International Conference on Power Engineering-2019 (ICOPE-2019)

Dianchi Garden Hotel & Spa

Kunming, China, October 21-25, 2019


Organized and Sponsored by the Chinese Society of Power Engineering (CSPE)

Co-organized and Co-sponsored by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)

Local Organizer:  Zhejiang University(ZJU)and Kunming University of Science and Technology(KUST)



The International Conference on Power Engineering (ICOPE) was jointly sponsored and organized by the Chinese Society of Power Engineering (CSPE), the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME) and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). ICOPE were hosted every two years by JSME, CSPE and ASME in rotation. Following conferences in Tokyo (1993 and 1997), Shanghai (1995), San Francisco (1999), Xi'an (2001), Kobe (2003 and 2009), Chicago (2005), Hangzhou (2007), Denver (2011), Wuhan (2013), Yokohama (2015), and Charlotte (2017), the ICOPE-2019 will be held in Kunming of China.

The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for presenting, discussing, and promoting the international exchange of recent technological advances in power engineering and related areas. The conference will include plenary lectures, technical sessions and technical tour.

Brief Introduction of Kunming and KUST

Kunming is in the southwest border of China and is the capital of Yunnan Province. It has a history of more than 2,400 years and was the gateway of the ancient Silk Road to Thailand, Myanmar, India and other countries. Kunming is known as the Spring City of China, due to its mild weather all year. Today it is the political, economical and cultural center of Yunnan Province as well as the most popular tourist destination in southwest China.

Kunming University of Science and Technology (KUST) is one of the top 100 universities in China, and the largest university as well as the only polytechnic university across Yunnan province. KUST has 3 campuses in Kunming City. With 27 faculties (schools/colleges) and 3,900 staff members, KUST is offering over 300 degree programs at Bachelor, Master and Doctor levels to around 40,000 full time on-campus students. The programs cover engineering, science, management, economics, medicine, law, arts, philosophy, agriculture and education.
