The Registration process is now split into three tiers in order to better serve membership needs. The 1st tier is the Early Bird Registration period. It begins Tuesday, February 1 and will last through Friday, May 20. This period provides an opportunity to register for the Symposium at the lowest possible cost. Immediately following the Early Bird period is the 2nd tier or Advance Registration period. It extends from Saturday May 21 through Friday, June 3, just prior to the start of Microwave Week. The 3rd and final tier is the On-site Registration period that will remain the same as in past Symposia, starting on Saturday June 4, the first day of Microwave Week, and ending on Friday, June 10.
