Workshop 28: Advanced Antennas and RF Circuits for Wireless Communications and IoT Applications

Keywords: Advanced antennas, RF circuits, wireless communications, IoT

The rapid development of wireless communications and Internet of Things (IoT) promote the research of antennas and RF circuits from both academia and industry. To achieve better system performance, such as higher data rate, lower latency, and better energy efficiency, it is expected that antennas and RF circuits for these systems have advanced features such as small footprint, wide bandwidth, and high efficiency. This workshop calls for works demonstrating the most recent progress and contributions to the antennas and RF circuits for wireless communications and IoT applications. In particular, this workshop will focus on the following topics. (1) Advanced antennas that use novel techniques achieving excellent performance or diverse functionality for wireless communications and IoT applications. (2) RF circuits that employ new components/materials providing attractive performances or supporting multi-functionality for IoT applications.
