Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the Seventeenth International Vacuum Electronics Conference (IVEC 2016) will be held on 19-21 April 2016 in Monterey, California. With technical co-sponsorship from the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS), the conference will provide a forum for scientists and engineers from around the globe to present the latest developments in vacuum electronics technology at frequencies ranging from the UHF to THz frequency bands.

IVEC was originally created in 2000 by merging the U.S. Power Tubes Conferences and the European Space Agency TWTA Workshops. Now a fully international conference, IVEC is held every other year in the U.S., and in Europe and Asia alternately every fourth year. After the successful and enjoyable meeting in Beijing, China in May, IVEC 2016 will return to its beautiful U.S. location in the city of Monterey.

This website is your best source of information about IVEC 2016, including Paper Submission, Registration, Accommodation, and other important dates and events. You can also can learn more about IVEC by visiting VacuumElectronics.org, the EDS Vacuum Electronics Technical Committee website. We will be updating these sites with new information over the next few months, so check back periodically to get the latest news.

We look forward to seeing you in Monterey!


The IVEC 2016 Committee
