Proceedings: Registered and Presented papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Paper submissions: Papers must describe original work on any of the ENERGYCON related topics.

The submission and reviews will be handled through the Easy Chair conference management system. 


Manuscript length: 6 pages maximum. This is a strict limit for initial submission. During final submission of accepted papers, authors may purchase extra pages if they find it necessary to address the concerns of the reviewers.

Single blind reviewing: ENERGYCON follows a single-blind review process. Authors are required to include their names and affiliations in their papers as illustrated in the sample templates. Templates (Microsoft Word and LaTeX) can be found at the following link:

As the page indicates, IEEE has recently revised their LaTeX templates. If you had previously downloaded these templates please revisit this site to access the latest version.

Ethical Requirements for Authors

The conference committee requires that all authors wishing to present a paper declare that:

  • The paper is substantially original and that no paper substantially similar in content has been submitted or will be submitted to any other conference or journal during the ENERGYCON 2020 review period.
  • The paper does not contain any plagiarism, and
  • The paper will be presented by the author or a co-author in person.
