17th International Conference on Microwave and High Frequency Heating: AMPERE 2019
9-12 September 2019
CPI, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain.
The 17th International Conference on Microwave and High Frequency Heating: AMPERE 2019 is the largest event in Europe dedicated to scientific and industrial applications of microwave and radiofrequency power systems.
The conference presents the status and trends in the multidisciplinary fields of microwave and radiofrequency heating, dielectric properties, material processing, high power systems and technologies.
The AMPERE conference is a unique opportunity for the presentation and discussion of the most recent advances in the microwave technology and its applications. The conference provides many opportunities to researchers and engineers from academia and industry to exchange innovative ideas, networking, discuss collaborations and to meet with international experts in a wide variety of specialities of microwave and high frequency technologies at both scientific and industrial scale.
The conference will be held in the The Polytechnic City of Innovation (CPI). The CPI is the Science Park of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV). The Science Park is conceived as a space, not only in physical terms, to connect university, business and society in order to streamline the generation of knowledge-intensive activities.
Scope and Topics
A broad range of microwave and radio frequency related topics, from materials and technologies to high power systems and applications will be addressed in all their aspects: theory, simulation, design, measurement and applications. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Energy Production by Microwaves (including renewable energy and chemicals)
- Plasma processing induced by microwaves (CVD, cleaning, nanoparticles...)
- Microwave and High Frequency Material interaction
- Dielectric and Magnetic Material Properties and Measurements
- EM Modelling and Numerical Techniques
- Design of Microwave Applicators and Components
- Solid State Microwave Technology
- Microwave and High Frequency Sources and Power Supply
- Microwave Industrial Equipment and Scale-up
- Microwave Chemistry
- Food Processing
- Microwave Packaging
- Medical and Biological Applications
- Radiation Safety and Standards
- Trends in Microwave Processing
In particular, relevant topics for the conference will be:
Energy Production by Microwaves (including renewable energy and chemicals)
The scope of this topic includes the application of microwave/RF technology for a transition towards a sustainable and secure energy supply, addressing solutions such as CO2 capture and conversion, H2 separation or other processes intensification for sustainable energy conversion
Plasma processing induced by microwaves (CVD, cleaning, nanoparticles...)
This topic includes fundamental and engineering studies about microwave plasma technology addressing application fields such as semiconductor and material processing, diamond film deposition, waste remediation and others.
AMPERE, “Association for Microwave Power in Europe for Research and Education is a European non-profit association devoted to the promotion of microwave and radio frequency heating techniques for research and industrial applications.
The “International Conference on Microwave and High Frequency Heating” is the main conference organised on behalf of AMPERE Association and it is held biennially.
There have been 16 previous conferences in Europe: Cambridge-UK (1986); Arnhem-NL (1989); Nice-F (1991); Gothenburg-S (1993); Cambridge-UK (1995), Fermo-I (1997), Valencia-E (1999), Bayreuth-D (2001), Loughborough-UK (2003), Modena-I (2005), Oradea-ROM (2007), Karlsruhe-D (2009), Toulouse-F (2011), Nottingham-UK (2013), Cracow-PL (2015) and Delf-NL (2017).
Additionally, three Microwaves in Chemistry meetings have been sponsored by AMPERE. The first was held in Prague-CZ (1998), followed by Antibes-F (2000), and finally Brno-CZ (2006).
AMPERE has also endorsed the World Congresses held in Florida-USA (1997) and (2000), Sydney-AUS (2002), Austin-USA (2004), Otsu-Japan (2008), Long Beach, Ca-USA (2012), and Cartagena-E (2016).
