Call for Papers

Presentation of Paper

 

To submit a paper for the Workshop of 2016, upload an abstract of maximum 3,000 characters (free style) between 11 February and 31 May 2016.  

After a thorough reviewing process by the International Advisory Committee authors will be notified of the acceptance of their papers by the end of July 2016.

Final papers must then be submitted online by 15 September 2016.

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 978-3-9816549-3-6).

 

Selection of Best Papers

 

logo IET Journal

Each year, the best 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.
