GIK-SDSU International Conference on Next Generation Energy Technologies April 01-03, 2016

The ever-increasing energy demand and growing concern about climate change has ignited a massive effort to develop new energy technologies which are  environmental friendly and affordable. Unlimited forms of clean and renewable energy sources, such as solar energy, are abundantly available. Cost effective energy generation, conversion, harvesting and storage can endlessly fuel our civilization. The aim of this conference is to bring together scientists, engineers, and technologists to share, discuss and review the state-of-the-art in research and application of novel concepts to next generation energy technologies, industrial opportunities, energy generation/conversion/harvesting storage devices/systems, materials, their characterization and modeling & simulation.
We will be happy to invite as keynote speakers the leading scientists, researchers, engineers, and technologists that are working in the energy related technologies. The last date for the submission of abstract for the oral and poster presentations is March 20, 2016. From outside Pakistan, papers may also be presented on Skype.
Registration fee is Pak Rs. 2,000/- per participant for students and Pak Rs. 3,000/- per participant for professionals. The interested participants are requested to fill the participation form. The link is:

The Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology (GIK) is one of the most prestigious engineering institutes of Pakistan. It is not only known for setting a standard of excellence in the field of engineering but also, for its versatility and extracurricular activities.  Away from the congestion, noise and pollution of big cities, the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute is located in the midst of the nature-rich countryside of Pakistan. Lying at the foot of the beautiful lake of Tarbela Dam, the largest earth-filled dam of the world, it is set against the picturesque backdrop of rolling hills, vast grassy fields and a clear blue sky with the mighty Indus meandering across a lush green belt.
