Call for Papers (Final Hard Deadline June 20, 2022)

IECON 2022 is the 48th Annual Conference of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES), focusing on applications, manufacturing and theoretical concepts of advanced Industrial Electronic Systems. The conference has a wide scope and brings together, scientists, practitioners, industrials and inventors that apply Electronic concepts within an Industrial context. The objectives of the conference are to provide high quality research and professional interactions for the advancement of science, technology, and fellowship. Papers with new research results are encouraged for submission. The conference hosts regular sessions, interactive sessions, special sessions and tutorials.

The conference is scheduled to take place from Oct. 17-20, 2022.

As the world starts to understand how to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic and how to organize large events in a safe and secure way, we are preparing this conference to be a physical conference where we can safely meet and discuss the latest results in our research fields. The venue for this conference is the SQUARE congress center in Brussels at the heart of Europe.
