Since its first edition in Laredo (Cantabria), in July 2000, the Iberian Meeting on Computational Electromagnetics (Encuentro/Encontro Ibérico de Electromagnetismo Computacional) was held with great success on thirteen occasions: Aracena (Huelva, 2001), Sedano (Burgos, 2003), Seia (Guarda, 2005), Aiguablava (Girona, 2007), Chiclana de la Frontera (Cádiz, 2008), Monfragüe (Cáceres, 2010), Sesimbra (Portugal, 2011), Denia (Alicante, 2013), Baeza (Jaén, 2015), Las Caldas (Oviedo, 2016), Coímbra (2018) and Potes (2019). In this fourteenth edition, the meeting goes to the Catalonian Pyrenees and it will be organized by the Remote Sensing, Antennas, Microwaves and Superconductivity Group (CommSensLab) of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) at Vall de Núria (Girona).
EIEC meetings allow the exchange of knowledge between members of Portuguese and Spanish research groups working on computational electromagnetics applications in the various branches of Electrical Engineering by providing a highly specialized environment. These contacts contribute to forging closer ties in a community whose activity could be diluted in forums with a broader scope, favoring the establishment of partnerships that eventually lead to the development of joint projects.
Traditionally, EIEC tries to promote dialogue and the sharing of ideas among participants outside the program sessions. For this, all the editions have been held in small towns and picturesque villages, avoiding the dispersion of the participants and encouraging them to group together in lunches, dinners and social life. For this reason, the Hotel Vall de Núria on Queralbs (Girona) has been chosen as the venue for the XIV edition
The meeting favors the introduction of longer speeches, as opposed to a conference or symposium, allowing the groups to present the research lines they are currently working on and the most relevant results and state of the art in the various fields covering the scope of the meeting.
The meeting covers the following topics:
Integral Equation Methods in time or frequency domains
Differential Equation Methods in time or frequency domains
Fast and Efficient Methods
Hybrid Modeling and Multi-Physics
EM Modeling of Complex Media and EBG
Plasmonics and Metamaterials
Frequency Selective Surfaces and reflectarrays
Inverse Scattering and Imaging Techniques
Optimization Techniques for EM-based Design
Asymptotic and High Frequency Techniques
Electromagnetic Compatibility / Electromagnetic Interference (EMC/EMI)
Electromagnetic Simulation in Advanced Applications
