The Sustainable Energy Research Group is pleased to announce the 2nd International Conference on Energy and Cities (ICEC 2020), originally planned to be held at the University of Southampton from 1st to 3rd July 2020.

In view of the worldwide health emergency linked to COVID-19, the next edition of the International Conference of Energy and Cities (ICEC2020) is postponed.

We aim to hold the next ICEC at a time and place which will be conducive to allow interactions and participation face to face in a healthy and supportive environment. The management team will make every effort to make this edition of ICEC happen as soon as feasible.

About ICEC

Cities are at the centre of the climate and sustainability challenge of the twenty-first century. Energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions of cities are over 75% of global totals putting cities in a critical position to propel and lead society towards the low carbon pathways required in the 2020s and 2030s.

Building on the success of last year’s conference, this event will present recent research and development and debate the key issues related to resources and their consumption in cities. The event will provide networking opportunities with local authorities as well as leading academics, practitioners and stakeholders.

Call for Papers

We warmly invite you to submit an abstract proposal for an oral or poster presentation within the following themes:

  • Energy technologies engineering pathways for reliable and affordable sources of renewable energy to maximise use of renewable resources;
  • Smart cities and data state of the art in smart cities and data analytics, understanding of the impact of artificial intelligence on the smartness of cities;
  • Evolving cities and infrastructure developing engineering solutions for planning and management to make cities more sustainable, resilient and inclusive;
  • Energy, behaviour and wellbeing the role of perception and behaviour in the design and evaluation of healthy indoor and outdoor environments.

We actively encourage contributions from local authorities, researchers across academic disciplines and from post-graduate research students. Abstract submission is open until 31st March 2020. Click here to submit an abstract.
