Modena, 28th August 2018

Dear AMPERE members and friends,

My apologies for having closed the association website for so long, but you should visit its new look at the ususal address:

Firstly, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has required a truly significant modification to the old existing website, meanwhile we took the chance to adapt the reading of the website to portable devices. Additionally, we have incorporated the Newsletter website within the Association website, offering a single and compact information source.

As you will realize, AMPERE website has been offering a restored member services, but we have also instituted others, as the “search” operation in the Newsletter website and the links to the confederated Associations.

I expect that those of you who has informations about events and approved projects will undertake voluntary efforts to prepare a short info sentence for the News, so that to have a more active and vivid website. The introduction of a new page fully dedicated to the events organized and endorsed by AMPERE provides a data bank for past and future events which can be enriched with new endorsed events.

The cost of the website restyling has been just slightly higher than the usual cost of 2- years maintenance to reduce the effect on the Association’s balance as approved in September 2017 in Delft by the OGA.

I conclude this letter listing the three events already planned for the year 2019:

HES-19, Heating by Electromagnetic Sources, 22-24 May 2019, Padua (Italy), including UIE Ph.D. Intensive Course.
5th Summer School in High Energy Processing, Ultrasound & Microwave Technologies, June 2019, Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Technology Cracow University of Technology (Poland).

AMPERE 2019, 17th International Conference on Microwave and High Frequency Heating, 9-12 September 2019, CPI, Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain.
I expect that we might soon receive additional links of our members activities, now present in alphabetical order in the topic: “About us”.

I will be pleased to receive all and any feedback on the new website, particularly from those groups that have been granted industrial projects and desire to promote their new websites.

Best regards,


Cristina Leonelli
