IEEE-PEMC - International Conference on Power Electronics and Motion

26 - 30 August 2018
Budapest / Hungary

Extended call deadline: 9 March 2018

The IEEE PEMC Conference provides forum for presentation and discussion of new ideas in the field of Industrial Electronics and Motion Control. It integrates specialists both from academia and industry as expressed in the logo of the conference. The IEEE PEMC Conference series fulfill needs of researchers, mainly from PEMC countries, and it also attract top contributions from all over the world. A special attention is devoted to evoking mutual collaboration of participants to prepare joint international research projects by organizing project oriented sessions and round table discussions during the conference. Significant support is devoted to young scientist.


In last decades, the IEEE PEMC Conference (previously named as the PEMC and EPE-PEMC Conference) has become the largest and most important conference on Industrial Electronics and Motion Control in Central and Eastern Europe. Since 2016 the conference has been sponsored by IEEE IES and IAS. As a tribute to the deceased PEMC Council chairman prof. Istvan Nagy, the “PEMC Council Award” is renamed to “Istvan Nagy Award”.

The aim of this 18th IEEE-PEMC conference is to stimulate the findings of intelligent solutions (intelligent power electronics, intelligent control), in order to achieve the Intelligent Motion, Intelligent Mechatronics, Intelligent Sensors and Actuators, Intelligent Robots, Intelligent (more than smart) Micro Grids, Intelligent Power System, Intelligent Energy Generation, Processing, Distributing and Consuming, steadily walking to a better world.
