AUPEC 2015 - Challenges for Future Grids

27-30 September 2015

The Australian Power Quality and Reliability Centre (APQRC) at the University of Wollongong (UOW) is pleased to host the 25th Australasian Universities Power Engineering Conference 2015 (AUPEC 2015). The conference will be held in Wollongong from 27-30 September 2015 at the Novotel Wollongong Northbeach. For more information see venue and hotel information. AUPEC is an annual conference with a well established history of over 20 years and today sees researchers and practising power engineers from both academia and industry throughout the Australasian region connecting together to share research and ideas for the advancement of Power Engineering for the benefit of the power industry and consumers.

The conference theme for AUPEC 2015 is Challenges for Future Grids. The conference will provide an opportunity to not only explore the challenges facing the power grid of the future, but also to share a vision for solutions to those challenges.

For the scope of topics for papers for AUPEC 2015 please see the call for papers and read about paper submission information for authors.

The AUPEC 2015 organising committee is pleased to have several distinguished keynote speakers from around the world presenting keynote addresses during the conference. There will also be an expert panel session on Energy Storage on day 3 of the conference. Two tutorials will also be held on the Sunday prior to the conference. For further information about what will be happening at AUPEC 2015 see the conference program..

API Industry Travel Grants

The Australian Power Institute (API) is offering individual travel grants up to $1,000 up to a total of $5,000 to assist Australian industry presenters in participating in AUPEC 2015.

A grant applicant must be an employee of an API member organisation, first author of a paper, located outside of NSW and be recommended by his or her manager. Requests for travel grants (economy flights and accommodation) are to be submitted with paper abstracts to the AUPEC 2015 organising committee along with the estimated travel grant being sought (up to $1,000 per grant). Successful applicants will be selected by both the AUPEC Organising Committee Chair and the API Chief Executive. Payment of travel grants is to be arranged directly with the API and will be provided as reimbursement for travel expenses based on receipts submitted to the API.

The objective of the API travel grants is to encourage greater industry and academic engagement on industry relevant power engineering research with examples of such engagement being presented in papers at AUPEC 2015.

EESA Student Paper Prize

The Electric Energy Society of Australia (EESA) is sponsoring a $1,000 prize for the best student paper. To be eligible a student must by the first author of the paper. The winning paper will be selected by the Technical Review Committee.
