It is with great pleasure that the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, the University Politehnica of Bucharest and the University Politehnica of Timisoara welcome you to Cluj-Napoca to participate at the 49th Universities’ Power Engineering Conference – UPEC2014 from September 2nd to September 5th 2014.
The Technical University of Cluj-Napoca is located in the historical center of Cluj-Napoca, the European Youth Capital (2015). Set in the heart of Transylvania, Cluj-Napoca boasts a major architectural heritage and most of the historical buildings are in Liberty style. With one of the most vibrant economies in the country and a population of around 330.000, Cluj-Napoca is today a dynamic cultural and academic city, with more than 100.000 students.
UPEC is a long-established conference, which is very popular with young researchers, PhD students and engineers from the power industry. The aim of the conference is to allow participants to exchange experiences and discuss the most up-to-date topics in power engineering.
The global energy challenge, the ageing of electrical networks in industrial countries, and the extension of the grid systems in developing countries require significant research input in the area. UPEC is an ideal forum to address some of these issues, and to network and meet with talented engineers and innovators in these areas. Therefore, contributions are welcome from universities as well as industry.
The parallel conference sessions will be held at Grand Hotel Napoca and the tutorials sessions at Technical University of Cluj-Napoca.
