Introduction

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the spectacular world class city of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for the 36th Annual INTELEC® Conference on Energy for Communications. INTELEC® 2014 will take place September 28 - October 2, 2014 at the spectacular Vancouver Convention Centre (East). The theme of our conference is "Resilient Communications Energy for our Connected World”. Our world is becoming increasingly reliant upon being globally interconnected with voice, text, video, data and other communications by optical, wired and wireless mediums. However at the same time the integrity of these connections is being challenged by natural disasters, cyber-attacks, equipment failure, human error and other unforeseen events. Energy and power systems for communications are playing an increasingly important role in enabling uninterrupted communications and these systems must be reliable, robust and resilient. The conference will highlight developments that assure that energy processing and storage systems perform resiliently. In keeping with the theme of the conference the Program Committee has developed a comprehensive technical program that will explore a broad range of topics crucial to the industry. The program will include keynote and plenary sessions, academic and industry presentations and poster sessions, exhibitor seminars and workshops. The conference will also include tutorial sessions and an industry exhibition. At INTELEC® 2014 you will be able to engage with global leaders and experts in topics such as powering through disasters, high voltage DC power systems, advanced energy storage systems and many others that are critical to operational success. The INTELEC® 2014 Conference will be located in the Vancouver Convention Centre East, a state of the art facility located above the cruise ship terminal in Vancouver’s scenic Burrard inlet harbour. The Conference hotel is the famous Pan Pacific Hotel co-located with the Convention Centre.
