2017/10/4-8 - 12th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems - SDEWES2017

 12th  Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems
Venue Dubrovnik

Can engineering solutions mitigate the climate change before we need to adapt? How can we build low carbon energy systems? How can we integrate water, energy, transport, waste and food systems so that we decouple development from growing use of resources? What are the societal and economic challenges before implementing clearly beneficial engineering solutions? What is the role of sustainable cities and regions?

These and many other questions are being asked and answered by researchers participating in the Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems (SDEWES Conference),

"If there are to be problems, may they come during my life-time so that I can resolve them and give my children the chance of a good life."
Kenyan proverb

also known as Dubrovnik Conference, an event devoted to scientists, engineers, policy makers, students and other interested parties in the field of sustainable development. The first six SDEWES Conferences were held in Dubrovnik. Following the great success of the 10th SDEWES Conference in Dubrovnik with over 1200 abstracts submitted and more than 500 participants from 65 countries, the next one, the 11th, took place in Lisbon, Portugal, with 694 abstracts and 304 participans from 51 countries. The 12th SDEWES Conference in Dubrovnik aims to live up to the success in previous years.

We are pleased to invite you to the
12th Conference on Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems (SDEWES2017)

which is going to be held in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik
from October 4-8, 2017.

The details about the Conference (important dates, conference fee, accommodation, contact addresses, etc.) can be found on the web site:

The scientific quality of the conferences is confirmed by the fact that leading international archival scientific journals, "Energy - The International Journal", "Applied Energy", "Journal of Cleaner Production", "Energy Conversion and Management", "Journal of Environmental Management", "Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews", "Waste Management & Research", "Thermal Science", "Journal of Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems", "International Journal of Sustainable Energy Planning and Management" and other have in the past dedicated and published special issues for selected and reviewed papers from the conferences, and some intend to do that also for the next SDEWES conference. The past publications resulting from the Conferences can be found at:

The SDEWES Conference 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

"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
The Report of the U.N. Brundtland Commission, Our Common Future, 1987.

as methods for assessing and measuring sustainability of development, regarding energy, transport, water, environment and food production systems nd their many combinations. Sustainability being also a perfect field for interdisciplinary and multi-cultural evaluation of complex system, the SDEWES Conference has, at the beginning of the 21st century, become a significant venue for researchers in those areas to meet, and originate, discuss, share, and disseminate new ideas.

The SDEWES Conference started in Dubrovnik, a city that sustained its living from peaceful trading and careful diplomatic balancing with its neighbours and competitors, managing to preserve its Mediterranean environment as it once was. Thanks to its unique position of connecting three continents, combination of mild climate, exceptional natural resources, rich history and culture and short distance to major emitting markets, the Mediterranean region is the number one tourism destination in the world, having approximately 300 million international tourist arrivals with projections of having 400 million in 2020 and 500 million in 2030. Thus, tourism is making tremendous pressure to energy, water and environment systems in the Mediterranean region. It is the main driver for over-construction and in combination with intensive agriculture based on irrigation that can use up to 80% of surface and ground water, which also causes chronic water shortages in some places. In the same time the region is rich with natural resources such us wind and solar energy.

We would highly appreciate your attendance, as well as promotion of the SDEWES Conference event among your colleagues and co-workers.

Please, forward this Call for Papers!

Authors willing to present a paper should submit an abstract in English, up to one page, using web form:

These abstracts will then be reviewed by the International Scientific Committee. The full papers will be directly submitted via electronic submission system.

Please, submit your Archival abstract before the December 22nd, 2016, deadline.

Other important dates are available on the conference web site.

If you have any question please send it to:

We are looking forward to your contributions and to see you in Dubrovnik!

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Neven Duic (Chair of the Local Organising Committee)
Prof. Zvonimir Guzovic (Secretary of the Conference)
