The 5th International Congress of Energy and Environment Engineering and Management (CIIEM), organized by researchers belonging to the Areas of Engineering of the C3i/Polytechnic Institute of Portalegre (Portugal) and the Extremadura University (Spain), has the main target of joining academics, researchers, engineers, consultants and companies from the Energy and Environment Sectors, in order to interchange experiences, present advances and new projects about the rational and efficient use of Energy and the Energetic Conversion Systems, and also to analyze the different solutions focused on the reduction of the impact caused by energetic systems on the environment and the environment preservation, concerning other activity sectors and society. This Congress attempts to contribute to reaching a sustainable development in our countries.

In order to reach this purpose, in CIIEM will take place not only all the research topics and development works concerning Energy and Environmental Engineering and Management, but also those belonging to areas closely related to these two disciplines.

According to this philosophy, the Congress has been structured into seven different scientific areas, in which all the communications will be distributed depending on the following items:

• Energetic Installations.

• Renewable Energies.

• Environmental Management. Environmental Engineering.

• Environmental Education.

• Materials.

• Projects Engineering.

•  Computer Fluid Dynamics.

Authors can chose to present their work as Oral or Poster presentation. Authors should submite an one page Abstract of the work. After Abstract acceptance an extended abstract should be submitted (four pages). All Abstracts will be published in the Conference Abstracts E-Book. The best works  will have the possibility of being published in International Journals (subject to standard revision process).

Finally, on behalf of the Organizing Committee, I would like to invite all the Scientific Community to participate in this project, presenting papers or communications related to any of the proposed areas.

Looking forward to welcome you there!
