Dear Prof. Wolf Luis Mochan Backal,
This is to cordially invite you to participate in the 33rd Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) to be held on March 25-28, 2013 in Taipei, Taiwan.
Should you be interested in organizing a Special Session in PIERS 2013 in Taipei, please fill out the survey form at
Some special sessions are calling for papers now,
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.
PIERS General Guideline for Authors and Session Organizers is available at,
Please kindly be aware that there is no financial support provided for our invitees. All participants are required to register for the conference.
The submission deadline of one-page abstract is October 20, 2012. On-Line-Submission via web page is strongly recommended.
Full-length paper is not required by PIERS. However, accepted and registered full-length papers will be included in PIERS Proceedings and online accessed after the conference.
Taipei invites you into a world of fascinating contrasts-a mix of the modern and traditional. The cultural kaleidoscope of Taiwan's capital city pulses wherever you go. Taipei has plenty of night markets serving up scrumptious evening snacks in an environment of excitement and fun. Whether you're just stopping over en route to another Asian destination, or planning a longer stay, Taipei is a many-faceted treasure that will call you back again and again.

Founded by Professor Jin Au Kong and sponsored by The Electromagnetics Academy, PIERS provides an international forum for reporting progress and recent advances in the modern development of electromagnetic theory and its new and exciting applications starting 1989. Induction to Membership in The Electromagnetics Academy is an honor in recognition of scholarly achievements and distinguished educational and professional services. The membership directory of the Academy is Who's Who in Electromagnetics. Active members are accorded the status FEMA (Fellow of the ElectroMagnetics Academy).
PIERS participant is strongly suggested to update the biography after login PIERS website. Scientists who have participated PIERS over 3 times will be annually evaluated.
Besides PIERS, The Electromagnetics Academy has a wide range of open access, on-line PIER series journals, publishing peer-reviewed original and comprehensive articles on all aspects of electromagnetic theory and applications.
