Greetings From General Chair of Radio & Wireless Week 2024
Welcome to the 19th IEEE Radio & Wireless Week (RWW) to be held during the week of 21 January 2024 in San Antonio, TX, USA! San Antonio is located in the heart of Texas and is known for an eclectic mix of Mexican, German, French, and Old West cultures that combine to create an “only in San Antonio” experience. The conference venue Grand Hyatt San Antonio River Walk celebrates the history and charm of the Alamo City with a welcoming spirit and an elegant style. Besides built-in world-class conference facilities for professional activities, the hotel offers plenty family-friendly rooms and suites right on the River Walk in downtown San Antonio, steps from top attractions like the Alamodome, AT&T Center and The Alamo.
Over the years, RWW has become an icon of “January family reunion” for the wireless and microwave community from all over the world to discuss the latest trends in their areas of expertise based on five co-located conferences: the IEEE Topical Conference on Power Amplifiers for Wireless and Radio Applications (PAWR), the Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits in RF Systems (SiRF), IEEE Topical Conference on Wireless Sensors and Sensor Networks (WiSNet), IEEE Space Hardware and Radio Conference (SHaRC), and Radio and Wireless Symposium (RWS). This complementary sub-conference structure covers all timely topics of radio wireless technologies, from theory to practical implementation, from integrated chips to large-scale systems, from kilohertz to terahertz, from communication to sensing and space applications.
Each co-located conference has its focus days: PAWR will be held on Monday, SiRF on Monday and Tuesday, WiSNet and SHaRC on Wednesday, which takes place along with at least one track of RWS session Monday through Wednesday. This core technical program will be strengthened by several workshops and short courses to address the latest trends in radio and wireless.
The 2024 class of MTT-S Distinguished Microwave Lecturers will present their talks during a dedicated track on Monday, which is a perfect opportunity to get a comprehensive overview on some popular MTT-S areas. Panel session of female role models will be again organized by the Women in Microwave team. Two world renowned keynote speakers will give their insights during the plenary session on Tuesday morning, where also the winners of the student paper competition will be awarded.
We are very proud that again the Automatic Radio Frequency Techniques Group (ARFTG) will co-locate their conference with RWW. Besides the ARFTG conference with technical papers and short courses, a joint ARFTG & RWW exhibition will be hosted to showcase the latest products and solutions from industry. The exhibition floor will also highlight an industry reception open to all conference attendees. Another highlight is the co-located Internet of Things (IoT) summit, one of the very successful collaborations of RWW with other communities. As always, IoT summit will be highly interactive with strong involvement of the audience in panel discussions.
At this moment, we would like to warmly welcome you to submit papers to RWW 2024. We also greatly appreciate your discussion with the steering committee about workshop, special session, and panel ideas. RWW makes every effort to support researchers and practitioners to organize advanced workshops, special sessions, and panels. With our join efforts, we look forward to a strong program and a wonderful event for professional interactions during RWW 2024 in San Antonio!
