4GCMEA

The 4th Global Congress on Microwave Energy Applications

Postponed from August 17-20, 2020 to August 2022
Chengdu Charming Yard Nature Nook Hotel, Chengdu, China

COVID-19 Update


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, 4GCMEA has to be postponed. Representatives from 5 MAJIC associations had an online meeting and discussed about the postponement. We finally made the difficult decision to achieve an agreement that the 4GCMEA would be shifted from its current dates of 17-20 August 2020 to August 2022. We sincerely thank everyone who made contributions to 4GCMEA.

Welcome to 4GCMEA 2020


The Global Congress on Microwave Energy Applications (GCMEA) is the “Olympic Event” for worldwide researchers and engineers working on the relevant fields of microwave/RF power applications. It happens every 4 years in a different continent. Sichuan University together with the China Association of Microwave Power Applications (CAMPA) is pleased to announce that the 4th GCMEA will be kindly hosted in Chengdu, Sichuan, China during August 17-20, 2020 concurrently with IMPACIE 2020 (2020年微波能化工应用全国会议).

Chengdu is the capital city of Sichuan Province, with a history of more than two thousand years and many cultural relics. It is usually associated with many tags, such as “the homeland of pandas”, “city of gastronomy” and “tourist resort”. Being an international city, people can take a comfortable and nonstop travel to Chengdu from all around the world. We are excited to invite you to Chengdu for this global congress.

Chengdu Attractions

Chengdu is the capital of southwestern China's Sichuan province. Chengdu's history dates back to at least the 4th century B.C., when it served as capital for the Shu Kingdom. Artifacts from that dynasty are the focus of the Jinsha Site Museum. The city is also home to the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a conservation center where visitors can view endangered giant pandas in a natural habitat. The Shufengya Yun Sichuan Opera showcases traditional opera, which includes fire-breathing and face-changing (sleight-of-hand mask changes). Du Fu Thatched Cottage Museum explores the life and works of a renowned Tang Dynasty poet. Contrasting with the New Century Global Center, a massive shopping complex containing hotels and a water park, are numerous quaint teahouses scattered throughout the modern metropolis. The city is famed for its cuisine, defined by the spicy Sichuan peppercorn, which flavors hot-pot dishes and other regional specialties.
