ASES SOLAR 2017 Call for Participation
The 46th Annual National Solar Conference of the American Solar Energy Society (SOLAR 2017) will be held at the University of Colorado, Denver, from October 9-12, 2017. The conference will include technical sessions, forum discussions, plenary panels, workshops, fast-paced "~switch" presentations, public solar displays, and networking events.
Unlike past years, SOLAR 2017 will be an integral part of the two-week Solar Decathlon, an event in which The U.S. Department of Energy challenges collegiate teams to design and build full-size, solar-powered homes that push the limits of innovation.
ASES is working with Decathlon organizers to create additional educational, sustainability, and networking events and we are calling on you to participate and present! Submission deadline: April 1, 2017.
SOLAR 2017 Opportunities to Present
You may submit abstracts or proposals for the following types of presentations, using the SOLAR 2017 topical areas (listed further below) as a guide:
Posters: This is a great way to get exposure to a larger audience: your poster will be up for the entire SOLAR 2017 conference, in addition to your presence at the poster session.
Technical sessions: ASES will review your abstract(s) and assign them to the appropriate technical sessions. You will have an additional opportunity to have your work placed into the conference proceedings.
~switch talks: you have only 5 minutes to share your ideas or research in this popular fast-paced session.
Forums: you propose a topic as well as organize the speakers to address this topic. A limited number of time slots are available for Forums.
Workshops: if you are a trainer or teacher and wish to propose an educational workshop, we will allot time either before or after the ASES conference (NOT during the conference) for workshops. Workshops will have registration fees separate from the conference fees, and teachers/trainers may be paid a stipend from these fees.
