Intense study in renewable energy to be held at site of largest oil spill in history

In a state where oil and gas exploration shares economic dominance with commercial fishing in a sportsman’s paradise, issues for renewable energy loom large.

Now the eyes of the energy world will be focused on Louisiana’s capital in April 2011, as the Gulf coast identifies renewable energy. The city of Baton Rouge has teamed with Louisiana State University (LSU) to host the 2011 IEEE Green Technology Conference produced by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), IEEE-USA, IEEE Region 5, and the IEEE Baton Rouge Section. 

Scientists and engineers from all over the world are asked to submit papers to be considered part of the intense study at the event April 14-15, 2011 at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center. The public is welcome to attend by registering at the website

Contributed papers, particularly in the following areas, are solicited:

  • Energy Generation & Storage Technologies including nuclear, wind, solar, water, geothermal, biomass, energy harvesting and storage.
  • Energy Usage Reduction and Conservation including energy management, planning and forecasting, home and commercial automation, innovative HVAC and lighting.
  • Architectural and engineering sustainable designs, including strategies for sustainability, performance evaluation, use of green building components, system management.
  • Environmental, Legal, Social, Economic, and Political Impacts including emerging standards for renewable and reduced carbon emission energy sources, safety, technologies for developed and underdeveloped countries.
  • Smart Grid communication and control, evolution and integration of renewable and reduced emission energy sources.
  • Protection of the Environment, including oil spill prevention and control.

 Submissions in any of the identified track areas will be accepted by November 15, 2010 .

  • All submissions need to follow the IEEE conference paper template above and at at the conference web-site.
  • Must be submitted as PDF files using the on-line EDAS system ( using the acronym GTC'11.
  • The maximum manuscript length is six pages in double-column format.

 Send proposals for seminars and special sessions to Hsiao-Chun Wu, PhD, at .
