2nd Solar Integration Workshop 2012 : 2nd International Workshop on Integration of Solar Power into Power Systems
Call For Papers
We welcome papers, brief technical notes, and posters. You are invited to present your research or discuss your technical developments in our printed proceedings.
Please be prepared to submit an abstract of maximum 500 words (free style) as well as a brief summary of the nature of your work and level of expertise between 11 February and 11 May, 2012.
Please note that abstracts will only be accepted if submitted to the workshop's online abstract submission system.
Based on this information, authors will be notified of the acceptance of their papers by 15 June, 2012.
Final papers must then be submitted 15 September, 2012 at the latest.
Authors will need to register but are entitled to pay a reduced workshop fee.
All presented papers and posters will be published in the workshop proceedings (ISBN 978-3-9813870-6-3).
All participants are responsible for paying their own travel and hotel expenses.
