The Sixth Workshop on Computational Electromagnetics in Time-Domain (CEM-TD 2005) will be held at the Technology Square Research Building (TSRB) at Georgia Tech from September 12-14, 2005. This conference is organized by the Georgia Electronic Design Center (GEDC) of Georgia Tech, Atlanta, GA, U.S.A. Atlanta, the venue of the 1996 Olympics, is the business, educational, technological and cultural center of the South in the US. Its airport is the busiest in the world with direct links to most destinations all over the world.

The Georgia Electronics Design Center (GEDC) at Georgia Tech is pleased to host and invite you for the biennial international workshop, CEM-TD 2005. Since 1995, this workshop has successfully been held five times before in Europe and North America. The main objectives of this workshop are (1) to bring together the researchers and practitioners from around the globe to exchange new ideas and application experiences in time domain electromagnetic modeling and (2) to stimulate the development of novel time domain algorithms and their applications to realistic and challenging problems. The workshop will consist of invited special talks, contributed presentations and poster sessions. English will be the working language and selected papers are planned to be published in a Special issue of the International Journal of Numerical Modeling.
