A Message from Mariusz Malinowski, President of the Industrial Electronics Society


Dear Industrial Electronics Society Members,

The calendar year is ending, and it is always a period of taking summary. Therefore, it is also worth mentioning some events in our Society in 2022. Finally, we returned to relative normality after more than two years of the pandemic. The first event was finally a hybrid, and not just an online meeting, during the IEEE International Symposium on Industrial Electronics conference in Anchorage (Alaska, USA). Then, we held a fully stationary 48th Annual Conference of the Industrial Electronics Society IECON 2022 (Brussels, Belgium) with around 800 participants. It is also worth mentioning that our journals performed very well in the JCR ranking published this year. This is why we decided to launch a new Transactions on Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems (T-ICPS) that the IEEE Periodical Committee accepted. I would also like to emphasize that the pandemic has shown that there is also interest in fully online conferences, so we have organized the first IEEE Industrial Electronics Society Annual On-Line Conference (ONCON), which will be forever in our portfolio of conferences. Finally, our Society passed an evaluation by the TAB Society and Council Review Committee (SCRC).

Therefore, we can look to the new year with optimism. I wish all IES members all the best in the new year, 2023.

The Industrial Electronics Society would like to congratulate Giusy Iaria and Jiacheng Wang, the two recipients of the IES Student & Young Professionals Paper Assistance (IES-SYPA) session of the ISIE conference in June 2022. Click to read more about their projects and biographies.


We had the chance to interview - in person this time! - Marek Jasinski, Chair of the IEEE IES Student and Young Professionals Activity Committee (S&YP-AC). Check the full interview to learn more about a young, and professional, volunteer fully dedicated to our younger members.


The 2022 edition of our annual flagship Society conference IEEE IECON was held in Brussels, 17-20 Oct. 2022. About 800 experts, academic and industrial, joined this first face-to-face version after two years of online events


The IECON 2023 will be held during 16-19 Oct. 2023 in Singapore. The 49th Annual Conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society is focusing on contemporary industry topics ranging from electronics, controls, manufacturing, to communications and computational intelligence.


The 2023 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2023) will be held 1-5 October 2023 in Detroit, MI, USA. IROS is an impactful forum for international robotics research in intelligent robots and smart machines.


This awarded paper presents a novel hybrid-excitation flux-switching (HEFS) machine with axial partitioned stator (APS) arrangement, which can achieve the independent accommodation of armature winding and field-excitation winding, thus enhancing the field-excitation capability and improving the winding heat dissipation.

Iterative Learning Control (ILC) can achieve perfect performance for motion systems. In this webinar, a general learning framework of ILC is presented that exploits measured error signals from previous tasks. In addition, a complete design framework for motion systems is provided.


Tuesday, 31 January 2023 at 8:00 AM NZDT (Monday, 30 January 2023 8:00 PM CET – 2:00 PM EST)
by Prof. Nihal Kularatna (University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand)
Supercapacitors can help develop uniquely new families of extra low-frequency power converters and protection circuits, identified as Supercapacitor Assisted (SCA) techniques. This presentation summarizes these SCA techniques, and compares them with traditional power electronic building blocks.
