NEWS & EVENTS
Join CPES at ECCE!
Sep 26, 2023
The IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE) is the premier conference for the exchange of cutting-edge research and developments in the field of energy conversion and power electronics. With such significant overlap between the ECCE purpose and the CPES mission, it is little wonder that our center's participation is conspicuous.
CPES will be well-represented at ECCE this year. Not only will we have a booth at the Expo - stop by and
see us at #501! - but our students' research will be on display through 14 presented papers and 7
posters during the conference. CPES faculty are also quite active whether moderating panels or co-
leading tutorials and special sessions.
However, the most anticipated event will almost certainly be the Luminaries Special Session, an
extraordinary gathering of distinguished scholars, researchers, and industry leaders from around the
globe coming together to acknowledge the profound legacy of CPES founder Prof. Fred C. Lee.
We hope to see you at ECCE!
