Conference objectives


The Conference aims at providing a forum for an analysis of the new developments and a new vision of the future framework for energy security and will try to define the energy priorities for the next years and the action to be taken.

Emerging energy market trends and technologies are driving new energy security concerns and renewing perennial challenges. While energy markets are currently well supplied, security risks continue to proliferate which may impact the balance in both the short and long terms. Technological advances in the energy sector to increase capabilities and capacity for production and distribution have created new vulnerabilities. The improvements regarding the European energy security have made great progress in the recent years, yet the continent remains vulnerable to supply disruptions, although the increased interconnectedness of energy infrastructure across Europe have had a mitigating impact. Efforts to reduce the use of fossil fuels to address climate change also pose security challenges.

In the past, geopolitics and the supply of oil and gas were the dominant factor determining energy security. Today, a broader and more complex spectrum of elements are interacting to both stabilize and threaten energy security.

This conference is an invitation with the goal of promoting research and information exchanges on energy security, providing a general look at the forces driving its transformation and at some of their effects. Many of them are different from anything we have seen in the past.

The Plenary sessions

The topics of the papers to be presented in the plenary sessions:
  • EU towards 2030 and energy concerns
  • Regulation of energy markets
  • Energy industry challenges to a low-carbon economy,the gas role in the transition
  • Sustainable mobility challenges for the transition targets
  • Grid security and new technologies
  • Europe Roadmap and the future strategies of the energy industry

The Concurrent sessions

Four of the 30 concurrent sessions will be devoted to the themes covered in the dual plenary sessions to present further papers on these subjects. The other themes will largely be identified from the clustering of relevant presentations submitted by the participants.   

Concurrent sessions will be organized from the accepted abstracts.

The range of topics proposed for submission is not limited, the authors may be encouraged by the Programme Committee to organize also specific sessions on topics different from the ones indicated below, for which you are cordially invited to send us your proposals.

Those interested in organizing sessions should propose the topic and the possible speakers to: aiee@aieeconference2019rome.eu;

To organize a special session, the number of the speakers should be at least 4 and no more than 5.

The abstracts proposed for the special session should be submitted, following the general submission rules, within
the deadline of September 10, 2019.

Proposed topics:

Europe energy road map to 2050
Climate policy and emission trading
Energy supply and security
Blockchain applications in the energy sector
The future of transportation
Access to energy
North-South cooperation on renewable energy
Energy vulnerability in developed countries
Gender equality for energy transition
The future energy demand

Abstract format

Submitted abstracts should be of one or two  pages in length, comprising:
(1) overview, (2) methods, (3) results and (4) conclusions.

All abstracts must conform to the standard template. At least one author from an accepted paper must pay the registration fees and attend the conference to present the paper. The lead author submitting the abstract must provide complete contact details - mailing address, phone, fax, e-mail, etc

Please send also a short CV (one page) to the conference secretariat after submitting your abstract.
The file should be sent to: assaiee@aiee.it
or info@aiee.it

While multiple submissions by individual or groups of authors are welcome, the abstract selection process will seek to ensure as broad participation as possible: each speaker is to deliver only one presentation in the conference. If multiple submissions are accepted, then a different co-author will be required to pay the speaker registration fee and present the paper.

The authors will be notified by September 20, 2019 of their submission status.

The submission of the full paper is not obligatory unless the author is interested to propose it for publication.


Conference proceedings

AIEE will publish the conference proceedings on-line on the conference website, in one volume with open access.
The proceedings will contain the abstracts, it is not obligatory to submit the full paper, unless the author is interested to publish it in the volume.
