CLASTECH is a technical symposium held yearly highlighting recent developments in RF and microwave technologies as a joint effort by the local chapters of the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) and the Antennas and Propagation Society (APS).  The event will return to the Proud Bird Events Center Friday, November 2, 2018: Exhibit floor open from 7:30 a.m to 3:30 p.m., technical talks from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Both the Proud Bird Restaurant and Events Center have been completely remodeled bringing new life to a revered landmark.

Dual technical tracks are presented.  The technical tracks are focused on technology for each of the two chapters, one on antennas and the other on RF/microwave.  Presenters are drawn from all areas of the globe: from the technology rich LA Basin to the far reaches of friendly international  tech centers.

A table-top technical exhibition including leading OEM's, local representative firms, and distributors surrounds the banquet tables where lunch and refreshments are served.  This venue and arrangement provides attendees a great way to get the latest technical updates as well as an opportunity to network among their peers.

​The 2018 CLASTECH Symposium and Exhibition will include technical sessions, a poster session, and tabletop exhibits.   A buffet lunch will be provided.  To get the ½ price fee ($20), register on-line and ensure that you get lunch, please register before October 26, 2018.  Onsite registration will be $40.  Parking is free!
