The 2021 IEEE Wireless Power Transfer Conference (WPTC) will be virtual on June 1-4 2021, in parallel with the IEEE Workshop on Emerging Technologies: Wireless Power (WoW), in the IEEE Wireless Power Week (WPW2021). WPW is the largest wireless power event in the world, financially co-sponsored by IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) and Power Electronics Society (PELS). WPW is technically co-sponsored by MTT-S, PELS and Antenna Propagation Society (APS). The Wireless Power Transfer School, supported by the IEEE Wireless Power Transfer Project initiative, will be held during the event.

San Diego, USA

San Diego is the second largest city in California and the 8th in the US. The city San Diego is the best place to launch a startup, according to a 2014 issue of Forbes magazine. The City of San Diego's strong economy, diverse population, great educational institutions, unsurpassed quality of life and world-renowned location make it the ideal place to do business. Because of its talented, highly educated workforce and mix of high-tech industry and recreational assets, a marketing consortium of high-tech industries has dubbed San Diego "Technology's Perfect Climate."

Call for Papers

WPTC2021 covers a wide range of topics related to wireless power technologies across the electromagnetic spectrum. In addition to high-quality technical sessions, the conference will feature keynote speeches, tutorials, workshops, student competition, and industry exhibitions. Paper submissions require manuscripts with 2-4 pages in the standard IEEE double columns format for the review process. Detailed instructions for paper submissions will be forthcoming. Conference proceedings that meet the IEEE quality review standards may be eligible for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Selected authors are invited to submit the extended version of their papers for possible publication in several journal special issues: IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques (T-MTT), IEEE Journal of Electromagnetics, RF and Microwaves in Medicine and Biology (J-ERM), and two MDPI journals (Sensors and Electronics).
