CONFERENCE CHAIR

Dr. J. P. Yao – University of Ottawa, Canada
Purpose

The International Conference on Antennas, Radar, and Wave Propagation (ARP 2007) will be a major forum for international researchers and professionals to present their latest research, results, and ideas in all areas of antennas, radar, and wave propagation. ARP 2007 aims to strengthen relations between industry, research laboratories, and universities.

ARP 2007 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conference on:
Control and Applications (CA 2007)
Modelling and Simulation (MS 2007)
Wireless and Optical Communications (WOC 2007)

LOCATION

Montreal, Quebec is the world's second largest French speaking city. Home to over 2 million people, this dynamic and exciting metropolis has quickly gained a reputation as one of the most desirable places to live, work, and play in the entire world. Visitors will be delighted by the city's European charm and character, with unique sidewalk cafés, and boutiques lining many of Montreal's famed tourist destinations like St. Laurent Boulevard and Rue St. Denis. Besides shopping, this growing city is also well known for its extraordinary culinary delights, and across all of North America, only New York City has more restaurants per capita than Montreal! There are the local treats, Poutine (French Fries, Gravy and Cheese Curds) and the famous Montreal bagels, and Montreal also offers a variety of unique international restaurants that represent the city's ever changing population. This unique international culture also makes Montreal a diverse hub for Quebecois and Canadian art, music, and literature. With several major galleries and museums to choose from (Musée des Beaux Arts, Musée d'art Contemporain de Montreal), almost endless supply of live music venues, and a summer filled with fun and interesting festivals, sometimes the hardest thing to do in Montreal is find the time to sit and relax!
