About Us

The Letters were founded in 2002 by Prof. Uslenghi at UIC. His vision was to establish a faster means for researchers in the antennas and propagation field to publish their results, while keeping very high standards for the journal. AWPL takes full advantage of the internet to accomplish this goal: papers, once accepted, are available for consultation soon thereafter in IEEE Xplore.
