Call for Presentations

Motor and Drive Systems 2022 is currently accepting presentation and panel abstracts. Being held February 8-9, 2022 in Orlando, the event will explore the important topics impacting motor and drive systems and the applications they serve including design consideration, emerging technologies, intelligent motion control systems, energy efficiency, safety issues, power modules, simulation and testing.

Applications include, but not limited to industrial, robotics, energy storage/solar, appliances, UVA, and automotive.


The conference provides an excellent forum for speakers to discuss case studies, ROI, market conditions and end-user requirements that are driving innovation, capabilities and features, application trends and performance improvements.

Attendees include top executives, technical managers and engineering professionals from original equipment manufacturers, system developers and integrators, dealers and component providers.


Speaking slots are not tied to sponsorships and speakers receive a complimentary pass to the conference, as well as to MAGNETICS 2022.

Abstracts are now being reviewed on a first-come basis.
