Message from General Chairman

Home to 60% of the world’s total population and 70% of the world’s populous cities, Asia-Pacific continues to experience rapid growth in urbanization. Nevertheless, the acceleration of industrialization and urbanization, energy and environmental issues that seriously affects human survival and development have become the focus of the entire world. Among various kind of energy and environmental issues, air pollution is of the most public concern.

Given the above situation, finding a feasible approach to alleviate the air pollution carries enormous significance. In the transport sector, the use of renewable energies and electric vehicles (EVs) are being emphasized to tackle the energy and environmental issues. At the COP26 in Glasgow, Thailand brought the “Bio-Circular-Green” or BCG economic model, and reiterated that the country will be the pathway towards a paradigm shift to environmentally friendly economic development.

For Thailand and all nations, the importance of researching and knowledge sharing play vital roles to support the electrification revolution across the BCG economic model, including EV cars, electric ships and aircraft, rail systems, personal transport, storage, power grid, power electronics, electronic intelligence, and etc. With the supports of the IEEE Industry Applications Society, the IEEE Power Electronics Society, the IEEE Power and Energy Society and the IEEE Transportation Electrification Community to coordinate numerous activities, including the upcoming ITEC Asia-Pacific 2023 which will be held in Chiangmai during 28th Nov – 1st Dec 2023, we’re able to provide a key platform for academic paper presentation on many fascinating topics. In addition, there’ll be keynote speakers to talk about the role of motor drives and control in transportation electrification, electromagnetic vibration of electrical machines, theoretical analysis and optimal design, electrical power and propulsion and panel discussion on EV battery Reuse and Recycling as well.

We believe in new business models and future careers in the manufacturing of electric vehicles and the related EV ecosystem thus we support technological and knowledge sharing platforms, from professional levels to student levels in all educational backgrounds.  

We support the shift towards clean energy thus academic events are seen as highly important knowledge sharing platform for everyone in the industry and in educational institutions, to exchange our know-hows, hypothesis, inventions and viewpoints for on-going development in the new era of carbon-neutrality technology.

On behalf of the iTEC Asia-Pacific 2023 organizing committee, it’s our great pleasure in co-organizing this key event in Chiangmai, Thailand. At the same time, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome all delegates and participants at the iTEC-AP 2023, which I’m confidence that your participation and information exchange will contribute to the development of future mobility through bio-circular-green economy within Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and the world.
