Our Rivers of Knowledge Bring You the Technology of Tomorrow
welcomes the 2002 IEEE IAS Annual Meeting back to our proud and “new” city.
The IEEE Industry Applications Society and the Pittsburgh Committee
invite you to attend the 2002 Annual Meeting and Technical Conference in
Pittsburgh. The theme of this year’s conference is “Our Rivers of
Knowledge Bring You the Technology of Tomorrow”.
Pittsburgh is home to 15 Universities and Colleges with over thirty
campuses, over half offer degrees in Engineering. Additionally, Pittsburgh is home to seven fortune five
hundred companies with plenty of research centers.
The area is overflowing with knowledge and the presentation of over 600
technical papers will complement that knowledge base. Papers presented at the IAS Annual Meeting become the useful
tools for Industry to develop and produce the new products and systems that help
keep them on the leading edge of technology. You are encouraged to participate in your choice of nine
different technical sessions that will cover topics in Electrostatic Processes,
Industrial Automation and Control, Production and Application of Light, Metals
Industry, Mining Industry, Industrial and Commercial Power Systems, Industrial
Drives, Industrial Power Converters, and Power Electronic Devices. Additionally,
the following Tutorials will be offered with credits that can be applied to
maintain PE Licenses:
Applying Drive Specifications to Systems
High Power IGBT Application Issues
Selection, Sizing, and Control of
Adjustable Speed Drives for Stressful and Fault-Tolerant Applications
Matching IGBTs and Gate Drive Circuits
for Motor Drive Applications
Theory and Application of High Frequency
Conference will begin on Sunday with several Technical Committee Meetings.
Each of the Committees within IAS survives because of the efforts of
those that volunteer their services. However,
the knowledge and experience gained by participating is priceless.
While you are in attendance, check out the program and consider joining
one of them. I am sure it will be
time well spent if you sit in as a “guest” at any of the Technical Committee
Meetings. And…the real rewards
come when you become an active participant!
Sunday evening, a Dinner Cruise is planned, all included in the Full Conference
Registration Fee. We anticipate
over 600 attendees for the cruise and as we navigate our three rivers, that will
surely create a “Rivers of Knowledge”!
This is a great time to “network”, meet new friends, renew old
acquaintances, or just take in the sights and lights of our beautiful city.
and join us for the 2002 Annual Meeting. Your
Pittsburgh Local Committee promises you will have the time of your life!
