Selection criteria
The Behavior, Energy and Climate Change (BECC) Conference brings together a range of academics, practitioners, and policy-makers from a variety of fields engaged in energy and climate efforts to provide the latest and most relevant behavioral research, best practices, and methodologies.

The BECC 2013 Organizing Committee is seeking abstract submissions from a wide variety of disciplines and sectors, including, but not limited to:


  • applied anthropology
  • social psychology
  • behavioral economics
  • organizational behavior
  • political science
  • communications
  • cognitive sciences.

Sectors / Issue Areas:

  • buildings (residential and commercial)
  • technology design and usage
  • transportation
  • urban design
  • sustainable consumption (e.g., food, water, and waste).

Abstracts should be no more than 500 words in length and offer new research findings and/or documented examples of behavior change pilots, programs, or trials.

Abstracts should not be a discussion topic, a marketing presentation, or a review or summary of already established work.

NEW! Accepting Abstracts for Papers
New this year is the option to submit an abstract for a full paper written for presentation at BECC. The conference will highlight sessions whose participants have submitted full drafts for review by their discussant. There will be a (non-peer-reviewed) publishing option available for those who wish to make their paper available on our website in lieu of journal submission.

Submissions will be judged on:

  • Relevance to conference themes
  • Clarity of thought
  • Data / documented results
  • Creativity
  • Fit in conference program
  • Other criteria

Please Note: We keep our registration fee quite affordable to encourage robust attendance. However to achieve this goal all presenters are expected to register for the conference and to pay conference registration fees.
