Abdelkrim Benchaib Conference General Chairman

EPE’20 ECCE Europe going Virtual to build the future

Dear ladies and gentlemen,
Dear guests, colleagues and friends,
Dear participants,

The COVID-19 crisis is present everywhere on the planet, leading to travel restrictions and confinement in many countries and in whole continents. Of course, our thoughts are with all those who have been directly impacted by the virus in this unprecedented situation.

Under these force majeure circumstances, we have decided to turn this crisis into an opportunity and organize THE Virtual EPE ’20 ECCE Europe. 

  • It will not be just a conference turning virtual in order not to cancel.
  • It will not be just another boring on-line exchange.
  • It will ask for your participation.
  • It will put you in the heat of the discussion.
  • It will request a lot of concentration from you.
  • It will give you access to a huge information base for one year after the Conference.
  • It will save you travel time and cost.
  • And last but not least, students who are not authors will enjoy a specially low registration fee.

So, it is my great honour and pleasure to announce that the virtual 22nd European Conference on Power Electronics and Applications will take place from the 7th to the 11th of September 2020.

The Local Committee has steadily walked the very long path to this conference…

Meeting several challenges, our organizing team is working very hard to offer you a one of the kind experience. We carefully chose the Whova® platform to support our event, offering you enhanced discussion and networking capabilities.  Zoom® channels will ensure large audience discussion stability and smaller meetings will be possible using the channels of your choice. Participants, guests and organizers, we all are pioneers of this first virtual EPE ECCE Europe conference.  On behalf of the organizing committee and myself, I would like to thank you all for your support and invite you, ladies and gentlemen, dear colleagues and guests, to join us from September 7 to 11 at EPE 2020 ECCE Europe, and to make it a real success.

The EPE ECCE Europe conference is the largest in its field, attracting experts from numerous different countries every year to join in the discussions. With the objective to exchange and meet fellow professionals and academics, the EPE ECCE Europe conference brings together researchers, engineers, etc. working at the forefront of power electronics technologies. For this type of event, where the future role of power electronics in this ecological revolution will be explored, the EPE ECCE Europe conference is one of the privileged places. There will be the opportunity to discuss a vast number of subjects during EPE ‘20 ECCE Europe, not only during the virtual lecture and dialogue sessions of the conference, but also at the virtual exhibition, industrial forums and tutorials… and why not a virtual coffee meet-up?

The Virtual EPE ’20 ECCE Europe should set new standards for this kind of event. Let’s meet on-line to work on the future!
