Rui Chibante, docente do Departamento de Engenharia Electrotécnica do ISEP, é responsável pela organização de uma sessão especial da International Conference on Power Electronics and Power Engineering (ICPEPE 2010), que irá decorrer em Março de 2010, no Rio de Janeiro. A sessão especial, subordinada ao tema Optimization Methods – Algorithms and Applications on Power Electronics, tem aberto o convite à submissão de artigos, até 31 de Outubro próximo.

This special session invites papers discussing recent advances in the development and application of optimization algorithms, particularly stochastic optimization algorithms, to the field of power electronics and power engineering. The emphasis is on developing techniques and procedures based on optimization that supports the design, control or simulation of power electronic systems. Some algorithm examples are: Simulated Annealing (SA), Tabu Search (TS), Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Ant Colony Optimization (ACO), etc.

Papers for this special session must be emailed to rmc@isep.ipp.pt by October 31, 2009.
Paper submissions should be full papers of about eight pages. Please consult the conference website for formatting instructions.
All papers submitted to this special session will be double-blind peer reviewed. The special session organizer makes the final decision on the acceptance or rejection of the paper.

Rui Chibante received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical and Computers Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering of Porto University, Portugal, in 1999. In 2006 received the Ph.D. degree in Science Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering of Porto University, Portugal.
He is currently a professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Polytechnic Institute of Porto, School of Engineering (ISEP/IPP) developing his research activities within the Industrial Electronics group of the Institute for Systems and Robotics (ISR-Porto). His research interests include modeling and simulation of power electronic devices, fuel cells and heuristic optimization techniques. He is a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
