Call for Papers
The IEEE International Energy Conference (ENERGYCON) covers a broad range of electric power and energy systems topics, will continue the tradition of the past editions organized in Bahrain, Italy, Croatia, Belgium, and Cyprus. The 6th edition of the conference will take place in one of the beautiful Mediterranean countries, Tunisia, known for its golden beaches, sunny weather and affordable luxuries, on April 13-16, 2020. It is organized by the IEEE Tunisia Section, IEEE Region 8, and IEEE Africa Council. The conference is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Power and Energy Society, and IEEE Industry Applications Society, IEEE Power Electronics Society, and IEEE Industrial Electronics Society.
ENERGYCON is dedicated to experts carrying out research focused on energy and power systems. It has already become one of the central events for discussion on the application of electronics, instrumentation, information and communication technology to the energy industry.
ENERGYCON provides an opportunity to scientists, professional engineers and engineering students to present their work, publish their results, exchange ideas and network for future scientific and industrial collaborations.
Extended Abstracts (2 pages), Short (4 pages), and Full (6 pages) accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings if at least one author is registered and if the paper is presented at the conference (in compliance with IEEE rules). The short and full papers of the conference proceedings will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library and appear in the Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) – an integrated index within Web of Science.
