Top Electrical Engineering Conferences to Attend in 2014 Sheldon Armstrong October 23, 2013 Events As an electrical engineer or a student studying electrical engineering, you are a member of a community that creates many of the amazing technological tools we use today. This creativity is driven by the innovation of electrical engineering professionals around the globe; staying abreast of this innovation is key to being the best electrical engineer. One of the best ways to grow as a professional in this field is to attend electrical engineering conferences, in addition to achieving higher education such as electrical engineering graduate courses online. Having a thorough understanding of the field is imperative if you wish to succeed. What better way than to fully immerse yourself in additional courses, networking opportunities and hearing the experts speak on up-to-date technology? Below are five of the best electrical engineering conferences happening in 2014 around the globe. Here’s why you should be there. IEEE Northwest Energy System Symposium (NESS) With a goal of disseminating electrical engineering best practices for tackling today’s energy issues, the 2014 NESS will educate you about all of the latest renewable energy, smart grid and end-use application technologies. As renewable energy technologies are evolving and spreading daily, this conference is a must attend for all electrical engineers. This conference will be taking place at The University of Washington in Seattle, Washington, USA from April 30, 2014 to May 1, 2014. International Conference on Technological Advances in Electrical, Electronics and Computer Engineering (TAEECE) Held at the Asia Pacific University of Technology and Innovation and backed by the Society of Digital Information and Wireless Communications (SDIWC), the 2014 TAEECE will update you on the newest technologies and inform you about improvements of current ones. The 2014 TAEECE is from March 18-20, 2014 in Kuala Lampur, Malaysia International Conference on Machine Learning, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering (ICMLEME) This 2014 electrical engineering conference is geared towards the international sharing of industry advances, best practices and general knowledge. Industry professionals are welcomed by the ICMLEME leadership to submit informational papers, abstracts and posters for dissemination during the conference. This is a wonderful opportunity to share information with and learn from the industry’s top engineers. The 2014 ICMLEME is hosted by and held at the International Institute of Engineers in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The dates are January 8-9 2014. Asia-Pacific Conference and Electrical Engineering (APSEE) The 2014 APSEE serves as an interdisciplinary platform for electrical engineers of all types to discuss and share electrical engineering related research and findings. It is an open format style conference, so any electrical engineering professional with something to add will have a platform to speak to the group. This will be a great opportunity for the international electrical engineering community to enhance the profession through the sharing of knowledge. For 2014, the APSEE will be held from January 10-14 at the Asia-Pacific Education and Research Association in Seoul, South Korea. The International Conference on Electrical and Control Engineering (ICECE) Much like the APSEE and the ICMLEME, the 2014 ICECE will give global electrical engineering professionals the opportunity to share industry related knowledge in an open forum. Professionals can also submit articles containing pertinent information to their peer-reviewed journal, the International Journal of Automation and Power Engineering. This conference will be held from January 10-11, 2014 in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA Electrical Engineering Conferences Will be Happening All Year Although the events listed above are the most prominent electrical engineering conferences of 2014, they are not the only ones. Industry related conferences of all types are being held throughout the year. If you have specific information that you would like to share or discuss, or you would like to attend a conference with a unique format, then you may want to think about hosting your own conference. If you are an electrical engineer looking to hold your own industry professional conference, then you should consult the services of a university. To better educate their students the facilities of the top engineering universities are equipped with the latest and greatest engineering technology, so they will be prepared for any hands-on demonstrations or experiments that you would like to conduct during your conference.
