This year, the UPC hosted EMC Europe 2019, the largest conference on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) that is held in Europe and one of the three largest in the world. The event, which was held in Barcelona on 2–6 September, was organised by the Electromagnetic Compatibility Group (GCEM UPC) and EMC Europe in collaboration with the IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society (IEEE EMCS).
EMC Europe 2019, which brought together the top experts internationally, was a unique forum for exchanging ideas and the results of the latest research in the academic world, from research laboratories and industry worldwide. The high quality of the scientific contributions was notable. In addition to five parallel sessions throughout the week, plenary sessions, workshops, tutorials, posters and meetings on some European research projects were organised, covering 120 contents in all fields of EMC. Subject areas were addressed that were as diverse as new applications in aeronautics, the automobile industry, new materials for EMC, metrology, effects of exposure on human health, civil protection and infrastructures or smart cities, to give some examples.
This year’s edition had a record number of participants in the history of EMC Europe: over 700 people attended from 44 countries around the world.
The Technical Exhibition, organised on the middle three days of the conference, brought together 34 companies providing equipment and services relating to electromagnetic compatibility.
