Welcome to MWE 2023

MWE 2023 (2023 Microwave Workshops and Exhibition) will be held from November 29th (Wed.) to December 1st (Fri.) at Pacifico Yokohama in the Minatomirai district of Yokohama. MWE 2023 is the complete in-person event after the restrictions implemented in the COVID-19 disaster were completely lifted. We look forward to meeting you at Pacifico Yokohama.

MWE is held in conjunction with APMC (Asia-Pacific Microwave Conference), the largest international microwave conference in the Asia-Pacific region, which is held in Japan once every four years along with IMS (International Microwave Symposium) in the United States and EuMW (European Microwave Week) in Europe. MWE serves as a forum for the integration of microwave technologies and industries in Japan and abroad. It also contributes to the development of academia, industry, and education in microwave-related fields in Japan by creating new technologies based on microwave technology and returning the resulting technologies to society and industry.

In the field of telecommunications, the 5th generation mobile communication system (5G) is now in commercial service, and its applications are expanding to energy, medicine, security, distribution, manufacturing, etc., in addition to information and communications. In addition, the development of next-generation Beyond 5G/6G technologies is gaining momentum. AI technologies such as large-scale language modeling (LLM) and machine learning, quantum technology as represented by quantum computers, and the dramatic development of micro semiconductor devices are revolutionizing various areas of society. Microwave technology and the fundamental devices and systems created by the microwave industry will further accelerate these transformations. Given these current conditions, microwave technology and the microwave industry based on microwave technology are becoming increasingly important and are expected to lead the industry. The keynote concept of MWE 2023 is "Microwave Community, Pioneering Innovations - Microwave Industry Creating Innovations".

The workshop will be held entirely on-site. The program consists of sessions on cutting-edge technologies related to the keynote concept, such as microwave infrastructure, AI, quantum computing, wireless power transmission, and ORAN, as well as basic and ultra-introductory lectures for beginners.
The keynote speech will be given by Mr. Yuji Nakamura, Director, Radio Policy Division, Radio Department, Telecommunications Infrastructure Bureau, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, on the latest trends in radio frequency administration. Next, Professor Teruya Fujii of Tokyo Institute of Technology will give a lecture on the latest trends in Beyond 5G/6G technology, focusing on HAPS technology.

The Microwave Exhibition will have the same exhibition structure as COVID-19 before the disaster, allowing visitors to directly see the new products and technologies of each company. Exhibitors' seminars will be held to introduce the latest technologies and products of exhibiting companies. MWE also plans to provide opportunities for universities, colleges of technology, and other research laboratories to present their latest research results and for universities, colleges of technology, and other research laboratories and companies to interact with each other. In addition, a competition will be held for students to compete in the creation of system/application/business model ideas.

Finally, we would like to express our sincere gratitude to the many people who have supported and patronized MWE 2023, and we hope that MWE 2023 will contribute to the further development of microwave-related fields, the creation of innovations, and the expansion of the microwave industry. We sincerely hope that MWE 2023 will contribute to the further development of microwave-related fields, the creation of innovation, and the expansion of the microwave industry.
