AUPEC - 2018 - Transition to a low-carbon Energy Future

AUPEC (Australasian Power Engineering Universities Committee) is running its annual conference in Auckland in late November 2018 and has now called for interested parties to submit papers.

The Power Systems Group from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Auckland is pleased to host the 28th Australasian Universities Power Engineering Conference (AUPEC) 2018. The conference will be held from 27-30 November at the University of Auckland. The Australasian Universities Power Engineering Conference is the top conference in power engineering in Australia, South East Asia and New Zealand. It provides a forum for university researchers, industry researchers, and experts in power engineering to share ideas, present results, consider past experiences, and discuss new and innovative ideas.

Key highlights of the event will be:

• Keynote presentations from academic and practice leaders in the field.
• Presentation and poster sessions for idea sharing and discussion.
• Tutorial sessions and industry visits organised by industry practitioners.
• Women in Power/Young Professionals Networking Forum.
• Training skills workshop on the requirement of the next workforce.
