Abbreviation: IRSEC'18

The Sixth Edition of the International Renewable and Sustainable Energy Conference (IRSEC’18) aims to provide an international forum to facilitate discussion and knowledge exchange of the state-of-the-art research findings and current and future challenges and opportunities related with all facets and aspects of renewable and sustainable energy. The target public of IRSEC’18 includes all interested people from academia, industry and government, particularly, researchers, policy-makers, engineers, PhD and Masters students and other specialists interested in all issues related to renewable and sustainable energy.

Submission Guidelines

Papers will be peer-reviewed, and selected based on their originality, technical strength and topical relevance. One of the authors of an accepted submission must attend the conference and present their work as a condition of publication. A dedicated session of the conference will be held for the presentation of posters.
The following rules must strictly respected:

  • Regular Paper: 6 pages (Max 2 extra pages allowed at additional cost : by 8 pages).

  • Authors should make sure that the English of their papers meets the required standard.

  • No hyperlinks should be included in the document (e. g., clickable website addresses in the references).

  • The quality of figures, photos and tables is also a very important requirement for the publication.

  • It is also the obligation of the authors to make sure that all sources of the research used in their papers have been adequately referenced. Papers with any kind of plagiarism will be systematically excluded from publication in IEEExplore. IEEE has a very strict policy against plagiarism in all its publications and it publishes on a regular basis a black list of authors who are banned from publishing in its journals and in the DL owing to plagiarism.
