The Environment, Green Technology and Engineering International Conference (EGTEIC) was conceived to address the challenges our planet is facing today, to share and discuss proposals and research that can help us to build more resilient technologies, and to draw insights and encourage collaboration from many topics, disciplines, and backgrounds, to tackle these challenges.
Our aim is to share experiences and knowledge related to the use of natural resources, covering a wide range of critically important topics.
EGTEIC is an international forum where researchers, environmentalists, scientists, scholars and students, share their ideas, experiences, advancements, and research results about all aspects related to energy, environmental science, and green technologies. We also want to discuss the practical challenges encountered, and their possible solutions.
This conference will take place in the Polytechnic School of the University of Extremadura, in the world heritage city of Caceres (Extremadura, Spain), from the 18th to the 20th of June 2018.
All papers will be reviewed by experts in their (corresponding) fields, and will be included on the proceedings of the conference. Selected papers will be published on Special Issues of International Journals.
The post conference proceedings will be submitted to be indexed in Google Scholar, Scopus and Thomson Reuters. The conference abstracts and proceedings book, CD and certificates of presentation and attendance, will be distributed to the delegates at the conference registration desk.
We cordially invite you to share your knowledge and research in the topics of the conference, and join us to enjoy our beautiful region and our delicious gastronomy.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in Caceres!

Cáceres is a beautiful small city in the Extremadura region of Spain that is worth spending several days visiting. The Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Cáceres is a very compact city so it is unlikely that visitors will need to use public transport. All areas of the city are within 30 minutes walk of the centre.
The nearest major international airports to Cáceres are: Madrid Barajas, Seville and Lisbon. Each is around 250-300km from Cáceres.
Domestic flights from Madrid (Barajas) and Barcelona (El Prat) serve Cáceres' nearest airport, situated at Talavera in the province of Badajoz, around 90km from Cáceres. Talavera airport does not currently handle any international flights.
Airlines serving Madrid from the UK and Ireland: Aer Lingus , British Airways , Easyjet , flyBMI , Iberia , KLM , Lufthansa .
Airlines serving Madrid from the USA: American Airlines , Delta , Iberia , KLM , United .
Cáceres is served by several trains daily originating in Madrid Atocha, Lisbon and Badajoz. Details of all services are available via the RENFE  website. Unfortunately trains in this area are currently quite slow in comparison to road transport. However, the journey does hold some spectacular scenery if time is not an issue.
Cáceres Railway Station is on the outskirts of the city, around 1-2km from the city centre. Taxis are readily available, although it is an easy 10 minute stroll along the Avenida de Alemania to the city centre.
A high speed railway is currently under construction linking Madrid and Lisbon via Cáceres, Mérida and Badajoz. However, due to various incidents this project is suffering many delays and it is currently unknown when the line will be complete.
From Madrid: Follow the A-5 motorway towards Badajoz / Portugal, leaving at Trujillo onto the new A-58 autopista. This motorway will take you directly to the suburbs of Cáceres where you can follow signs for Centro Urbano to reach the city centre.
From Salamanca / the north: Take the A-66 southbound in direction Sevilla / Mérida. Leave the motorway at the north end of Cáceres (Ronda Norte) and enter the city using the N-630, which will bring you directly into the city centre.
From Seville / Mérida / the south: Take the A-66 northbound and at the junction with the EX-100. Follow the signs onto the N-630 to lead you directly into the city centre.
From Badajoz / Portugal: Leave the A-5 motorway and follow the regional EX-100 road to the outskirts of Cáceres. Follow the N-630 directly into the city.
From Madrid: Buses leave Madrid several times each day from the Estación del Sur. The journey takes between three and a half to four and a half hours, depending on the service / time of day. Services usually take a 20 minute break in the town of Navalmoral de la Mata. As of 18 July 2008, a single ticket costs 19,87€ (9,94€ for under 4s) and a return 36,15€ (17,89€ for under 4s) on normal services. On express services this rises to 23,75€ (11,90€) for singles and 43,40€ (21,40€) for returns.
From Seville / the south / Salamanca / the north: Buses from the Alsa company run this corridor, passing through Cáceres. Tickets (as at 18 July 2008) from Seville to Cáceres are 17,08€ single and 32,45€ return.
Cáceres Bus Station is on the outskirts of town, around 1-2km from the city centre. Taxis are readily available, although it is an easy stroll along the Avenida de Alemania to the city centre.
