1. Special Session on “Theory and Applications of Characteristic Modes” at the URSI Commission B International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory (EMTS 2019) in San Diego, USA, 27 – 31 May 2019 (Co-conveners: Deb Chatterjee and Ahmed M. Hassan).
2. Special Session on “Modeling and Design of Innovative Antennas” at the 9th IEEE-APS Topical Conference on Antennas and Propagation in Wireless Communications (APWC 2019) in Granada, Spain, 9 – 13 September 2019 (Convener: Zhi Ning Chen). The conference is coupled with International Conference on Electromagnetics in Advanced Applications (ICEAA 2019).
3. The Second Edition of the European School of Antenna (ESoA) Course on “Characteristic Modes: Theory and Applications” will be held in Prague, Czech Republic during 18-22 May 2020. The course is jointly organized by Czech Technical University in Prague, Universitat Politecnica de Valencia, Leibniz Universität Hannover and Lund University. The course website with detailed information is available here. The course pamphlet is found here. The first version of this course, held in Valencia, Spain, received a good review by the ESoA Board, but we will strive to do even better this time!
2019-05-15 We are proud to receive the news that our SIG member Associate Prof. Eva Antonino-Daviu of Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) has been awarded the prestigious 2019 IEEE AP-S Lot Shafai Mid-Career Award for her accomplishments on Characteristic Modes. The citation is: “For her contribution to the systematic design of antenna systems for practical applications using characteristic modes and promoting access of women to engineering.” Eva has made tremendous contributions to our SIG from the very beginning and we trust that the momentum generated by our joint efforts has led to many more people realizing the importance of the area. Bravo, Eva!
