The 14th European Microwave Week
The 14th European Microwave Week 2011, being held this year in Manchester, builds on the success of the previous microwave weeks
held in Amsterdam (1998, 2004, 2008), London (2001), Manchester (2006), Milan (2002), Munich (1999, 2003, 2007), Paris (2000, 2005,
2010) and Rome (2009).
This conference has grown over the years and is now the premier event in this field in Europe. The European Microwave Week consists of
• The European Microwave Conference (EuMC)
• The European Microwave Integrated Circuits Conference (EuMIC)
• The European Radar Conference (EuRAD)
The week provides the opportunity to attend the three conferences, various workshops and short courses given by experts in their Field.
Additionally the European Microwave Exhibition constitutes the largest trade show on microwaves and RF in Europe.
The event focuses on the needs of engineers and researchers, both academic and industry-based and provides a forum for discussion and
dissemination of knowledge surrounding the latest trends and developments within the ever-widening field of microwaves. Microwave
devices, systems for telecommunications, transportation, medical, radar and new fields of application will be included in the programme.
EuMW2011 will take place at the brand new conference centre - Manchester Central, Manchester, England. Located in the heart of the
city the venue is easy to access with good transportation links from around the UK and a direct train service from Manchester airport.

Submission of Preliminary Papers
and General Instructions for Authors
In 2011 the submission of summaries is replaced by submission of preliminary papers. Authors should submit a 4 page preliminary
paper in the standard conference proceedings layout. A template can be downloaded from the EuMW2011 website:
www.eumweek.com. The paper must be uploaded in pdf format. The maximum file size is 1 MB. It is essential to emphasise the novel
aspects of your paper. One author information form per paper must be completed at the EuMW2011 website when uploading the paper.
The week comprises three conferences. A paper can only be submitted to a single conference. Do not upload the same paper to more
than one conference. The deadline for submission of preliminary papers is February 12th 2011, 12:00pm CET. This is a firm deadline.
Late submissions cannot be accepted.
Each paper will be reviewed by the Technical Programme Committee of the conference for which the paper has been proposed by the
author(s). Exceptionally the EuMW General Chairman reserves the right to redirect a paper which does not fit with the conference
selected by its authors towards the most appropriate conference. For topics common to two or more conferences, as indicated in the
respective topics lists, the decision about acceptance of the paper will be taken jointly by both Technical Programme Committees.
Even in this case, each paper must be submitted to only one conference, selected by the author(s). Authors will be notified of the
status of their submission by April 21st 2011. A final paper will be required by June 13th 2011. Authors of accepted papers will find
instructions for publication and presentation at the EuMW2011 website. Authors are responsible for obtaining publication approval
by their employer.
Authors are required to submit a preliminary 4-page paper in pdf format via the EuMW2011 paper submission website
http://www.mtt-tpms.org/symposia_v6/EuMW2011/start.html. Papers must be written in English and formatted in the standard
conference proceedings layout on A4 paper. Word or Latex Templates can be downloaded from the IEEE Conference Publishing
http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html site. Please make sure that you choose the correct
files and settings for an A4 conference paper.
Incentives for Authors
All participants to one of the three conferences will receive one CD-ROM with the proceedings of all three conferences. Furthermore,
all accepted papers will be published on IEEE Xplore. Selected papers will also be nominated by the Technical Programme Committee
for a special issue of Proceedings of the EuMA International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies.
Greater importance will be attached to the poster sessions which will be much more interesting and lively, with their own dedicated
timeslots. The poster areas will be designed to encourage information exchange and discussions between authors and participants.
Also an interactive poster session is organised jointly by EuMC and EuRAD. During this session the authors can demonstrate real-time
operation of hardware or software or present videos, showing the operation of complete systems.
Each conference will award a best paper conference prize and a young engineer’s prize. Prize winners will receive a financial award.
Workshops and Short Courses
During EuMW2011, a variety of different workshops, short courses and focussed sessions on a variety of topics will be organised.
For EuMW2011, Sunday 9th October and Friday 14th October will be devoted to a variety of workshops and short courses.
Any suggestions are welcome and people are encouraged to submit proposals for Workshops/Short Courses.
Please e-mail your proposals by February 12th 2011 to the Workshop Chairman, Dr Johannes Benedikt, email@example.com
Proposals should be on one page, indicating the selected conference (EuMC, EuMIC or EuRAD), the title and a short abstract of the
topic, the name(s), affiliation and e-mail address of the Workshop organiser(s), the duration (half or whole day), a preliminary list of
speakers and the expected attendance.
Workshop proposals will be validated at the TPC meeting in April 2011.
• February 12th 2011 Deadline for submission of papers,
proposals for workshops and short courses.
• April 21st 2011 Notification of acceptance.
• June 1st 2011 Submission of requests for grants and fellowships.
• June 13th 2011 Submission of final papers for EuMC, EuMIC and EuRAD.
