About the Conference


The first IWIPP was held in 1998 at the Congress Plaza hotel in Chicago, IL, USA. After the late 90's, the conference went on a 16-year hiatus and returned to its Chicago roots in 2015. The 2015 revival of IWIPP was an exciting workshop which focused on cutting edge packaging approaches.

After the success of the 2019 and 2022 editions in Toulouse and Grenoble, the 2025 workshop will be hosted in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers in the field of power electronic components, electrical insulating materials, and packaging technologies to promote the development and commercialization of high-density and high-efficiency power converters. Papers are sought that address important challenges in power electronic components and systems and present solutions to increase reliability and manufacturability while targeting increased performance and reduced system cost.

The workshop aims to provide the opportunity to engage in a meaningful discussion about the latest technologies and techniques in both industry and academia, and from early-stage research to volume manufacturing, ensuring that a learning environment is fostered for all.

IWIPP Technical Expertise Areas


Powerful devices require thoughtful packaging designs. IWIPP covers everything from mechanical and thermal considerations to new low-inductance footprints.

System Design

From EMI to thermal management and partial discharge, we understand that making great parts work together can be difficult.

Dielectrics & Materials

It isn’t possible to make great applications without the fundamental dielectrics & materials.

Reliability & Testing

Once you make a system, you need to put it to the test. And we want to hear how it went.

Safety & Standards

It can be difficult to protect and benchmark new technology, so we want to hear your thoughts.


Making systems run efficiently and powerfully is a little different than just making them run.

Modeling & Simulation

Proof-of-concept is critical in electronics design, and virtual prototyping is becoming more powerful each and every day.


The heartbeat of power electronics systems. Let’s debate and discuss the best and the latest.
