APEC Issues Call for Participation for February 2009 Conference in Washington, DC

The IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC), the leading worldwide conference and exhibit for practicing power electronics professionals, is soliciting papers and presentations for its 24th annual event to be held at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC, February 15-19, 2009.

As the world places a growing importance on energy efficiency, power electronics remains an enabling and important topic. With this in mind, the APEC conference committee issues its combined call for papers and participation.

Deadline for submission of paper digests is July 19, 2008. In addition, APEC invites participation in technical seminars, special presentations or serving as a reviewer of submitted papers. Additionally, industry practitioners are sought to teach a session as part of the conference’s popular Professional Educational Seminars.

According to Kevin Parmenter, APEC 2009 General Chairman, “The hallmark of the APEC conference continues to be presentations of new and unique peer-reviewed technical papers covering all aspects of power electronics, combined with plenary sessions with viewpoints of critical issues in our industry.”

Abstracts will be peer reviewed by an expert committee, and presenters will be informed of paper acceptance on October 3. All accepted abstracts, papers and presentations will be published in the conference CD and Web Proceedings following the conference.

Industry practitioners are invited to share their ideas, experience, strategies or technologies in power electronics by presenting a paper or by teaching a course in the Professional Education Seminars. Companies exhibiting at APEC can present an exhibitor seminar. They are also encouraged to submit a paper for the technical program and Special Presentation Sessions and sign up to review submitted papers.
