The Italian Workshop on Finite Element Method as Applied to Electrical and Information Engineering is established since 2001 with the aim to present the latest developments in the FEM applications to electrical and electronics engineering, to bring together industry and university people to share experiences, to keep in touch people working on low-frequency applications with those working on high-frequency applications, and to be brought up to date on current FEM research and future related activities.
The first edition of the Italian Workshop was held in Cassino, Italy, April 19-20, 2001, (COMPEL, Vol. 21 No. 3, pp. 472-93, 2002) and the second one in Genoa, Italy, June 3-4, 2004, (Atti della Fondazione Ronchi, Vol. 60 No. 1/2, pp. 317-94, January-April 2005).
The third edition of the workshop was held at Rome, Italy, in December 14, 2007, and it has been organized by the “Roma Tre” University and the University of L’Aquila, with the Technical Cosponsorship by Centro Interuniversitario MECSA, Gruppo Elettronica, Gruppo Nazionale dei Ricercatori di Elettrotecnica, IEEE-Italy Section, Società Italiana di Elettromagnetismo, and Sezione di Roma dell’AEIT.
The Scientific Committee members were:
S. Caorsi (University of Pavia).
M. Feliziani (University of LAquila), Co-chairman.
G. Ghione (Politecnico di Torino).
G. Molinari (University of Genoa).
G. Pelosi (University of Firenze).
G. Rubinacci (University of Neaple “Federico II”).
L. Vegni (University “Roma Tre”), Co-chairman.
The Local Organizer Committee members were:
A. Salvini (University “Roma Tre”).
A. Toscano (University “Roma Tre”).
The main aim of this Special Section is to present some results of the Italian research in the finite element method by a selection of peer reviewed papers which have been presented in the third edition of the workshop. In particular, the special section includes 13 papers on FEM modeling for different application fields: biological effects, electrostimulation for bone rebuilding, education, skin effect, film bulk acoustic resonator (FBAR), semiconductor devices, photonic crystal fibers, electronic band gap, meta-materials, waveguide filters, traveling wave tubes electronic gun, mesh optimization by the evolutionary bacterial chemotaxis algorithm.
As Guest Editors of this Special Section of COMPEL, we are very grateful to all the authors who submitted their valuable papers, and all the reviewers who made a commendable work for providing the high-scientific level of the selected technical papers.
