CFP: INTELEC 2018 - Torino, Italy Oct 7-11 2018
INTELEC® is an international annual technical conference which, for the past thirty-nine years, has been the premier forum for the science and engineering of Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) energy systems.
Research and technical papers explore the needs and trends in the subject areas of power conversion, highly available and resilient mission-critical power infrastructure and energy storage. Topics include DC power plants, power architectures, converters, inverters, batteries, renewable and alternative power sources, grounding, physical and thermal designs, microgrids and building and equipment cooling systems. The 2018 conference will be held from October 7th to October 11th, 2018 in Torino, Italy at the Lingotto Conference Centre.
