Call for papers

The SWC 2017 committee is happy to invite you to submit your abstract for the ISES Solar World Congress 2017 being held jointly with The IEA Solar Heating and Cooling (SHC) "International Conference on Solar Heating and Cooling for Buildings and Industry".

The extended deadline for abstract submission is April 02, 2017.

The themes and recommended topics for abstract submission and proceedings are as follows. If the research does not fit ideally into the topics but still broadly into the themes, please selected the best fitting theme/topic and the committee will determine where best to position the research.

Abstract selection

The Solar World Congress 2017 encourages authors to submit as many extended abstracts as they like. The highest-scoring abstract from each author will be selected by the Technical Program Committee for presentation (either oral or poster) at the joint conference. The Technical Program Committee will communicate with the authors about each additional accepted abstract if there are more than 1 to determine their presentation possibility.

Should the author wish to present a second/third abstract or one from a colleague who is not able to attend, this will be subject to a fee upon registration (80 USD). This fee is to cover the costs of the extra paper publication in the proceedings, while minimizing the registration price for all participants.

The authors’ registration fee covers the publication of his/her full paper in the conference proceedings, with an individual DOI number.  

We look forward to seeing many excellent quality extended abstracts submitted to the joint conference!

Submission guidelines

Please read the instructions carefully before starting the upload. Only abstracts which are handed in in finished form by the deadline will be considered for the review. Details on the requirements for abstracts and the review criteria are listed in the abstract template.

Depending on the quality of your abstract, you may be invited to present a poster or an oral presentation at the conference.

In case you are unfamiliar with the online submission procedure, we recommend that you submit your abstract well in advance of the deadline, to avoid any last-minute complications which could occur. Please note: It is possible to change the abstract after your first submission until the deadline in case of necessary updates. The conference language will be English. The guidelines, which also serve as a template for preparing the manuscript, can be downloaded here.
SWC 2017 and SHC 2017 use a blind reviewing process; do not give any details (such as author names or affiliation) in your extended abstract, in the filename or in the file properties that would reveal your identity!

Submission procedure

The abstract upload can be completed with just a few clicks! Please upload your abstract as an unprotected .pdf file. The length of the abstract may not exceed 3 pages. Papers which exceed 3 pages cannot be uploaded to the website!

When the upload is finished, the main author as well as the corresponding person will receive a confirmation e-mail with a username and password. Please keep this password for our other online services, e.g. your registration. Further information concerning your presentation will follow in a second e-mail before the conference.

If the e-mail address is incorrect, the confirmation e-mail cannot be sent to you. Please make sure that your contact information is up to date and free of typing errors. If you do not receive a confirmation mail following your abstract submission, please contact:
