Papers are sought for SEB'10 on a range of renewable energy
and sustainability related topics. In addition the conference will
explore the following innovative themes:-
- The application of intelligent sensing, control, optimisation
and modelling techniques to sustainability
- The technology of sustainable buildings
and combining these threads
- The Intelligent Building

Consisting of plenary keynote talks by experts, oral and poster
presentations, invited sessions and workshops, SEB'10 will provide
an exciting forum for the presentation of the results of new and
original research on the subject, and discussions on this important

Invited Sessions have been accepted on:-
- Microgeneration Systems for Domestic Combined Heat and Power
- Intelligent Agents for Sustainability in Energy and Buildings
- Intelligent Energy Systems
- Sustainable Energy and the Electricity Supply Utilities

General Track themes include:-
- Solar and Wind Energy
- Technologies for Sustainable Buildings
- Building Energy Efficiency and Performance
- Clean and Renewable Energy Technology

-- Call for Abstracts -----------------------------------------------

Authors are invited to abstracts of up to 2 pages in length on the
conference topics and related subjects.

All contributions must be of high quality, original and not
published elsewhere or submitted for publication during the review
period. On acceptance of the abstract full papers will be invited
for publication in the proceedings by Springer-Verlag in their
Engineering Series and indexed in ISI conference publications, EI,
INSPEC, etc. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit
extended versions for publication in special editions of various

-- Conference Topics -----------------------------------------------

The following topics are relevant to SEB'10, however this list
is not intended to be exclusive:-

* Renewable energy technologies: photo-voltaics, solar thermal,
biomass, geothermal systems. Micro-wind turbines, horizontal
and vertical axis aero-generators. On-site, off-grid,
grid-supplemented generation systems; combined heat and power
(CHP) and micro-CHP systems.

* Control and optimisation of renewable energy systems:
sensors and instrumentation technology, virtual sensors;
smart monitoring and control using intelligent systems;
high-efficiency switching systems; highly-efficient voltage
conversion systems; novel high efficiency distribution systems
and low voltage busses.

* High efficiency power storage systems: battery systems;
reversible fuel cells; flywheel systems; super-capacitors.

* Novel primary sources: bio-mass generation schemes; Stirling
cycle engines; bio-fuelled diesel generators.

* Applications to building services: heating and ventilating control
systems for reduced energy use; building management systems;
low energy building technology; low energy lighting systems;
high-output light LED lighting systems; passive solar heating systems.

* Energy modelling schemes: life cycle analysis methodologies;
tools and life cycle analysis; triple-bottom-line analysis.

-- Call for Invited Session & Workshop Chairs -----------------------

We invite senior scientists to organise invited sessions of 6 or more
papers on a specific sub-topic within the scope of the conference to
be presented as a half or full day session or workshop. See
http://seb10.sustainedenergy.org for more details.

-- Industrial Round Table and Exhibition ----------------------------

Round table discussions will provide a forum for stakeholders to
discuss matters of interest. An exhibition for trade suppliers of
equipment relevant to the conference will be held. Manufacturers
and retailers are invited to contact the
conference organisers for details of opportunities to exhibit to
the international audience that will attend the conference.

-- Programme Committee ----------------------------------------------

An international programme committee is currently being formed.
