What’s ECCE?
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. Want a deeper look at the topics discussed at ECCE? See the ECCE 2022 Program

Who participates in ECCE?
Engineers representing a range of industries, national laboratories, and other organizations plus instructors, researchers and students. See the list of past attendees

Who exhibits in ECCE’s expo?
In general, the exhibit has traditionally showcased the offerings of power electronics and machine component vendors and design tools (with particular strength in the tools area.) It has also had strong participation from large OEM companies in the energy and automotive industries, plus select universities and organizations. See the list of past exhibitors

Who sponsors ECCE?
The IEEE’s Power Electronics Society (PELS) and the Industrial Applications Society (IAS). ECCE 2022’s corporate sponsors include Altair, General Motors, Ford, STMicroelectronics, Opal-RT Technologies, Torquemeters, imperix, Halla Mechatronics, Pelcko and

What does it cost to attend ECCE?
Registration rates for the conference vary depending on whether you are a member of a sponsoring IEEE society, an IEEE member, IEEE Life Member, or nonmember. Similarly, there are different fees for the ECCE tutorials; options for single-day registration, options for joint registration with the IAS meeting and guest tickets to selected events. If you just want to attend the expo, it is free both on Monday, October 10 from 4:00-7:30 pm and on Tuesday, Oct. 11 from 11:00 am - 5:30 pm. See 2022 conference rates.

Fun facts about ECCE:

  • Attendance has grown from about 700 attendees at the first ECCE in San Jose in 2009 to over 1800 attendees at ECCE 2019 in Baltimore, MD. (Editor’s note: Despite the growth, I find the conference maintains a very friendly atmosphere.)

Good Planning Made ECCE 2022 Productive For Attendees And Exhibitors
ECCE 2022, which was held October 9-13 in Detroit, marked my return to face-to-face events. It was also my first visit to ECCE. In this article, I share my observations on ECCE both as an attendee and as a person responsible for his company’s booth in the exhibition.

What participants say about ECCE

All in all, it seems that IEEE ECCE has hit its stride as a well-run and significant event in the power electronics industry. The conference is producing useful and practical power electronics information for working engineers to take back to the lab and use quickly, which after all is why we want to attend any event isn’t it?”—Kevin Parmenter, Taiwan Semiconductor

I do machines and electromagnetics and I interact with people in the drives world. But it’s really nice to walk into a conference where I can go to a session on smart grids or on devices. I will learn something about a new topic and maybe it’ll spark some ideas. This is the only conference where I feel I can get a broad spectrum of topics.”—Peter Wung

I’ve talked with some of my colleagues that are academics and they still feel it’s one of the best technical conferences in the field of power electronics and emerging technology.” -- Michael Harke
