ICDCM - IEEE International Conference on DC Microgrids

27 - 29 June 2017

Nuremberg / Germany

The Second ICDCM will be held in Germany, a hotbed of direct current (DC) power technology, following on the heels of a successful first conference in Atlanta, GA, USA in 2015. The conference aims to bring together industrial and researchers in the field of DC microgrids and related technologies to advance our understanding and capability for endpoint use of DC systems and technologies. Technical sessions will be arranged around focus areas – the use of DC systems with low voltages (up to 1500 VDC) in kW power scale e.g. in residential and commercial buildings and MW power scale in industrial applications as a part of private or public installations with up to several thousand Volts.

ESREF - European Symposium on Reliability of Electron
Devices, Failure Physics and Analysis

25 - 29 September 2017
Cité Mondiale du Vin Bordeaux / France

ESREF 2017 will be held in Bordeaux – This South West French major town is the European capital for optical and laser engineering, with the so called “ Laser Mégajoule”, one of the most powerful lasers in the world.

Some of the largest companie involved in aeronautic and aerospace industry are located around Bordeaux. Dassault Falcon series private jets are built there as well as the French military aircraft Rafale; the Airbus A380 cockpit, the boosters of Ariane 5
Bordeaux is located at the very heart of Southern Europe. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List, and classified as "City of Art and History”.
The University of Bordeaux is leading the “Initiative of Excellence” (Idex) program in association with national research organizations and higher educational institutes. 53 000 students take benefit of the multidisciplinary and international framework of the "Investments for the Future" program.

Hosting ESREF 2017 in this rich environment is a great opportunity since reliability in these particular applications is a very hot topic with strong challenges such as zero ppm failure and harsh environments.
For this 28th edition, in addition to the core topics of the conference, we would like to involve the major actors of aeronautics, space and embedded systems industry to provide specific topics such as radiation hardening, very long-term reliability, high/low temperature challenges, obsolescence and counterfeit issues, wide band gap power devices for the more electric aircraft and other embedded system applications.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for a memorable experience!

EDPC - International Electric Drives Production Conference and Exhibition -

5 - 6 December 2017
Wuerzburg / Germany

Call Deadline: 31 May 2017

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 7th 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.
