Call For Papers


The 10th IASTED International Conference on
Power and Energy Systems
~PES 2008~

April 16 �?? 18, 2008
Baltimore, Maryland, USA

The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
Technical Committee on Power and Energy Systems

Dr. Ewald Fuchs �?? University of Colorado at Boulder, USA

The next generation of power systems must change and adapt to environmental factors, customer concerns, and reliability issues. The environment will prove to be either a catalyst or obstacle for future electrical development, and customer-centred concerns will be a driving force for new concepts in demand participation. Additionally, recent and ongoing challenges related to blackouts and power quality problems in many parts of world must be solved with innovations in controls, devices, and infrastructure. Wide-scale disasters must be mitigated. Energy systems must rely more on renewable sources, be very efficient, and have the capability to rapidly expand in order to meet the growing demand for electrical energy.

The 10th IASTED International Conference on Power and Energy Systems will create an international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experience in the areas of energy and power systems. PES 2008 aims to strengthen relations between the energy sector, research laboratories, and universities. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

PES 2008 will be held in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

One of the keywords must be taken from the list of topics provided under Scope. Initial paper submissions should be approximately six pages. Formatting instructions are available at:

All papers submitted to IASTED conferences must be previously unpublished and may not be considered for publication elsewhere at any time during IASTED's review period. Authors are limited to a maximum of three paper submissions. Authors are responsible for having their papers checked for style and grammar prior to submission to IASTED. Papers may be rejected if the language is not satisfactory.

Notification of acceptance will be sent via email by January 4, 2008. Final manuscripts are due by February 1, 2008. Registration and final payment are due by February 15, 2008. Late registration fees or paper submissions will result in the papers being excluded from the conference proceedings.

Final Papers
Send your final manuscripts via email to The subject line for the final manuscript submission must include your six-digit paper number. The formatting instructions can be found at and must be strictly followed. The page limit for final papers is six single-spaced pages in 10 point Times New Roman font. Only one paper of up to six pages is included in the regular registration fee. There will be an added charge for extra pages and additional papers.

Proposals for three-hour tutorials should be submitted online by November 15, 2007. Tutorials are to be submitted via the following website: A tutorial proposal should clearly indicate the topic, background knowledge expected of the participants, objectives, time allocations for the major course topics, and the qualifications of the instructor(s).

Persons wishing to organize a special session should submit a proposal via email to Proposals should include a session title, a list of the topics covered, and the qualifications and brief biography of the session organizer(s). Papers submitted to the special session must be received by November 15, 2007, unless otherwise stipulated by the Special Session Organizer. A minimum of five papers must be registered and fully paid in order for this session to be included in the conference program. More information on special sessions is available at
