Memo  World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2017) Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI Computer Chapter 11-14 December, 2017 University of Cambridge, UK London, UK www.wcst.org ******************************************************************** The World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2017) is Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI Computer Chapter. It is a multidisciplinary congress, bridging efforts across the natural, social and engineering sciences, the environment and development of communities. The congress covers a wide spectrum of topics that relate to sustainability, which includes technical and non-technical research areas. It also encourages sharing new knowledge in the field of sustainable technologies and the environmental impacts. The mission of WCST-2017 is to provide the opportunities for collaboration and reflection that have the potential to greatly enhance the infrastructure and capacity for conducting and applying art, science and technology for sustainability. The WCST bridges the gap between academia and industry by creating awareness of current development in sustainable technologies. The topics in WCST-2017 include but are not confined to the following areas: Sustainable Energy Technologies: * Bio-energy and Geo-energy * Energy * Energy in Transportation Systems * Energy Efficiency in Utilization * Environmental Issues * Energy Harvesting * Energy Storage Systems * Energy Storage Systems * Energy Market, Management and Economics * Energy Resources for Portable Electronics * Energy Efficiency in Utilization * Geothermal energy * Intelligent Energy, Power Transmission Distribution, Interconnects and Protection * Materials for Energy Resources * Nanotechnology in Energy * New Enabling Technologies * New Materials for Energy Resources and RF and Magnetic Field Energy Devices * Off-grid Isolated Energy Systems * Policy Issues on Renewable Energy * Power Electronics and Energy Conversion * Renewable Energy and Biofuels Renewable Energy Management, Economics and Environmental Impact: * Climate Change * Energy from waste * Environmental assessments * Environmental issues * Environmental policies and planning * Hazardous Chemical * Innovative use of Renewable Raw Materials * Offshore pollution and oil spills * Pollution prevention * Sustainable waste management technologies * Sustainability impact assessments and tools Education: * Environmental Education * Education and Training * E-Society (e-Learning, e-Health, e-Medicine, e-Governance, e-Business, e-Art, e-Science) Green Computing: * Advanced IT energy-aware technologies * Green Computing Geo-energy * E-Cycling * E-Inclusion * Electronic waste * Energy Efficient Ethernet * IT energy management * Power-aware software * Power-efficient architectures and chip designs * Component level power management, e.g., memory, disk. * Power aware networking * Smart Grids applications * Technology as Green Enablers (Grid, Cloud, Data Centers, Virtualization) Sustainable Building Design: * Building Design and System * Creative Industries * Industrial Developments * Low and zero energy houses and buildings * New Insulation materials and techniques * New building materials and recycling * Photovoltaics and Solar Thermal Sustainability and Policy: * Sustainable Applications * Sustainable Development Policy * Sustainable Innovations * Sustainable Technology Programme Waste Management: * Agricultural wastes * Industrial waste management * Medical wastes * Mining and mineral wastes * Nuclear and hazardous waste * Waste from electronic and electrical equipment (WEEE) * Waste water treatment All the accepted papers will appear in the proceedings and modified version of selected papers will be published in special issues peer reviewed journals. **Paper/Extended Abstract Submission: - To submit a paper/extended abstract, please email your paper/extended paper to papers@wcst.org or submit it online at http://www.wcst.org/paper-submission/ **Workshop/Tutorial Submission: - Please email your Workshop/Tutorial proposal to stw@wcst.org **Poster/Demo Submission: - Please email your poster to poster@wcst.org and demo@wcst.org Submission Dates: *Extended Abstract (Work in Progress) Submission Date: May 1, 2017 *Notification of Extended Abstract Acceptance/Rejection: May 15, 2017 *Full Paper Submission Date: May 25, 2017 *Notification of Paper Acceptance/Rejection: June 15, 2017 *Camera Ready Paper Due: September 15, 2017 *Workshops and Tutorials Submission Date: May 15, 2017 *Notification of Workshop and Tutorial Acceptance: June 01, 2017 *Special Track Submission Date: May 15, 2017 *Notification of Special Track Acceptance: June 01, 2017 *Poster/Demo Submission Date: May 25, 2017 *Notification of Poster/Demo Acceptance: June 15, 2017 *Proposal for Industrial Presentation: May 25, 2017 *Notification of Industrial Presentation Acceptance: June 15, 2017 *Early Registration Deadline: August 15, 2017 *Late Registration Deadline (Authors only): October 15, 2017 *Late Registration Deadline (Participants only): November 01, 2017 *Conference Dates: December 11 - 14, 2017 For further details, please visit www.wcst.org
