Dear Colleagues!

On behalf of the conference’s organizing committee we would like to thank you for all your submissions and declare the call for papers closed. All in all we received 10 panel and altogether 100 paper proposals.

The submissions cover a broad range of geographical areas and delve into various aspects and sectors of existing energy value chains. From a disciplinary perspective, most of the social sciences as well as related fields in the humanities are represented in the panels and paper proposals. Meanwhile the authors themselves are a diverse group, hailing from the far ends of the international academic community. We are very excited as well as honoured to be organizing such a multi-disciplinary and multi-national event here at Helsinki University.

During the following weeks, both representatives of the organizing committee and the advisory board will be going through the submissions, evaluating the panels and papers and creating the preliminary conference programme. We hope to have confirmations for papers and panels out by e-mail by the 30th of June.
