Advances and Challenges in Communication Technology

The radio and optical systems are ubiquitous in modern society, being key enabling technologies addressing several societal challenges. Researchers, engineers and end users interested in these fields are welcome to join us in Aveiro, Portugal for the 18th edition of the International Microwave and Optoelectronics Conference (IMOC) in November 2019.

The International Microwave and Optoelectronics Conference takes place biennially since 1985, aiming at exchange and dissemination of scientific and technological knowledges. It is currently an event sponsored by the Brazilian Microwave and Optoelectronic Society (SBMO) and the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S). For the first time since its creation IMOC will leave the Brazilian territory and will be held in Portugal. The organization will be in charge of the Instituto de Telecomunicações / Universidade de Aveiro / Instituto Superior Técnico, in Portugal, and Laboratório de Telecomunicações (LabTel) of Federal University of Espírito Santo, in Brazil.

IMOC 2019 will provide a favourable environment for learning and discussing advances in applications of optical and radio technologies. The conference topics of interest include (but are not limited to) all aspects related with the use of radio/microwave and photonic/optics in the following tracks, covering both theoretical and practical aspects:

  • Fundamental Effects, Devices and Components;
  • Circuits, Systems and Networks;
  • Field Trial and Applications: 5G, Internet of Things / Cyber Physical Systems, Energy, Satellite.

We look forward to seeing you in Aveiro in November 2019!
