EuCAP 2021 - 15th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation


22 - 26 March 2021




On behalf of the Conference Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to EuCAP 2021, Europe’s flagship conference on antennas and propagation, which will take place in Düsseldorf, Germany from 22 to 26 March 2021. The host country Germany has a strong antennas and propagation community both in academia and industry. Moreover, antennas and propagation play a central role in the current transition of Germany’s strong automotive industry towards digitally connected cars and autonomous driving. Düsseldorf is the capital of the Federal State of North Rhine-Westfalia. It is located at the heart of the Rhine-Ruhr area – the largest metropolitan area in Germany - hosting five universities of technology and ten universities of applied science active in antennas and propagation research within a radius of 100 km. The city is an emerging hub of entrepreneurial innovation and technology. Moreover, many cellular operators and telecommunications equipment vendors have large branches and even headquarters in Düsseldorf and the Rhine-Ruhr-Area, leading the development of 5G. EuCAP 2021 will be a unique place to strengthen the link between the scientific antennas and propagation community and the automotive as well as the 5G industry. Also, Düsseldorf is one of Germany’s secret tips: The city on the banks of the Rhine River is a mixture of contemporary and traditional “Rheinisches” way of life. The historic city has dozens of sights, stylish shopping districts, impressive modern art, and leafy parks. You will also discover the beer culture with its Altbier, the local brew considered among Germany’s best. I am very much looking forward to welcoming you to the vibrant city of Düsseldorf for EuCAP 202 Thomas Kürner, EuCAP 2021 General Chair
