Conference Fees

The Young Energy Researchers Conference is free of charge.

Young researchers (born after 1985) are invited to submit contributions.
Deadline: 12 October 2020.


A high-level scientific committee selects papers for oral or poster presentation. In "normal conference years" (not 2021), the organiser of the WSED, the OÖ Energiesparverband, covers the costs of accommodation, meals, participation and local transport (3 conference days) for up to 60 selected participants. Submissions were invited from any scientific field (e.g. technology & engineering, economic and social sciences, architecture, law, arts, etc.) and must be in English only. The 2 best contributions are honoured with the awards "Best Young Energy Efficiency Researcher" and "Best Young Biomass Researcher" and will receive 1,000 Euro each as prize money. The Young Energy Researchers Conference builds upon seven very successful events (held from 2012 to 2020), each of them attracting contributors from more than 25 countries.
