The Industry Paper Competition (IPC) recognizes outstanding technical contributions from industry sources. All finalist papers are from the RF/microwave industry and describe innovation of a product or system application that potentially has the highest impact on an RF/microwave product and/or system which will significantly benefit the microwave community and society at large. 

Congratulations to this year's finalists!
