ECCE 2017 Call for Papers • ECCE 2017 Call for Special Sessions • ECCE 2017 Call for Tutorials
ECCE is the foremost IEEE conference in the field of electrical and electromechanical energy conversion. It provides researchers, engineers and professionals from industry and academia with a convivial and innovative atmosphere for interaction and networking.
What can visitors do at ECCE?
Participate in a variety of technical sessions addressing various topics in power electronics and machine design, learn about new R&D and speak with experts in these areas, seek answers to technical challenges in their work.
What’s different about ECCE?
The combined focus on both power electronics and machines means that the conference addresses integrated energy systems more comprehensively. The conference also emphasizes higher power applications , above 1 kW, in critical areas such as automotive, industrial drives, renewable energy and other grid-connected applications.

Fun facts about ECCE:
- Attendance has grown from about 700 attendees at the first ECCE in San Jose in 2009 to over 1600 attendees this year in Milwaukee. (Editor’s note: Despite the growth, I find the conference maintains a very friendly atmosphere.)
- This year ECCE has received a record number of digest (paper) submissions-1715!
- Next year’s ECCE takes place in Cincinnati, Ohio--home to major companies in manufacturing, energy, IT and finance. The conference will be held at the ultramodern Duke Energy Convention Center.
