The aim of the workshop is to discuss recent developments in optimization and inverse methodologies and their applications to the design and operation of electromagnetic devices. It is intended to establish with the workshop an occasion when experts in electromagnetics and other areas (e.g. engineering, mathematics, physics, etc.), involved in research or industrial activities, can discuss on the theoretical aspects and on the technical relevance of optimization and inverse problems, in the general framework of the innovation in electromagnetic methods and applications.
