iWEM started in Taipei in 2010 for the first time as “International Conference on Applications of Electromagnetism and Student Innovation Awards” (2010 ICAE/SIA), and it then continued but renamed in Taipei in 2011 as “IEEE International Workshop on Electromagnetics: Applications and Student Innovation Competition” (2011 IEEE iWEM). Supported by IEEE, this workshop series will be held in rotation in Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, and Japan. Different from other recognized conferences and/or workshops, this workshop series focuses more on student innovation competition and runs in a single session format. It provides not only an international platform for scientists and engineers to exchange their ideas, but also a good venue for young scholars and students to demonstrate their innovative results (which may lead to awards).

IEEE iWEM2022 is organized by the IEEE AP-S Tokyo Chapter, and technically co-sponsored by IEEE AP-S Fukuoka/Nagoya/Kansai Chapters, IEEE Tokyo Section, and IEICE Communications Society. The venue of the workshop is Chiba Institute of Technology, Chiba, Japan. Chiba is one of the most historical and industrial cities in Japan. All accepted papers will be included in IEEE Xplore.
