What is AES?

AES®, The International Conference on Antennas and Electromagnetic Systems (SCOPUS Indexed) serves as an international multidisciplinary forum for deliberations on recent advances and developments in all aspects of Antennas, Electromagnetics, Propagation, and Measurements. Of special interest are:

  • Antenna theory and design;
  • Active, adaptive and reconfigurable antennas;
  • Array antennas;
  • Broadband and multi-band antennas;
  • Antennas for wireless power transmission and harvesting;
  • Millimeter/Terahertz and nano-optical antennas;
  • MIMO, antenna diversity, smart and signal processing antennas;
  • Electromagnetic theory;
  • Computational and numerical techniques;
  • Optimization techniques;
  • Nonlinear electromagnetics;
  • Metamaterials, metasurfaces, FSS and EBG;
  • Photonics and plasmonics;
  • Quantum optics;
  • Propagation theory;
  • 5G propagation;
  • Propagation and remote sensing in complex and random media;
  • Millimeter/terahertz and UWB propagation;
  • Propagation in biological tissues;
  • Antenna and propagation measurement techniques;
  • Material characterization and non-destructive testing;
  • EMI/EMC/PIM chambers, instrumentation, and measurements;

Additionally, through its unique from-Conference-to-Journal-Publication concept, AES offers a rare opportunity for authors to submit papers to Advanced Electromagnetic (AEM) journal and then be considered for journal publication.

The conference program typically features an excursion program and a banquet.
Following a now well-established tradition AES takes place in unique locations around the world.
