Optimization of Renewable Energy Resources (ORER)

Papers should formulate studies and implementations that improve the use of renewable energy resources. Optimization may be technological or control based. Although the papers can deal with any renewable energy sources, contributions for photovoltaic systems are specially welcomed. (The CFP on the journal website).Extended versions of selected papers will be publishable in REFocus (Elsevier)

Organized by: Prof. Mohamed Faisal (

Wind as a Source of Energy (WSE)

The session  accepts research papers on rotors and blades aerodynamics; machine subsystems and components design; power generation control and transmission; wind potential estimation and evaluation, wind speed measurement and recording. Extended versions of selected papers will be publishable in WEJ (SAGE).

Organized by: Pr. Mohamed Kesraoui (
