Hosted by the China Electrotechnical Society (CES), organized by the Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), and co-organized by the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IEEE IAS), the 26th International Conference on Electrical Machines and Systems (ICEMS 2023) was held in Zhuhai, South China's Guangdong province, from Nov 5 to 8, 2023, attracting over 1,300 domestic and international experts and scholars from 21 countries and regions.
Li Yaohua, vice-president of the CES and director of the Institute of Electrical Engineering of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Xu Dianguo, former vice-president of the Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), Han Yi, CES secretary-general, and Yan Zhuo, deputy secretary-general of the CES, attended the Conference.
The opening ceremony was presided over by Qu Ronghai, chair of the conference and a professor at the HUST. Representatives from participating organizations, institutes, universities and enterprises delivered keynote speeches.
The Conference saw the inclusion of 993 papers after a strict review and screening process, 65 paper presentations, two poster displays, and more than ten industrial exhibitions.
Additionally, eight technical report sessions were held prior to the Conference, with 18 professionals presenting reports on topics like “Motor Design”, “Drives”, “Reliability and Control”, alongside a further three industrial forums focusing on innovations and challenges in permanent magnet motors, new energy aircraft, and electrical drives.
At the closing ceremony, Prof Gan Chun from the HUST gave an overview of the conference. Forty authors whose articles ranked “excellent” were conferred certificates by Prof Qu Ronghai and Ayman EL-Refaie, president-elect of the IEEE IAS. Following that, Shu Yamamoto from the Fukuoka Institute of Technology presented the progress of the upcoming ICEMS 2024, on behalf of the organizer.
Additionally, a slew of sideline meetings were held simultaneously, including the ICEMS International Steering Committee work meeting, and the CES TEMS editorial board work meeting. A follow-up visit to the University of Macau and Zhuhai Kaibang Motor Manufacture Co., Ltd. was organized for participating experts and scholars.
Since being launched by the CES in 1987, the ICEMS has grown from a domestic conference to a grand international event, which is now recognized across the globe in the field of electrical machinery and systems, and hosted alternatively by China, Japan and the Republic of Korea.
As a high-end industry-academia-research exchange platform, it enables global academic and industrial professionals in the field of electrical machines and systems to dive into theoretical and technical innovations, showcase sci-tech achievements, and foster research cooperation.
