The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)

* Technical Committee on Energy and Power Systems


The Ninth IASTED European Conference on Power and Energy Systems (EuroPES 2009) will serve as a major forum for international researchers and professionals to present their latest research, results, and ideas in all areas of power and energy systems. EuroPES 2009 aims to strengthen relations between the power industry, research laboratories, and universities.

All papers submitted to this conference will be double-blind peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee and related technical committees. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, significance, technical soundness, presentation, and references. The conference chair makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper.

EuroPES 2009 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Applied Simulation and Modelling (ASM 2009)
* Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing (ASC 2009)


Coastlines of fine sand and clear water abound on the island of Mallorca, the commercial centre of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands. Mallorca is surrounded by the Serra Tramunta mountains, offering spectacular views of the varied landscape, including sheer cliffs that drop into the sea, cities of stunning architecture, and Es Raiguer, Mallorca's agricultural plain, where thousands of almond trees, orchards, and vineyards thrive. Palma de Mallorca, the capital city of Mallorca and the Balearic Islands, bustles with all types of tourist activities. Enjoy strolling through elaborate gardens, walking the medieval city walls, discovering breathtaking basilicas, cathedrals, and Arab baths dating back to the thirteenth century, or visiting the many art galleries that the city has to offer. If you find your way to the Paseo Maritimo, you can join the Mallorcan locals at the Club de Mar for exciting yachting adventures. After dark, the quaint bistros, traditional Spanish bars, and small jazz and blues clubs will charm their way into your fondest memories.
