Biomedical and 5G

In the afternoon we are pleased to present three more eminent speakers from around the globe:

5G mmWave Channel Model Alliance Advancements

Camillo Gentile and Jeanne T. Quimby, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

Antennas for Next Generation Medical Implants

Cynthia Furse, UTAH University

The Antennas and Propagation Conference (APC) is an annual event dedicated to the fields of Antennas and Propagation. The conference supports our proactive and diverse A&P community within the UK and abroad, attracting delegates from academia, industry, research institutes and government bodies.

The event this year is run by the IET’s Antennas and Propagation Technical Network and due to restrictions imposed by social distancing, the conference will be held virtually. To support flexible working arrangements, the conference will be run over a shorter duration with a reduced but topical programme. We have several international speakers presenting their research as a series of invited talks followed by Q&A sessions.

We are also delighted to collaborate with URSI (International Union of Radio Science) to provide the community with high quality antennas and propagation events spread over two consecutive days. URSI have an exciting programme of young researchers scheduled.

As part of APC 2020 Online we have two sessions, focussing on different topics. You have the option of registering for free for both or one of the sessions by ticking the relevant boxes


  • To hear about the latest international research in the areas of free space optics, meta-surfaces for 5G and biomedical applications.  
  • To identify potential collaboration opportunities within the wider A&P community
  • To challenge latest thinking and offer alternate ideas and solutions
  • To support knowledge transfer between academia and industry to promote greater understanding of industry needs and academic capability.


Cynthia Furse

UTAH University

Cynthia M. Furse (M’85–SM’99–F’08) is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Utah. Dr. Furse received her B.S. in electrical engineering with a mathematics minor in 1985, M.S. degree in electrical engineering in 1988, and her Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Utah in 1994.

She has applied her expertise in electromagnetics to sensing and communication in complex lossy scattering media such as the human body, geophysical prospecting, ionospheric plasma, and aircraft wiring networks. She has taught electromagnetics, wireless communication, computational electromagnetics, microwave engineering, antenna design, and introductory electrical engineering and has been a leader in the development of the flipped classroom.

Dr. Furse is a Fellow of the IEEE and the National Academy of Inventors. She is a past AdCom member for the IEEE AP society and past chair of the IEEE AP Education Committee. She has received numerous teaching and research awards including the 2020 IEEE Chen To Tai Distinguished Educator Award. She is a founder of LiveWire Innovation, Inc., a spin-off company commercializing devices to locate intermittent faults on live wires.
