SPITSE Symposium 2015

NEW! Final Programme of the Conference is available!


The project SPITSE is the trilateral Strategic Partnership of engineering science departments of Ilmenau University of Technology (Germany), St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University "LETI" (Russia), and the National Research University "Moscow Power Engineering Institute" (Russia) for joint education and research.

The project SPITSE was launched in March 2013 and has been implemented with a support of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

The International Scientific Symposium "Sense. Enable. SPITSE." is the main annual event of the Strategic Partnership. The Symposium combines a Scientific Conference and a Summer School for young researchers.

The first SPITSE Symposium was held in Ilmenau in July 2014 and manifested the tremendous progress in the development of the Strategic Partnership. About 70 papers were presented at the Sсientific Conference, including 17 invited ones.


After the last year success, the Second SPITSE Symposium is organized in Russia in the beautiful city of St. Petersburg.


The Symposium will be held in St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University "LETI" (5 Prof. Popov str., St. Petersburg, Russia). The University is located in the downtown of St. Petersburg close to the most attractions the city is famous for.

Petrogradskaya metro station is the nearest metro station to the university. This map shows the walking route from Petrogradskaya metro station to the university.

The Conference sessions will be held in the buildings n.5 and n.3.


The official language of the Symposium is English.
