Special Sessions at EuCAP 2018


Special Session at EuCAP 2018

Date: April 9-13, 2018
Location: London, UK

COST Action CA15104 (IRACON) organizes Special Sessions at the 12nd European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP), to be held in London, UK, on 9-13 April 2018.

With an attendance over 1000 delegates, EuCAP has provided the ideal place for the exchange of scientific and technical information, and to foster collaboration and cooperation in the Antenna and Propagation domain, at both European and global levels. With this aim, EuCAP has been a regular keystone event on Antennas and Propagation, with a large participation of the world community. In addition to enabling the exchange of information and the access to the latest developments in the field through guest speakers and paper presentations, the conference features exhibitors demonstrating software, equipment, and technology. A wide variety of applications, ranging from mobile and satellite communications to medicine are addressed.
