Welcome Speech

Welcome to Harbin!


Dear Colleagues:                                                                                       

It is our great pleasure and honor to invite you to attend the third Asia-Pacific Conference on Antennas and Propagation, APCAP 2014, which will be held in Harbin, China, from July 26 to July 28, 2014. We want to cite a saying from Confucius, a famous Chinese Philosopher: “It is always a pleasure to greet a friend coming from a far”. (有朋自远方来不亦乐乎).


In 1864, Maxwell founded the Maxwell's equations, the great work brought many amazing scientific discoveries for wireless world. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the foundation of Maxwell’s equations. To commemorate the inventions and contributions of electromagnetic scientists, we are privileged to hold APCAP2014 in Harbin. It is the honor of us hosts and the happiness of all participants that many leading experts from all over the world get together in Harbin. We invited prestigious scholars coming from universities, research institutions and famous companies at home and abroad, including IEEE fellows and distinguished lecturers. Besides, we also organize industry exhibition coming from domestic and oversea companies to show their recent progress in antennas related production.


APCAP 2014, as the premier conference on all aspects of Antennas and Propagation provides a range of oral and poster presentations, invited talks, keynote speakers, technical forums, tutorial sessions and industry exhibitions, and lets the attendants exchange ideas in the latest developments in Antennas, Wave Propagation, Measurements and Instrumentation, Electro-Magnetics, RF/ Microwaves/ Millimeter Waves/THz, Active and passive components, EMC/EMI, etc. from fundamental electromagnetic theory to advances in antennas and wave propagation, and to the emerging applications of different fields.


The theme of APCAP 2014 is determined as “ANTENNAS AMPLIFY WIRELESS”. The first APCAP was successfully inaugurated in Singapore in 2012 and the second APCAP with a success was held in 2013 in Thailand. We would like to cordially invite you to attend the third conference series, actively participate in its technical sessions, and contribute to the continued success of this conference.


One more bright point in this event is that the executive committee member meeting, Antennas Society, Chinese and Institute of Electronics, will be held in conjunction with the APCAP 2014, so lots of excellent experts in the antennas related areas from China mainland join this international conference.


All of you are warmly welcomed to Harbin for a visit. On behalf of the Organizing Committee of APCAP 2014, we look forward to seeing you in Harbin and to an exciting and enjoyable conference.
