The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of Bialystok University of Technology hosted the 24th International Conference on Electromagnetic Disturbances. Between 20 and 22 September, over 50 scientists and specialists from Poland, Japan, Brazil, France, Slovakia, Russia, Belarus and Lithuania discussed electromagnetic compatibility in its broad sense.

The EMD 2017 international conference was most of all a knowledge and experience exchange forum for representatives of the academic, scientific, research and industry  communities that promoted establishing contacts and collaboration for solving electromagnetic compatibility problems in devices, systems, and networks. The conference programme included oral and poster sessions on e.g. natural and artificial origins of electromagnetic disturbances, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), protection against disturbances, measurements and simulation of disturbances, as well as on effects of disturbances on power, communication and computer systems and on human health. During the conference, companies related to the field were also presented.

The name of the conference, i.e. ‘Electromagnetic Disturbances – EMD’ has been used since 2001. In odd-number years, the event takes place in Poland, while in even-number years –in Lithuania. This year’s edition was organised at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of Bialystok University of Technology, together with Vilnius Gediminas Technical University and Kaunas University of Technology. The conference is also supported by: the Polish Section of the IEEE, the Polish Committee of Lightning Protection of the Electrical Engineers Association SEP, the Bialystok Division of the Polish Electrical Engineers Association, the Polish National Committee URSI, and the Section of Electromagnetic Compatibility of the Electronics and Telecommunications Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
