The special session on Advances in Computational Methods in Electromagnetics, Antenna Design, and Applications provides an international forum for reporting progress and recent advances in computational techniques and simulation tools used in electromagnetics and antenna design and Applications. 

ACME Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to the following areas:
  • Numerical Methods (MoM, FDTD, FEM, TLM, etc.)
  • Fast and Efficient Computational Methods in Electromagnetics
  • Hybrid Methods
  • Optimization Techniques
  • Modeling of Complex Mediums
  • Modeling of Electrically-large Structures
  • Inverse Scattering and Imaging Techniques
  • EM Simulation Tools
  • High-performance Computing in EM
  • Parallel and GPU Computing for EM
  • Printed and Conformal Antennas
  • Aperture Antennas
  • Multi-band and Wide-band Antennas
  • Antenna Arrays and Smart Antennas
  • Dielectric Resonator Antennas
  • Reconfigurable Antennas
  • Miniaturization of Antennas
  • Embedded Antennas
  • MEMS/Nano Technology for Antennas
  • EMC/EMI Applications
  • Radars and Remote Sensing
  • Millimeter-wave and Terahertz Antennas
  • RF and Microwave Circuits

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research papers on the above and other topics related to Computational Electromagnetics and Antenna Technology.  Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere.  Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and authors email addresses.  Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words.  The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format.  Additional pages will be charged at additional fee.  Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to http://hpcs2014.cisedu.info/home/posters  for the posters submission details) will also be accepted for submission.  In case of multiple authors, an indication of which author(s) is responsible for correspondence must be indicated.   Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Special Session organizers at  husseini@ieee.org and kabalan@aub.edu.lb .    Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. 

Only PDF files will be accepted, submitted as email attachments to the track organizers.  Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews.  Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, contributions, technical clarity and presentation.  Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted.  Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the special session. 

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings.  Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2014 web site.  It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference.  The proceedings is to be published as ISBN proceedings by the IEEE and will be available online through IEEE Digital Library and indexed by major indexing services accordingly (e.g., EI indexing). 

If you have any questions about paper submission or the special session, please contact the Special Session organizers.
