The 6th Global Power, Energy and Communication Conference, GPECOM2024, focuses on the latest technologies, researches and challenges of power electronics, energy systems and communication technologies. The conference will be held on June 4-7, 2024. The conference venue is Bosch Budapest Innovation Campus in Budapest, Hungary.

GPECOM2024 will be in a hybrid concept combining in-person and online presentations to accommodate a broader audience and diverse participation. The primary objective of GPECOM2024 is to offer a platform for researchers to share their most recent research findings in various domains, including Power Electronics, Electrical Machines and Drives, Control Systems, Power Generation, Transmission and Distribution, Conventional and Renewable Energy Systems, as well as cutting-edge technologies related to Microgrids and Smart Grids, Communication Systems, and Technologies. The conference aims to foster a professional network that connects researchers, academicians, industry professionals, engineers, and experts in these specialized research areas. The conference actively encourages the submission of research papers that cover power, energy, and communication systems, with an emphasis on control, modelling, design, integration, and practical applications across the technical track (TT) fields.

GPECOM2024 is a peer-review conference with blind review process.

The technical topics of the regular sessions include but are not limited to the following topics:

TT1- Power Electronics, Devices and Controllers

TT2- Electrical Machines and Drives

TT3- Conventional and Renewable Energy Technologies

TT4- Smart Grid Researches and Applications

TT5- Communication Technologies and Researches
