The PCIC annual conference is rotated across North American locations of industry strength to attract national and international participation. Join us in Cincinnati, Ohio for the 2018 PCIC Conference. Technical papers and working group meeting will occur on September 24th through the 26th, and tutorials will be held on September 27th.

PCIC has a long and storied history, and the PCIC brand has been used to host a number of international conferences. The success of the PCIC brand is built upon high quality papers, personal recognition and reward, valued standards activities, mentoring, tutorials and networking.

The annual IEEE-PCIC conference is an exchange of technical ideas – not a trade show – that brings together professionals with a common focus on electrical installations and safety. The PCIC Executive and Local Committees take great pride in providing a high quality conference while keeping registration and participation costs reasonable.

PCIC is the best educational value for anyone working in the petrochemical electrical field. Here’s why:

  1. Conference papers and tutorials are authored by many of the most respected minds in the industry. Great care is taken to ensure that presentations are free of commercial content.
  2. Many PCIC members participate in writing industry standards. Working groups meet prior to the start of the conference to work on standards for the IEEE, API and other organizations. These meetings are open to all conference registrants.
  3. Vendors are an integral part of PCIC.  They support the technical and professional goals of the Conference, author papers, sponsor Conference functions and host evening hospitality events.
