EMC Europe is the result of a long tradition of EMC symposia dating back to the time when EMC Wroclaw, EMC Zurich (and before Zurich: Montreux and Rotterdam), as well as EMC Rome were gathering the entire European EMC community every other year. These symposia merged into the successful event that runs every year in various cities of Europe. It is supported and driven by the International Steering Committee, technically co-sponsored by the IEEE EMC Society, and managed by a local organizing committee. EMC Europe 2018 was held from 27 to 30 August in Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands. This was the third European EMC symposium in the Netherlands, as in 1979 the precursor of the EMC Zurich symposia was in Rotterdam, and the second EMC Europe was in 2004 in Eindhoven. The conference was held in the Beurs van Berlage located in the center of Amsterdam. It was designed as a commodity exchange by architect Berlage and constructed between 1896 and 1903.
