The main technical content presented at APEC comes from power electronics professionals just like you. The portals to submit your technical session paper digests, industry session proposals, and professional Education Seminar proposals to APEC 2025 are starting to open. Now is the time to start thinking about what you would like to present at APEC 2025.

APEC offers several different ways to present your work and research. First, one can write a formal paper that is published in the IEEE Xplore digital library and present your paper in a Technical Session. Papers for the Technical Sessions are peer reviewed so presenting a paper in a Technical Session is a significant professional accomplishment.

If you would like to present your work but do not want to write a paper, consider presenting in an Industry Session. Industry Session speakers only need to prepare a presentation. This is a great way to show your work without the effort of writing a full paper.

Third, experienced professionals can present either tutorials or new developments in a three-hour Professional Education Seminar. Preparing and presenting a seminar is a lot of work but results in a high level of professional recognition.

Whether writing a full paper for a Technical Session or a presentation for an Industry Session there are four basic steps for publishing success.

First, start out by describing the problem you are tackling. This could be improved efficiency or power conversion density. It could be a lower cost approach. It could be an easier way to model a circuit or design a controller. Whatever the objective of your work, describe clearly and concisely what it is you are trying to achieve.

Second, briefly describe how others have approached or attacked this problem in the past.

For Technical Session digests you need to show references to previous work. Generally you will want to provide six to eight references.

Third, describe how your work improves upon the previous results. Show enough of your analysis that the reader can easily follow your work but there is no need to show every detailed step of calculation. Simulation results can support your claims but what reviewers and readers really value is experimental results from real hardware. Show photos of your hardware and captures from oscilloscopes or network analyzers to document that you have achieved what you set out to accomplish. Make sure the figures, such as charts and graphs, are easy to read and well labeled.

Fourth, summarize the problem statement and the results. Discuss the significance of your findings. And finally, add a brief discussion of how future work could continue to make improvements.

No matter the work you wish to present or publish, these four steps are all you need for publishing success.

APEC 2025 is interested in papers, presentations, and seminars in any area of power electronics. To facilitate the review process digests and proposals must be assigned to one of APEC 2025’s Technical Areas Of Interest.
