The call for abstracts for the 7th International Conference Energy & Meteorology is open! You can find all the information needed to submit on this page, including guidelines for authors, please ensure you read these below. The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to Friday 3rd February 2023.

Please note that there is an abstract submission fee of €30. In the unlikely event that your abstract is unsuccessful this fee will be refunded.

This call is based on standard abstracts and presentations only: no extended abstracts will be called for but a journal special issue is being considered. Specifically, the Committee is inviting papers to be submitted for the following conference sessions:

  • Climate and energy scenario modelling

6. Environmental Impacts of Energy Systems

  • Energy systems impacts on weather, climate and surrounding physical environments (e.g. effects on large scale climate, including air quality, energy islands)
  • Micrometeorology effects on power systems (e.g. on wind turbines, solar panels, power lines)
  • Environmental and social impacts of energy system planning and developments (e.g. turbine noise, PV panel flickering)

7. Weather and Climate Services for Energy

  • Frameworks for the provision of weather and climate services for energy (e.g. Copernicus Thematic Hub on Energy)
  • Building blocks, case studies, lessons learned and challenges in weather and climate services for energy
  • Collaborative approaches: Co-design, co-development and co-production of climate services, including delivery and visualisation tools
  • Stakeholder uptake and interaction approaches
  • The socio-economic value of weather and climate services
  • Business models for sustainable weather and climate services

8. Energy Policy, Programmes and Cross-sectoral Issues

  • Global perspectives: Green deal, Net Zero, Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), the Paris Agreement, …
  • Major national/international projects/network in energy and meteorology, including creating new, collaborations across organisations and sectors
  • Energy and climate policy (e.g. security issues, integrated assessment modelling, increase of renewables into the grid)
  • Ensuring an integrated meteorology and energy for rapidly increasing energy demand in emerging economies
  • The Climate–Energy–Water–Food nexus
  • Meteorological data and tools for energy use in transport (e.g. aviation)

9. Education/Training Programmes in Energy and Meteorology

  • Capacity building activities (e.g. Masters, Summer Schools, …)
  • Outreach activities for schools
  • Training for end-users in visual/interactive products of climate and energy services
  • Effective communication of meteorology for the energy industry

GUIDELINES FOR AUTHORS

The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to Friday 3rd February 2023.

Please note that there is an abstract submission fee of €30 including VAT, €24.59 excluding VAT (for companies within Italy and individual persons anywhere VAT applies, for companies outside of Italy no VAT applies). This is payable via Stripe, details will be included in the confirmation email sent upon submission. If your abstract is unsuccessful this fee will be refunded.

When submitting your abstract, please indicate the session that is best aligned with your abstract. Abstracts submitted can be for oral or poster presentations (please indicate your preference when submitting
your abstract). The Scientific Committee reserves the right to accept or reject abstracts. In addition, the Committee will endeavor to allocate accepted abstracts according to your oral/poster preference but this
cannot be guaranteed.

Posters will be displayed for the duration of the conference and there will be ample opportunity to discuss your presentation with delegates during scheduled poster sessions. There will
also be 1-minute oral presentations to summarise your poster. Oral presentations will be 15 minutes in total – 13 minutes for presentation, 1 minute for questions and 1 minute for change over of speakers.

Prizes will be awarded for The Best Student Paper (either oral or poster) and for the Best Poster.

  • The abstract must be no more than 500 words in length
  • Abstracts may include a simple table or figure
  • The abstract must include a succinct overview of the intent and purpose of the presentation
  • Preference will be given to papers outlining results of research or quality-related projects
  • References should be used sparingly
  • All abbreviations should be given in brackets after the first full use of the word
  • A structured abstract format is preferred (but not mandatory) with the following headings:
  • Objective & Background
  • Method
  • Principal Findings
  • Conclusion (or Discussion)

Note that it is a pre-requisite that the presenting author registers for a minimum of one day to ICEM 2023 for their abstract to be included in the conference program.

Please circulate this information as widely as possible and encourage your colleagues to submit papers to ICEM 2023!
