The International Symposium on Electromagnetic Theory (EMTS 2023) was held from 23-26 May 2023 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It was the twenty-fifth EMTS to be held since the first one was organized in Montreal by Prof. George Sinclair in 1953.
Organized by Commission B (Fields and Waves) of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI), EMTS 2023 was sponsored by the Canadian National Committee of URSI (CNC-URSI) and technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society.
The conference offered plenary talks by distinguished speakers, regular oral and poster sessions, a one-day summer school (Tue, May 23), technical tours, and a number of Young Scientist Awards that cover the registration fee and accommodation during the conference. Business meetings, receptions, and a conference banquet were also held.
