The organisation of the next conference has already begun in 2020, however, because of the pandemic, the regular 2-year period of the event has been extended to 3 years, so that the conference can be held in 2022, hopefully in person. The IYCE’22 is to take place in Hungary again.
The „7th International Youth Conference on Energy 2019” (IYCE’19) took place in Bled, Slovenia, between July 3-6 in 2019.

In 2015, Italy was home to the „5th International Youth Conference on Energy 2015” (IYCE’15). The event took place between the 27-30th of May.

The main goal of the “2nd International Youth Conference on Energetics 2009” (IYCE’09) was - similarly to the first - to promote the importance of the energy field and the innovativeness of the development through addressing the future generations. 129 participants from 23 countries presented 63 publications at the conference held in Budapest for the second time.
In the year of 2007, with the creation of a tradition in mind, we organised an international youth conference in English named „International Youth Conference on Energetics 2007” (IYCE). The event was supported by large international organizations like AEE, CIGRE or ENEN. Similar events, targeting young researchers, university and PhD students have not previously been organised in our country. The conference provided opportunities for young professionals to publish their work on an international level and also to develop social networks between themselves, the presenters, and the industrial or academic representatives who attended the forum.
