Registration for IMS2017 is Open!
There are three registration periods, each with different rates. We appreciate your understanding that this multi-tiered registration structure allows the Steering Committee to more efficiently work out the logistics, while also serving the needs of our membership.
Early Bird Registration

|9 May - 2 June
|3 June - 9 June
The Early Bird Registration period provides discounted rates for those that want to plan ahead. Immediately following is Advance Registration, which ends just prior to the start of Microwave Week; the rates are higher than Early Bird, but lower than Onsite Registration.

- EXHIBITOR WORKSHOPS
New for IMS2017! Exhibitor Workshops are two-hour exhibitor-led presentations on in-depth technical topics in a workshop format off the exhibit floor.

This year, IMS is offering 16 Exhibitor Workshops covering a wide range of relevant topics. The IMS2017 Exhibitor Committee expects this new platform to provide lively interaction and in-depth discussions between the exhibitors and attendees.
**IMPORTANT:There will be NO hard media (printed, USB, or CD-ROM) Workshop Notes for the workshops this year. All workshop materials will be provided electronically (via the "cloud") so that registrants may have the option of downloading and printing the notes on their own before traveling.
