The folks in New Orleans like to say, “laissez le bon temps rouler,” that is “let the good times roll.” And that certainly holds true for all of us in the power electronics industry.
Never in the history of electronics has power conversion been more in the forefront. Efficiency is a top priority of nearly every new design. And the latest advances in technology are touching virtually every aspect of our industry, from passive components to semiconductors and packaging. And there just isn’t anywhere else on earth our industry comes together so completely to learn, connect and grow than at the Applied Power Electronics Conference. So, get yourself ready to let those good times roll at APEC 2020 in New Orleans next March.
The Call-for-Papers closed in July with over 1,000 digests submitted. Now the committee and over 100 volunteers have the task of peer-reviewing all of the digests in preparation for selecting the top 500+ papers for the program. In addition, a full roster of Industry Sessions will provide attendees with insights into the latest products and technologies from our Industry partners.
Work continues in development of the Plenary Session program. The Plenary Session is expected to bring well over 2,000 attendees. In addition, IEEE.tv will, once again, be streaming the entire session, live, for those who can’t make it to APEC by Monday afternoon.
At APEC 2019. Over 1500 attendees arrived early to take advantage of the weekend and Monday morning Professional Education Seminars. The committee is planning for a repeat of this attendance in 2020.
The exhibit area for APEC 2020 has been expanded and it looks like the exhibit hours will be extended on Tuesday. As always, the APEC exhibits will be buzzing with the latest innovations to make your design job successful.
Registration opens the week of October 28th. Go to www.apec-conf.org to get all the information you need. In addition to making your reservation to attend, you will also be able to book your hotel accommodations. APEC has secured blocks of rooms at the close-in hotels to the convention center. As usual, these rooms will sell out long before next March.
The entire APEC Conference Committee is excited about bringing our Premier Global Event in Applied Power Electronics to New Orleans, March 15-19, 2020. Laissez le bon temps rouler!
