Welcome to MWE 2016

The Microwave Workshops and Exhibition, or MWE, is the largest annual academic event in Japan for RF/microwave engineers and researchers in academic and governmental institutions and private companies. MWE has been contributing to make collaborations among industry, government, and academia and to form a microwave community in Japan, which advance the development in the microwave technologies for a smart and sustainable society. Furthermore, a part of the properties of the MWE has been utilized for the Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference, held quadrennially in Japan since 1990, where not only the Japanese technologies has been emitted, but also the action plans have been considered for development in the Japanese microwave technologies. This relationship between MWE and APMC has been constructed by the great contributions of lecturers, exhibitors, participants and the relevant persons of MWE.
