Yogyakarta, Indonesia, 24 – 27 July 2018

The Asia-Pacific Symposium on Applied Electromagnetics and Mechanics (APSAEM 2018) is the ninth symposium devoted to topics on electromagnetic phenomena, both low and high frequencies, and applications in electrical, mechanical, and communication systems. The purpose of the symposium is to exchange scientific results and to promote the friendship between the countries in AsiaPacific region. The first symposium was held at Adelaide, Australia in (2000), the symposium then moved to Kanazawa, Japan (2002), Auckland, New Zealand (2004), Sydney, Australia (2006), Bangkok, Thailand (2008), Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2010), Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2012), Taichung, Taiwan (2014), and Yogyakarta, Indonesia will be the host for the ninth symposium. The symposium is one in a series of events sponsored by the Japanese Society of Applied Electromagnetics and Mechanics. Topics will include the  following:

• Computational electromagnetics
• Inverse problems
• Characterization and modeling of electromagnetic materials
• Magnetic sensors and measurement
• Nondestructive testing
• Applications of electromagnetic phenomena
• Electromagnetic and electromechanical devices and systems
• Electromagnetic actuator and applications of permanent magnet
• Applications in power, electronics, and control systems
• Power electronics and drive systems.
• Electromagnetic environment and control
• Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)
• Applications of electromagnetic to medical treatments
• Micro waves and antennas, terahertz applications
• Applications in telecommunication
• Electromagnetics and electromechanical education
• Magnetic fluid
• Renewable energy
• Miscellaneous


Prospective authors are requested to submit a two-pages (A4 size) digest, which is a short form of the final paper, for peer reviewing. It is expected to be a condensation or summary which outlines the work to be reported and includes the results and conclusions. A template for the digest will be available at the conference website, and to be planned indexing by IEEE Xplore. The full paper will be peer reviewed for publication in a special issue of Journal of the Japan Society of Applied Electromagnetics and Mechanics. To be eligible for digest book and journal publication, at least one author should register to present the paper. The format for the full paper will be available on the conference website soon. The peer reviewing of the both digest and full paper will be organized by the Technical Program Committee.


15 April, 2018 : Deadline of a two-pages (A4 size) digest submission
31 May, 2018 : Digest acceptance notification
24 June, 2018 : Early bird registration deadline
