Two five-member round tables with discussion moderators
This special session will delve into a vigorous discussion on the current state of computational electromagnetics (CEM) research but also attempt to flesh-out potential research directions and opportunities in the area. We aim to foster a discussion on what new CEM capabilities are necessary to tackle emerging engineering or scientific applications and shed light on limitations of current state of art as we (as a society) grapple with increasingly rich electromagnetic environments.
We have invited a diverse group of world-renowned researchers, some of whom are CEM visionaries, accomplished EM developers, as well as leaders in cutting-edge and emerging engineering design disciplines that make use or will need advanced computational capabilities. The discussions will be organized into two round table, one before coffee break and one after that.
In addition to addressing questions posed by the moderators, the round tables will devote significant time in addressing questions from the audience.
