Welcome to OIPE 2020

16th International Workshop on Optimization and Inverse Problems in Electromagnetism

Dear colleagues,

Due to the epidemiological situation of COVID-19, the International Steering Committee decided that the conference will be postponed to 2021. Consultations are currently ongoing to determine a specific date. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we believe that 2021 will be much more appropriate and safe for all participants.

Jens Haueisen (Chairman)
Marcin Ziolkowski, 16th Workshop Chairman

Over the last almost 30 years, the International Workshops on “Optimization and Inverse Problems in Electromagnetism” (OIPE) have gained a worldwide reputation. We are glad to announce that the 16th edition of the OIPE workshop series will be held on September 14 – 16, 2020, in Szczecin, Poland.

The aim of this workshop is to discuss recent developments in optimization and inverse methodologies and their applications to the design and operation of electromagnetic devices.
It is intended to establish an occasion when experts in electromagnetics and other areas (e.g. engineering, mathematics, physics), involved in research or industrial activities, can discuss on the theoretical aspects and on the technical relevance of optimization and inverse problems, in the general framework of the innovation in electromagnetic methods and applications. The conference program will consist of invited lectures, oral presentations and poster sessions.

The OIPE series was established in 1989 (Pavia, Italy) on the basis of the strategic importance of optimization and inverse problems in electromagnetic research. Among the guidelines of the OIPE philosophy a prominent role is given to the interdisciplinary. Researchers working in optimization and inverse problems in electromagnetism need quite complex and innovative mathematical tools. Therefore, the people who first established the OIPE workshops aimed for a deep, stable and interdisciplinary cooperation with other scientific communities. This initiative was continued and further developed through a series of biennial events held in Warsaw, Poland (1992), Geneva, Switzerland (1994), Brno, Czech Republic (1996), Jyvaskyla, Finland (1998), Torino, Italy (2000), Lodz, Poland (2002), Grenoble, France (2004), Sorrento, Italy (2006), Ilmenau, Germany (2008), Sofia, Bulgaria (2010), Ghent, Belgium (2012), Delft, Netherlands (2014), Rome, Italy (2016), until the most recent held in Innsbruck, Austria (2018).

The 16th edition is organized by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, West Pomeranian University of Technology, Szczecin, Poland.

We kindly invite you to participate to the workshop on September 14 – 16, 2020.
