To briefly describe it, EuCAP (European Conference on Antennas and Propagation) congress is the European equivalent of the American APS-URSI symposium (IEEE International Symposium on Antennas and Propagation and CNC/USNC/URSI Radio Science Meeting).
However, to advance you the main highlights you have the main topics and subtopics treated in the conference in the "call for papers" of the 2010 edition attached.
This year it has reached its 5th edition, held in Rome last week. I attended last EuCap (2010) which was held in Barcelona. I found it very well organized, with an enthusiastic atmosphere although the weather was not as good as promising considering it was held in Spain :-D. I had the opportunity of attending to the sessions of some of the most important researchers (Mittra, Wiesbeck, or even Balanis!). Also, there was a huge number of exhibitors (Ansoft, EADS, etc). If anyone has the opportunity of attending next year, I totally recommend it!
If you have access to the ieeexplore data base, the proceedings of EuCAP 2010 are available to look for abstracts of your interest.
Yes, EuCAP in Barcelona was very interesting indeed. There was no mad dash to get to the presentation rooms like most APS events. Enjoyed the "clasico" lectures by Mittra, Wiesbeck and Balanis .
Personally (not everyone may agree) - in addition to the "clasico", it would be great to see highlights or exhibits of how the previous conferences has contributed to new technologies. Perhaps something similar to the Mobile world congress where some of the newest gadgets are on show - some of the killer apps arose from ideals mentioned in previous conferences.
