FOREWORD FOREWORD

Foreword
It is my utmost pleasure to welcome you to the 29th IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference and Exposition – APEC 2014 at the Fort Worth Convention Center, Fort Worth, Texas. For more than a quarter century, APEC has not only established itself as the leading power electronics conference and exposition, but also evolved as an annual festival for applied power electronics professionals. APEC provides an ideal environment for technical exchange, networking, and exposure of the colorful local culture.
Following its predecessors, APEC 2014 offers a rich and comprehensive program for all power electronics professionals. The exposition hits its record high participation with 221 exhibitors and 337 booths. These global exhibitors will showcase the state-of-art technologies, products, and solutions on applied power electronics.
The technical sessions are selected from a base of 949 digest submissions from 38 countries, by experts from both industry and academia with diversified topics. The plenary session will cover transforming energy management, power electronics in emerging applications, critical power solutions, high efficiency power conversion, 3D packaging of power products, and system reliability and efficiency. 80 industry session presentations make another record for APEC 2014. The popular topics will attract considerable attention from broad audience. This year’s rap sessions will focus on smart infrastructures and wide band gap materials. The 18 excellent educational seminars will offer a variety of attractive topics on Devices, Fundamentals, Emerging Technologies, Design, Modeling, and Control. Last but not least, the social event of Jersey and Jeans Party on Wednesday night will complete a full package for technical exchange and networking.

CONFERENCE AND EXPOSITION

Fort Worth is part of a large cultural and economic Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington region. Located in northern Texas, this historic Army outpost overlooks the Trinity River. The average high temperature in March is 68°F (20°C), which I hope will lead to pleasant weather and evening walks during your stay. The Convention Center is surrounded by the city’s characteristic art deco architecture and numerous fine restaurants I am sure you will enjoy. Also, since Fort Worth is near a major airport hub, I hope you will find transportation for the conference convenient.
Finally, APEC 2014 has been made possible by tremendous support from our sponsors, organizing and steering committee members, reviewers, and volunteers. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you.
Regards,
Haidong Yu General Chair IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference 2014

CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS CONFERENCE HIGHLIGHTS

Conference Highlights
Plenary Session
APEC 2014 Plenary is designed to cover the history of power, the current needs in energy efficiency and the future possibilities. Topics include: Transforming Energy Management; Power Electronics in Emerging Applications; Mission Critical Power: Past, Present and Future; ARPA-E Initiatives in High Efficiency Power Conversion; Significant Developments and Trends in 3D Packaging of Power Products; and finally System Reliability vs. Efficiency: Are we being Redundant?. Come see where Power technology has been, and where it is heading.
Professional Education Seminars
APEC is the premier event in applied power electronics. The APEC Program addresses a broad range of topics in the use, design, manufacture and marketing of all kinds of power electronics equipment. If you are in the power electronics business, here is why you should make APEC a regular part of your career development: The combination of high quality professional education seminars, a full Program of refereed papers and an overflowing Exhibit Hall consistently provides an invaluable education each year. The value of APEC to working power electronics professional is shown by the ever growing number of participants.
Technical Seminars & Sessions
APEC Industry professionals just like you participated in a rigorous peer review process and have carefully picked 534 papers making up APEC’s Technical Sessions. This process eliminates the commercial content from the technical sessions, and provides the highest quality possible. The technical Program includes papers of broad appeal scheduled for oral presentation from Tuesday morning to Thursday afternoon. Papers with a more specialized focus are available for discussion with authors at the Dialogue Sessions on Thursday at 11:30a.m. The various technical venues cover all areas of technical interest to the practicing power electronics professional. The papers are sure to give you many new design ideas that you can return home with and apply to your work immediately.

The sessions were selected through a rigorous peer review process and are represented by papers in the APEC Proceedings. Each digest was evaluated using an author-blind process by at least three members of the Program Committee, volunteers from all over the world with expertise in the area of the specific digest.
Industry Sessions
Speakers are invited to make a presentation only without submitting a formal manuscript for the APEC Proceedings. These sessions have been very popular. The target audience for these sessions differs from the engineers in typical technical sessions and may include business oriented people such as purchasing agents, information technologists, regulatory agencies, and other people who support the power electronics industry. These sessions were previously called “Special Presentation Sessions”.
These industry sessions will not have papers in the APEC Proceedings and will be available online after the conference concludes at www.apec-conf.org.
Rap Sessions
We have two exciting and contentious topics lined up for this year. Admission to all Rap Sessions is free with an Exhibits Only registration and free refreshments will be available.
Exhibitor Seminars & Exposition
Looking for answers to the problems that are waiting for you when you get back to the office or lab? The APEC Exhibitor Seminars may have the answers you are looking for. These half hour presentations give you a more in-depth look at an Exhibitor’s products or services than you can get by just dropping by their booth. With presentations on so many topics, you are sure to find several of interest. The seminars will be held Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.
Entrance to the Exhibition is open to all conference attendees, including holders of the free Exhibits Only registration!
