Fields and waves, Electromagnetic theory and applications


The interest of Commission B is fields and waves, encompassing theory, analysis, computation, experiments, validation and applications. Areas of emphasis are :

  • Time-domain and frequency-domain phenomena;
  • Scattering and diffraction;
  • General propagation including waves in specialised media;
  • Guided waves;
  • Antennas and radiation;
  • Inverse scattering and imaging.

The Commission fosters the creation, development, and refinement of analytical, numerical, and measurement techniques to understand these phenomena. It encourages innovation and seeks to apply interdisciplinary concepts and methods.

Commission Resolutions


URSI Commission B has organized the “URSI Commission B School for Young Scientists” since 2013 as follows:

  • 1st School at EMTS 2013, Hiroshima, Japan
  • 2nd School at GASS 2014, Beijing, China
  • 3rd School at AT-RASC 2015, Gran Canaria, Spain
  • 4th School at EMTS 2016, Espoo, Finland
  • 5th School at AT-RASC 2018, Gran Canaria, Spain
  • 6th School at EMTS 2019, San Diego, CA, USA

This School is a one-day event held on the occasions of the three major URSI meetings (GASS, AT-RASC, EMTS), and is sponsored by URSI Commission B. The School offers a short, intensive course, where a series of lectures are delivered by leading scientists in the Commission B community. Young scientists are encouraged to learn fundamentals and future directions in the area of electromagnetic theory from these lectures.


The following is a list of topics and instructors, together with the links to the Lecture Notes, at the past Schools:


The next School is planned to be organized on August 29, 2020 on the occasion of the following URSI Flagship Meeting: XXXIII URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium (GASS 2020)
