EPNC 2020 will be held in Torino, Italy at the Politecnico on June 30-July 3, 2020. The aim of the Symposium is to present the recent advances in the analysis, synthesis, optimisation and inverse problems in nonlinear electromagnetics. The symposium provides a forum for discussion on applications of nonlinear phenomena in electrical engineering by field and circuit methods.

The paper submission deadline has been postponed
The deadline for paper submission has been extended to March 1, 2020. More information can be obtained on the Call for Papers section and the online submission system.

Torino offers both luxury and characteristic shops. Most of the luxury shops are located in the city centre on via Roma: fashion boutiques, jewelry shops, perfume shops and food and wine stores which feature the best of the regional products. Then there are the characteristic shops in the little alleys of the inner city, full of cafes and craftshops. Torino has a little bit (or, as is often the case, a lot) of everything and for all budgets as well.


Torino is one of the undisputed world capital of taste. It has always boasted a renowned food and wine tradition. The region’s extraordinary cuisine can be enjoyed in over 600 city restaurants. Restaurants are usually open from 12.00 to 14.30 and from 19.30 to 22.30. For those who prefer something different to the classic menus, Torino proposes a most pleasant alternative: wine bars. Torino is also renowned for the ability of its pastrycooks.


Located in the north-west of Italy Torino has a continental weather, which is usually mild at the beginning of summer. Average temperatures range from 24°C to 27°C.

The symposium social programme will include two nice events.

The former will be a welcome cocktail reception on July 1 at the wondeful Valentino Castle, a XVII-century royal residence now housing the faculty of architecture of the Politecnico di Torino.

The latter is the social dinner which will be held in a city restaurant on July 2 (more information will be posted as soon available).
