Call for Papers

IECON 2013 is the flagship conference of the Industrial Electronics Society, an international conference on industrial electronics, fast developing technologies and their applications. The objectives of the conference are to provide high quality research and professional interactions for the advancement of science, technology, and fellowship. IECON 2013 is being held concurrently with the 7th IEEE International Conference on E-Learning in Industrial Electronics (ICELIE 2013). Participation in both conferences just requires a single registration fee.

Submission of Papers

The working language of the conference is English. Submit the full paper as PDF following the IEEE layout requirements by using the templates given at the conference web page. Accepted and presented papers will be published in an IEEE Proceedings volume and will be included in IEEE Xplorer and indexed by EI Compendex. In addition, selected authors are encouraged to submit their papers for publication in the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Electronics or in the IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics.
