"The 2007 IEEE Conference on the History of Electric Power", 3-5 August 2007. This is the sixth in a series of conferences sponsored by the IEEE History Committee and the IEEE History Center at Rutgers University. The conference will be held on the campus of the New Jersey Institute of Technology, home to the Edward Weston Papers, in Newark, New Jersey, USA. This is close to the Edison National Historic Site, which is undergoing major renovation and is soon to reopen. The profound role electric power has had in shaping the modern world, from Edison's first central station in 1882 to the present, makes this a vital topic of historical study. We expect that at this conference, as at our earlier conferences, we will have a congenial group of engineers, historians, museum curators, and others, dozens of fascinating papers, plenty of time for informal discussion, and some interesting excursions. Conference papers will deal with all aspects of electric power and its applications from the 19th century to the present. Please submit abstract and 1-page c.v., either electronically or in paper form, to Frederik Nebeker, IEEE History Center, Rutgers University, 39 Union Street, New Brunswick NJ 08901, USA; firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for paper proposals is 1 March 2007. Additional information will be posted on the IEEE History Center Website at www.ieee.org/web/aboutus/history_center/.
