Since 2004, APEC has featured a special presentation session, now called Industry Sessions that allows speakers to give a presentation without submitting a formal manuscript. That enables more authors to present their information.
APEC says that the Industry Sessions target not only engineers but also system engineers and architects, as well as business-oriented people including purchasing agents, information technologists, regulatory agency members, and people who support the power electronics industry.
APEC for 2013 is seeking contributions for these topics:
• Automotive (Comfort Electronics, Entertainment, Powertrain & Drive, Safety Electronics)
• Communications (Basestations, Cellular Handsets, Energy Efficiency/Green, Switches, Standards, VOIP)
• Computing (Datacenters, Energy Efficiency/Green, Notebook/laptops, PCs, Power over Ethernet, Routers, Servers)
• Consumer (Appliances, Display Electronics, Entertainment)
• Industrial (Aerospace/Defense, Alternative Energy/Energy Harvesting, Elevators/Escalators, Factory Automation, Forklifts/Golf Carts, HVAC, Medical Electronics, Standards, Vending)
• Portable/Handheld Electronics (Cellular Handsets, Web Tablets)
• Energy Harvesting
• Lighting Technologies
• Tools, Testing and Instrumentation
You are allocated 20 minutes plus 4 to 5 minutes for questions/discussion.
To submit a proposal for an Industry Session at APEC, prepare a 2-3 page digest that provides a summary of the presentation content (address topic and target audience). Include a short professional biography of the speaker.
The digest and biography should be formatted for American A sized paper (8.5 in. x 11 in.) with one inch margins on all sides. The preferred typefaces are Arial, Helvetica, Times or Times New Roman with a size of 12 points. The digest and speaker’s biography should be combined into one file in Adobe PDF format.
Upload your proposal PDF file online at http://apec2013-is.epapers.org no later than Friday, August 31, 2012 (author registration required). APEC will notify you by email no later than Monday, October 1, 2012 that your proposal has been accepted or declined.
Remember that speakers must also register for APEC and deliver the presentation in person. Additionally, make time to attend the speakers breakfast on the morning of your presentation. Final presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint format are due at the APEC office no later than December 10, 2012. For more information, please visit www.apec-conf.org.
