The twentieth Nordic Conference on Radio Science and Communications
June 9-11, 2008. International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in Physics, Engineering and Cognitive Sciences. School of Mathematics and Systems Engineering, Växjö University, Sweden
The Swedish National Committee of URSI (Svenska Nationalkommittén för RadioVetenskap, SNRV) and the International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in Physics, Engineering and Cognitive Sciences at Växjö University, invite all interested to the co-organized conferences RVK08 and MMWP08 to be held in Växjö, Sweden starting June 9th 2008.
RVK08 is the twentieth Nordic Conference on Radio Science and Communications (RadioVetenskap och Kommunikation). The first RVK conference was held in Stockholm 1949, and the latest nineteenth was in Linköping 2005. RVK is the largest recurrent conference in Radio Science and Communications within the Nordic countries. The conference is a meeting place for everyone interested in this field, with the aim of strengthening the interaction between universities, industry and society. The scientific program will give an overview of modern radio science and communications as well as an insight into new research and progress in these fields. Except for the scientific presentations, the conference will also cover thematic invited talks on the topics of ”Excellence Centers” and ”Top-technology” in radio science and communications, as well as a few distinguished key-note speakers who will talk on special subjects. An exhibiton will also be arranged where companies and other interested parties will have an oppurtunity to exhibit and initiate contacts with new customers and co-workers.
The scope of the conference is very broad and covers everything between antenna and earth in the field of radio science and communications. Contributions are welcome in the traditional RVK areas as well as in new appearing research fields. See areas of interest for further information about suitable subjects.
MMWP08 is the third International Conference on Mathematical Modelling of Wave Phenomena. The MMWP conferences present unifying ideas of wave modelling from different disciplines treating fundamentals as well as applications. Both mechanical and electromagnetic waves together with related signal analysis would be considered, including comparisons with quantum waves.
Now, the RVK and MMWP conferences are co-organized for the first time providing new opportunities for the exchange of ideas. During the first three days, June 9th to 11th 2008, Radio Science and Communications together with related material on Mathematical Modelling of Wave Phenomena are considered promoting joint sessions. The last two days, June 12th to 13th 2008, are devoted to seismic, acoustic and quantum applications together with related material from numerical analysis, mathematical physics, mathematical modelling and scientific computing.
The co-organized conference will be treated as far as possible as one conference with a joint schedule of talks and one system of registration etc providing the possibility for participants to choose the most interesting talks during the entire conference week.
The official language for the conference is English, and all papers, posters, over-head and presentation material should be in English. However, the oral presentations may be given in any Scandinavian language if preferred (to be notified at the registration).
The conference proceedings for MMWP08/RVK08 are now in press. Details for the publications are seen in the example below; specific page numbers are found in the content.
