PhotonIcs & Electromagnetics Research Symposium
also known as Progress In Electromagnetics Research Symposium

We are speaking the same language, Maxwell's Equations.
--- In memory of Jin Au Kong

Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) provides an international forum for reporting progress and recent advances in the modern development of electromagnetic theory and its new and exciting applications since 1989. Topics include radiation, propagation, diffraction, scattering, guidance, resonance, power, energy and force issues, and all other modern developments, with spectra ranging from statics to RF, microwave, photonics, and beyond.

The Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) is sponsored by The Electromagnetics Academy. In the year 1989, the Academy co-sponsored the 1st Progress in Electromagnetics Research Symposium (PIERS) held in Boston, Massachusetts, 25-26 July. The Symposium was followed by an NSF workshop on future directions in electromagnetics research, also co-sponsored by the Academy. Subsequent PIERS have been held in various cities around the world, including Cambridge, Pasadena, Noordwijk, Seattle, Innsbruck, Hong Kong, Nante, Taipei, Osaka, Singapore, Honolulu, Pisa, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Prague, Beijing, and etc.
