The 2 conferences present the work and achievements of young researchers in the fields of biomass and energy efficiency. They offer an opportunity to interact with researchers and industry experts from all over the world.
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.
The World Sustainable Energy Days (WSED) are an annual conference held at the end of February/beginning of March in Wels/Austria. With more than 650 participants from over 50 countries each year, the World Sustainable Energy Days are one of Europe's largest annual conferences on sustainable energy.
The target groups for presenters at this conference are:
Papers could be submitted by researchers born after 1985.
In addition to individuals, groups from the same or different universities or research organisations are invited to submit joint papers. In case of selection of the paper, the organiser will support the participation of max. 3 young researchers per selected paper. Papers submitted by groups should mainly be based on work carried out by young researchers.
In "normal conference years" (not 2021), the organiser of the WSED, the OÖ Energiesparverband, covers the costs of accommodation, meals, participation and local transport for up to 60 selected participants. The participants must cover their travel costs.
The 2 best contributions are honoured with the awards "Best Young Energy Efficiency Researcher" and "Best Young Biomass Researcher". The researchers will receive 1,000 Euro each as prize money. The award committee will select the winners among the papers selected for oral presentation (there is no need for a separate submission for the award). Notification of the winners is expected by the end of January 2021.
