Presentation of Conference Papers

The majority of accepted conference papers will be scheduled for presentation at the Monday evening poster session. Presentation of an accepted paper at the conference is a requirement of publication. Any paper that is not presented at the conference will not be included in IEEE Xplore.

Presentation of Select Conference Papers

The top 60 to 80 accepted conference papers will be selected to be presented in a Best Conference Paper Sessions on Monday afternoon. Author(s) will be allowed eight (8) minutes to present their paper and will be allowed to use a maximum of 6 PowerPoint slides, including the introductory slide. (Please note: No questions or discussion will immediately follow the presentations. The authors will be available for questions on their paper at the Monday evening poster session. Authors must prepare a poster for the session.) Authors will be notified if their papers are selected for this presentation. Up to 240 additional conference papers will be selected to be presented in Paper Forum Sessions on Tuesday through Thursday. Author(s) will be allowed four (4) minutes to present their paper and will be allowed to use a maximum of four (4) PowerPoint slides, including the introductory slide. A small poster session in the same room will immediately follow the presentations where the authors will be available for discussion on their paper. Authors must prepare a poster. Authors will be notified if their papers are selected for this presentation.

Prize Conference Paper

A few of the top 60 to 80 conference papers will be chosen and recognized as General Meeting Conference Prize Papers These papers and authors will be identified at the Monday night poster session and the authors will receive a letter of recognition.

Transactions Paper Presentations

An author of an accepted PES Transactions paper who is interested in presenting it at the 2025 PES General Meeting must upload the full paper, in addition to the paper’s abstract, to the online submission and review site by the deadlines listed above. The appropriate Technical Committee Program Chair (TCPC) will determine if the topic of the paper is suited for presentation in the Monday evening poster session. The author will be notified of the decision by email. No more than 125–200 transactions papers will be chosen for presentation at the General Meeting. (Please note: The author must follow the steps on the review site and upload the full paper in addition to the abstract. This is for the TCPC’s use only. The full paper will not be published in the Conference Proceedings. Do not upload the full paper as its own submission. It must be uploaded along with the abstract so there will be only one conference paper number.) Accepted Transactions papers that will be presented at the 2025 PES General Meeting will have their abstracts published in the Conference Proceedings.

Conference Registration

At least one author of each accepted conference paper or accepted Transactions paper for presentation must register for the meeting and pay the appropriate fee. Conference papers, or Transactions paper abstracts, will not be released for publication in the 2025 PES General Meeting Proceedings or scheduled for presentation unless the fee is paid. Note: Registration deadline for authors may be earlier than the general registration deadline. Additional information about the meeting will be posted as it becomes available on the conference web site at pes-gm.org.

Due to the ongoing challenging effects of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe, IEEE Power & Energy Society has issued the following statement.
The Power & Energy Society values diversity across all activities.  This diversity will lead to more creative, interesting, and representative scientific and engineering information within the electric power and energy field of interest.  Authors who anticipate the inability to travel to a PES-sponsored conference because of a government-imposed travel restriction are still encouraged to submit papers. Such papers will be reviewed and accepted on their own merit for publication in Conference Proceedings, without any knowledge of the author’s travel restriction. Within one week of paper acceptance notification, travel-restricted authors must notify the Technical Program Chair of the conference with proof of their restriction. Substitute presenters may be possible or, depending on conference resources, other accommodations may be available, such as a remote presentation or pre-recorded video.
Please email Maria Proetto, Senior Manager of IEEE Power & Energy Society Publications, with any questions or inquiries.
