First Announcement and Call for Papers
SolarPACES (Solar Power and Chemical Energy Systems) is pleased to announce the SolarPACES 2023 conference to be held from October 10 – 13, 2023, in Sydney, Australia.
SolarPACES is the premier international network advancing research, development, and commercial deployment of concentrating solar-thermal power (CSP) and related technologies.
Australia, with its high levels of solar radiation, strong activity in renewables deployment backed by national and state GHG reduction targets and policy measures, has recently announced three new solar thermal projects in the areas of power generation, fuels and industrial process heat. These projects are in addition to the leading research being conducted into high temperature solar thermal processes. The pilot scale falling curtain particle receiver and sodium receiver will be on display during the technical tour to CSIRO’s National Solar Energy Centre.
This conference will be the ideal place to learn about new projects, research endeavors and new market opportunities.
Please note the following important dates for SolarPACES 2023:
Abstract Deadline: May 5, 2023
Notification of Acceptance: June 16, 2023
Registration opens: August 8, 2023
SolarPACES 2023 Call for Papers
If you wish to present a paper, an extended abstract should be submitted electronically providing clear information that allows us to determine the significance and quality of your work. Review criteria include originality, scientific and technical quality of the results, and relevance to the conference topics. The abstract template which serves as a guideline is available here.
Please note that for this upcoming conference we encourage, as always, submission of full papers for accepted contributions for publication in the planned online proceedings, but do not require this. The organizing committee may request a justification for non-submission of full papers, to include, for example, preliminary results that are currently being prepared for a journal publication or reviews of previously published work that have not been presented previously to this CSP community.
Please submit your abstract by May 5, 2023!
