DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO JAN 11, 2019


PDF Version of iWAT 2019 CFP (Updated Oct 18)


The International Workshop on Antenna Technology (iWAT) is an annual forum for the exchange of information on the progress of research and development in innovative antenna technology. It especially focuses on small antennas and applications of advanced and artificial materials to the antenna design. At iWAT, all the oral presentations are delivered by invited prominent researchers and professors. iWAT has a particular focus on posters by which authors have the opportunity to interact with leading researchers in their fields.
