Marking its 10th year anniversary in 2016, 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 have a new venue for 2016, The LAX Marriott on Friday, October 28, 2016, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Dual technical and one industry 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.  The industry track is more broad covering current technical capabilities of the companies presenting.  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.
