Since 2010, after Qi standard of an inductive coupling wireless power transmission was established, Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) related technologies experienced a great growth. Wireless charging products of a mobile phone with Qi standard are manufactured and sold in worldwide and WPT technologies have been widely studied for consumer electronics and automotive applications.

A new technical committee (TC), MTT-26, for the field of wireless energy/power transmission, energy harvesting/conversion to wireless transfer and the related technologies was officially launched in June MTT ADCOM/TCC meeting during Microwave Week 2011 at Baltimore. The second IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Workshop Series (IMWS) on Innovative Wireless Power Transmission: Technologies, Systems, and Applications (IMWS-IWPT2012) was successfully organized at Kyoto, Japan, in May 2012. As a result of this success and interest, IEEE-MTT Society decided to start the first IEEE WPTC (Wireless Power Transfer Conference) 2013 in Perugia, Italy.

In order to continue the success of IEEE WPTC 2013, IEEE WPTC 2014 event, still stimulated and supported by TC-MTT-26 and endorsed by TC-MTT-24 (RFID-Technologies), will be held in Jeju Island, Korea, hosted by KAIST(Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology).
