PIERS2019 Rome Focus/Special Sessions  
SC1&SC4: Progress in Broadband and UWB Printed and Dielectric Antennas for Wireless Applications 1
Organized by Prof. Renato Cicchetti (Sapienza University of Rome) and Dr. Antonio Faraone (Motorola Solutions, Inc.)
Session's Information:
Modern wireless handsets frequently incorporate several antennas to enable cellular voice, video and data, plus Wi-Fi and GPS connectivity, across multiple bands. In this context, wideband and multi-port antennas are receiving significant interest from designers and researchers. At the same time, ultra-wideband (UWB) systems used in short-range communications, remote sensing and through-the-wall radar imaging, have introduced a new paradigm in the antenna design where the mitigation of pulse distortion represents an essential requirement influencing antenna design and stimulating the introduction of novel compact radiating systems, frequently comprising printed and dielectric resonator antennas (DRA). Furthermore, the introduction of mm-wave 5G communications systems is fostering the widespread implementation of smart antennas, featuring adaptive beamforming capabilities, in mobile terminals and base station access points. As a consequence of these trends, the degree of complexity and difficulty in the design and implementation of wireless device antenna systems has grown dramatically, requiring ever more innovative solutions.
This special session is intended to reflect current R&D trends and novel approaches in the analysis and design of antenna systems for the next generation of mobile communication devices including 5G, applicable to various device form factors such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and wearable computers as well as for UWB communication systems and radars. Prospective authors are invited to submit their original research contributions dealing with advances in antenna technologies, product integration, and performance optimization, as well as the related modeling technique. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
• Numerical and analytical techniques for antenna modeling and design
• Wideband and UWB, DRA and printed antennas
• Tunable antennas and corresponding enabling devices
• Reconfigurable and smart antennas
• Wearable/flexible antennas
• MIMO antenna systems
