5 August 2012 – 11 August 2012 all day
David L. Lawrence Convention Center
1000 Fort Duquesne Blvd
Pittsburgh, PA 15222


General Information

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 52 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.

Who Should Attend

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 Pittsburgh area. There is even a special free Junior Technical Program that introduces the fundamentals of EMC to the youth.
