On behalf of the International Scientific Committee and the Organising Committee we are very pleased to welcome all participants of the 8th Symposium on Applied Electromagnetics – SAEM'2022 which will be held on June 26-29 2022, in Struga, North Macedonia. Struga, the second city on the shores of the Lake Ohrid, is the place where the River Black Drim leaves the Ohrid Lake and flows to the Adriatic Sea. It is famous for the poetry evenings every year at the end of August, when poets from all over the world come to Struga to read their poetry and share thoughts with other poets.
Paving the history of SAEM conferences, we would like to remind you on the previous successful editions: SAEM'2006, Ohrid (Macedonia), SAEM'2008, Zamosc (Poland), SAEM'2010, Ptuj (Slovenia) and SAEM'2012, Sopron (Hungary),. Then SAEM'2014, Skopje (Macedonia), SAEM'2016, Wroclaw (Poland), SAEM'2018, Podčetrtek (Slovenia) and SAEM'2020, Beli Manastir (Croatia), unfortunately cancelled due to Covid-19 pandemic situation. With the development and growing of the symposium, the venue attracts more and more researchers. Indeed, our symposium has been always gathering people, not only from North Macedonia, Poland and Slovenia, but also from many other countries, for example Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Serbia, Finland, Hungary, Japan, Romania, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, etc.
SAEM'2022 is back where it started in 2006 on the banks of the Lake Ohrid, but now on its west side, in Struga.
SAEM'2022 is aimed at the presentation of research work results and/or the survey of works in various areas of applied electromagnetics. The Symposium is devoted to exchanging ideas, presenting achievements and results, providing the forum for researchers and academics. Open and friendly atmosphere, which our conferences are known for, encourages especially young researchers to present their achievements and ideas, even in an early stage of their research work. The venue also gives many opportunities for establishing professional links and to discuss collaboration areas for further international research projects and cooperation. We should like to ensure you that the Organizers will do their best to create and maintain friendly and warm atmosphere at the conference, both in scientific and social programme.
Thank you for your coming to Struga
. We wish you a lot of fruitful scientific debates during the Symposium and a pleasant stay in this nice place.
