Terms and condition to achieve PELS and IES discounts on the registration fee
The Organizing Committee agreed that the discount can be applied only to PhD students who will attend the PhD School. For this reason, discounts will be reimbursed after the PhD School week. It is not necessary to pass the ECTS final exam to achieve the discount.
For IES members: at the end of the European PhD School, the list of first 10 registered IES members, also attending the PhD School, will be send to IES for final approval. After, the full registration fee will be reimbursed directly via PayPal (in case of credit card payment) or bank transfer.

Agreement between IEEE IES and European PhD School
IEEE IES and ANAE (financial sponsor of the European Phd School) agree that first 10 registered PhD’s also member of IES, will receive a 100% discount of the European PhD School registration fee.
How to apply:
PhD School Organizing Committee will extract the list of IES member from the European PhD School registration database. In case the number of IES members is major than 10, the first 10 registered PhD will achieve the 100% discount.
Agreement between IEEE PELS and European PhD School
IEEE PELS and ANAE (financial sponsor of the European Phd School) agree that student members of the Power Electronics Society participating in the School and already registered in “early bird” shall receive a discount of € 50 per person for the School registration fees. Final registration fee in early bird for PELS members will be € 250,00.
For standard registrations (after March 15, 2019, registration fee of € 340,00), IEEE PELS and ANAE agree that student members of the Power Electronics Society participating in the School shall receive a discount of € 90,00 per person. Thus, the final standard registration fee for Power Electronics Society members will be again € 250,00 per participant.
How to apply:
All students can apply for PELS discount.
For no PELS members yet: the discount can be achieved by registering as PELS member on the IEEE website:
Once achieved the IEEE PELS students membership, it will be enough to send the membership number to the PhD School secretariat and ask for reimbursement of € 50 (for early bird) or € 90 (for standard registration). If not registered yet, this procedure will allow to pay directly the reduced fee of € 250,00.
For PELS members (students who indicated the IEEE PELS membership on the registration form): the European PhD School Secretariat will contact each PELS member for reimbursement of part of the registration fee.
This agreement is limited to a maximum number of students equal to 70.

Video of PhD School
The Venue: the Angevine castle sits in the heart of Gaeta. The lower part of the castle was built during the rule of House of Anjou; the upper section was constructed by order of Emperor Charles V. The tall tower rising from the castle is the home of the Royal Chapel. The Montagna Spaccata, or Split Mountain, offers panoramic views and has a church sitting at its base. Its 35 steps take you to the fissure in the mountain, which overlooks the ocean and surrounding countryside.
