The 2014 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) will be held in Raleigh, North Carolina from August 3-8, 2014.  This symposium is sponsored by the IEEE EMC Society will feature several concurrent technical sessions.  You'll find an Exhibit hall with hundreds of booths filled with latest products, equipment and services.  Later in the event we'll feature concurrent workshops and tutorials. In addition there are many collateral industry and profession meetings planed thoroughout the week. Finally, there a numerous formal and informal opportunities to network with old friends, meet new friends, experts, professionals and industry representatives.


Opened in 2008, The Raleigh Convention Center is an innovative three-level 500,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility. It is best known for it's public art piece called the 'Shimmer Wall' that contains metal plates in the form of an oak tree backed by LED lights to represent Raleigh's nickname, the 'City of Oaks'.

The Raleigh Convention Center, the Red Hat Amphitheater and the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts are all within steps of one another, blending entertainment and convenience for convention goers and weekend visitors alike.

Electromagnetic Compatibility is what is achieved when there is no undesirable Electromagnetic Interference.  There are many ways for EMI to be coupled into electrical and electronic systems and just as many ways to mitigate and eliminate the EMI. To address these extremes we turn to understand, development, and application of the latest technologies, education, systems integration, products, and services. These engineering area offer great potential with the prospect of early implementation and international utilization. The IEEE International Symposium on EMC is the premier venue for the presentation of the cutting edge of the state-of-the-art in these areas. The conference objective is to provide a comprehensive overview of the latest in EMC research, design, and development in order to furnish attendees EMC information that is applicable to their organizations.


Conference topic presentations describe the science, design, applications and technology. They will include applications in areas such as:

• Intrasystem EMC • Grounding & Bonding
• Intersystem EMC • Transient Suppression
• Electromagnetic Interference • Spectrum Management
• Electromagnetic Environments • RF Radiation Hazards
• Lightning • Electro-static Discharge
• Electromagnetic Pulse • Emission Control

As has been the case at all EMC Society sponsored conferences over the past 53 years, the attendees will participate in a meeting format which encourages an atmosphere of collegial interchanges and interaction among participants from diverse disciplines around the world.


The IEEE International Symposium on EMC has something for everyone!  The technical sessions are well suited for the experience EMC Design or Manager Engineer.  Professional development  is provided at the Global University for novice engineers to the technical area of EMC.  Students participation is recognized with a special Student Paper Award.  Companions, be they spouse, family, friends or youth have their own program that provides tours of the greater Raleigh area.  There is even a special free Junior Technical Program that introduces the fundamentals of EMC to the youth.
