Conference Announcement

Following the success of the 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 editions we are proud to announce the organization of the 2022 International Young Engineers Forum on Electrical and Computer Engineering – YEF-ECE 2022.

Electrical engineers apply electrical and electronic theory to obtain solutions for problems related to the development, design and operation of electrical hardware and software, control systems, electrical machines and communications systems. Computer engineers are concerned with the design, development, and implementation of new and challenging computer technology in a myriad of consumer, industrial, commercial, and military applications. Besides development, design, operations, and research, electrical and computers engineers are typically involved in the manufacture, installation, and maintenance of computational devices, electrical and electronic equipment and systems employed by a wide variety of organizations that produce, use or provide services to such equipment, and ranging from tiny electronic devices to large complex systems.

The 2022 International Young Engineers Forum combines the latest developments and applied research in electrical and computer engineering, dealing with systems’ design and utilization, looking forward to efficient devices and systems with appropriate control algorithms to meet the needs of business and industry in a global economy. This event will be a unique opportunity for young engineers to connect with each other enabling experience sharing and becoming internationally active.

This event is hosted by the Electrical Engineering Department of the Faculty of Sciences and Technology of Nova University of Lisbon (Portugal) and will provide an excellent forum for young engineers to present their work to a new audience and discuss future trends of their profession.

Young engineers / graduating MSc students are encouraged to submit manuscripts with their latest innovative developments in Electrical and Computer Engineering, based on their MSc theses or early career projects. Each submitted paper shall be jointly co-authored by a young engineer and his/her supervisor or mentor. The International Young Engineers Forum’s Program Committee will review all submitted full papers and will select the best for presentation based on their innovative and original contribution to engineering solutions. Evaluation of papers is double-blinded and based on the full text, considering the original scientific and technological contribution.

Prospective authors should submit a short abstract to the conference in advance, in order to check if the proposed topic fits within the conference scope.

YEF-ECE 2022 will be co-located with the doctoral conference DoCEIS 2022 ( giving participants the opportunity to attend both events on the same day.

The Conference will be held in Caparica (Lisbon region). Lisbon, the capital of Portugal with a population of one million inhabitants, is a modern city, which has a lot to offer both in terms of history, culture, and social life. It stands on the westernmost point of land of the European continent, where the Tagus river flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Its Atlantic climate, with some Mediterranean influences, is probably the mildest of all European capitals.

Due to the uncertainties related to the evolution of Covid-19 we consider the possibility of a hybrid event allowing remote participation only for those participants that are not legally allowed to travel.
