ECCE is the foremost IEEE conference in the field of electrical and electromechanical energy conversion, co-sponsored by the IEEE Power Electronics Society (PELS) and the IEEE Industrial Applications Society (IAS).

The broad base, appeal and quality of ECCE are a testament to the cooperation and strategic planning of both IEEE societies. Since its first meeting in 2009, ECCE has been steadily growing in the scope, quality, and number of technical papers, attendance, participation and involvement of the industry.
