The Seventeenth Biennial IEEE Conference on Electromagnetic Field Computation 

CEFC 2016 will be held in Miami, Florida USA, November 13-16, 2106. The official conference website will be used for all conference activities including digest submission and review, registration and accommodation. The conference venue is the Hilton Miami-Downtown.  

It is our great pleasure to announce the Seventeenth Biennial IEEE Conference on Electromagnetic Field Computation (CEFC 2016), which is cosponsored by IEEE Magnetics Society and IEEE Miami Section. We welcome you to participate in one of the most important biennial scientific and technical events. The aims of the IEEE CEFC are to present the latest developments in modeling and simulation methodologies for the analysis of electromagnetic fields and wave interactions, with the application emphasis being on the computer-aided design of low and high frequency devices, components and systems. Scientists and engineers worldwide are invited to submit original contributions in the areas of Static and Quasi-static Fields, Wave Propagation, Material Modeling, Coupled Problems, Numerical Techniques, Optimization and Design, Software Methodology, Nanomagnetics, Nanophotonics, Bioelectric Field Computation as well as Devices and Applications.  

The authors are encouraged to submit: A One-page Digest due by April 22, 2016. On-line submission is required and facilities are provided on the web site, The digest should be submitted with the corresponding author’s information including full mailing address and e-mail address. The conference will feature oral and poster presentations. Authors interested in submitting their papers for review for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Magnetics are asked to submit their manuscripts in final form via the website and also bring a copy at the conference. All contributed papers will undergo peer review to determine their suitability for publication.   

Exhibition Exhibits of commercial products related to the conference topics will be held concurrently. We are expecting a good number of vendors and conference registrants.
