History

The Ukrainian Microwave Week is organized to unite several international Microwave, Antennas and Radar conferences and symposia which are traditionally held in Ukraine. As a result, in 2020, four IEEE conferences (MSMW, ICATT, MRRS and UWBUSIS) were united into one common event IEEE Ukrainian Microwave Week. In 2022, another IEEE conference, DIPED, also joined the Week.
The Week is held every even year starting from 2020.
In order to honour the history of the conferences included in the Week, the numbering of conferences has been retained and continued.
In 2022 those numbers are:
  • IEEE 11th International Kharkiv Symposium on Physics and Engineering of Microwaves, Millimeter and Submillimeter Waves (MSMW)
  • IEEE 13th International Conference on Antenna Theory and Techniques (ICATT)
  • IEEE 7th International Symposium on Microwaves, Radar and Remote Sensing (MRRS)
  • IEEE 11th International Conference on Ultrawideband and Ultrashort Impulse Signals (UWBUSIS)

History before 2020:
IEEE International Kharkiv Symposium on Physics and Engineering of Microwaves, Millimeter and Submillimeter Waves (MSMW)
The MSMW Symposium has an old history, started in 1974 from a series of conferences on millimeter and sub-millimeter waves occasionally held in the USSR. Now it is one of the large forums that joins leading scientists and engineers from former USSR and Western countries.
IEEE International Conference on Antenna Theory and Techniques (ICATT)
This conference has been held since 1995. The conference’s topics include a wide range of antenna and wave propagation issues. Since 2003 ICATT was held under IEEE sponsorship.
7th International Symposium on Microwaves, Radar and Remote Sensing (MRRS)
The Symposium continues the series of very successful MRRS Symposia which are conducted regularly since 2005.
IEEE 11th International Conference on Ultrawideband and Ultrashort Impulse Signals (UWBUSIS)
The conference started in 2002 as a small one-day event, but since 2004 it has got IEEE technical support. The UWBUSIS provided the international forum for discussing recent advances in ultrawideband and ultrashort impulse signals problems and related issues.
27th International Seminar/Workshop on Direct and Inverse Problems of Electromagnetic and Acoustic Wave Theory (DIPED)
The Seminar/Workshop on the Direct and Inverse Problems of the Electromagnetic and Acoustics Theory (DIPED) has been held since 1995 and became the status of the IEEE Technically Co-Sponsored event in 1998. The IEEE Antennas and Propagation, Electron Devices, and Microwave Theory and Techniques Societies have been Technical Co-Sponsors of the DIPED since that time. DIPED’s main co-organizers are both the IEEE MTT/ED/AP Georgia Chapter and Ukraine Section (West) MTT/ED/AP/EP/SSC Societies Joint Chapter. Traditionally DIPED Seminar/Workshop was held annually on a rotation basis at the Tbilisi State University (Tbilisi, Georgia) and Pidstryhach Institute for Applied Problems of Mechanics and Mathematics (Lviv, Ukraine). This year, 2022, the DIPED Seminar/Workshop will be held firstly within the 2022 IEEE Ukrainian Microwave Week.
