ICEM 2010 : XIX International Conference on Electrical Machines
Call For Papers
International Conference on Electrical Machines, now in its 19th edition, has established itself as an
influential and recognised international event and is the only major Conference entirely devoted
to electrical machines where the community of specialists discusses the progress achieved and the
future developments in technologies, analysis, design, testing, operations, practical applications,
maintenance and teaching in the field of electrical machines.
Started in London in 1974, ICEM is now established as a regular biannual event. Very successful
Conferences were held in Helsinki (Finland) in 2000, Bruges (Belgium) in 2002, Cracow (Poland)
in 2004, Chania (Greece) in 2006 and Vilamoura (Portugal) in 2008.
In order to keep the scientific high quality of the past ICEM editions papers, the following
issues have been confirmed or established for the 2010 edition:
* only full provisional papers may be submitted for evaluation;
* IEEE Copyright Form and ICEM Statement of Originality will be received for each paper;
* an On-line Conference Paper Submission System will be adopted;
* each paper will be reviewed by at least 2 referees;
* topics are arranged in tracks, each one having at least two co-chairs to manage the
* Special Sessions will be organized;
* all accepted papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore data base;
* four awards will be conferred:
* ICEM Best Paper Award
* ICEM Best Poster Presentation Award
* ICEM Arthur Ellison Achievement Award
* ICEM Distinguished Service Award.
This Conference is organized by:
University of L’Aquila
Sapienza University of Roma
University Roma Tre
The scope of the Conference includes: advances in technologies, analysis, manufacturing and measurements of electrical machines and drives.
Conference topics have been divided by tracks and each track will have two co-chairs or more
in order to take care of the reviewing process.
