6th International Conference on
Contemporary Problems of Thermal Engineering

The energy system beyond 2020 – challenges and opportunities

Poland, Kraków, 20-24 September 2020

Conference topics

CPOTE is a conference which brings together scientists involved in energy and exergy analysis. The scope of the conference is characterized by tracks divided into several areas of research and methodologies commonly used in research. During paper submission please select area of research and methodology which best match the content of your paper. This will help us to assign proper reviewers and arrange the conference's sessions. We aim to cluster similar topics into thematic blocks and identify each conference session with a proper name. We hope that the proposed Tracks will allow to match your fields of interest with the conference's sessions. If you have any suggestions regarding the proposed Tracks, please send us an e-mail.

The conference topics include the following tracks, for which you can assign your abstracts. Each abstract should be assigned both to areas of research and methodology so that the thematic sessions at the conference can be based on one of these tracks.

Tracks of the conference
