The organisers of PCIM Europe’s conference have issued a call for papers. PCIM Europe is the leading event for the entire power electronics industry and its fields of application, usually characterized by their unique combination of a practise-oriented conference and exhibition.

PCIM will be held from the 16th-18th May 2017 in Nuremberg, Germany, aiming to demonstrate varied expertise, and provide the opportunity to exchange specialist knowledge, informing an international audience about the latest results and developments in the field of power electronics.

The conference will be held in English, covering a wide range of topics including recent developments on power semiconductors, passive components, thermal management products, energy storage, sensors and new materials, as well as systems. Drives in automation will continue to be a subject in 2017, providing experts with inspiring and wide-ranging subjects in the field of power electronics.

The ‘Call for Papers’ gives the go-ahead for experts from industry and academia to submit their papers on power electronics, and allow speakers to have the opportunity to present their latest results and developments within a lecture or poster presentation. With the deadline on 18th October 2016, experts should be quick to submit their papers, as the more fortunate selected papers will be included in the official PCIM Europe proceedings, as well as in the scientific databases of IEEExplore, Scopus, Compendex and IET Inspec Direct.

Outstanding papers will be recognised with awards; the winner of the ‘Best Paper Award’ will receive 1,000 Euros and the chance to participate at the PCIM Asia 2018 Conference in Shanghai.  Also, three ‘Young Engineer Award’ worth 1,000 Euro each are available, giving outstanding writers no older than 35 the opportunity to be awarded at the opening ceremony of the PCIM Europe conference on the 16th May 2017.
