SDEWES 2014 : The 9th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems
Call For Papers
Types of papers sought
The papers must report original, previously unpublished findings in the fields of sustainable development of energy, transport, water, food and environment systems. All papers will be reviewed under the direction of the International Scientific Committee by the Scientific Advisory Board. The abstracts and papers must be written in English. The papers with archival value (archival papers), meaning those that contribute significantly to the state of the art and report final results of research, with proper literature review, will be thoroughly reviewed and will be candidates for publication consideration in special issues of several archival journals. The papers that report work in progress, conventional projects without much contribution to the state of the art, and those lacking a thorough literature review, are invited as conference papers, and will receive less stringent review. Authors are invited to offer suggestion on classification of their papers as "archival" or "conference", when submitting them.
Authors (corresponding author) willing to present a paper should submit an abstract in English, between 1500-2500 characters long.
Abstract preparation and submission instructions:
An abstract is an extremely important part of the paper because it summarizes the entire paper; it is the public's window to your work and must allow the reviewers to make an intelligent decision about its acceptance. Its typical composition should be:
Motivation for the paper
What was done
How it was done and validated
In writing the abstract, be quantitative, write it clearly and in good English, and do not exceed the imposed 1500-2500 characters length limit because accepted abstracts will be published in the proceedings, one page per abstract.
The abstracts should be submitted online.
Paper submission, presentation and deadline rules
Each paper to be published in online Proceedings and in special issues of journals will have to be presented at the Conference by one of the authors (presenting author). The papers will not be allowed to be presented by those who are not its authors. Papers not presented will not be published in the online Proceedings and will not be invited in special issues, no matter what the reason for not presenting them is. Each participating author will be obliged to present one paper orally at the Conference. Any additional papers by the same author will be presented in the poster sessions.
