Angelo Freni

He received the Laurea (Doctors) degree in electronics engineering from the University of Florence, Florence, Italy, in 1987. Since 1990, he has been with the Department of Electronic Engineering, University of Florence, first as an Assistant Professor and, since 2002, as an Associate Professor of electromagnetism. From 1995 to 1999, he was an Adjunct Professor with the University of Pisa, Pisa, Italy, and since 2010, he has been a Visiting Professor with the TU Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands. In 1994, he was involved in research with the Engineering Department, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, U.K., concerning the extension and the application of the finite element method to the electromagnetic scattering from periodic structures. From 2009 to 2010, he also spent one year as a Researcher with the TNO Defence, Security, and Safety, The Hague, The Netherlands, where he was involved with the electromagnetic modeling of kinetic inductance devices and their coupling with an array of slots in the terahertz range. His current research interests include numerical and asymptotic methods in electromagnetic scattering and antenna problems, electromagnetic interaction with moving media, and remote sensing. In particular, part of his research concerned numerical techniques based on the integral equation with a focus on domain decomposition and fast solution methods. 

Juan Mosig

He was born in Cádiz, Spain. He received the MS Degree in electrical engineering from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid, Spain, in 1973, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1983. Since 1991, he has been a Professor with the Laboratory of Electromagnetics and Acoustics, EPFL, where he has been the Director since 2000. He has held scientific appointments with the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY, USA, Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY, USA, the University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO, USA, the University of Rennes 1, Rennes, France, the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, Nice, France, and the Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby, Denmark. He has authored four chapters in books on microstrip antennas and circuits and over 150 reviewed papers. He has also directly supervised more than 30 Ph.D. theses. His current research interests include electromagnetic theory, numerical methods, and planar antennas. Dr. Mosig has served as a member of the Board in the Coordination Actions ARTIC (FP6) and CARE (FP7) and Transnational Delegate in the IEEE APS AdCom. He is a Founding Member and the Chair of the European Association on Antennas and Propagation and he also chairs the EuCAP Conferences series and its Steering Committee. He also founded in 2006 and conducts the series of INTELECT International Workshops on Computational Electromagnetics. He has been the Swiss Delegate for European COST Antenna Actions since 1985 and the Chair for the two last Actions 284 and IC0603 ASSIST from 2003 to 2011. From 2004 to 2007, he was a Vice-Coordinator of the FP6 Network of Excellence ACE which enabled the EuCAP Conference series. 

Anja K. Skrivervik 

She received the degree in electrical engineering and the Ph.D. degree from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1986 and 1992, respectively. She was with the University of Rennes, Rennes, France, as an Invited Research Fellow and 2 years in the industry; then, she returned part-time to EPFL as an Assistant Professor in 1996, where she is currently a Professeur Titulaire. She is the author or co-author of more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific publications. Her research interests include microwaves, antennas, electrically small antennas, implantable and wearable antennas, multifrequency and ultra-wideband antennas, and numerical techniques for electromagnetics. Dr. Skrivervik was the Chairperson of the Swiss URSI until 2012, is a Board Member of the European School on Antennas, and is frequently requested to review research programs and centers in Europe. She is an Elected Board Member of the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP). She was the recipient of the Latsis Award from EPFL. 

Zvonimir Sipus

He was born in Zagreb, Croatia, in 1964. He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, in 1988 and 1991, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden, in 1997.

From 1988 to 1994, he worked at Rudjer Boskovic Institute, Zagreb, Croatia, as a Research Assistant, involved in the development of detectors for explosive gases. In 1994, he joined the Antenna Group at the Chalmers University of Technology, where he was involved in research projects concerning conformal antennas and soft and hard surfaces. In 1997 he joined the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing, University of Zagreb, where he is now a Professor. Since 2008 he is the Head of the Department of Wireless Communications there. From 1999–2005 he was also an adjunct researcher at the Department of Electromagnetics, Chalmers University of Technology. His main research interests include numerical electromagnetics with application to antennas, microwaves, and optical communications.
