Swedish Microwave Days


The Swedish Microwave Days brings, for the third time, the GigaHertz Symposium and AntennEMB Symposium into a major joint two-day microwave event – this time at Konsert & Kongressexternal link in Linköping. With joint exhibitions, plenary sessions, invited speakers, and social events the Swedish Microwave Days will be the perfect meeting point for everyone who is interested to learn about recent advances in microwave, millimeter-wave, THz, or antenna technology or to hear about the recent advances in wireless communications, sensor, and emerging applications.







Please join us at the premier Nordic venue for industrial and academic microwave research!



Distin guished international keynote speakers:


Prof. Tadao Nagatsuma, Osaka University, “Future of THz Communications” 
Prof. Rudiger Quay, Fraunhofer Institute of Applied Solid-State Physics (IAF), “Gallium Nitride: A Material of Today: Trends and Challenges”
Dr. Sherif S. Ahmed, Rohde & Schwarz, “Microwave Imagers in Security and Industry Fields”
Prof. Fredrik Tufvesson, Lund University, “Massive MIMO for next generation wireless systems, opportunities and challenges from an implementation perspective”
Prof. Christophe Caloz, École Polytechnique de Montréal “Real-Time Analog Signal Processing for Tomorrow’s Radio”
Prof. Karl F. Warnick, Brigham Young University “Ultra-high Efficiency Phased Arrays for Astronomy, Remote Sensing, and Satellite Communications”




“Microwave Electronics has a strong position in Sweden both from academic and industrial viewpoint. By joining the Swedish Microwave Days 2016, the attendee will get a snapshot of the present status on the research and development within the field. Presentations from national academic groups and industry as well as invited presentations from internationally recognized groups will make this event a success story”, says Professor Herbert Zirath, Chalmers University.






“Antenna technology and computational electromagnetics have long traditions in Sweden, and national conferences have been organized for several decades under the auspices of the national Swedish Committee of Radio Science (SNRV). The strong interaction between the subjects has been of mutual benefit, and the AntennEMB Symposium is an exciting opportunity for radio scientists to meet and exchange ideas”, says Professor Daniel Sjöberg, Lund University, and Chairman of SNRV Commission B, Fields and Waves.



GigaHertz Symposium

GigaHertz Symposium is a biennial conference in the field of GigaHertz technology. This will be the 13th GigaHertz Symposium after its start in Linköping 1992. The scope is broad, ranging from devices to systems, and from single GHz frequencies up to several THz. The conference is a meeting place for researchers in the field from industry, academia, and research institutes. The format of the conference is a mix of invited talks and regular submitted papers. A number of leading researchers have been invited to give presentations of different hot topics in GigaHertz and TeraHertz technology.


The emphasis of GigaHertz is on new high-speed devices and circuits and their implementation in wireless communication, sensors and fiber optic communication systems. We also welcome submissions in emerging nanodevices, wireless and optical communication and antenna integration. 


AntennEMB Symposium

AntennEMB, is the radio science conference on Antennas and Computational Electromagnetics organized by SNRV (Svenska Nationalkommittén för Radiovetenskap, the Swedish URSI Committee). The AntennEMB has been organized on a regular basis for more than a decade and the last conference was held in Gothenburg 2014 as part of the Swedish Microwave Days. The format of the conference combines invited key-note talks with original contributions from the conference participants in the form of oral presentations and interactive poster sessions.


The aim is to bring together people from industry, academia and other research oriented organizations with an interest in antennas and computational electromagnetics. The scope of the conference includes the development of computational methods, optimization algorithms and programming techniques, and all types of antenna technology, applications, theory and measurement techniques.
