The First International Conference on Advances in Renewable and Sustainable Energies


March 7-13, 2010 - Cancun, Mexico

Call for Papers

Replacing the classical energy with alternative renewable energy (green energy), such as bioenergy, eolian energy, or solar energy is an ecological and economic trend that suggests important socio-economic advantages: using native renewable resources, increasing of self-sufficiency rate of energy and promoting use of clean energy, and that way, polluting emissions to the air will be reduced.

Bioenergy is renewable energy derived from biological sources, to be used for heat, electricity, or vehicle fuel. Biofuel derived from plant materials is among the most rapidly growing renewable energy technologies. In several countries corn-based ethanol is currently the largest source of biofuel as a gasoline substitute or additive. Recent energy legislation mandates further growth of both corn-based and advanced biofuels from other sources. Growing biofuel demand has implications for U.S. and world agriculture.

Eolian energy is currently used throughout the world on a large scale. In the past decade, its evolution shows its acceptance as a source of generation, with expressive growth trends in the energy matrices in the countries where this source is used Eolian energy is renewable and has very low environmental impact. To generate it, there are no gas emissions, no effluent refuse, and no other natural resources, such as water, are consumed.

Photovoltaic technology makes use of the energy in the sun, and it has little impact on the environment. Photovoltaics can be used in a wide range of products, from small consumer items to large commercial solar electric systems.

BIOGREEN 2010, The First International Conference on Advances in Renewable and Sustainable Energies, bring together the challenging technical and regulation aspects for supporting and producing renewable energy with less or no impact on the ecosystems. There are several technical integration barriers and steps for social adoption and governmental legislation to favor and encourage this kind of energy.

The conference deals with technical papers presenting research and practical results, industrial small- and large-scale systems, challenging applications, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific topics on renewable energy, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the topics, short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

Posters are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the contribution type as poster.  Submissions are expected to be 6-8 slide deck. Posters will not be published in the Proceedings. One poster with all the slides together should be used for discussions. Presenters will be allocated a space where they can display the slides and discuss in an informal manner. The poster slide decks will be posted on the IARIA site.

For more details, see the Posters explanation page.

Work in Progress

Work-in-progress contributions are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the contribution type as work in progress.  Authors should submit a four-page (maximum) text manuscript in IEEE double-column format including the authors' names, affiliations, email contacts.
