Seahee Hwangbo, a UF student advised by Prof. YK Yoon, won the second place Student Paper Competition (SPC) Award in the IEEE International Microwave Symposium (IMS) for her paper “Cu/Co Metaconductor Based High Signal Integrity Transmission Lines for Millimeter Wave Applications.”
IMS 2017 received over 390 submissions for the SPC with 24 finalists and 4 winners. Students are required to give a 25 minute technical talk and participate in a three-hour poster session. The purpose of the SPC is to recognize outstanding technical contributions from individual students and the paper selection criteria are originality, quantitative content, clarity, interest to Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) membership, and technical areas of the work.
The IEEE IMS is the premier annual international meeting of the IEEE MTT-S for technologists involved in all aspects of microwave theory and practice. The IMS 2017, held June 4-9, 2017 in Honolulu, Hawaii, saw a participation of over 10,000 attendees, including 3,000 technical program attendees from more than 60 countries, over 75 technical sessions, workshops, and panels sessions, and a record breaking exhibition with 625 exhibiting companies.
Please join us in congratulating Seahee on her outstanding accomplishment!
