IEEE Radio & Wireless Symposium

17 - 20 January 2021
San Diego, California, USA

The 2021 IEEE Radio and Wireless Symposium (RWS2021) will be held virtually during the week of 17 January 2021.

RWS2021 and the 21st IEEE Topical Meeting on Silicon Monolithic Integrated Circuits (SiRF2021) are co-located and will continue to hold joint sessions. Topical conferences held in parallel provide more focused sessions in the areas of RF Power Amplifiers (PAWR), Wireless Sensors and Sensor Networks (WiSNet), and The IEEE Space Hardware and Radio Conference (SHaRC). The RWS Demonstration Track provides an interactive forum for hands-on demonstration of latest wireless experiments and innovations. There are also focus sessions on 5G and MM-Wave to THz Technologies and Applications.

The call for papers can be download here.
