Dear Colleagues:


We are excited to invite your attendance and participation at the 56th IAS Annual Meeting to be held in beautiful Vancouver BC Canada, October 10-14, 2021.

The IAS Annual Meeting has established a long tradition of providing a platform for practicing engineers, researchers, and technical experts to present and discuss current developments and future trends in applications of electrical technology to fields such as: electrical standards, industrial and commercial power systems, data centers, process controls, robotics and automation, electrostatics, mining, metals, smart grid, smart cities, and smart manufacturing.

The conference venue and meeting space is at the world-class Vancouver Convention Centre, a sparkling jewel of a facility located along the Vancouver waterfront. You can enjoy amazing views of the harbor and mountains in one direction and the city skyline in the other direction. The IAS Annual Meeting will be co-located with the 2021 Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition (ECCE). IAS Annual Meeting delegates are invited to attend some selected ECCE activities, such as the Monday Plenary Session and the ECCE Technical Expo, which are open to attendees from both conferences. With such an expansive setting for our two conferences, there will be ample opportunities for attendees to enjoy social events and networking amongst other engineers, industry folks, academic faculty, and of course students.

Our “Call for Papers” with deadline dates has been posted on the IAS website at: It incorporates a “Call for Tutorials” as well. Please observe the specified due dates in Call for Papers for submitting your technical papers or tutorial proposals for this conference.
