The Power Electronics and Motion Control (PEMC) conference circulates in Europe as a direct continuation of the same field conferences held since 1970 mostly in Budapest, organized by the Hungarian Electro-technical Association with headquarter in Budapest. This makes this Conference the oldest one in this area in Europe. Now PEMC Council, involving representatives from many of the European countries, controls the organization of the PEMC conferences. In August 2015 the Industrial Electronics Society of the IEEE conferred to the PEMC conference the prestigious name of most important IEEE conference, naming it from now on, the IEEE-PEMC conference.

The main goal of IEEE-PEMC is to promote and co-ordinate the exchange and the publication of technical, scientific and economic information in the field of Power Electronics and Motion Control. One of the main objectives is the cooperation and integration between the long-time divided Western and Eastern European countries, also expressed in the conference logo. The conference attracts now a large number (roughly 500+) of participants from overseas as well. An exhibition is organised in parallel with every PEMC Conference, offering space for the industry to present their latest products in the field of Power Electronics and Motion Control. In addition to the regular oral sessions, key notes, round tables, tutorials, workshops, seminars, exhibitions, the dialogue sessions (enlarged “poster” presentations) present to the speakers a better cooperation among the participants.

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.
