XIV CEI Annual Meeting

The XIV CEI Annual Meeting wwill take place in the ETSII-UPM on June 15th-17th, 2022. As in previous years, the main objective of this event is to present the CEI activities related to both industrial and academic partners. Thus, the Annual Meeting is an interesting networking space, a place to learn and to meet your colleagues and partners.

In this edition, we dedicate a special session to a topic of interest today: “Open Hardware & RISC-V“.

Moreover, the following topics will be also addressed:

  • Advanced Power Electronic Converters and Systems
  • Embedded Intelligence, IoT and Reconfigurable Systems
  • Emerging Applications
  • Modeling, Caracterization and Simulation of Components and Power Converters

During this edition, we have more than 30 posters in different state-of-the-art research lines, as well as several technical oral sessions from CEI researchers and our partners.
