2018 Annual Workshop

ONSEP 2018 Annual Workshop - Call for Papers

The Ontario Network for Sustainable Energy Policy (ONSEP) brings scholars together from a variety of disciplinary and methodological perspectives for its annual workshop focused on energy policy. This is the ninth workshop of ONSEP, a network of researchers dedicated to developing a greater understanding of the policies, technologies and strategies surrounding sustainable energy.

The workshop welcomes unpublished working papers that focus on analysis and evaluation of energy policies, with an aim of promoting understanding and discussion of effective approaches to reducing the environmental burden of the energy system. Although we especially welcome papers with a focus on Ontario, we also welcome papers that focus on the application of energy policies in other jurisdictions.

We are receptive to a wide range of perspectives and methods including but not limited to empirical research, theory development, formal theoretical modeling, law, sociology, planning, and experimental methods. Papers presented at our previous workshops have come from a variety of disciplines including political science, economics, management, law, geography, environmental studies, and engineering. Papers spanning multiple disciplines are especially encouraged. 

Interested individuals are invited to submit a title and 500-word abstract before 28 February 2018. Abstracts should elaborate on the key contributions of the work, the stage of the work (i.e., work in progress) identify whether it is conceptual or empirical, outline the research approach that is applied, and provide detail on the current stage of the project.  Authors should identify their position/affiliation and who will present at the workshop if the paper is accepted. Applicants will be notified whether their paper is accepted for presentation at the workshop by 15 March 2018. Successful applicants will then have until 31 March 2018 to register for the workshop. Failure to register by this time may mean that their acceptance will be withdrawn, and that their paper slot may be offered to another applicant.

While paper presenters are not obliged to produce a complete, written paper for the workshop, they are expected to make a presentation using slides and/or a handout. All presenters will be encouraged to submit their materials (e.g., their slides) to the workshop organizers no later than one week after the workshop’s conclusion, so that they may be posted on the ONSEP website.

Registration fees will be $550 per person, with an option of discounted registration fees of $400 (single room) and $325 (shared room) available to full-time students. Registration covers accommodation for two nights as well as all meals for the duration of the workshop. Information, including programs and presentations at past workshops, is available at http://onsep.org/annual-workshop

Abstracts should be submitted online via the portal on the ONSEP website: http://www.onsep.org/annual-workshop/2018/abstract-submission

For questions, please contact:  Stephen Hill (ONSEP Chair), [email protected]

Deadline: 
Thursday, January 18, 2018 - 09:45 to Wednesday, February 28, 2018 - 09:45

Abstract Submission - 2018

Welcome to the abstract submission form for the 2018 ONSEP Annual Workshop. The workshop welcomes unpublished working papers that focus on analysis and evaluation of energy policies, with an aim of promoting understanding and discussion of effective approaches to reducing the environmental burden of the energy system. Although we especially welcome papers with a focus on Ontario, we also welcome papers that focus on the application of energy policies in other jurisdictions.

Abstracts should elaborate on the key contributions of the work, the stage of the work (i.e., work in progress) identify whether it is conceptual or empirical, outline the research approach that is applied, and provide detail on the current stage of the project.  Authors should identify their position/affiliation and who will present at the workshop if the paper is accepted. Applicants will be notified whether their paper is accepted for presentation at the workshop by 15 March 2018. Successful applicants will then have until 31 March 2018 to register for the workshop. Failure to register by this time may mean that their acceptance will be withdrawn, and that their paper slot may be offered to another applicant.

While paper presenters are not obliged to produce a complete, written paper for the workshop, they are expected to make a presentation using slides and/or a handout. All presenters will be encouraged to submit their materials (e.g., their slides) to the workshop organizers no later than one week after the workshop’s conclusion, so that they may be posted on the ONSEP website.

Good luck!
