“Even though this is APEC’s 20th year, this is a year of firsts,” said Kevin Parmenter, Publicity Chairman for APEC 2005. “We have not one but many keynote plenary presentations from the leading executives in the power electronics industry representing such organizations as: DARPA, Dell, Fairchild, IR, TI and the US EPA Energy Star program office. We have a record number of 329 peer-reviewed papers presented by authors from 28 different countries-more than ever before. 129 other high quality papers with a more specialized focus have been assigned to the dialogue sessions held on Thursday at mid-day. These papers cover every possible area of interest to the practicing power electronics professional, from low power dc-dc converters to high power converters for power quality applications, magnetic design, EMI/EMC, motor drives, lighting applications, automotive and transportation applications, power systems, power semiconductors and more. If you have any involvement with power electronics be it technical or business you can't afford to miss APEC 2005.”

Special events at APEC 2005 include: the eighteenth annual MicroMouse contest on Monday evening, March 7th. The well-attended and lively “rap sessions” on Tuesday evening, March 8th and a special tour of the University of Texas Center for Electromechanics on Thursday evening, March 10th.
