|Here is an opportunity to participate in a session that Genome Atlantic will be sponsoring at the upcoming Energy3 Conference in October in Halifax. The session will focus on Genomics Applications in Energy Development. This could include applications for environmental assessment, remediation, exploration, asset integrity, biofuels, etc. [Conference website] [Submit abstract]
Energy3‘s call for abstracts is your opportunity to be a part of the largest and most significant event of the year for Canada’s evolving energy industry.
Are you working on innovative projects related to the energy industry? If so, we want to hear from you!
Researchers are now invited to submit abstracts for both oral presentations and poster presentations outlining their research & development associated with the following chosen energy related themes. Your submission does not need to fall under one specific theme; we welcome submissions from all different perspectives.
We encourage abstracts from academia (both students and faculty), associations, companies, communities, governments, research associations, and any other institution with a passionate understanding or interest in any of our chosen energy related topics:
Program Topics – Oral Presentations
Genomic Applications for Energy Development
Genome Evolution & Environmental Genomics
Geoscience Approaches to Facilitating Exploration & Development
Geodynamics – Rift to Drift
Stratigraphy & Sedimentology
Geochemistry & Petroleum Systems
Environmental Monitoring of Tidal Energy
Fish & Marine Mammal Interactions with TISEC Devices
Fish, Lobster, Marine Mammal & Seabird Monitoring
Technologies & Techniques
Clean Tech R&D
New Energy Vehicles / Electric Vehicles
Zero Carbon Urban Design/Decarbonizing Cities & Regions
Coal Bed Methane
Offshore / Onshore Wind
Solar Cell Energy, Materials & Technology
Biomass Potentials & Characterization
Waste to Energy
Emergence of AI & Big Data
Big Data Infrastructure
Program Topics – Poster Presentations
Offshore/Onshore Oil & Gas – Geoscience, engineering, safety, carbon capture, data processing, hydraulic fracturing, coal bed methane, LNG, pipelines, genomics, decommissioning, ROV/AUVs, etc.
Marine Renewable Energy – Tidal, wave, offshore wind, run of river, genomics, hydrodynamic modelling, marine life environmental effects monitoring, subsea connections, and marine operations improvements such as ROV/AUVs, corrosion, biofouling, moorings, etc.
Renewable Energy – Onshore wind, solar, biomass, biofuels, hydrogen, waste to energy, etc.
Clean Tech Innovation – Nuclear, smart grid/mini grids/grid infrastructure design, smart homes/cities/communities, AI, big data, energy security, clean transportation, nanotechnology, energy efficiency, sustainability, recycling, storage, etc.
Indigenous Participation – social/community benefits, regulatory requirements, capacity building, case studies
Abstracts should be written and focused on meeting the following objectives:
Showcase advances in energy research
Share the latest research developments
Focus on recent progress by researchers
Relate research from other relevant industries
Identify new research opportunities
Submission Criteria & Guidelines:
Every effort will be made to accept quality abstracts that address the identified areas of interest and meet the standards exercised by the Organizing Committee, but submission is expected to be competitive and authors are encouraged to consider how their contribution may best fit and to ensure that it truly represents the value of their contribution.
Abstract Format / Authors Instructions:Abstracts must be submitted in PDF format only by July 22nd, 2019 to the following FTP sites:Call for Abstracts (Oral Presentations – https://oera.sharefile.com/r-r704ae3f0e524d15b Call for Abstracts (Poster Presentations) – https://oera.sharefile.com/r-rd0fc9defb434547a Abstracts must be prepared using the provided template and guidelines.Submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed by experts in the field who have been selected by the Organizing Committee.Authors will be informed of acceptance of their extended abstract by August 1, 2019 and any associated peer review comments will be forwarded to the author.Revised abstracts will be must be submitted by August 9, 2019.
Sessions are 60 minutes in length and will have 3-4 speakers. Each speaker will have 15 minutes for their presentation. A 10-15 minute question and answer period will conclude the session following all of the presentations. Only one speaker per abstract will be allowed to participate in the presentation and will be acknowledged in the Conference Program. Co-authors can be listed in the speaker’s PowerPoint presentation.
Due to the large number of abstracts that energy3 receives for presentations at the conference, and the limited number of speaking slots that are available, the poster session provides an alternative medium for presenting your work to a large number of delegates. Poster presentations will be displayed in the exhibition hall throughout the duration of the exhibition. The poster session provides an excellent opportunity for authors and conference attendees to discuss interesting, innovative work or to discuss ongoing research. Authors will be limited to a maximum of 2 posters in this year’s poster session.
Conference speakers are eligible for a discount from the standard conference rates (CAD$125 + HST). Once speakers have been provided confirmation of participation in the conference, you will be required to complete your conference registration. Speakers will not be reimbursed for travel or accommodations.
