nd Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems (SiRF), Power Amplifiers for Wireless and Radio Applications (PAWR), Wireless Sensors and Sensor Networks (WiSNet), and Space Hardware and Radio Conference (SHaRC).

Following last year's successful co-location with RWW, the 98th ARFTG Microwave Measurement Conference will again be held during RWW2022. ARFTG is the premier conference focused on RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave measurements, calibration, and uncertainty. Technical papers are presented on advanced measurement techniques, measurement standards, and linear and nonlinear device characterization and modeling. The ARFTG symposium includes the ARFTG conference itself with IEEE archived, technical papers, a series of short courses on microwave measurements, a joint exhibition with RWW2022, and IEEE standards meetings. For more information, visit the ARFTG website: www.arftg.org. We hope that RWW2022 will be a gathering where one will be inspired by the diverse technical content that might spark ideas for future research and product development.

Our traditional RWW program will again be followed, with technical papers presented in both standard podium presentations and a series of poster sessions. RWW2022 is planning a series of Sunday workshops (one full-day and two half-day), a session on Women in Microwave with high quality talks covering most of the areas in radio and wireless, a special track on Monday for IEEE Distinguished Lecturers, and a demo session. The Plenary Session will be held Tuesday morning where we will have our plenary speakers present their interesting and inspiring talks, and the winners of the student competitions will be announced. The RWW and ARFTG exhibitors will be co-located in the Exhibition Hall, so please take time to visit them to learn more about the latest software and hardware innovations impacting our field.

Always a highlight, we will again have a student paper competition as a way to support and encourage students to pursue a career in the wireless area. On Monday morning, all student paper competition finalists will give an oral 'elevator pitch' style presentation to a group of judges, and also present their work in the traditional interactive poster session. A Young Professionals meeting will be held with several interesting technical talks.

Finally, I would like to recognize and thank all of those on the RWW2022 Steering Committee for their volunteer time and effort in helping bring RWW2022 to fruition. The RWW2022 Steering Committee members come from all IEEE Regions, giving RWW2022 a truly international reach and flavor. I hope to see you in Las Vegas for four days of great technical presentations, discussions, and networking.
