The Tenth Annual IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE 2018) will be held in Portland, Oregon, USA on September 23 – 27, 2018. ECCE 2018 is the pivotal international conference and exposition event on electrical and electromechanical energy conversion field. ECCE 2018 will feature both industry-driven and application-oriented technical sessions, as expositions. ECCE 2018 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.

The ECCE organizing committee invites organizers interested in organizing Special Sessions. Such sessions consist of oral presentations only, without written papers and are strongly oriented towards the latest industrial interest, as well as the latest collaboration opportunities between industry and academia. Presentations may be of a more commercial nature than those related to the papers in the standard technical session  and the organization of the sessions are more malleable and could be in the form of
panel discussions. Audience participation and open source brainstorming session on focused topics are welcomed. Papers presented in special sessions are not subject to peer review and will not be made available in the conference proceedings. Presenters are encouraged to distribute their presentations through the conference mobile app.

Proposal Submission Guidelines: Special Session organizers are requested to submit a maximum five page proposal summarizing the proposed Special Session with 4 or 8 presentations. The proposal should contain the session title, session organizer, title of each presentation, presenter for each presentation (with a short biography) and a summary of each presentation. Please submit the proposal directly to ECCE 2018 Technical Program Committee Chairs via email at
