On behalf of the IEEE COMCAS 2023 Steering Committee, it is our pleasure to launch the 9th International IEEE Conference on Microwaves, Communications, Antennas, Biomedical Engineering and Electronic Systems (IEEE COMCAS 2023). In 2023 the international IEEE COMCAS will continue to evolve and provide an advanced multidisciplinary forum for the exchange of ideas, research results, and industry experience in a range of key areas i.e., microwaves, communications and sensors, antennas, biomedical engineering, RF and microwave devices and circuits, thermal management and electronic packaging, signal processing and imaging, as well as radar, acoustics and microwave system engineering. In its entirety the event includes a technical program, industry exhibits, and guest presentations from global experts on recent academic and industry advancements.
In launching the 2023 event, we would also like to welcome you to the sunshine of the eastern Mediterranean, in Tel Aviv. As a cosmopolitan city of stunning views and endless innovation Tel Aviv is a center that resonates with an energized atmosphere, streets of storied history, and an internationally recognized nightlife. Taking place 6-8 November 2023 in Tel Aviv, Israel, at the David Intercontinental Hotel by the Mediterranean Sea; IEEE COMCAS will continue a biennial series tailored to maximize professional networking, support the candid exchange of ideas, and develop a range of enduring opportunities.
Our Technical Program is paired with a Technical Exhibition that offers companies and agencies a unique opportunity to visit Israel, present relevant products and quality services, and pursue key networking opportunities. Attendees can take part and engage with new contacts, create business opportunities and solidify contracts for the future.
IEEE COMCAS is recognized as one of the world's leading IEEE conferences and a specialty in its field. The event receives hundreds of manuscript submissions, draws together speakers from public, private, and academic practice, and presents the next frontier of industry potential.
Held before the COVID-19 pandemic, IEEE COMCAS 2019 was our greatest success to date with nearly 1900 attendees, over 240 guest lectures, in 88 sessions, alongside participants from 39 countries, and exhibitors from more than 100 industry vendors. Despite COVID-19 and its impact on events and travel, IEEE COMCAS 2021 was successful in attracting approximately 1200 attendees. Following 3 years of world transformation, we are confident that IEEE COMCAS 2023 will transcend our expectations on both a professional and personal level.
We invite you to join us in Tel Aviv 6-8 November 2023, and enjoy returning as a part of our active community at IEEE COMCAS.
