10th work meeting – Wireless Energy Transfer

imec, 31 May 2012

This 10th work meeting will focus on wireless energy transfer – both inductive and RF – and on RF energy harvesting. Contributions will include oral and poster presentations, and demos.

The work meeting will be co-organised with IWWETH, the international workshop on wireless energy transfer and harvesting.
Both events will take place at imec in Leuven.

The IWWETH workshop will start in the morning and seamlessly run into the Wireless Community work meeting in the afternoon.

Wireless Community members will be able to attend the IWWETH workshop at a reduced rate (50 EUR, including lunch), and have free access to the Wireless Community work meeting in the afternoon.

Registration:
  • confirm your attendance for the Wireless Community work meeting in the afternoon by email to: registration@wireless-community.be
  • registration for the IWWETH workshop in the morning: please follow the instructions on the IWWETH website
