Progress in Electromagnetics Research
Symposium (PIERS) provides an international forum for reporting progress
and recent advances in the modern development of electromagnetic theory and
its new and exciting applications since 1989. Topics include radiation, propagation,
diffraction, scattering, guidance, resonance, power, energy and force issues,
and all other modern developments, with spectra ranging from statics to RF,
microwave, photonics, and beyond.
The Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium
(PIERS) is sponsored by The Electromagnetics Academy. In the year 1989, the
Academy co-sponsored the 1st Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium
(PIERS) held in Boston, Massachusetts, 25-26 July. The Symposium was followed
by an NSF workshop on future directions in electromagnetics research, also co-sponsored
by the Academy. Subsequent PIERS have been held in various cities around the
world, including Cambridge, Pasadena, Noordwijk, Seattle, Innsbruck, Hong Kong,
Nante, Taipei, Osaka, Singapore, Honolulu, Pisa, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Prague,
Beijing, and etc.
