On the 4th and 5th of March, a workshop on polymer microwave fiber (PMF2019) will be held in Leuven, Belgium. I thought this might be of interest to some people here.

Taken from the about page on the website:

We are pleased to invite you to the First International Workshop on Polymer Microwave Fiber Technology (PMF2019), organized and hosted by the KU Leuven. Right in the center of the historic town of Leuven, we will discuss recent developments in the field of data transmission with microwave carriers through polymer fibers. The program is a mix of visionary talks, in-depth academic presentations and application oriented contributions from the industry.

This workshop aims to bring together all important players in this new field, academia as well as industry and other stakeholders, in order to build a PMF community in which research, development and productization can be stimulated.

Polymer Microwave Fiber is a communication concept that combines mm-wave chips, metal couplers and cheap plastic fibers. It has some unique benefits over copper wireline and optical, which can make it a preferred solution for low-cost, low-weight, robust and high-speed data communication in applications such as automotive and industrial ethernet, consumer-oriented connectivity, signal distribution and more.

PMF2019 is a two-day workshop that will take place in the Irish College in Leuven. On the evening of the first day, a dinner will be offered and a social activity will be foreseen, exploring the rich cultural and gastronomical offerings of Leuven. In case you need accommodation, we encourage you to book a room at the Irish College itself, as we have a special arrangement with them.

Full disclosure: I am not one of the organizers, but I am one of the speakers.
