FiWiN5G Winter School

Sunday 25th October, 2015,

The FIWIN5G Winter School on Microwave Photonics was held as a complementary event to the MWP2015 meeting and also the joint FIWIN5G-MWP Workshop (the following day). The aim of the FIWIN5G Winter School was to provide advanced tutorials (of 50 minute duration) from leading experts with a track record of plenary and invited talks. A particular emphasis was on the training of early stage researchers.
