Ivor Catt and Dr. David Walton have been collaborators for many years in elaborating some electromagnetic fundamentals. They have jointly given symposia on this topic to various technical institutions in the U.K. Dr. David Walton is a former lecturer in the Physics Department of Trinity College Dublin and has co-authored a number of books on this subject with Ivor Catt. They will present their insights, looking at some of the implications, with particular reference to electromagnetic compatibility.

Dr. Denis Bailey is a Radiotherapist in St. Lukes’s Hospital, Dublin. In recent years he has been researching the theoretical and clinical possibilities of the therapeutic use of non-ionising electromagnetic radiation.

David Rodger was born in 1951, was awarded the degree of BSc (Eng)
from the University of Aberdeen and was appointed to the University of Bath as a research officer in 1977. He has been a Professor in the
School of Electronic and Electrical Engineering since 1990. He is a member of the International Steering Committee of COMPUMAG Conference on the calculation of Electromagnetic fields and a member of TEAM (Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods) Planning Board.
He specialises in the numerical solution of electromagnetic field problems using finite elements. He has published around 100 papers on
this topic and on the application of numerical analysis to electrical
machines.
