Call for Papers

The beautiful city of Bath in the UK will host the 2nd IEEE Design Methodologies Conference on the 1st and the 2nd of September 2022, with virtual attendance possible. DMC is the flagship conference of the IEEE PELS Technical Committee 10, and its main goal is to promote new techniques and design methodologies in power electronics. It will give us a possibility to identify the challenges that are awaiting us and to discuss the potential of these new design and analysis paradigms in Power Electronics. The IEEE DMC will bring together the professionals from industry and research institutions with experience in Power Electronics, Design Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data-Driven Techniques, Measurement, Test & Verification, and Cyber Security to present and discuss their opinion, experience, needs and vision of future, with emphasis across the fields of Research, Education & Applications.

Digest Submission: Prospective authors are requested to submit a single column, single spaced digest no longer than five (5) pages summarizing the proposed paper. The digest will address the problem, the major results and its contribution in comparison with previous research works. It should include key equations, figures, tables, and references as appropriate, but no author names or affiliations. Digests not conforming to these requirements will be rejected without review. All digests will go through a double-blind peer review process to ensure a confidential and fair review. The papers presented at the conference will be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Please refer to the conference website for a detailed list of technical topics and the digest submission method.
