Past Marelec events

Preparation for the first Marelec event began in 1996. DERA’s* original concept was to hold a short seminar on the subject of electromagnetics. Professor Ernie Freeman of Imperial College agreed to host the meeting which has now developed into a four day conference.

As the event has evolved, the conference now attracts delegates with academic, industrial, theoretical, experimental and military backgrounds. However the previous events have all continued to be hosted by European defence organizations and therefore the decision to host Marelec 2011 in the United States at an academic institution was a significant development for this long established conference.
