Call for Abstracts for Poster Papers
Abstracts are invited for poster papers to be presented at the Global Energy Systems Conference, venue: ‘Our Dynamic Earth’, Edinburgh, UK, June 26 - 28, 2013.
Abstracts should be a maximum of 200-words. Deadline for submission is 31st March 2013.
Abstracts will be reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers from the Scientific Advisory Committee.
Acceptance notification: 30th April 2013. Early submission of abstracts will assist the reviewing process.
Abstracts can cover completed work, or work-in-process, and must align with the topics of the conference: www.globalenergysystemsconference.com
Posters are invited in particular for the following areas:
(a). Energy supply or demand in a global context. This can be analysis of one or more energy sources, or demand measures, in terms of scope for global provision.
(‘Demand measure’ is a technology or policy that has the potential to reduce energy use.) Where the topic is more focussed it should have lessons of potential global relevance.
Of particular interest are:
- The changing supply picture for conventional fossil fuels.
- Scope for, and constraints on, supply of non-conventional fossil fuels.
- Scope for, and constraints on, supply of non-fossil energies.
- Significant aspects relating to energy demand.
(b). ‘Systems’ aspects of energy use or demand, especially if of a global perspective, including but not limited to: EROEI issues; net-energy, investment, or other rate-limiting constraints to adoption of energy supply or demand measures; current or likely future costs of supplies, or cost-savings of demand measures.
(c). Expected impact of energy use, or demand measures, on GHG emissions. (The conference is not soliciting papers on climate change per se, but posters examining predicted GHG emissions from energy sources, or demand policies, are welcome.)
(d). Energy supply and/or demand modelling; either in a global context, or - if the model is more focussed - where the results are potentially of global relevance.
(e). Analysis or modelling that links energy price to levels of economic activity; on a global, regional, or sector basis.
The abstract limit of 200 words excludes title, author name(s), affiliation(s), contact details of the submitting author - details which must be clearly supplied; as well as Table or Figure content and legends. Abstracts may contain Tables or Figures but the whole abstract should be no larger than one page of A4 using a legible font.
Abstracts must clearly explain the topic, and give an indication of findings or conclusions already made (or expected), so that adequate judgement can be made of the work. Acceptance / rejection will be on the basis of the abstract alone, and authors are responsible that posters brought to the conference are a reasonable match to the work described in the abstract.
Submit abstracts in MS Word, or in ‘.pdf’ format, to: firstname.lastname@example.orgDetails of poster maximum size, orientation (e.g., portrait), and suggested font will be provided nearer the date of the conference. Posters will need to be in English, well presented, and of a font size legible from a distance of 1 m. Authors may submit abstracts for more than one poster where appropriate.
