Chairs’ Message

The IEEE International Workshop on Electromagnetics 2022 (iWEM2022): Applications and Student Innovation Competition will be held at Chiba Institute of Technology, Chiba, Japan, on August 29-31, 2022. The iWEM2022 is the 13th workshop in its series and mainly focused on innovation competition for young scholars and students in the field of electromagnetic theory, antennas including terahertz frequency, wireless communications, and related applications/topics such as wireless power transmission, metamaterial devices and so forth. Wide research topics relating to electromagnetics are welcome. Fusions of ideas in a variety of topics will often bring original inventions that can be never emerged from the limited topics. Several interactive sessions will be planned for students to present their accomplishments, and exchange their ideas among young scholars and participants.

In addition, plenary, invited talks with leading researchers and several oral sessions for emerging topics will be organized during the workshop. It is our pleasure that we can provide a valuable platform for young researchers to stimulate their ideas and encourage their further progress throughout the sessions. This conference is organized and sponsored by IEEE AP-S Tokyo Chapter, and cooperatively sponsored by IEEE AP-S Fukuoka/Nagoya/Kansai Chapters, IEEE Tokyo Section, and IEICE Communications Society.

In addition to the workshop, please enjoy your staying in Chiba. Chiba, the sixth largest prefecture in Japan with a population of 6.2 million, is located in the east of the Tokyo metropolitan area and has good transportation from major cities in Japan and in the world. It is a city with strong cultural, historical and industrial identity.

We believe that the situation of COVID-19 is getting better, we are hoping to welcome all participants in this workshop to Chiba. However, it depends on the entry policy of Japanese Government. In case you are unfortunately unable to come to Chiba, the organizing committee is also discussing ways to make your participation online as meaningful as possible. We hope many AP members will join this workshop.

We are looking forward to your participation in iWEM2022.
