The conference will be held from 27-30 October 2013 in Budapest, Hungary. This conference is one of the key contributions to European Physical Society (EPS) initiatives in energy. It is jointly organized with the European Materials Research Society (E-MRS), and the European Association of Chemical and Molecular Sciences (EuCheMS).

An exciting plenary program has been put together by the chairmen, L. Sarkadi, President of the Hungarian Chemical Society, and N. Kroó, President of the Hungarian Physical Society. Speakers include:
  • Pál Kovacs - Hungarian State Secretary
  • Robert-Jan Smits - DG Research representative
  • Romana Jordan - European Parliament, ITRE
  • Stefan Weitemeyer, NEXT ENERGY - EWE Research Centre for Energy Technology, Germany
  • Alberto Loarte, ITER Organization, France
  • Harald Bolt, Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH, Germany

The full plenary and invited speaker program is available on the Invited Speaker web page.

We urge scientists and students in energy research to consider attending this conference. The European Energy Conference and the Joint EPS-SIF International School on Energy alternate in odd and even years. Both of these high level scientific events are important for the visibility and impact of the EPS in the rapidly expanding field of energy.
