conference information

The Workshop on Wide Bandgap Power Devices  Applications (WiPDA Asia) sponsored by IEEE , provides a forum for device scientists, circuit designers, and application engineers share technology updates, research findings, development experience, and application knowledge. 

Technical Papers: Technical papers addressing all aspects of wide-bandgap power electronics are welcome. Technical oral sessions will be held May 18th-19th, 2018, and a poster session will be held as well. 2/3 of the technical papers will recommended to be published on “IEEE Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics”  (IF=4.27) through peer review process. 

Tutorials: Tutorials covering both device and application topics will be offered May 17th, 2018.

Keynote Sessions: Keynote sessions will be held May 18th-19th, 2018, in which leading experts from academia, industry, and research institutes will share their insights on technology developments and future trends. 

Panel Session: A panel session with leading experts from Chinese government agencies, industry, and academia will be part of the meeting.

Call for Exhibitions: A number of booths will be available for exhibition. 

All presented papers will be included in the conference proceedings and submitted to the databases of IEEE Xplore.
