- Advanced control strategies ensuring increased power extraction and/or improvement in the power quality.
- Grid code compliance.
- Reliability, diagnostic and aging in offshore renewable energy conversion.
- Design and sizing of system or components.
- Farm layouts and AC or DC transmission schemes for offshore renewable energy farms.
- Energy storage solutions for offshore energy applications.
- Modeling to represent marine resources.
- Real case studies and contributions on the state of advancement of on-going projects.
- Life cycle analysis (economical and/or environmental).
- Social acceptance and maritime governance
Submission: Prospective authors are kindly invited to submit a comprehensive extended abstract of two to three A4 pages, written in English, one-column format, including author name(s), mailing address, and e-mail address.
