IEEE Antennas & Propagation Society
Before the merger of AIEE and IRE in 1963, the predecessor of the IEEE Antennas & Propagation Society (AP-S) was the IRE Professional Group on Antennas and Propagation (PGAP), formed in 1949.
Field of Interest
The society’s field of interest is defined on its homepage as “antennas, including analysis, design, development, measurement, and testing; radiation, radio propagation, and the interaction of electromagnetic waves with discrete and continuous media; and applications and systems pertinent to antennas, propagation, and sensing, such as applied optics, millimeter- and sub-millimeter-wave techniques, antenna signal processing and control, radio astronomy, and propagation and radiation aspects of terrestrial and space-based communication, including wireless, mobile, satellite, and telecommunications".
The IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society publishes three notable academic publications, including:
- IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation
- IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters 
- IEEE Antennas & Propagation Magazine
AP-S sponsors a number of conferences around the world that focus on its field of interest.
