The EMD'2011 Conference is a continuation of the series of symposia concer­ning Overvoltages in Power Electronics and Computer Systems, which were started in 1990. Since then these conferences took place in Białystok and Hołny Mejera (Poland), Vilnius, Kaunas, Dubingiai and Palanga (Lithuania).

Protection against electromagnetic disturbances which may cause malfunction, failure, or permanent degradation of electronic and electric devices or systems is critical, especially from cost-effective perspective. This fact as well as the evolution of electronic technology caused impetuous neccesity for extension of the EMD conference scope with several new topics.

The aim of the EMD Conference is to create a forum for presentations and discussions about sources of electromagnetic disturbances, their influence on electronic devices and systems, and protection against them.
