Those wishing to present at CEM 2019 are required to submit a paper for consideration by the Conference’s Technical Programme Committee.

Papers should focus on new research in the broad field of computational electromagnetics including, techniques, applications, real business case studies/scenarios, innovative tools and techniques and report on work completed or nearing final stages, or efforts that have concluded with an important outcome of interest.

Commercial publications will be rejected. This includes papers that focus on details of a specific commercial tool. However, papers that use a commercial simulation tool but focus on an application or algorithmic advance are encouraged.
