This page gives an overview of conferences and workshops organized or sponsored by the IPCSD.   Please check with each specific event website for more details, or the IAS website for a comprehensive list of events. Conference papers, like all IAS publications, are available for free to IAS members, electronically, on IEEE Xplore (join IAS – Only $20/year, $10 for students). The following is a high-level list of events the IPCSD Department is involved with.  If you are interested in helping organizing one or another of these events, launch your own, or are looking for IAS sponsorship, contact the Conference Steering Committee Chair.

Any paper actually presented at a conference sponsored or technically co-sponsored by IAS can be submitted for publication in the IAS transactions (or other journals co-sponsored by IAS).  Contact the transaction editor for more details.


ECCE 2020:  Energy Conversion Conference and Exposition

The five-day conference will be held in Detroit, Michigan, USA | October 11 – October 15, 2020.ECCE is the pivotal international conference and exposition event on electrical and electromechanical energy conversion field. ECCE 2020 Conference will feature both industry-driven and application-oriented technical sessions, as expositions. ECCE will bring together practicing engineers, researchers and other professionals for interactive and multidisciplinary discussions on the latest advances in various areas related to energy conversion.

Some tutorials presented at past ECCEs are on line on  ECCE tutorials


APEC:   Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition

This event is general held in the late winter, February or March, with typically over 5,000 attendees.   APEC has a long-standing tradition of addressing issues of immediate and long-term interest to the practicing power electronics engineer.   Preparations for the next edition, in Anaheim, California, USA (March 17-21, 2019) are underway.  APEC features the best power electronics exposition, includes professional development courses taught by world-class experts, presentations of peer-selected technical papers covering a wide range of topics, and time to network  and enjoy the company of fellow power electronics professionals.

Parts of past APEC programs are on line on, in particular keynote speeches in their entirety here. (see trailer)

ITEC:  International Transportation Electrification Conference (North AmericaAsia-PacificIndia, and Europe)

ITEC is a series of events focused on all aspects of transportation electrification, from accessory motors to battery charging, from ships to bicycles, aerospace to hybrid and electric vehicles.  It includes a number of conferences across the globe: ITEC in North America (typically in June;  was in Novi, MI, USA, last June and will be in Chicago, Illinois June 24-26, 2020); ITEC Asia-Pacific, on Jeju Island, Korea, May 8-10, 2019, with the theme:  “New Paradigm Shift, Sustainable E-Mobility”;  in Europe, in collaboration with the well-established Electrical Systems for Aircraft, Railway, Ship Propulsion and Road Vehicles conference (ESARS), ESARS-ITEC, (organized in 2018 by the University of Nottingham, UK); and, co-organized with SAE India, ITEC-India, set for Bangalore, Sept. 12-13, 2019.

Part of the  ITEC program is available on at:  link, specifically the keynote speeches in their entirety.



The Seventh Annual IEEE PES/IAS PowerAfrica Conference (PAC 2020) will be held in Nairobi, Kenya from August 25 to August 28, 2020. PowerAfrica is co-sponsored by the IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) and Industrial Applications Society (IAS). PowerAfrica 2020 is a premier conference providing a forum for research scientists, engineers, and practitioners to present and discuss latest research findings, ideas, and emerging technologies and applications in the area of power systems integrations, business models, technological advances, policies and regulatory frameworks for the African continent. The conference will feature keynote addresses and invited presentations by distinguished scientists and engineers.


ICEM :International Conference on Electrical Machines

A conference dating back to 1974, organized every other year in Europe by local engineering organizations, typically in September, with a special focus on electrical machines.  The 2018 edition in Alexandroupoli, Greece, was a great success.   The next event is scheduled for August 23rd-26th in Gothenburg, Sweden.
