Call for Abstracts: DEADLINE APRIL 23, 2018
We are seeking new, innovative research and applied work from leaders in behavioral sciences as applied to the adoption of sustainable energy production and use in all energy-using sectors of the economy. Please note that work that has been discussed in other public forums or presented at BECC in the past will not be accepted.


We invite abstracts of 300-400 words for formal 15-minute presentations, with or without accompanying full papers, as well as 5-7 minute "lightning talks," panel discussions, and poster presentations. Abstracts may be submitted as part of a panel application (a group of presentations) or independently. Any abstract submitted as part of a panel will also be considered independently if the complete panel is not accepted.

To help moderators prepare their sessions, we request that presenters who deliver full-length or lightning talks also prepare a brief summary of their work (maximum of two pages) or a final set of slides one month prior to the conference.

Based on the 2017 conference attendee evaluation (50% response rate), we are especially interested in papers and presentations on the following topics:
·     Decision making and behavioral economics
·     Building coalitions
·     Federal, state, and local policy
·     Cultural change and social movements
·     Reaching underserved populations
·     Climate change resilience and adaptation
·     Electrification to replace carbon fuels
·     The arts and media

We welcome work that applies to the following areas:
1. Social sciences
2. Commercial and industrial programs
3. Communication and marketing
4. Technology and innovation
5. Social norms and culture change
6. Evaluation
7. Residential programs
8. Government policy
9. Renewable resources 
10. Transportation
11. Program design
12. Models and metrics 

Are you submitting a panel (where presentations complement each other) or a point-of-view panel designed to encourage healthy debate? If so, please leave this site and go to Panels.  This site is for stand-alone presentations.
