Aegean Conference on Electrical Machines and Power Electronics

Optimization of Electrical & Electronic Equipment Conference

İstanbul, Turkey, 2-4 September 2019

Important dates:
Special session proposals April 1, 2019
Contributed full papers March 20, 2019
Notification of acceptance June 15, 2019

Organizing committees of OPTIM and ACEMP conferences decided in 2014 to organize these conferences jointly in the future, thus increasing the quality, participation, international recognition and reputation of both conferences.


The first joint event was held in Side in 2015. This was followed by a successful event in Brasov Romania, in 2017. The 2019 joint conference is planned to take place in early September 2019 in İstanbul, Turkey, where Europe meets Asia.


In the true tradition of ACEMP and OPTIM, once again the meeting will include presentations by well-known scientists in the electrical machines and power electronics subject areas.


We are looking forward to your participation to make this conference a memorable occasion.


NOTE : Papers presented durring the conference will be indexed by IEEE Xplore
