Call for Abstracts and Posters

We warmly invite all interested scientists at an advanced stage of their PhD to submit their work.


The focus of this colloquium is on the entire bioenergy conversion chain - starting with biomass as a raw material, through the various conversion paths and processes, including their technological implementation, to the resulting products and services as well as the system analyses and measures required for system integration. We like to ask the interested parties to participate only with research that is part of their thesis; and not with projects, they are additionally involved in.

Theme fields (inter alia)

  • Sustainable resource base
  • Bioenergy system analysis (incl. technical integration)
  • Thermochemical conversion
  • Biochemical conversion
  • Biorefineries / Biofuels

Language of the event

The event language is English. In addition to the poster exhibition, all accepted posters shall be presented during a poster speed presentation.

Submit presentation 

We look forward to receiving an abstract of your research work for either an oral presentation or a poster until 31th May 2020 via e-mail at
The programme committee will evaluate all submitted abstracts and decide on their acceptance. Selected contributions will be recommended for publication in a scientific journal of excellent reputation (for example Energy, Sustainability and Society / Springer Open; Chemical Engineering & Technology / Wiley Online Library; Biomass & Bioenergy / Elsevier; Waste Management / Elsevier; Waste Management & Research" / SAGE Publishers; DETRITUS - Multidisciplinary journal for Waste Resources and Residues /  CISA PUBLISHER an imprint of EUROWASTE Srl.) The best poster will be awarded during the closing session of the colloquium.

We are looking forward to your submissions by 31 May 2020 and to welcoming you at the 3rd Doctoral Colloquium BIOENERGY!
