Since 1991 the electrical engineering activities of researchers, academics and engineers from industry have been promoted by The Faculty of Electrical Engineering Craiova at the International Conference on Applied and Theoretical Electricity.

Organized every two years, the conference has grown constantly in terms of organizational facilities, number of participants from Romania and abroad, scientific quality and visibility for academia and industry at regional and European level. The technical program committee was renewed over time with prominent specialists.

The past editions of the conference have benefit mainly by the financial support of the University of Craiova and the Romanian Ministry of Education and Research, as well as some local organizations from research and industry area. In terms of technical support, it must be noticed the involvement of the Romanian Academy of Technical Sciences, the National R&D Institute of Electrical Engineering – ICPE Bucharest, National R&D Institute of Electrical Engineering ICMET Craiova. As recognition of the scientific level grown, starting with the past edition (ICATE 2012) the conference benefits by IEEE technical co-sponsorship and the conference proceedings has been included in IEEEXplore database.

The aim of the edition 2014 of the conference is to provide an international forum for scientific research in the theory, technologies and applications of electrical engineering as well as in related fields. It will be an excellent opportunity to debate modern approaches and techniques in applications of interest. A plenary session and a special student session will be also hosted.
