Microwave Update 2018 Call for Papers

Saturday, March 17, 2018 - 14:11

From John Ackermann, N8UR

Microwave Update (MUD) is an international conference dedicated to microwave equipment design, construction, and operation. It is focused on, but not limited to, amateur radio on the microwave bands. The Midwest VHF/UHF Society is pleased to host this year's event. The conference will be held at the Holiday Inn, 2800 Presidential Drive, Fairborn, Ohio 45324 from October 11 - 14, 2018.

Call for Presentations and Papers: The program committee is calling for papers and presentations on the technical and operational aspects of microwave amateur radio communications. Tell us about your latest project, design or operating adventures. Please e-mail your proposals, questions, and submissions to John Ackermann, N8UR, at jra@febo.com. Don't wait until the beginning of September to let us know what you're planning!

Presentations selected for the technical program may be given in person or by proxy. Please send an abstract and expected duration no later than August 25, 2018 so that we can determine and announce the program agenda the following week. Ideally, send your draft presentation by the same date. We encourage presenters to submit a companion paper for publication in the proceedings book. This paper would ideally be text based and expand on the presentation slides, but a simple copy of the slides is also okay. Either way, this material must be received no later than September 1, 2018 to be included in the book. Additional material (presentation slides, schematics, source code, more text, background info, etc.) to be included on the proceedings CD must arrive no later than September 25, 2018.  All conference attendees will receive a copy of the book and CD.

Full details, including suggested topics, paper guidelines, schedule, and hotel information can be found on the MUD website: www.microwaveupdate.org.
