The Ninth IASTED International Conference on
~ PES 2007 ~

January 3-5, 2007
Clearwater, Florida, USA

The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
# Technical Committee on Power and Energy Systems

The next generation of power systems must change and adapt to environmental factors, customer concerns, and reliability issues. The environment will be either a catalyst for or an obstacle to future electrical development, and customer-centred concerns will be a driving force for new concepts in demand participation. Additionally, recent and ongoing challenges related to blackouts and power quality problems in many parts of world must be solved with innovations in controls, devices, and infrastructure. Disasters of wide-scale proportion must be mitigated and our energy systems must expand rapidly in order to meet the growing demand for electrical energy.

The IASTED International Conference on Power and Energy Systems (PES 2007) will create an international forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange new ideas and practical experience in the areas of energy and power systems. PES 2007 will strengthen relations between the energy sector, research laboratories, and universities. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

PES 2006 will be held in Clearwater, Florida. Clearwater lies directly between the vibrant Tampa Bay metropolitan area and the warm, clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Visitors can spend their days enjoying the sun, sipping a cool beverage and relaxing on some of America’s best beaches. Whether they choose the sands of Fort Desoto Park, Caladesi Island, or the local Clearwater Beach, they are assured pristine coastlines, crystal clear water, and a beautiful environment. Clearwater is more than just white sand and palm trees. Nestled in the Pinellas Peninsula, it is also a gateway to diverse nature preserves and animated local arts, culture, and cuisine. Close to the Brooker Creek Preserve and the Weedon Island Preserve, visitors can explore thousands of acres of protected and unspoiled parks, learn about the unique collection of local flora and fauna, and travel along many miles of hiking and canoeing trails. At night, the famed Sunsets at Pier 6 party offers a unique street festival filled with local arts, live music, and street performers. For a more upscale evening, Tampa Bay’s historic Latin Quarter, one of three National Historic Landmark Districts, is the perfect place to enjoy the Gulf Coast’s fresh caught seafood and lively nightlife.
