Papers presented at APEC must be original material and not have been previously presented or published. The principal criteria in selecting digests will be the usefulness of the work to the practicing power electronic professional. Reviewers value evidence of completed experimental work. Authors should obtain any necessary company and governmental clearance prior to submission of digests.

Please visit the presenter guide for all details on digest and final manuscript format and to submit your paper.

If a digest is accepted, authors must submit a final manuscript before the deadline or the manuscript cannot be published in the Proceedings or presented at the conference.
