Millimeter-Wave Technology Workshop
October 30, 2014

We are pleased to announce the Millimeter-Wave Technology Workshop and the Davis Millimeter- Wave Research Center (DMRC) Industry Day Meeting hosted at the University of California, Davis on Thursday, October 30th, 2014 at the Student Community Center. UC Davis Chancellor and DMRC member, Linda Katehi, will give the opening address and welcome. The workshop will feature prominent speakers from government and industry and the DMRC meeting will include state-of-the-art millimeter-wave laboratory tours and a student poster session showcasing current research. It is an excellent opportunity to stay up to date on state-of-the-art millimeter-wave technologies and to interact with students, faculty, and industry leaders.

The DMRC is broadly focused on fostering millimeter wave and THz technology for wireless communications, radar, sensing, and imaging systems. The activities in the DMRC range from devices, integrated circuits, components and packaging, sub-systems to system implementation.

We are pleased to announce that Keysight Technologies, Inc, will be co-sponsoring this year's workshop, along with the College of Engineering's Corporate Relations office. We look forward to seeing you on October 30th, 2014.
