International Energy Workshop

Call for papers: Deadline for submission: February 1st, 2012. The 31st edition of the International Energy Workshop (IEW) will be held at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, on June 19-21, 2012.

The
IEW (www.internationalenergyworkshop.org)
is a leading conference for the international energy modeling community. In a
world of environmental and economic constraints, energy modeling is an
increasingly important tool for addressing the complexity of energy planning
and policy making. The IEW provides a venue for scholars and researchers to
compare quantitative energy projections, to understand the reasons for
diverging views of future energy developments, and to observe new trends in
global energy production and consumption.
