WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Organizers of the second IEEE Green Technology Conference have extended the deadline for receiving abstracts and technical papers to 7 December. Original work is sought on current and emerging renewable energy sources and energy-reduction technologies.

Contributed papers and abstracts are solicited in four tracks:

  • Energy generation and storage technologies
  • Energy resource utilization and water conservation
  • Green architecture and sustainable design
  • Environmental, legal, social, economic and political impacts

Accepted papers will be presented during the conference, 15-16 April at the Gaylord Texan Hotel and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, between Dallas and Fort Worth. They will be published in a conference proceedings CD and available through the digital library IEEE Xplore.

With increasing concerns about fossil fuel costs, supplies and emissions, scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs are more closely examining the commercial viability of renewable energy sources. These include solar, wind, nuclear, geothermal, hydro and biomass, among others, as well as alternative vehicle power sources such as fuel cells, gasoline and liquid natural gas electric hybrids and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. The conference aims to look at these technologies.

The inaugural IEEE Green Technology Conference was held in Lubbock, Texas, in April. For an overview of the event, see
