Topics/Call fo Papers

The 9th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems - SDEWES Conference, to be held at the sea between Venice and Istanbul in 2014, is dedicated to the improvement and dissemination of knowledge on methods, policies and technologies for increasing the sustainability of development by de-coupling growth from natural resources and replacing them with knowledge based economy, taking into account its economic, environmental and social pillars, as well as methods for assessing and measuring sustainability of development, regarding energy, transport, water, environment and food production systems and their many combinations. Sustainability being also a perfect field for interdisciplinary and multi-cultural evaluation of complex systems, the SDEWES Conference has at the beginning of the 21st century become a significant venue for researchers in those areas to meet, and initiate, discuss, share, and disseminate new ideas.
The Conference started in Dubrovnik, a city that sustained its living from peaceful trading and careful diplomatic balancing with its neighbours and competitors, the Most Serene Republic of Venice and the Ottoman Empire, managing to preserve its Mediterranean environment as it once was. It has involved the researchers from a difficult Southeast European region, but it has since attained a global reach. The 9th Conference will literally connect the two sides of Mediterranean, sailing from Venice to Istanbul and back, serving as the harbinger of an idea that only economically united Mediterranean can be sustainable.
That will also enable flexibility, since participants will be able to board full conference time (Venice-Istanbul-Venice), just half (Venice-Istanbul or Istanbul-Venice) or for those for whom the Schengen visa is an issue will be able to board and disembark in Istanbul.
The total cost to the participant will be similar or even lower than at our usual location, Dubrovnik, since lodging also includes meals.
