The Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) and its sponsors, the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS), the IEEE Industry Applications Society (IAS} and the Power Sources Manufacturers Association (PSMA) are pleased to announce that APEC 2021 will now be held from June 9-13, 2021.
The conference had previously been scheduled to take place in March. The location of APEC 2021 will remain, as originally planned, at the Phoenix Arizona Convention Center. The decision to change the dates of the conference was made after much consideration between sponsors, the city of Phoenix and other stakeholders. By moving the “The Premier Global Event in Applied Power Electronics” to June, the leadership team believes that it will be in a better position to host a safer and more successful in-person event. The committee will continue to assess public health and safety matters in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and will make any further adjustments, if necessary, in a timely manner.
With the change of dates, the organizing committee has reopened the submission process for Technical Papers, Industry Session Presentations and Professional Education Seminars. The revised submission deadlines are as follows:
Technical Sessions November 27, 2020
Industry Sessions November 23, 2020
Professional Education Seminars November 23, 2020
Those who have already submitted to the conference will not need to re-submit but may amend or update previously submitted digests. The annual APEC event traditionally takes place from Sunday through Thursday. Next year’s rescheduled event will begin with Plenary Sessions on Wednesday and continue through Saturday. Detailed updates about the conference schedule, submissions, hotel and travel, other conference-related events, and registration will be posted to the conference website at www.apec-conf.org when they become available.
