Call for Papers

Presentation of Paper

To submit a paper, send an abstract of maximum 3,000 characters (free style) as well as a brief summary of the nature of your work and level of expertise between 11 February and 8 June 2014 (extended deadline!) to our:

After a thorough reviewing process by the International Advisory Committee authors will be notified of the acceptance of their papers by 20 July 2014.

Final papers must then be submitted online by 15 September 2014.

As the conference language is English, all abstracts have to be written in English.

Authors will pay a reduced workshop fee.

All participants are responsible for paying their own travel and hotel expenses.

All presented papers and posters will be published in the workshop proceedings (ISBN 978-3-98 16549-0-5).

Note: The best 15 papers from the Solar & Wind Integration Workshop will be selected for a special issue of the
IET Renewable Power Generation.
The selected papers nevertheless have to go through the review process of the journal, which will lead to changes compared to the original version presented at the conference.

The selected papers of the last Solar & Wind Integration Workshop can be found here.

Please select a subject for your work from the list of conference topics.
