Special Sessions

Requests to organize special sessions should be submitted to hxin@email.arizona.edu no later than October 9, 2015. Each proposal should include the title of the special session, a brief description of the topic, and justification for its designation as a special session. All proposals should be submitted in PDF format. Special sessions will be selected and finalized by the end of November 2015. At that time, additional instructions will be provided to the organizers of the special sessions chosen for inclusion in the symposium and/or the meeting. The associated papers or abstracts will be due January 18, 2016. A list of special sessions will be posted on the symposium website in December 2015.

Special Sessions at the 2016 meeting will include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in Non-Diffractive Waves
  • Multiscale Multiphysics Computational Techniques and Applications
  • Grand Challenges in Computational Electromagnetics
  • More than Wearables - Pprogress on Skin Antennas and Sensors
  • Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology
  • Industrial Applications of Metamaterials
  • Terahertz Antennas, Systems, and Interconnects
  • Novel Paradigms, Challenges, Perspectives in Wave Scatter & Propagat
  • Directive Antennas at THz and Optical Frequencies
  • Memorial Session for Prof Paul E Mayes
  • Computational Imaging at Microwave, MMW, and THz Frequencies
  • 4D Arrays as Enabling Technology for Future Wireless Systems
  • Antenna Design/Analysis Based on Stored Energy & Charact Modes
  • History AP-S: Significant Achievements in Antenna Design, Analysis, and Education
