It is my great honor to welcome you to participate the 2010 Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference (APM C2010), which is well recognized as the most prestigious microwave conference in the Asia Pacific region, to be held during December 7-10, 2010 at the Pacifico Yokohama, in Yokohama, Japan.
APMC 2010 is the 22nd APMC, which started in 1986 in India, and the 6th to be held here in Japan. During that time, Microwaves and related technologies made remarkable progress supported by social demands through the world. We organize the conference under the theme of “Novel technology waves from historical port” at Yokohama, the famous historical port opened to the world from the mid 19th century. Waves are always ultimate ubiquitous tool for information and energy transmission, as well as a variety of sensing.
Organized and sponsored by the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers, APCM 2010 is devoted to the research, development, and application of RF and microwave theory and techniques, and aims to continue and accelerate the momentum of researching in microwave areas and bring together researchers and engineers from Asia-Pacific region as well as other parts of the world to discuss and exchange experiences. Six workshops and two short courses offer very exciting topics in the microwave technologies definitely. It is also cooperatively sponsored by IEEE MTT-S, EuMA, IEEE AP-S,URSI, IEEE MTT-S Japan/Kansai/Nagoya Chapters and supported by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications of Japanese Government.
At the Exhibition Hall adjacent to the Conference Center, "Microwave Exhibition 2010", which is the largest trade show dedicated to RF and microwaves in Asia, will be held from December 8-10, 2010. More than 350 microwave-related companies from all over the world will exhibit the latest products. To add to all of this, an exhibition by the Japanese microwave history and another exhibition by the universities and colleges from Japan and other countries will be held in the same hall.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to the authors for submitting their papers and presenting their results, to the sponsors, invited speakers and all the steering committee members, without whose supports this conference might not be possible.
Finally I wish you will join APCM 2010 and enjoy the novel technology waves emerging in the Microwave oceans.
