A new kind of technical conference and trade show, developed for and by the
high-frequency/high-speed electronics industry and Microwave Journal China.
These sessions feature presentations from a panel of experts followed by a joint question and answer session with audience members. Each session will include panelists recognized for their expertise in their respective fields. Each panelist will give a 10 to 15 minute presentation (depending on forum length) on the challenges and potential solutions impacting a specific technology or application.
Panel themes mirror the tracks of the technical sessions with an emphasis on Design, measurement/simulation/modeling and system engineering. Some proposed panel sessions include:
Workshops provide an one-hour long forum from industry practitioners to share their recent research and development experiences/results on specific challenging and emerging topics related to high frequency/high speed electronic design. Workshops bring experts together to explore a narrow theme of high interest in depth. Introductory material may be included to educate non-experts. These session will be structured and moderated by the organizer so that the audience is actively engaged, resulting in a high level of interaction between the speakers and the attendees. These sessions can be organized around a single presenter or group of speakers discussing a common topic.
Workshops are an interactive experience, allowing extra time for audience questions and participation. In addition to audience Q&A, workshops may include demonstrations and opportunities to work with design software and/or measurement equipment. Workshops offer practical, real world examples of today’s engineering design challenges and the solutions being developed by industry leaders.
Tutorials are a form of short course, presenting information on fundamental engineering/design theory, new technologies and techniques. Tutorial or review material may be provided by the organizers to assist the attendees with less knowledge of the subject. As an educational workshop, time devoted to participation may be reduced from that allotted for workshops although interaction is still encouraged. Tutorials may also include demonstrations and opportunities to work with design software and/or measurement equipment. Attendees are encouraged to bring questions, design issues, and design hints that they would like to share with the instructors during the Q&A period per the discretion of the tutorial organizer.
