The 4th AIGE/IIETA International Conference and 13th AIGE 2019 Conference

The 4th AIGE/IIETA International Conference and 13th AIGE 2019 Conference on "Energy Conversion, Management, Recovery, Saving, Storage and Renewable Systems" is organized under the joint auspices of the AIGE and IIETA with the aim of providing technical information to their members and to the scientific and industrial community at large.

The joint Conferences shall foster a binding platform for researchers from universities, research institutions and industries as well as students to network, learn more and share their knowledge. They will pursue the goal of providing a forum for the exposure and the exchange of technical/scientific information.

The joint Conferences will give the opportunity to discuss the state of the art and to present experimental, analytical and numerical results in Energy Conversion Systems, in Energy Management, in Energy Recovery Systems, in Energy Saving Techniques, Energy Storage Systems and Renewable Systems, with a particular attention to the engineering, environmental and economic aspects.

The following list of topics is not intended to be exhaustive, but rather to indicate topics that fall within the aim of the

The paper will not be included in the conference proceedings if the authors have not registered at the Conference. Only the papers presented at the Conference will be reviewed and published on an International Journal, Scopus indexed.

Authors of 10 high quality papers will be invited to submit their paper in a completed form for peer review and publication in the International Journal of Heat and Technology.



3 Certificates of Merit will be assigned during the Conference, to be devoted to young graduates, PhD and post-PhD students and young researchers, who have carried out significant research work on the Conference issues and present their results with a paper, in oral or poster sessions: 1 for young graduates who present the results of their thesis, 1 for PhD and post-PhD students provided they are under 31 years old, 1 for the best paper presented by young researchers under 34 years old. Most important is that the author of the paper is alone.
