Industry Sessions facilitate the presentation of even more content and perspectives for various industries.This track runs in parallel with the traditional Technical Sessions Track.Speakers are invited to make a presentation only, without submitting a formal manuscript for the APEC Proceedings.This allows APEC to present information on current topics in power electronics from sources that would not otherwise be present at an industry conference.While many of these sessions are technical in nature, some also target business-oriented people such as purchasing agents, electronic system designers, regulatory engineers, and other people who support the power electronics industry.
APEC professionals like you participated in a rigorous peer review process to select APEC’s Technical Sessions.The review process highlights the most innovative technical solutions, and provides the highest quality possible.The technical program includes papers of broad appeal scheduled for oral presentation from Tuesday morning through Thursday afternoon.Papers with a more specialized focus are available for discussion with authors at the dialogue session on Thursday.The various technical venues cover all areas of technical interest to the practicing power electronics professional.The papers are sure to give you many new design ideas that you can apply to your work immediately.
