The Global Energy Transition Toward Decarbonization

Milan, 24-27 July, 2023 – Bocconi University

We are pleased to announce the

Call for Papers for the 18th IAEE European Conference “The Global Energy Transition Toward Decarbonization: a multi-scalar perspective and transformation”

Milan – 24-27 July, 2023 – Bocconi University

Call for Abstracts – Closed

 Deadline for abstract submission: April 3, 2023

Conference objectives

The main purpose of this conference will be to discuss the big changes and transformations in this transition period: the growing demand for renewables, disruption, innovation, the transition to a low carbon economy and the demand for electricity and gas.

There is a growing convergence between all energy sectors including power, transportation, infrastructure, oil and gas, renewable energy and smart cities initiatives.

Energy efficiency and renewable energy development are at the core of Europe’s commitment to a clean energy transition that serves the needs of citizens, economic development and the environment. Achieving a smart, socially fair and sustainable energy system requires strong policies, competitive businesses and technology innovation. Mastering the digital transformation of energy and buildings will be crucial for creating a thriving economy and for the success of the global clean energy transition.

As increased sector convergence and global attention to transitioning to a lower carbon economy intensifies, the purpose of this conference would be to reflect this global outlook and expand the focus of the dialogue to a broader, more comprehensive perspective of the issues energy sectors need to address in an era of deep transformation.

Who should attend

The conference is intended for:

  • Academics and scholars working in the fields of energy, natural resources or environmental economics
  • Policy makers and government officials, international institutions and regulatory agencies
  • Energy analysts working for local authorities, development agencies, consumer bodies, NGOs
  • Business leaders and practitioners

 Concurrent sessions

Concurrent sessions will be organized from accepted abstracts.
Authors wishing to make paper presentations during the Concurrent Sessions must submit an abstract that briefly describes the research topic to be presented.

Submitted abstracts should include (1)overview, (2) methods, (3) results and (4) conclusions, conforming to the structure outlined in the abstract template. Abstracts are limited to no more than two pages in length.

Submit your abstracts to: https://www.aiee.it/iaee_2023/abstract-submission/

Authors will be notified by May 15, 2023, of their paper status. Authors whose abstracts are accepted will have until June 30, 2023, to submit their full papers for publication in the conference proceedings.

Speakers should register no later than July 4th,2023.

While multiple submissions by individual or groups of authors are welcome, the abstract selection process will seek to ensure as broad participation as possible: each speaker is to deliver only one presentation in the conference. If multiple submissions are accepted, then a different co-author will be required to pay the speaker registration fee and present the paper.

Poster presentations are also encouraged for a dedicated Poster Session.

In either case, abstracts are subject to the same evaluation procedures, general guidelines and topics applied to papers.  Regardless of whether a poster or a paper presentation is requested by authors, it is the Conference Organizers’ discretion to decide whether an abstract will be part of the Concurrent or Poster Sessions.
