Special issue on Electromagnetic Fields in Electrical Engineering
The International Symposium on Electromagnetic Fields in Mechatronics, Electrical and Electronic Engineering (ISEF 2013) was held from 12–14 September 2013, in Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia.
Now in its 16th edition, the conference topics covered a wide spectrum of electromagnetic field problems and provided a unique opportunity, for scientists, researchers and engineers from all around the world, to discuss the state-of-the-art and new developments in computation, modelling, simulation, measurements and application of electromagnetic fields.
A particular emphasis was on the problems related to Bioelectromagnetism and Electromagnetic Hazards – a new strategic area of modern society. This issue of COMPEL contains a selection of papers presented at the Conference, following a peer review process.
