Call for Papers

SEPOC 2023 brings together academia and industry to discuss cutting-edge technologies in power electronics and control. This year’s theme is “Energy Transition: Driving Decarbonization Through Innovative Solutions and Technologies”, focusing on power electronics and distributed generation. The conference features panel and plenary sessions as well as technical papers presented in hybrid and poster sessions. This year, the conference special topics will cover:

i) The role of power electronics, distributed generation and intelligent electrical networks in decarbonization of the energy sector.

ii) Power electronics, control and electrical power systems in the context of electric mobility.

The Organizing Committee of SEPOC 2023 invites researchers worldwide to submit full papers written in English or Portuguese concerning their original research work to the Seminar.

The Conference scope covers three special tracks and the following general topics:

General Topics:

  • Power electronics – topologies and design;
  • Modeling and control of power electronics;
  • Electrical machines, control and drives;
  • Control theory and applications;
  • Power systems analysis, operation, control and protections;
  • Education and Entrepreneurship in Engineering;
  • Aerospace, Automotive and Telecommunication applications;
  • Intelligent systems and connectivity.

Special topics on energy transition:

  • Electrical mobility and infrastructure;
  • Distributed Energy Resources and energy efficiency;
  • Management, policy, and regulatory frameworks;
Research articles can be written in either Portuguese or English. Papers accepted and presented in Portuguese may be submitted to Manancial (UFSM), while those accepted and presented in English will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore online digital library*. *Authors who wish to publish their paper on IEEE are invited to submit regular papers in English. Additionally, the best papers (up to a maximum of 20%) will be recommended for submission to IEEE IAS journals. In this case, authors may choose to submit the full version of their paper for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, or submit a final abstract that will not be published in the library.
