TC: 1 Power & Control Core Technologies

As appropriate, Technical Committees (TCs) will be active in all of PELS’s activities. This will include PELS conferences (such as ECCE, APEC, COMPEL, INTELEC) by providing representatives to their respective Technical Program Committees, by providing for professional review of submitted papers (by soliciting such assistance from among its membership) and by organizing mini-conferences, symposia, panels, short courses, tutorials, etc., as deemed appropriate by the Society and the Committee. Further, the TCs can individually organize workshops and conferences. Also, because of the broad nature of committee activities, collaborative sessions with other committees will be sponsored and heartily encouraged. As new technologies and application areas emerge, a TC will seek to address aspects of these topics relative to its charter, and work with both the Long Range Planning Committee.

Technical Committees will further support PELS journals, magazines, and standards activities by soliciting volunteers as authors and editors, submitting proposals, and identifying committee members from its membership. A TC will seek ways to increase active participation of its members in information exchange related to the charter of this Committee, such as: stimulating Feature Topics and Special Issues of PELS journals and magazines; and by sponsoring workshops, tutorials, short courses, panel sessions, etc. on special topics.
