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 pplications.
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).
