General Information
GCMEA 2008 MAJIC 1st  
Otsu Prince Hotel,Lake Biwa,Otsu,Japan


The organizing committee cordially invite scientists and engineers to participate in the GCMEA 2008; the first Global Congress on Microwave Energy Applications. The theme of the Congress is “A New Flame for Humanity” by microwave technology. We expect researchers and engineers working in related fields to attend the Congress.


On behalf of the international microwave society (MAJIC) jointing the five related organizations, the organizing committee cordially invites you to submit papers to the first world congress, GCMEA 2008 MAJIC 1.
We would implement the concept that GCMEA is a Congress of "the joint organizations". The conference will be highlighting the uniqueness of the five organizations. Therefore, the sessions will consist of the five special sessions (each 2.5 hr) organized by each organization and the general sessions organized by the technical program committee.
The program will be held under the key phrase.
"The world wide Cooperation to Challenge the New Flame for Humanity"

For the general sessions, we are planning to select the papers according to the classification of the sessions. In addition, we also have an idea to settle additional frames for selecting the papers expressed by the three keywords, Why (Fundamental physics for microwave heating), How (Bridging science and technology), and What (Future technology).

The conference subjects will consist of the six categories described below.

Chemical Synthesis
Organic Synthesis, Inorganic Synthesis, Polymers & Composites
Materials Processing
Ceramics, Metals, Iron making, Plasma
Bio, Medical and Environment
Medical, Food, Wood, Environment
System and Applications
Instruments, Combined Applications, Safety
Theory and Measurements
Microwave Physics, Material Properties, Modeling
Industrial Applications
Applicator & Systems, Microwave & RF Generators, Transmission lines and components, High Power Tubes & Solid Sate Oscillators
