Welcome to AMEREM 2014!

The AMEREM/EUROEM meetings have a rich history behind them. In 1978, the late Dr. Carl Baum organized the first Nuclear Electromagnetic Pulse Meeting or the NEM in Albuquerque, NM with support from his Summa Foundation.

This first meeting brought together scientists/engineers from the U.S. and Western Europe. At some point, the NEM was renamed as the High-Power Electromagnetics Meeting or HPEM. When this meeting was held in 1994 in Bordeaux, France, it was renamed EUROEM and subsequently, the meetings in North America have been called AMEREM. These meetings have been held in every even year since 1978.

With regards to Ultra-wideband/Short Pulse or UWB/SP, the first two meetings were held in Brooklyn Polytechnic, in New York. After these initial meetings Prof. Leo Felsen asked Carl Baum to include them in AMEREM/EUROEM and presentations in these meetings have been turned into full–length papers resulting in the publication of 10 books, titled Ultra-Wideband, Short Pulse Electromagnetics. In recent times, these books have been published by Springer.

We now welcome you to AMEREM-2014, back to where it all started, at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM, USA. We hope you will enjoy the technical program and enjoy your visit to the Land of Enchantment!
