The EMD'2017 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).
XXIV International Conference on Electromagnetic Disturbances will be held in Bialystok on 20−22 September 2017, in the building of Faculty of Electrical Engineering of Bialystok University of Technology.
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 necessity for extension of the EMD conference scope with several new topics.
The aim of the EMD Conference is to create a forum for presentation and discussion concerning sources of electromagnetic disturbances, their influence on electronic devices and systems, and protection against them.
The conference language is English.
Note: The summary submission deadline has been extended.
For those who pay the registration fee after June 30th, 2017, we cannot guarantee your papers will be printed in the conference proceedings.
