APEC 2008 Scheduled, Calls for Papers
Austin, TX — The 23rd annual IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC), the leading worldwide conference and exhibit for practicing power electronics professionals, is to be held in Austin, Texas, February 24-28, 2008.

The show organizers are soliciting papers and presentations. The deadline for submission of paper digests is July 20, 2007. Papers are wanted in the following topic areas: "AC-DC Power Supplies" — single and multi-phase AC-DC power supplies, power factor correction, multi-level active front-end conversion; "DC-DC Converters" — low voltage to low voltage conversion, high voltage, high power (kW to MW), microprocessor power (VRMs); "DC-AC Inverters" — DC to single phase, DC to multi-phase, multi-level inverters; "Motor Drives" — for induction machines, permanent magnet machines, switched reluctance machines, etc. "Power Semiconductors, Energy Storage Components, and Sensors; "Energy Storage Components" — including magnetics, capacitors, batteries and chargers; "Mechanical Components" — including connectors, bus bars, substrates, thermal management; "Physical Design and Packaging" — topics including thermal management, integration of design tools, physical design, packaging, EMI and EMC; "Modeling, Simulation and Control" — of power supplies, electric machines and drives, power systems; "Applications and Systems" — power systems in automotive, aerospace, electronics , military, lighting, alternative energy, UPS, power generation, transmission and distribution; "Business Issues" — such as marketing, manufacturing, quality, test, standards and regulations.

In addition, APEC invites participation in the form of technical seminars, special presentations, or serving as a reviewer of submitted papers. Suggested topics for the extremely popular and lively "rap sessions" are also invited.

APEC, jointly sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Power Electronics Society (PELS), the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS) and the Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA), is noted for presenting top- quality, peer-reviewed, non-commercial papers of practical importance related to the design and application of power electronics.

According to Steve Pekarek, the General Chairman for 2008, "APEC 2007 set records for attendance and presentation of over 300 peer- reviewed papers. In all, over 1000 different companies, government agencies and universities from 32 countries were represented. In 2008, we return to Austin and expect to once again break records for attendance and participation."
