2023 Behavior, Energy, and Climate Change (BECC) Conference: Call for Abstracts Extended to April 17

Abstract submissions for the 2023 Behavior, Energy, and Climate Change (BECC) Conference have been extended to April 17! The focus of this year’s event is on driving transformation—toward new ideas, new policies, and new methods of changing behavior to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.

Abstract submission guidelines are as follows:

  • Deadline (extended): April 17, 2023
  • Length: Up to 300 words
  • Format options: Individual, 7-12 minute presentation; poster, 1-1.5 hour symposium, or panel discussion; and other
  • Review: Abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of experts. Authors will be notified of acceptance in June 2023. Priority will be given to new work with original findings and work related to the conference theme. BECC strives to increase diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice in our conference content, attendees, and speakers.

BECC is the premier conference focused on understanding human behavior and decision-making to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon future. Since 2007, BECC has fostered an understanding of individual and organizational behavior and decision-making related to energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions, climate change, and sustainability.

BECC participants and presenters represent a variety of backgrounds and communities: research, academia, business, utilities, government, and the nonprofit sector. Whatever your background, BECC is excited to invite you to join the conversation and present your original work.

And don’t forget to mark your calendars—BECC 2023 will be an in-person conference in Sacramento, CA from November 13-15, 2023, and will continue to offer free monthly webinars leading up to the event.
