Instructions to authors

Abstracts (Deadline July 2, 2017 July 9, 2017) – The abstract should contain the title of the paper, contact person, authors and their affiliations, keywords, together with a summary of the paper. Within three weeks of the deadline for receipt of the abstract, the contact person will be notified if the abstract is accepted or not.

Full Papers (Deadline October 8, 2017 October 18, 2017) – After acceptance of the abstract, authors will be requested to submit the full paper that should normally not exceed seven pages.

Detailed instructions on format and submission of abstracts and papers can be found at

It should be noted that only electronically submitted abstracts and papers are considered.

All papers are evaluated by the Technical Programme Committee through a fair and rigorous procedure in order to guarantee a technical program of outstanding quality. In order to be published in the final conference proceedings, all accepted papers must be presented at the conference by one of the named authors. English will be used for all printed material, as well as for the technical presentations and discussions.

The IEEE Power & Energy Society is a Technical Co-Sponsoring Party of this conference. The conference proceedings will be published in IEEE Xplore.
