Welcome Message from the Technical Program Chairs

NEMO (The IEEE Int. Conf. on Numerical Electromagnetic and Multiphysics Modeling and Optimization) has been founded by the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) as an annual focal event on computer-aided analysis and design. Its inaugural event was held last year (May 2014) in Pavia, Italy. This year, NEMO 2015 marks the first event in North America. The next conferences will then rotate between Asia, Europe and North America on an annual basis.

The NEMO 2015 organizing committee has developed a world-class technical program that will bring exciting discussions and explorations of novel and disruptive technologies for electromagnetic and multiphysics modeling, analysis, engineering design, as well as imaging and detection.

The conference starts with the Workshop on High-performance Chip, Package and Systems, followed by opening of our Technical Program on Tuesday afternoon with an exciting talk by Prof. Jianming Jin (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) and the only Special Session which honors the work and legacy of Dr. Gilles Delisle.

NEMO 2015 features a rich program of oral and poster technical sessions and an impressive Plenary Program that includes five talks by internationally renowned experts in electromagnetic modeling and optimization who are also distinguished leaders in the world of electromagnetic software commercialization. NEMO 2015 is also proud to have an industry exhibition accompanied by MicroApp presentations, where the exhibitors will highlight novel and unique capabilities of their software products.

An important component of NEMO 2015 is the Student Paper Competition. This year, we have 26 participants and the panel of judges will have a very difficult task of choosing the winners in this group of outstanding student researchers.

NEMO 2015 also features a Panel Session where distinguished speakers representing both industry and academia will discuss the present status and the future directions of multiphysics simulation, modeling and optimization.

Presented papers, both oral and poster presentations, are archival and will be included in the conference digest as well as the IEEE Digital Xplore.

Authors may also consider submitting expanded versions of their papers to the mini Special Issue of the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques dedicated to NEMO 2015 and INMMiC 2015 (The International Workshop on Integrated Nonlinear Microwave and Millimetre-wave Circuits, another MTT-S sponsored workshop held in Europe). The deadline for this submission is November 1, 2015.

Welcome to Canada! Enjoy the Conference and the beautiful city of Ottawa!
