ICEM 2014 

Welcome Message 


On behalf of the ICEM’2014 Organizing Committee, we would like to welcome you all in Berlin for the XXIst edition of the International Conference on Electrical Machines (ICEM). It is really a great honor and a pleasure as well to have the privilege to host ICEM in this city

The ICEM has been established as the oldest, the largest and the most prestigious international conference entirely devoted to electrical machines. Started in London in 1974 under the leadership of the passed Professor Arthur Ellison, ICEM is now a regular biennial event mainly organized in Europe. Very successful recent editions have been held in Helsinki, Finland in 2000, Bruges, Belgium in 2002, Cracow, Poland in 2004, Chania, Greece in 2006, Vilamoura, Portugal in 2008, Roma, Italy in 2010 and Marseille, France in 2012. Even if the ICEM is an independent and non-profit organization, it has started links with the Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) with a technical co-sponsorship of societies in 2006. This has been the consequence of a real jump in quality and now ICEM papers are published in one of the most important scientific data bases in the world, the so-called IEEEXplore. Moreover, ICEM papers are now more referenced than in the past due to what IEEE is providing in term of international visibility. For the 2014 edition, ICEM has received the technical co-sponsorship of the IEEE Industry Applications Society and the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society.

This is the second time ICEM is coming in Germany after the 1986 edition in München which has been successful as well with 304 papers presented and a bit more than 400 attendees. Berlin has been chosen for the 2014 edition of the conference. No need to say that Berlin is one of the most international areas in Germany being the capital and the largest city of the country. Berlin is also a cultural and artistic city with 166 museums, 142 libraries and 60 theaters. Moreover, from a purely technical point of view, the Technical University of Berlin, funded in 1879, has a long tradition in the area of electrical machines.

The ICEM’2014 Organizing Committee wishes you a very successful conference in which you will certainly attend interesting technical sessions, you will meet new friends and colleagues for further collaborations and you will return back home with new ideas from this exciting technical field of electrical machines.


Enjoy Berlin, enjoy ICEM’2014 and join us to make it a memorable event!
