Dear colleagues,

We are very pleased to announce the 20th International Vacuum Electronics Conference (IVEC 2019) will be held on April 29 - May 1, 2019 in Paradise Hotel Busan, South Korea. Just before the conference we will have one-day mini-course by internationally well-known experts on April 28.

In conjunction with technical co-sponsorship by the IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) and financial sponsorship by Korean Institute of Electromagnetic Engineering and Science (KIEES), we are sure that the IVEC 2019 conference will provide an exciting forum for scientists and engineers and applications. The scope of the conference covers not only the latest developments in vacuum electronics technologies but also its applications at frequencies ranging from UHF to THz frequency bands.

We encourage you to visit IVEC 2019 website to find many useful informations such as paper submission, registration, accommodation, and other important dates and events. In this conference, the best poster awards are arranged to encourage the participants. A certificate with a small souvenir will be awarded to the winners.

Busan is the second largest city in South Korea where you will find many interesting attractions both from city and ocean side. There are numerous hotels with different costs and various restaurants in a walking distance from conference venue. The conference venue, Paradise Hotel Busan, is beautifully located and can directly access to Haeundae Beach. I hope you participate the IVEC 2019 and enjoy both the science/technology and friendship.

We cordially welcome all of you to Busan. We look forward to seeing you soon.

All the best for you,

The IVEC 2019 Organizing Committee​
