International Conference on Applied Superconductivity and Electromagnetic Devices
IEEE 2020 International Conference on
Applied Superconductivity and Electromagnetic Devices
(ASEMD2020 )



IEEE 2020 International Conference on Applied Superconductivity and Electromagnetic Devices (ASEMD2020) will be held in October 2020 in China and Australia.

The 1st ASEMD conference was held in Chengdu, China, on September 25-27, 2009; the 2nd was in Sydney, on December 14-16, 2011; the 3rd was in Beijing, China, on October 25-27, 2013; the 4th was in Shanghai on November 20-23, 2015; and the 5th on April 16-18, 2018 in Tianjin, China.

Applied superconductivity is generally categorized into material, electrical and electronic sections. Material synthesis and characterization, power applications, rotating machines, and magnet technology are essential components comprising one principal part of the ASEMD scope.

Electromagnetic devices, the other principle part of ASEMD, covers electric, magnetic, and electronic devices, either superconducting or not. This part also includes work in electromagnetic analysis, measurement, and automation.

ASEMD2020 continues the focus and provides a forum for both academic and industrial researchers in the relevant fields to discuss and share ideas, present results, reflect on past experiences and discuss future developments.

The contributed and accepted papers to the previous ASEMD conferences have been all published in its proceedings and uploaded to the IEEE Xplore digital library and been EI indexed, and also published in special issues of IEEE Transaction on Applied Superconductivity after through the normal peer review process.
