The first edition was organized in 1993 (1993-Electro Workshop) in Liberec and its biennial form has led to the celebration of the 10th anniversary in 2011 (ECMS2011). The University of Mondragon (Spain) has joined the organization team in 2009. Due to the constant evolution, ECMS became an international event in 2011 (involving 10 countries). Since that time, the ECMS workshop has been co-sponsored by the Technical Council on VLSI (TCVLSI) of the IEEE Computer Society.

Previous ECMS Workshops were organized in Liberec РCzech Republic (1993-Electro Workshop), 1995, 1999, 2003, 2007, 2011, 2015), Toulouse РFrance (1997, 2001, 2005, 2013) and Mondragon РSpain (2009, 2017).
