General Profile:

This year's Seminar will be organized as a satellite event to HES-13, the International Conference on Heating by Electromagnetic Sources.

The conference and the Seminar will be held at the Centro Congressi Padova "A. Luciani" in Padua, Italy.

Seminar Topics:

Computer modeling and simulation are increasingly important for development of new applications and technologies of microwave power engineering. To be accurate and adequate, the models have to mimic not only electromagnetic processes in the system, but also other physical phenomena involved - such as heat transfer, mass transfer, evaporation, phase change, etc.

This interdisciplinary forum brings together engineers, researchers and students involved in different areas of microwave power engineering and engaged with the development and the use of suitable numerical techniques, computational schemes, modeling/optimization procedures, etc. The seminar program includes contributions from both academia and industry that exemplify advantages and benefits of computer models for simulation, exploration, and CAD of microwave applicators.

Technical Topics:

Aiming to illuminate the modern trends in evolution of computational technologies applicable to a variety of scenarios in microwave power engineering, contributions to the topics including (but not limited to) the following are invited:
