International Conference on Power Engineering - 2023
    “Nuclear, thermal, and renewables: United to provide carbon neutral power”
    May 21-26, 2023. Kyoto International Conference Center, Kyoto, Japan

Steering Committee of ICOPE-2023 is monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation to ensure the health and safety of our meeting and participants, as well as our staff. We will also be monitoring the recommendations from the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, Japan and the World Health Organization (WHO) as the situation progresses.

Due to various uncertainties of the COVID-19 and anticipation for safe travel to Japan, the ICOPE-2023 Steering committee and the Scientific Committees are considering various possibilities for holding ICOPE-2023 including a Hybrid conference depending on the situation.

Whether to have the conference only in face-to-face is being considered. A decision on whether the conference will be only face-to-face or hybrid will be made by the end of February.

Call for Papers


The conference aims to provide a platform for promoting collaborations among professional societies and enhancing the technical exchanges in the power engineering community regarding thermal power, distributed energy system including heat and power utilization, energy storage, renewable energy, environmental issues including low-carbon, CCS (Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage), CCUS (Carbon dioxide Capture, Utilization and Storage) and waste to energy, and the other energy-related topics. Hydrogen is expected to be a key fuel for energy storage of variable renewable energy, low-quality coal utilization, and low-carbon energy systems. CCUS is attracting attention as a bridging technology. The conference will be held in Kyoto, a famous ancient city where an innovative CCS is demonstrating.
