July 1st 2020, University of Kara

Sustainability through Smart Applications


Renewable Energy Systems are, in times of climate change, a fundamental technology to reduce the usage of climate-damaging fossil energy sources with limited availability and replaces them width sustainable energy sources. Furthermore, regenerative energy sources can bring solutions to power hamlets as “off-the-grid electricity solution” in regions without power supply. Together with the increasing role of digitization and the development of smart applications, new technologies arise, which will play an ever-increasing role in future energy issues. This paradigm shift places new demands on research and education and stretches well beyond national borders. The Conference forms a platform for addressing these topics and for exchanging scientific expertise and pedagogical approaches within university teaching.

Prospective authors are invited to submit an abstract of their contribution, which will be reviewed within a double-blind review process. Once the paper is accepted, the authors are asked to rework their paper according to the reviews and submit the full paper or poster contribution before the final paper submission deadline. All accepted works will be eligible for an award in the respective category, except those whose author or paper does not meet the requirements.
