As this week comes to a close, many in this field are preparing to return from the annual IEEE Microwave Theory & Techniques Society (MTT-S) symposium and exhibition, also known as the International Microwave Symposium (IMS). Even for those who didn't travel to the event, it is something of a "mid-year marker" for those tracking calendar-year fiscal records, and is usually a source of many leads for new business or at least for preparing proposals.

Recovering from visiting an MTT-S symposium and exhibition takes time and effort. While there are all those notes on the backs of business cards that must be answered, it is also important not to ignore all those on-going engineering projects not related to the MTT-S that were in the works before the start of the Atlanta event.

On the publicity side, it is similar, and it does take time to sort through all the information that comes back from such an event. For that reason, we ask for your patience in waiting to see coverage on your article, product, or news item from the MTT-S, and we will get to it in time.
