Papers invited for 2013 Loughborough Antennas and Propagation Conference

Papers are invited for the ninth annual Loughborough Antennas and Propagation Conference (LAPC), being held at the University in November.

LAPC is now the largest annual UK conference dedicated to the field of antennas and propagation. This established series of conferences regularly attracts more than 200 national and international participants from academia, research institutes, industry and government bodies. 

The University’s Burleigh Court International Conference Centre will again host this year’s event, taking place from 11 – 12 November 2013.

Invited guest speakers will present in the following special sessions:

  • Space Antennas
  • Latest development in antenna measurements, modelling and simulations
  • Emerging technologies in antennas
  • Radio Propagation and wireless networks

Loughborough University has extensive expertise in the field of antennas and propagation. Research into wireless communications has been conducted at the campus for more than 20 years and in 1998 this was further enhanced by the creation of the Centre for Mobile Communications Research in the School of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering. The group specialises in antennas and associated devices for mobile telephony in GSM, GPS, UMTS, UWB, BluetoothTM and WLAN applications.

It features a range of modelling tools and measurements facilities, including network and spectrum analysers, two anechoic chambers suitable for full characterisation of antennas and handset measurements, and a Dosimetric Assessment System for standardised Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) measurements.

Since its inception, the group has built up an international reputation for the quality of its research on both academic subjects and industry based projects.
