XX International Conference on Electrical Machines

26.06.2012 – Conferenza ICEM 2012 – 2-5 Settembre 2012 presso il Palais des Congres et des Expositions, Marseille (France)




The International Conference on Electrical Machines (ICEM) has established itself as an influential and recognized International event, being the only major international conference entirely devoted to electrical machines. Started in London in 1974, ICEM is now established as a regular event. Very successful recent editions were held in Helsinki (Finland) in 2000, Bruges (Belgium) in 2002, Cracow (Poland) in 2004, Chania (Greece) in 2006, Vilamoura (Portugal) in 2008 and Roma (Italy) in 2010.



Main scopes of the conference include technology advances in design, analysis, manufacturing and measurements for electrical machines and drives. Topics covered by the conference are based on the following tracks:

  • TPC-1 Classical rotating field machines (Co-Chairs: Frédéric Gillon, Gianmario Pellegrino, Dave Dorrell)

Induction machines – Synchronous magnet synchronous machines – Reluctance machines – DC machines

  • TPC-2 Innovative machines and actuators (Co-Chairs: Jean-François Rouchon, Akira Chiba, Yve Perriard)

Linear machines – Levitation/Launching machines – Micro & nano machines – Piezo & electrostatic actuators

  • TPC-3 Electrical drives (Co-Chairs: Bruno Robert, Radu Bojoi, Peter Omand Rasmussen)

Sensorless control – Modulation techniques – Vector control – Direct torque control – Flux & power control – Fault tolerant control

  • TPC-4 Design and related problems (Co-Chairs: Noureddine Takorabet, Andrea Cavagnino, Ayman El-Refaie)

Materials (insulation, magnetic and supra) – Analytical design – Optimal design

  • TPC-5 Condition monitoring, diagnosis (Co-Chairs: Raphael Romary, Fabio Giulii Capponi, Mario Pacas)

Monitoring and diagnosis – Measurement/Instrumentation – Thermal, acoustic noise and vibration problems

  • TPC-6 Embedded applications (Co-chairs: Christophe Forgez, Chris Gerada, Leila Parsa)

Aeronautics – Space technology – Earth transportation (road, railway) – Ship propulsion and generation

  • TPC-7 Grid-connected or emergency applications  (Co-chairs: Marc Petit, Marcello Pucci, Josep Guerrero)

Transformers and coils – Power generation – Renewable – Emergency generation & monitoring – Storage system

In addition, special sessions, based on groups of 6 papers (or multiple of 6), can be organized on the initiative of any volunteer proposing NO MORE than 2 papers inside. Special session topics must be in areas consistent with those of the conference. Proposals on Education will be more than welcome.

We look forward to meeting you soon  in Marseille.
