IEEE Power Electronics Society announces the 1st Annual PELS Day Celebrations!
The IEEE Power Electronics Society invites you to celebrate PELS Day on June 20th, 2019. On this day, in 1987, PELS became a full-fledged society within the IEEE. What better way to commemorate this day, than to get together with your colleagues for technical discussions, presentations, or simply, an evening of networking and socializing?


How to celebrate?

You own your PELS Day event! The Power Electronics Society and the technologies it represents can be celebrated in more than one way. The society encourages local chapters, student branch chapters and other groups to get together and organize their own events around June 20th. This is also a great opportunity for the local chapters and student chapters to co-organize events.

Events could take the shape of:

- Seminars / technical talks
- Industry visits
- Student presentations
- Prototype / technology demonstration contests
- Social events
- Webinar
- Invite Distinguished Lecturer

 Also, please take a lot of pictures from your event! We plan to reward the best ones.
