As guest editor, it's my pleasure to welcome you to this issue of IEEE Microwave Magazine. This issue focuses on the 2022 International Microwave Symposium (IMS), which will be held in Denver in June. As I sit down to write this column, it is a wintry morning in Boulder, Colorado. With snow falling steadily outside my window, it is enticing to envision the warmer time in late spring or early summer when you will have this issue of the magazine in your hands or on your screen. In that spirit, I hope that this IMS-focused issue will help you look forward and envision your IMS 2022 experience so that you can make the most of your time at the conference. To that end, this issue includes a wide variety of columns about the technical program and related activities to help you plan for IMS 2022. In addition, the issue includes several feature articles that tie into the conference's location, themes, and technical program.
