Marta and Yiannis, the joint Chairs of LAPC 2014 would like to invite you to participate in this successful series of two-day Antennas & Propagation conferences, now celebrating its 10 year anniversary. LAPC 2014 will be held at Burleigh Court Hotel at Loughborough University, UK on 10th - 11th November 2014. For those who have a little longer to spare, there will also be an informal welcome drinks reception on Sunday 9th and free day log EM simulation workshops on Wednesday 12h November. Registration for these workshops will open closer to the date.

If you have attended before you will be aware of the excellent 4 Star conference venue and the special single strand format of our conference.  Delegates staying at Burleigh Court Hotel will have access to discounted room rates.

All accepted papers will be presented through Poster Presentation, allowing time for detailed discussions.  The conference program runs sequentially which means there are no other oral presentations or events during all the poster sessions.  Posters must be A0 portrait format and printed in colour. We can offer an A0 poster printing service for £15.00 (including tax) so that you can avoid bring the poster with you. The poster electronic file must be sent to us well in advance of the conference.
