Dear Participant of the IBSCE 2017,

It is great pleasure to invite you to be part of the International Bioenergy (Shanghai) Conference and Exhibition 2017. This is the second in a series of conferences designed to bring together from around the world scientists and industry implementing bioenergy technologies as part of the expansion of renewable fuels, energy and bioproducts. The conference programme has in part been based on the successful format used for the European Biomass Conference that takes places annually in Europe.
[...] The conference involves close interactions between the pure science, innovation and industrial exploitation of the results of research, with the overall target of achieving economic and environmental sustainability in the developing low-carbon economy.

There will be a focus on how scientific innovations can be efficiently exploited, what are the needs of the cutting edge industries leading the way with scaling up of technologies, in which ways different renewable sectors can integrate to provide optimum sustainable solutions for replacing fossil energy.

The Call for Abstracts is open until 3rd February 2017. Please have a close look at the outline topics in the programme and see how you can best contribute to the closer interaction whether you are a researcher, an industry person or indeed a policy maker working with biomass.

We look forward to assembling an exciting and rewarding programme for Shanghai in April 2017.

Call for Papers Open: Conference Topics

Submitting an abstract gives you the opportunity to showcase your research project, case study, policy/market update, best practice in front of biomass and bioenergy professionals.

Conference Topics



Apply for Journal Publication

The IBSCE is proud to announce its publishing partnership with the renowned research and applications publication "International Journal of Oil, Gas and Coal Technology", published by Inderscience Publishers. Through the arrangement, a selected number of the highest scored abstracts across all of the conference topics will be invited to be peer reviewed and published in the journal in the special issue "IBSCE 2017 - Special Issue on: Bioenergy and Biofuels in Asia and Europe". This publication will be in addition to the publication in the IBSCE 2017 Conference Proceedings.

International Journal of Oil, Gas and Coal Technology: Special Issue on Bioenergy and Biofuels in Asia and Europe

Find here the special issue of the International Journal of Oil, Gas and Coal Technology, including a number of scientific articles initially selected among more than 200 contributions during the IBSCE 2015 Asian Bioenergy Conference 2015, held in Shanghai in October 2015.

This special issue aims at providing a small, first, qualified contribution to the scientific dialogue between Asia and Europe on that matter. Eight scientific articles comprise this special issue. The topics presented range from GHG/bioenergy policy analysis, to thermochemical and biochemical processing of biomass, upgrading and use of liquid fuels, and production of biochemicals.

Conference Proceedings

All contributions (full papers, slide presentations and poster presentations) presented and submitted at the International Bioenergy (Shanghai) Conference and Exhibition 2017 will be included in the Conference Proceedings.

The proceedings enhance the availability and citability (DOI name) of the scientific contributions presented at the IBSCE and constitute a comprehensive source of state-of-the-art information and vital point of reference for researchers, technologists, decision-makers, entrepreneurs and all involved in the bioenergy sector.

Citability of Papers

All submitted final papers of plenary, oral and poster presentations will be published online and coded by a digital identifier (DOI code) provided by the German National Library of Science and Technology. This guarantees an unequivocal and permanent identification and citability of all papers of the IBSCE Conference.

Apply for Student Awards

The International Bioenergy (Shanghai) Conference and Exhibition 2017 (IBSCE) encourages high-quality work amongst young researchers. The IBSCE Students Awards will be presented in recognition of the most remarkable and outstanding research work in the field of Bioenergy.
