James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879)
was a man of prodigious and singular gifts, of insight, curiosity and
determination. His equations, developed 150 years ago, describe the link between the classical and quantum worlds of physics. A man who touched nearly every corner of natural philosophy (the study of nature), James reconciled the properties of light, heat and electromagnetic radiation. His
equations ultimately formed a crucial link in the chain that brought Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein together. Einstein noted that, “One scientific epoch ended and another began with James Clerk Maxwell.”
Join us for a special session at the 2014 IEEE International Symposium on EMC in Raleigh, North Carolina to recognize the 150th anniversary of Maxwell’s equations. Speakers include former IEEE MTT Society Distinguished Lecturer, James Rautio, on the life and times of Maxwell as well as IEEE EMC Society President Dr. Robert Scully who will provide insight on how these equations continue to impact the work of today’s EMC engineers.

This keynote presentation traces the evolution of EMC engineering, starting with the EMC concerns of the military during WW II, progressing through present day commercial and military EMC issues, and then looking forward into the future.
The development of EMC standards, military and commercial, is traced along with the formation of the IEEE EMC Society and the emergence of various EMC educational options.
The presentation discusses the driving forces behind present day EMC technology and concludes with my gazing into a hazy crystal ball and speculating on the future trends in EMC.
