Call for Papers

The Abstract Submission Deadline has elapsed.

No further submissions will be accepted.

You are invited to submit papers and posters on research, development, demonstration, analysis, or economics related topics within the scope of the conference. It is important that sufficient information is included in your abstract to allow it to be fairly assessed. The abstract must represent the actual paper/poster that will be presented at the conference. In the selection of papers for the conference, emphasis will be placed on the presentation of results of current practical/technical studies. The late replacement of papers or posters will not be accepted. A condition of submission and acceptance is that at least one author will register. Presenters will be required to pay the full registration fee.

The call for papers is being co-ordinated by the organisers, with the editors of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on CO2 Capture and Storage. The Organisers intend to have the papers available in time for consideration in this report which will be published in 2005.

Abstracts should be received by the conference organisers no later than 31st December 2003. Acceptances will be sent out by the end of February 2004.

The conference language is English.


The main technical themes for the conference are:

  • Capture and transmission of CO2
    This theme will focus on new developments in the areas of CO2 capture and transmission. Topics to be considered include: new technical developments leading to reductions in the costs of capture and technical aspects of CO2 transport systems
  • Storage of CO2
    This theme will include new developments in the areas of CO2 geological, mineral and ocean storage. Topics to be considered could include: presentation of new results from research and monitoring projects, new demonstration opportunities, source/storage opportunity matching activities as well as discussion on regulatory and safety issues.
  • Comparison of greenhouse gas reduction options
    This important theme will aim to compare the options available to reduce all greenhouse gases across all sectors. Topics to be considered could include: energy modelling studies, economic assessments of technologies, multi gas assessments and strategies, non-CO2 gases and renewable energy options.
  • Reducing greenhouse gas emissions from Industry
    This theme will aim to present examples of greenhouse gas reduction actions undertaken or planned by industry. Individual topics that could be considered include: industry case studies, energy efficiency improvements and new technology developments. Case studies would be encouraged from developing countries that discuss issues such as technology transfer, examples of CDM or JI actions and discussion of issues concerned.
  • Zero emission technologies and decarbonised energy carriers from carbon based fuels
    This topic would focus on new developments in the field of zero emission technology and the production and use of energy carriers from the decarbonisation of fuels. Topics to be covered could include: technology developments, technology comparisons, techno-economic assessments, system studies and future demonstration opportunities.

In addition to the main technical themes, papers are also invited that focus on both international and national and industry led policy initiatives, covering all greenhouse gases. Papers on other CO2 sequestration and utilisation, options will also be considered.
