IEEE Wireless Power Week (WPW) Call for Papers

The 2021 IEEE Wireless Power Week (WPW) will be held in San Diego on June 1-4 2021 hosting in parallel two conferences: the IEEE Workshop on Emerging Technologies: Wireless Power (WoW) and Wireless Power Transfer Conference (WPTC).

WPW is the largest event in the world for wireless power research, financially co-sponsored by IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (MTT-S) and Power Electronics Society (PELS). WPW is technically co-sponsored by MTT-S, PELS and Antenna Propagation Society (APS). The Wireless Power Transfer School, supported by the IEEE Wireless Power Transfer Project initiative, will be held during the event. 

WoW 2021 covers a wide range of topics related to wireless power. The topics include, but are not limited to:

  1. Coupler designs for wireless power
  2. Compensation techniques for wireless power
  3. Converter topologies and control for wireless power
  4. Modeling and simulation of wireless power systems
  5. EMC, EMI, safety and foreign object detection for wireless power
  6. Applications of wireless power

WPTC 2021 covers a wide range of topics related to wireless power technologies across the electromagnetic spectrum. The topics include but are not limited to:

  1. Theories and techniques for wireless power transfer
  2. Devices and systems for short-distance wireless power transfer
  3. Industrial applications, issues and regulations
  4. Microwave/mm-Wave wireless power transfer and RF energy harvesting
  5. Biomedical and healthcare applications
  6. Emerging techniques and applications

Further details about WoW 2021, WPTC 2021, and instructions for paper submissions are provided in their respective call for papers available from the WPW website:


In addition to the technical sessions associated with WoW 2021 and WPTC 2021, the two conferences will collectively feature plenary talks by leaders in wireless power, tutorials by specialists in the area, student competitions, and an industry exhibition.

Submission Guidelines of Regular Papers

Prospective authors are asked to submit their papers through this website. Papers should make a timely contribution to state-of-the-art technology, be of high technical and editorial quality, and be devoid of commercialism. Each paper proposal must include:technical track number and name, paper title, name(s) of author(s), business affiliation(s), mailing address(es), phone and fax numbers, and e-mail address(es)and corresponding author(s). An abstract of 50-100 words and a digest of 3-5 pages (including figures and tables) should include stating the objective of the paper,outlining the problem requiring solution or the method of approach to research, being explicit with respect to the type of data and summarizing the conclusions.It should clearly define the concepts and novel features,and all submitted papers from the 2021WoW can be further considered for review by Journal of Emerging and Selected Topics in Power Electronics (JESTPE)

Worldwide outstanding specialists in wireless power are invited to deliver plenary talks, and dialog sessions for emerging issues on wireless power will be provided.
