Next Workshop 2015

The 5th International Workshop on Integration of Solar Power into Power Systems will be held in Brussels, Belgium, 19 - 20 October 2015.

Call for Papers

To submit a paper for the Workshop of 2015, upload an abstract of maximum 3,000 characters (free style) between 11 February and 11 May 2015. Final papers must then be submitted online by 31 August 2015 at the latest. As the conference language is English, all abstracts have to be written in English.

NOTE: Authors will pay a reduced workshop fee. All participants are responsible for paying their own travel and hotel expenses.
