SEE SDEWES Ohrid 2014 : The 1st South East European Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems
Call For Papers
Types of papers sought
Authors are invited to offer suggestion on classification of their papers as "archival" or "conference", when submitting them.
Archival papers: Papers 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 (among others, Energy, Applied Energy, Journal of Cleaner Production, Energy Conversion and Management, Thermal Science, Waste Management & Research, Management of Environmental Quality, Chemical Engineering Transactions, Journal of Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems).
Conference papers: 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; will receive less stringent review.
All papers must report original, previously unpublished findings in the fields of sustainable development of energy, water and environment systems and will be reviewed under direction of the International Scientific Committee by the Scientific Advisory Board.
The abstracts and papers must be written in English.
Abstract preparation and submission instructions
Authors (corresponding author) willing to present a paper should submit an abstract in English, between 1500-2500 characters long. The abstract is an extremely important part of the paper because it summarizes the entire paper; it is a window to your work and must allow the reviewers to make an appropriate decision about its acceptance. Typically, the abstract should include:
- Motivation for the paper
- What was done
- How it was done and validated
- Major results
When writing the abstract, be quantitative and clear and use good English. Do not exceed the imposed length limit.
The abstracts should be submitted online.
We believe that it would be very useful if the authors thoroughly review the papers that have already been published in partner journals in special issues dedicated to the SDEWES conference series. Such an effort would not only improve the quality of your manuscript, but also promote the awareness of the available information resources that exist in the structure of the SDEWES conference series. Please use the online databases for the literature review: http://www.sdewes.org/journals.php.
Paper submission, presentation and deadline rules
Each paper to be published in online Proceedings and in special issues of journals must be presented at the Conference by one of the authors (presenting author). The paper 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 can present two papers.
Types of contributions:
archival paper (published in the Book of Abstracts and online Proceedings, invited to a special issue, submitted by April 30, fee settled by May 15, 2014)
conference paper (published in Book of Abstracts and online Proceedings, submitted by May 31, 2014, fee settled by May 15, 2014)
conference abstract (published in Book of Abstracts, fee settled by May 15, 2014)
Types of presentation:
oral presentation (presented in one of general or special sessions)
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.
Manuscript template/instructions is available to all corresponding/presenting authors of accepted abstracts after logging-in the conference submission system.
