European PhD School: Power Electronics, Electrical Machines, Energy Control
and Power Systems

21 - 25 May 2018
Gaeta / Italy

We are pleased to announce the 19th edition of the European PhD School: Power Electronics, Electrical Machines, Energy Control and Power Systems, which will be held in Gaeta (Italy), May 21-25, 2018


The School was founded in 1999 with the goal of providing Ph.D. students with the opportunity to broaden their knowledge in the research areas of Power Electronics, Electrical Machines and Drives, Power Systems. Subsequently, the School has gained an increasing relevance thanks to the participation of highly qualified lecturers: in 2009 the School changed its name to “European” Ph.D. School.


Year by year continuous efforts have been made in order to improve the offering: main result was the increasing number of international students joining the School (more than 100!).

IEEE-PEMC - International Conference on Power Electronics and Motion

26 - 30 August 2018
Budapest / Hungary

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.

E|DPC - Interantional Electric Drives Production Conference and Exhibition

4 - 5 December 2018
Schweinfurt / Germany

Call for Papers
Call deadline: 31 May 2018

Increasing power consumption, CO2 reduction, growing mobility or progressing automation – none of these future megatrends is possible without powerful electric drives. The electrification of the automobile powertrain is considered crucial, as the whole sector is facing difficulties resulting from the substitution of the conventional combustion engine. Besides advancing ideas on the design of powerful electric drives, the organization of the manufacturing processes and systems is of great importance.

The 8th International Electric Drives Production Conference offers an outstanding platform for the exchange of experiences for developers, researchers and potential users.

The focus of the conference is set on the presentation of highly innovative products from various industries as well as manufacturing processes and strategies. Following the conference, there will be an industrial exhibition, a poster presentation and an accompanying program.
