It is my honor and a true privilege to invite you to attend the 16th IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE 2024), taking place in Phoenix, Arizona, from October 20-24, 2024. ECCE is proudly sponsored by both the IEEE Industrial Application Society (IAS) and IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS).
ECCE 2023 set a remarkable precedent, boasting a vibrant conference that set new records in attendance and participation. The event was innovative on numerous fronts, notably its multifaceted technical program. Building on this success, ECCE 2024 will feature two-page Late Break Research Briefs, Post-Journal paper presentations, and the standard technical papers. It will also offer special sessions on emerging technologies and industry-oriented topics, and of course, tutorials, which have become a staple element of the ECCE technical program. Lastly, stimulating, thought-provoking plenary talks by renowned industry and academic world leaders and experts will complete what is expected to be an overall sound program.
Similarly, the Exhibition promises to be another great success this time around, taking advantage of Phoenix’s burgeoning reputation as one of the top-10 fastest growing tech hubs in the United States. ECCE 2024, to be held in the “Silicon Desert,” will once again offer an excellent platform to showcase new startups and established power industry companies, as well as universities and research institutions, to the more than 2,400 attendees that are expected. The new Career Fair will further catalyze interactions, giving exhibitors and attendees the possibility to get connected and to hire the best in the electrical engineering and power electronics fields. We certainly hope that exhibitors will have a prime opportunity to elevate their presence and to make a lasting impact on what is expected to be a most dynamic audience.
Lastly, the technical program chairs have been busy at work revising the scope and list of major topics for ECCE 2024, ensuring that a strong emphasis is placed on advanced cutting-edge power and energy conversion technology. As a result, ECCE 2024 will feature a unique blend of scientific and technology development research and innovations; from materials and components, to power converters, electrical machines, electrical transportation, controls, and digital systems, all the way to the power grid and future electrical and electronic systems. Energy and power conversion have become vital enabling technologies to society, and ECCE 2024 will strive to capture their interdisciplinary nature providing a formidable platform from where to present their state of the art to the world.
So, whether you are looking to challenge yourself intellectually, immerse yourself in the latest technological developments, or to simply reconnect with friends and colleagues, mark your calendars and get ready to attend a great conference, and to enjoy sunny Phoenix this coming fall. We will be waiting for you.
