Modena, 28th August 2018

Dear AMPERE members and friends,

My sincere apologies for having closed the Association website ( for such a long time, however, I hope that you will be satisfied with its new look.

Firstly, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has required a really significant modification to the old existing website, so we took the opportunity while we made the necessary steps to ensure that the website could be accessed via portable devices. Additionally, we have incorporated the Newsletter website within the Association website, offering a single and compact information source.

As you will appreciate, the AMPERE website has restored all the previous member services, but we have also instituted new ones, such as the “search” operation in the Newsletter website and the links to the confederated Associations.

I would hope that those of you who have any information about events and approved projects, will readily be willing to prepare a short paragraph for the News, so that to ensure 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 2-year maintenance cost which effectively reduces the Association’s balance as approved during the September 2017 OGA in Delft.

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 a UIE Ph.D. Intensive Course.

5 th Summer School in High Energy Processing, Ultrasound & Microwave Technologies, 26-28 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 hope that we may soon receive new links of our members activities, which will be added in alphabetical order in the topic: “About us”.

I will be pleased to receive as much feedback as possible 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
