We are now accepting submissions for 2025 PCIC Conference in Dallas, Texas.

Submit your abstract here.

The PCIC is the premier conference for practicing electrical engineers and other professionals that deals with electrical installations in the oil and gas industry. It is highly regarded for providing top-quality papers on various relevant subjects aimed at the all-important electrical industry.

Abstracts are being requested on topics related to the practical application of new electrical technology, standards, equipment, and systems of interest in the petroleum and chemical industries within the scope of the PCIC Technical Subcommittees. All papers must be “PCIC Presentation First” as original works that have not been previously presented. Papers will be subject to thorough technical and peer reviews. Papers accepted will be published in the conference record. Papers deemed appropriate may be directed to the IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications or the IEEE Industry Applications Magazine for additional publication.

The following information must be included with all paper proposals:

  1. Complete all pertinent information on the abstract collection webpage.
  2.  A maximum of five (5) authors per paper with a preference for four (4) or fewer authors per paper.
  3.  Post your abstract using unformatted text. Copying and pasting bullets or other special formatting may result in a less than ideal presentation.

Abstract interest polling by registered conference attendees this year will be performed prior to the Denver Conference via an online platform. After the interest levels are compiled, the General Subcommittee will select seven papers for the General program. The remaining abstracts will then be sent to the individual technical subcommittees based on the authors request for committee and topic prior to 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday during the conference. At that Technical Subcommittee’s meeting, prospective authors are invited to speak to their abstract.

If the paper is accepted, at least one author must register and attend the conference in 2025 to present the paper. Other co-authors attending must also register for the conference.
