Dear Colleagues,

 

On behalf of the Asian Electromagnetics Conference (ASIAEM) 2019 Organizing Committee, we would like to express our cordial welcome to your participation of the ASIAEM 2019, which is to be held in Xi’an, China, from 15th to 20th September 2019.

 

The AMEREM/EUROEM meetings have a rich history behind them. In 1978, Dr. Carl Baum organized the first Nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse Meeting (or the NEM ) in Albuquerque, NM. When this meeting was held in 1994 in Bordeaux, France, it was renamed the EUROEM and subsequently, the meetings held in North America have been called the AMEREM. These meetings have been held in every even year since 1978.

 

The ASIAEM 2019 is the third Asian Electromagnetics Conference. Considering the fact that the research activities in Asia are flourishing in recent years, especially in countries like China, India, Korea and Singapore, we held the first Asian Electromagnetics Conference in 2015 in Jeju, South Korea. The ASIAEM 2017 was held in India. And the ASIAEM is to be held in every odd year.

 

The ASIAEM 2019 will continue the AMEREM/EUROEM tradition to bring together the 25th High-Power Electromagnetics Conference (HPEM 25), the 18th Ultra-Wideband, Short-Pulse Electromagnetics Conference (UWB SP 18) and the 18th Unexploded Ordnance Detection and Range Remediation Conference (UXO 18).

 

Meanwhile, there will be something new about the ASIAEM. More organizers and chairs from Asian countries will be included in the committees and we will set up Best Paper Award, Best Student Paper Award and Outstanding Young Scientist Award to encourage young researchers and students to make greater contributions in this field. In addition, the ASIAEM 2019 will add six new technical committees. They are, namely, EM Transients in UHV/EHV Transmission Lines & Substations, Statistical Methods in HPEM, Meta Materials for High-Power Applications, Design of Protective Devices and Test Methods, Evaluation of HEMP/IEMI Impacts on Critical Infrastructures, and Standards for HPEM Protection, which makes the total number of technical committees 18.

 

The ASIAEM will also be interdisciplinary, and researchers from fields such as Electromagnetic theory, Pulsed power technology, EMP/UWB/UXO/HPM, Lightning, Antenna technology as well as biological and medical applications are all welcome. In doing so, we hope to promote the exchange of academic research results, presentation of progress and discussion of ideas and challenges in the field of High Power Electromagnetics.

 

Also, as the capital city for 13 ancient dynasties in about 1200 years, Xi’an records the great changes of China just like a living history book. Called Chang'an (meaning the eternal peaceful city) in ancient times, it is one of the birthplaces of the ancient Chinese civilization in the Yellow River Basin area. Travelers from all over the world marvel at the numerous historical sites and cultural relics in the city. But Xi’an is also a modern city. As a key city on the ancient silk road, it is always regarded as the cultural, industrial and educational center of northwest China and is still undergoing fast development. So we would like to invite you to participate in the ASIAEM 2019 in Xian and we deeply believe that you will find it a technically fruitful trip and enjoy a nice working vacation here.
