Satellites and the Internet

Bologna, October 12-14, 2015

Increase the visibility of your Organization!
Become a Sponsor of the 2015 Conference!

The 21st Ka and Broadband Communications Conference  will be held in Bologna, Italy, on October 12-14, 2015 under the theme “Satellites and the Internet”.

This year the conference is focusing on the latest activities in all manners of satellite communications: broadcast, point to point, mobile, internet, data relay, inter-planetary, optical, and stored data downloading from sensing satellites, as indicated in the Call for Papers.
Emphasis will also be placed on the emerging activities at Q/V band, for which we will focus on the results of the communication experiments conducted on the Alphasat Q/V Experiment Package, along with the latest propagation results, thus adding to the data reported last year.

Bologna has been chosen as the site of the 21st Conference because it is the city that hosts the Fondazione Gugliemo Marconi.

The Conference will open with the Special Session “From Marconi to the Smart Phone” to commemorate the invention of radio and the progress made in the field of wireless communications since that seminal event. To complement the Session, we will visit Villa Griffone, the house in which Marconi grew up and conducted his early experiments.

The Conference will continue to document the many advances being made in the satellite field, as new technologies and applications continue to be developed in Communications, Navigation, Earth Observation, and Deep Space Exploration.

It is for this reason that we rely on the satellite industry and institutions for participation, paper presentations, and for financial support, which can take the form of a general sponsorship of USD 7,000.00, which entitles the sponsor to the following benefits:

  • Corporate logo and link on the Conference web site,
  • Corporate logo on the cover of the Conference Final Program,
  • Corporate logo on the cover of the Conference Book of Abstracts,
  • One full page color advertisement in the Book of Abstracts,
  • Corporate logo on the on-site signage,
  • Corporate logo projection between technical sessions,
  • Corporate logo projection during the opening and closing session,
  • Corporate logo displayed at the Registration Desk.

In addition to the above sponsorships, there are advertising opportunities to support Conference materials, specific activities and social events, such as:

  • Participant Bag,
  • Badge,
  • Badge lanyard,
  • Medallion,
  • Company brochures (literature) inserted in the Participant bag,
  • Conference Gala Dinner,

  • Luncheon,
  • Coffee Break

Exhibits, made up of 6-foot tabletops, are also available during the Conference. Space is limited and provided on a first come first served basis, along any other accommodations required to showcase your company and/or products.
The cost of the above opportunities will be agreed upon with the Conference Organization.

We hope that you find it possible to support the Conference and we would appreciate knowing of your intent to sponsor and advertise by January 31, 2015 such that your logo can be displayed as early as possible on the web site.
