5th AIEE Energy Symposium on Current and Future Challenges to Energy Security
 – energy perspectives beyond COVID19 –
15-17 December, 2020



 virtual conference in cooperation with SDA Bocconi School of Management

 Abstract submission starts on July 15, 2020 – deadline September 10, 2020

We have the pleasure to announce you to the 5th AIEE Energy Symposium on Energy Security organized by the Italian Association of Energy Economists – AIEE (www.aiee.it), the Italian affiliate of IAEE (www.iaee.org), with the support of the SDA Bocconi School of Management.

conference overview

In this uncertain times regarding travelling around the world, social distancing and possibility to attend the event physically, hosting a virtual event is an excellent alternative and therefore we decided to hold the 5th AIEE Symposium on energy Security 2020, online.
Our Symposium has become an important yearly appointment and an opportunity to discuss energy security, to explore new and existing trends, creative solutions of new technologies, the emergence of new market conditions and of new market operators. 

An appointment we do not want to miss!

Our conference will have the same structure as the previous editions because we want it to feel as much like an in-person event as possible, with plenary sessions and keynote presentations and several concurrent sessions which include traditional presentations, lightning talks, discussions, and interacting.

Live chat questions and answers with the presenters during their sessions and real-time conversations among participants. The speakers can present their slides and attendees can ask questions about the topic.
Virtual conferences might lack the intimacy of a physical gathering, but they democratize access offering the attendees the possibility to connect with each other providing an interactive, collaborative networking, information-sharing and manly the same benefits as on-site events with less cost and less risk. The shift to online gatherings is part of a larger trend in reimagining experiences centered on human interaction at a time when large gatherings are mostly banned.

We solicit presentation through a Call for abstracts, just as in-person previous conferences.
We offer reduced group registrations for institutions who wanted to sign up 3-5 or more attendees.
