The Gulf Organisation for Research and Development (GORD) will be holding the annual Sustainability Summit 2019 at The Ritz-Carlton, Doha on 15 and 16 October.

Curated into three sustainability streams of Research, Built Environment and Energy Industry, the two-day event will start with an extensive scope, later narrowed down to the specifics of parallel themes.

Following the success of previous conferences, the organisers are inviting scholars, researchers and educators to submit extended abstracts from a range of theoretical and methodological perspectives. Selected papers will be presented at the summit, and reviewed for publication by prestigious journals including the International Journal of Renewable Energy (Elsevier, impact factor 5.439).

All extended abstracts must be submitted to the secretariat via the website before 31 August. The length of the extended abstract should not exceed four pages.

For template and more information on writing and referencing style, please see Submission Guidelines.
