Significant opportunities will be provided to students during the IMS2011 to participate in the conference through the design competitions. These com petitions provide students with a chance to exercise their design skills and see how they perform against other students from around the world. The competitions at the 2011 will take the form of seven hardware design competitions. One or more of the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society's Technical Committees sponsors and judges each competition. Several companies will get involved with supporting the competitions by providing test equipment as well as components and software for the student teams. The hardware competitions are anchored by the power amplifier design competition that has been held at the IMS from 2005. The other hardware competitions include an ASH receiver design, a low-noise amplifier design, and a packaged triplexer design.

The conference program for IMS2011 will include the presentation of eight Focus and five Special Sessions. The Focus Sessions will be technical in nature covering a diverse range of topic areas that need to be of great interest to many members of the microwave community. The Special Sessions are commemorative and historical in nature in comparison with the technical focus of the Focus Sessions. Three of these sessions are dedicated to commemorating the lives and achievements of Roger Sudbury, Nathan Marcuvitz, and Ted Saad who made invaluable contributions to the field of microwave engineering and the IEEE. One of the Focus Session will feature four speakers from the leading tuner manufacturers who will present their perspective of the tuner market and requirements, along with their product capabilities.

IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium (IMS), 2011 was hosted in Baltimore providing all attendees with an innovative technical program, an exhibition, business opportunities, and an entertaining social program. The IMS Technical Program focused on the theme, 'Microwaves for the World.' The presentations covered during the conference were on 'Microwaves Around the World' to help showcase the emergence of world-class research in countries that traditionally haven't been well represented at the IMS. A significant change in the paper submission and review process was introduced by introducing double-blind review for all contributed technical papers. The technical program and the exhibits were the business portion of Microwave Week and there were many other activities also, which included very successful Women in Microwave (WIM), GOLD, and Ham Radio receptions.
