Any queries regarding submission of papers may be sent to this address.  The timetable for submission is given on the Important Dates page.

Proceedings: All contributed papers and keynote lectures will be published by Begell House Inc. in a Proceedings CD-ROM. They will also be available for download from the Begell House Electronic Data Center (http://www.edata-center.com/).

Journal publication: Begell House also publishes the journal International Journal of Energy for a Clean Environment, IJECE. The principle aim of the Journal is to describe, compare, and evaluate innovative technologies that will maximize the efficiency of energy production and utilization while minimizing the production of undesirable emissions into our atmosphere, our earth, and our water supply. Fundamental and applied contributions to the IJECE are encouraged, and papers from industry and end users are welcomed. IJECE deals with interconnected themes covering the reduction of local and global environment degrading emissions while increasing the production of high quality energy. It is an ISI reviewed journal.

Therefore, SEBUA-12 authors who believe their papers are of journal (archival) standard are invited to advise the Secretariat of ICHMT if they wish their papers to be considered for publication in International Journal of Energy for a Clean Environment, as well as for presentation and publication at SEBUA-12. (Note: Begell House Inc. will own the copyright of both the journal and the proceedings, eliminating the problem of duplicate publication so that the same paper may, subject to review, appear in both places.)
