News archive - [Event Announcement and Call for Papers] 3st South East European Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems (SDEWES SEE2018 NOVI SAD)

The main challenge for South East Europe (SEE) economies is to commit to, and sustain the implementation of, long-term reforms aimed at increasing competitiveness and promoting sustainable, inclusive and balanced development, as well as better integration between the EU Member States, candidate and potential candidate countries and neighbouring countries. An adequate response to this challenge will certainly require using the best available scientific knowledge and constant re-evaluation of the development process in light of the scientific findings. Therefore, it will be essential to enhance the scientific understanding, improve the long-term scientific assessments, strengthen the scientific capacities and ensure that the sciences are responsive to the emerging needs.

Along this line, a regional series of biannual Sustainable Development of Energy Water and Environment Systems (SDEWES) conferences have been initiated to provide a venue for the researchers from the SEE region, but also for world-wide researchers and specialists and those interested in learning about the sustainability of development, to present research progress and to discuss the state of the art, the future directions and priorities in the various areas of sustainable development and regional integration. The 3rd SDEWES SEE Conference will be held in Novi Sad, Serbia from June 30 until July 3 2018. Deadline for abstract submission is January 15, 2018.


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The papers must report original, previously unpublished findings in the fields of sustainable development of energy, transport, water, food and environment systems, their integration, their technical, environmental, economic and social perspectives. All papers will be reviewed under the direction of the International Scientific Committee by the Scientific Advisory Board. 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 without significant 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, between 1500-2500 characters long. The archival abstracts and papers must be written in English, while conference abstracts and papers will also be accepted in Portuguese and Spanish. The abstracts, which will be reviewed by International Scientific Committee, can only be submitted online: please check the website for further details.
