Welcome Message

On behalf of the SDEMPED 2017 Organizing Committee, I would like to welcome you to the Cycladic island of Tinos for the 11th edition of the IEEE International Symposium on Diagnostics for Electric Machines, Power Electronics and Drives (SDEMPED 2017).

It is an honor and a pleasure to have the privilege to host SDEMPED for the first time in Greece. This is the 20th year since the first SDEMPED was established as the only international symposium entirely devoted to the diagnostics of electrical machines, power electronics and drives. This first SDEMPED edition, in 1997, was organized under the leadership of Professor Gérard-André Capolino and Professor Giuseppe Buja.

SDEMPED is now a regular biennial event mainly organized in Europe. Very successful recent editions have been held in Vienna (Austria) in 2005, Cracow (Poland) in 2007, Cargèse (France) in 2009, Bologna (Italy) in 2011, Valencia (Spain) in 2013, and Guard (Portugal) in 2015. For the 2017 edition, SDEMPED has received the financial co-sponsorship of the IEEE Power Electronics Society, the IEEE Industry Applications Society and the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society.

Greece has been chosen for the 2017 edition of the symposium. The island of Tinos offers an excellent venue for the conference, plenty of accommodations for stay, beautiful places to visit, a rich and long history, and a lively artist community. The organizing Committee consists of dedicated, experienced and hardworking researchers from all over the world.

The SDEMPED 2017 Organizing Committee wishes you a very successful Symposium. Enjoy your visit and your stay, and let’s make this an enjoyable and rewarding event.
