Exhibitors at the Symposium are invited to submit technical presentations describing state-of-the-art products, design techniques and processes of interest to the RF and microwave community. Papers should be prepared for verbal presentation, as well as electronic distribution, to EuMW attendees.

The intent of this open forum is for Exhibitors to highlight products and techniques useful to engineers in their day to day design work. Be sure to plan your visit to the MicroApps Theatre when you are touring the Exhibit floor.


  • MicroApps features a wide range of practical application papers describing novel products and processes as well as keynote talks by well-known experts in RF/MW industry.
  • MicroApps sessions are held on the entrance of the Exhibition floor at the MicroApps Theatre.
  • Exhibition Only Badges or Conference Badges enable complimentary access to all MicroApps sessions.
  • A web download will be available for the papers presented as well as bottled water.
  • Presentation Proposals Due: May 4, 2018
  • Proposal Selection Announcements: May 31, 2018
  • Final Manuscripts for Downloads Due: August 24, 2018
  • Final Presentations Due: September 21, 2018
The presentations are typically 20 minutes in length and are open to all conference and exhibit attendees. MicroApps are sponsored by Horizon House, National Instruments and Rohde & Schwarz.

Call For Papers


Proposal Format

Proposals (in English) must be submitted as one PDF (Acrobat v6.0 or newer) formatted file which contains: Speaker information: name(s), title(s), company, affiliation, telephone number and email address. Submit by email to microapps2018@eumweek.com.

A 100 to 200 word abstract describing the product or process, its importance to the microwave community and how it advances the state-of-the-art in an application. A statement, on company letterhead, authorizing EuMW 2018 to print your abstract and to record and publish your manuscript and technical presentation on a limited access website if your seminar is selected must also accompany the proposal.

The decision to accept a presentation is based on this summary and confirmation that your organization is a registered Exhibitor at EuMW 2018.

Selection Criteria

Each registered EuMW 2018 Exhibitor is invited to submit MicroApps proposals. All submissions and presentations must be in English, and may cover new products, noteworthy state-of-the-art components, new technologies, manufacturing and design techniques incorporating the Exhibitor's products and technologies. These submissions will be reviewed by the EuMW 2018 MicroApps committee based on the abstract. Presentations are open to all EuMW registrants and should appeal to the Exhibition attendees. The selection criteria include relevance and interest to the local microwave community, as well as being a registered Exhibitor at EuMW 2018. The purpose of MicroApps is to communicate practical knowledge. Tutorials and application notes on basic techniques and important knowledge are encouraged. Marketing, sales, or theoretical presentations are not appropriate for MicroApps.

Presentation Format

PowerPoint presentations with embedded videos are strongly encouraged. The presentations are made in the MicroApps Theatre which is located in the the Exhibition floor. Presenting companies will be given the opportunity to invite people to hear these presentations using an "Exhibition Only" pass to EuMW 2018.

Presentations are typically 20 minutes in length. Time allocations for each presentation will be set by the review committee. Presentation time may be reduced to accommodate multiple submissions from Exhibitors. Presentations should be by digital projection using the session PC and are due on August 24, 2018 or before.
