Eastern Mediterranean University was represented at the 41st Industrial Electronics Conference (IECON2015), which took place at Yokohama, Japan between 9 and 12 November 2015. During the said event, Eastern Mediterranean University Engineering Faculty, Computer Engineering Department academic staff member Prof. Dr. Hasan Kömürcügil delivered two presentations entitled "A Novel Multi-level Bi-directional Dc-Dc Converter for Inductive Power Transfer Applications" and "Sliding Mode Control Strategy for Three-phase DVR Employing Twelve-switch Voltage Source Converter".

Prof. Dr. Kömürcügil's presentation "A Novel Multi-level Bi-directional Dc-Dc Converter for Inductive Power Transfer Applications" received the best presentation award in the Wireless Power Transfer session. During the current era, the transmission of electrical power from a power source to a consuming device without using discrete manmade conductors is a new technology used in the charging of smart phones, medical devices and electrical cars.

IECON is the Annual Conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, focusing on industrial and manufacturing theory and applications of electronics, controls, communications, instrumentation and computational intelligence. The objectives of the conference are to provide high quality research and professional interactions for the advancement of science, technology, and fellowship. During the conference which was participated by notable scientists from all over the world, Prof. Dr. Hasan Kömürcügil chaired the session entitled "Power Electronics".
