Change to Virtual Presentations due to COVID-19 Concerns

The IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES), Industrial Applications Society (IAS) and IEEE Kenya Section are pleased to announce Call for Papers for the 2020 IEEE PowerAfrica Conference to be held virtually from August 25th -28th, 2020.

After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant governmental and health authorities, we are pivoting from an in-person event and adopting a fully virtual format.  The dates and schedule for the meeting are unchanged, namely 25-28 August 2020, but all activities will take place on-line.  Information of the virtual platform will be confirmed shortly.

Authors who had submitted papers:

If you have already submitted your paper, you do not need to do anything at the moment.  In due time, if your paper is accepted, we will provide you information on how you will present your paper to the PowerAfrica community.  Authors will need to adhere to the same guidelines for presentation as part of the virtual event to be permitted publication within IEEE Xplore.

Authors who had not yet submitted papers:

If you have not submitted your paper yet, we are extending the deadline to June 20th, 2020 to accommodate disrupted schedules, as well as to welcome individuals who can now publish without a need to travel and at a lower registration cost than the onsite conference.

Benefits of Publishing with IEEE

Authors will find that publishing with IEEE ensures professional development and exposure of their work because of the following reasons.

IEEE Reputation

IEEE has over 400,000 professional and student members who will shape technology for years to come. You will become part of IEEE’s stellar reputation and 125-year history of innovation.

Optimized visibility

Researchers rely on IEEE for trusted information. IEEE maintains active partnerships with abstracting and indexing providers such as Elsevier, Clarivate, ProQuest, IET, and NLM to maximize the discovery of author works.

Opportunities to publish

IEEE’s comprehensive selection of approximately 200 journals, transactions, magazines, and more than 1,900 conferences around the world allow authors to publish in the best forum for their work.

Peer review

The peer-review process is designed to ensure the high quality of every article submitted to and published by IEEE and is required before acceptance for publication or presentation.
The author benefits from peer review feedback, while the reader or conference attendee is assured strong and credible research.

Streamlined publication

IEEE’s web-based workflow, including electronic submission has shortened the time from submission to IEEE publication and helps authors track a paper’s progress.

Editorial development

Tools are available to help manage your workflow and make it easier to collaborate, reference, publish, and deliver your writing to readers and researchers.

Trusted content

Consistent quality and high demand make IEEE publications trusted sources for researchers in corporations, academia, and government.

IEEE journals and conference proceedings receive nearly three times the patent citations of competing publishers, which gives IEEE authors a distinct mark of credibility within their field of interest.

Referencing and searching

As a member of CrossRef, IEEE Xplore articles include outbound reference links to other publisher content registered in the CrossRef system. IEEE Xplore is indexed by Google™, allowing Google search results to include links to IEEE Xplore.
