IMWS-5G is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) and the European Microwave Association (EUMA).

MTT-S Logo-blue-WebHex The MTT-S is a transnational society with more than 10,500 members and 190 chapters worldwide. Our society promotes the advancement of microwave theory and its applications, including RF, microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz technologies.

For more than 60 years the MTT-S has worked to advance the professional standing of its members and enhance the quality of life for all people through the development and application of microwave technology. As we enter into an exciting future, our mission is to continue to understand and influence microwave technology, and to provide a forum for all microwave engineers. The MTT-S will continue to be the global focus for promotion of the RF and microwave engineering profession, by advancing and distributing knowledge and supporting professional development.

This is an all-volunteer society, driven to excellence by its leadership, with the active participation of all its world-wide members. The activities sponsored by the MTT-S include a broad spectrum of conferences, workshops, tutorials, technical committees, chapter meetings, publications and professional education programs. Our principal publications and conferences are world class, peer reviewed and recognized as top of class. Our professional venues provide a great opportunity for networking with experienced innovators, experts, and practitioners. Our volunteer programs provide for the development of critical, non-technical skills that enable you to be more effective professionally.

The MTT-S publishes peer-reviewed technical papers in the Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, the Transactions on Terahertz Science and Technology, the Microwave and Wireless Component Letters, and the Microwave Magazine. More information on how to access our papers and to write for our publications can be found at mtt.org/publications.html. More information about joining IEEE and MTT-S can be found at our membership page.


EuMA logo The European Microwave Association (EuMA) is an international non-profit association with a scientific, educational and technical purpose. The aim of the Association is to develop in an interdisciplinary way, education, training and research activities, including:

  • Promoting European microwaves
  • Networking and uniting microwave scientists and engineers in Europe
  • Providing a single voice for European microwave scientists and engineers in Europe
  • Promoting public awareness and appreciation of microwaves
  • Attaining full recognition of microwaves by the European Union
  • Organizing European Microwave Symposia and, in particular, theEuropean Microwave Conference (EuMC)and theEuropean Microwave Week (EuMW),as well as all the associated events
  • Circulating information among European microwave scientists and engineers

The Association is allowed to perform all actions directly or indirectly related to its object. In particular, it may organize any form of cooperation between its members, symposia, seminars, study schemes, and carry out and publish studies, magazines or books, etc. The development of EuMA is strongly related to the historical development of the European Microwave Conference (EuMC). More information about joining EuMA can be found at our membership page.


IMWS-5G is also co-sponsored by IEEE 5G Initiative, CONNECT and MCCI.
