Vietnam-Japan International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation

The Vietnam-Japan International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation will be held at Le Quy Don Technical University in Hanoi, Vietnam, from January 8 (Wednesday) to 10 (Friday), 2014. This symposium is sponsored and organized by the Technical Committee on Antennas and Propagation of the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE/AP), and is held in cooperation with the Technical Committee on Radio Communication Systems of IEICE (IEICE/RCS), the Antennas and Propagation Society Japan Chapter of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE AP-S Japan Chapter), the Radio-Electronics Association of Vietnam (REV), IEICE Vietnam Section, and IEEE Vietnam Section.

The symposium is intended to provide an international forum for the exchange of information on the progress of research and development in antennas, propagation, and radio communication systems. It is also an important objective of this symposium to enhance the friendship between Vietnamese and Japanese researchers.
