Instructions to authors

Abstracts (Deadline June 16, 2019)

The abstract should contain the title of the paper, contact person, authors and their affiliations, keywords, and a summary of the paper. Within three weeks of the deadline for receipt of the abstract, the contact person will be notified if the abstract is accepted or not.

Detailed instructions on the format and submission procedures for abstracts and papers can be found at: https://pscc2020.pt/template/

Abstracts should be submitted here: http://pscc.epfl.ch

Full Papers (Deadline September 15, 2019)

After acceptance of the abstract, authors will be requested to submit the full paper. Papers accepted for PSCC are normally no longer than 7 pages. However, in exceptional cases, up to 2-3 additional pages can be accepted if the extra length is required to fully but still succinctly develop and explain an idea and its application. In such cases, the authors will be required to briefly explain why the extra length is necessary.

Detailed instructions on the format and submission procedures for abstracts and papers can be found at pscc.epfl.ch Note that only electronically submitted abstracts and papers are considered.

All papers are evaluated by the Technical Programme Committee through a fair and rigorous procedure in order to guarantee a technical program of outstanding quality. In order to be published in the final conference proceedings, all accepted papers must be presented at the conference by one of the named authors. English will be used for all printed material, as well as for the technical presentations and discussions.

All accepted and presented papers will be posted publicly on the PSCC website ( https://pscc-central.epfl.ch/ ) and included in a special issue of the journal Electric Power Systems Research (EPSR) indexed by ScienceDirect. Accordingly, all authors must agree to the EPSR copyright policies available at this URL: https://www.elsevier.com/about/policies/copyright
