Paper Submission Details

Submission Requirements

Anyone who wishes to present a paper at the 2025 IEEE PES Grid Edge Technologies Conference & Exposition must submit FULL papers to the online submission and review site once it opens on 10 March 2024. 

Papers identified as Part 1 and Part 2 will NOT be accepted. All papers must be submitted by 20 April 2024. 

Paper Selection

Submission of a paper does not guarantee acceptance. Quality and relevancy of the submitted paper is the highest priority for acceptance. Papers will undergo a rigorous review process via the IEEE PES Technical Committees. 

Presentation of Conference Papers

All accepted conference papers will be scheduled for presentation at the poster sessions. 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.

Prize Conference Paper

Up to 5 conference papers will be chosen and recognized as Grid Edge 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 at the Poster Session

An author of an accepted PES Transactions paper who is interested in presenting it at the 2025 PES Grid Edge must select “accepted transactions paper abstract” as the paper type from the dropdown menu. You must upload the full paper, as a supporting document, in addition to the paper’s abstract, to the on-line submission and review site by the deadlines listed above. The appropriate PES Technical Committee Program Chair (TCPC) will determine if the topic of the paper is suited for presentation in one of the technical sessions. The author will be notified of the decision by e-mail.

This process 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 The full paper will not be published in the Conference Proceedings.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 Grid Edge will have their abstracts published in the Conference Proceedings.

Conference Registration

As we did in 2023, it is expected that the Grid Edge program will also include over 130 exhibitors, exhibit floor stage presentations and a PhD dissertation competition. Additional information about the event will be posted as it is available.
