The Eledia Research Center is pleased to accounce that Prof. Agostino Monorchio has been elected to be a member of the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Administrative Committee (AP-S AdCom).

The IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) is an international organization founded in 1949 and active in over 40 countries.
The field of interest of the AP-S encompasses: antennas, including analysis, design, development, measurement, and testing; radiation, propagation, and the interaction of electromagnetic waves with discrete and continuous media; and applications and systems pertinent to antennas, propagation, and sensing, such as applied optics, millimeter- and sub-millimeter-wave techniques, antenna signal processing and control, radio astronomy, and propagation and radiation aspects of terrestrial and space-based communication, including wireless, mobile, satellite, and telecommunications.
The Administrative Committee manages the activities of the Society and is composed by the President, the President-Elect, twelve elected members, and the four most-junior past Presidents.

Agostino Monorchio is a Professor at the University of Pisa. He spent several research periods at the Electromagnetic Communication Laboratory at Pennsylvania State University (USA), both as a recipient of a scholarship (Fellowship Award) of the Summa Foundation, New Mexico (USA), and in the framework of the CNR-NATO Senior Fellowship program. He has carried out considerable research activity and technical consultancy to national, EU and U.S. industries, coordinating, as principal scientific investigator, a large number of national and European research projects. He serves as a reviewer for international journals, and he was an Associate Editor of the IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation Letters from 2002 to 2007. Prof. Monorchio is active in a number of areas including computational electromagnetics, microwave metamaterials, radio propagation for wireless systems, the design and miniaturization of antennas and electromagnetic compatibility, as well as biomedical microwaves applications. The activity is mainly carried out at the Microwave and Radiation Laboratory (www.mrlab.it) of the Department of Information Engineering, University of Pisa, together with a large group of Ph.D. students, post-docs and research associates.
He is a member of RaSS National Laboratory of CNIT (Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Telecomunicazioni) and in 2010 he affiliated with the Pisa Section of INFN, the National Institute of Nuclear Physics. His research results have been published in more than 100 journal papers and book chapters, and more than 200 communications at international and national conferences; he is the co-author of four patents. In 2012 he was elevated to Fellow grade by the IEEE for his contributions to computational electromagnetics and for application of frequency selective surfaces in metamaterials.
