The length of the paper should be from 4 to 6 full pages, including the paper title, authors and affiliations, figures and references. Manuscripts must be prepared in English language in the IEEE standard two-column conference format (A4) using the template:

Template for Microsoft Word (.DOCX format)

Template for LaTeX (.ZIP format)

Online template in Overleaf

Authors upload papers/manuscripts through the conference webpage. The papers then go through the first round of a peer review process. Each submitted paper will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Their recommendations and proposals for improvements of the paper will be sent to the authors (if any).

When the paper status is "Paper revision required", the authors must revise the paper. After the authors address all comments from reviewers, they re-submit the revised paper. The changes in the revised paper must be highlighted.  The reviewers will check whether the paper is revised correctly, otherwise the paper will be returned to authors for futher revision. Revisions of a rejected paper will not be accepted.

Please be advised that every publication submitted to the ELEKTRO 2024 conference will be checked for plagiarism. Conference organizer is obliged to reject papers which did not pass the check or papers authored or co-authored by authors on the Prohibited Author List.

Final submission

Once the reviewers approve the paper for the publication (the paper status is "Paper accepted - awaiting final files"), the authors may submit the final version of the paper (without highlighted text).

Invited Lectures

Title: Resolution of Rotor Position Measurement: Modelling and Impact on Speed Estimation

Prof. Luigi Danilo Tornello
University of Catania, Italy

Abstract: In this presentation, the modelling of the finite resolution rotor position measurement and the concept of instantaneous quantized speed are initially introduced. This modelling has been exploited to evaluate the quantization harmonic filtering action and the performances of speed-controlled drives at low speed. It can also be used to select the minimal value of position sensor resolution to satisfy the technical specifications requested to a speed-controlled drive in the low-speed operating range. This approach has been experimentally validated in variable speed drives including non-model-based and model-based speed estimation algorithms.

Luigi Danilo Tornello received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Catania, Italy, in 2014 and 2017, respectively. In 2021 received the PhD in Systems Engineering, Energy, Information Technology and Telecommunications at the University of Catania, Italy. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Electrical Machines, Drives and Power Electronics group at the University of Catania, Italy. His research interests include ac drive control technologies, digital signal processing techniques. He was a recipient of the 2018 Third Prize Paper Award from the IES Electrical Machine Technical Committee.

Title: A Win-Win-Win Situation - A new and sustainable way of co-operation between universities and industries

Richard Feddeck
CIO Tires

Abstract: On the example of the “Ready for Continental” program at the University of Zilina you will learn how a student program can look like that benefits all participants – the students, the university and the company. This almost 6-year-old program is a showcase for a successful long-term collaboration that has been constantly adapted to change, the pandemic being the most drastic one. The secret lies in focusing on real projects, caring about each individual student and always working on eye-level across all parties. Join the keynote to immerse yourself into the structure, benefits and side-stories of this unique partnership.

Richard Feddeck, is the Chief Information Officer of Continental Tires one of the largest Tire companies worldwide, where he oversees strategy development and technology road mapping for enterprise architecture, business applications and solutions development, digital transformation, advanced analytics, infrastructure and technology operations, information security, business continuity, and innovation orchestration. Driven by the need to bring transparency, ownership and change mindset to our society, he takes great pride in providing the best technological solutions possible and with that business value to the company.

Title: Power electronics and hybrid transformers in distributed energy system - opportunities and challenges

Prof. Mariusz Malinowski
Warsaw University of Technology (WUT), Poland

Abstract: The fast development of distributed generation systems (DGS), including an increasing number of renewable energy sources (RES), demand the change of classical grid into smart grids (SG), integrating all new distributed elements, e.g., active loads/sources/energy storages. Currently used conventional transformer cannot fulfill all requirements of SG. Therefore a new solution is demanded due to the nature of highly different types of energy sources, loads, and frequent voltage disturbances occurring in DGS. The proposed modern solutions are the applications of multifunctional power electronics, fault-tolerant power electronics, and hybrid transformers, that are able not only to meet the main requirements of SG but also respond to the future challenges defined by the constant progress of technology in all new fields (e.g., electromobility, energy store systems, etc.).

Professor Mariusz Malinowski received the Ph.D. and D.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the Institute of Control and Industrial Electronics, Warsaw University of Technology (WUT), Warsaw, Poland, in 2001 and 2012, respectively. He is currently with the Institute of Control and Industrial Electronics, WUT. He has co-authored more than 150 technical papers and seven books. His current research interests include the control and the modulation of grid-side converters, multilevel converters, smart grids, and power-generation systems based on renewable energies. Prof. Malinowski was a recipient of the IEEE IES David Irwin Early Career Award, IEEE IES Bimal Bose Energy Systems Award, Polish Prime Minister Award and the Polish Ministry of Science and High Education Award. He is a Fellow of IEEE. He is a corresponding member of the Division of Engineering Sciences of the Polish Academy of Sciences.



The ELEKTRO 2024 conference will take place in hotel Belvedere, Zakopane, Poland.

Zakopane is a town in the extreme south of Poland, in the southern part of the Podhale region at the foot of the Tatra Mountains. It is Poland's best-known mountain resort, famed for hiking in sommer and skiing in winter. Zakopane is also known for its beutiful wooden villas, dating from the late 19th century.

Zakopane has many tourist attractions such as Kasprowy Wierch Cable Car, Cmentarz Zasluzonych Na Peksowym Brzyzku, Gubalowka, Krupowki Street, Giewont Mountain, Wielka Krokiew, Kotelnica Bialczanska, and Aqua Park Zakopane. Winter sleigh rides combined with a bonfire, singing and regional treats are one of the favourite tourist attractions of Zakopane.

The conference will be held at the hotel Belvedere – ul. Droga do Białego 3, 34-500 Zakopane, Poland. You can make a reservation of accommodation at the hotel using this link.
