xii) Conclusion by the local arrangement
(a) This scientific workshop is organized with the objective of gmigration of different research regions dedicated for radio systems h. Based on the objective, speakers for the MMW imaging, the next generation radio communication and the digital TV were invited for this workshop. The workshop was very successful with 79 attendees and very tight discussions for future radio techniques. As the objective, cross-functional discussions were done on several research regions (AP:Antenna and Propagation, MW:MicroWave,and RCS: Radio Communication Systems).
(b) For keeping the good direction of the discussion as in this scientific workshop, following criteria is agreed in the steering committee:
- Main topic/concept should be decided for each workshop,
- Based on the topic/concept, speakers are invited from the technical region of AP/MW/RCS.
