Contributed papers and invited papers are being solicited in the following seven areas:

  • Agriculture(e.g., control and production of fertilizers, soil, water conservation, irrigation, fisheries )
  • Alternative Energy (e.g. solar, wind, tidal, fuel cells, energy harvesting, nuclear)
  • Energy Efficiency (e.g. sensors and measurement, energy saving controls, auto electronics & fuel economy, data centers, power saving, Smart Environment)
  • Transportation Electrification (e.g. electric vehicles, aviation, motors, drive controls, batteries, sensors, environmental & power distribution impacts)
  • Smart Grid (e.g. communications, control, power electronics, industrial and home applications, energy storage, demand control and response)
  • Sustainable Electronics (e.g. sustainable manufacturing, components, global materials supply, hardware life-cycle, nanotechnology & health/environment, reuse and repair of consumer electronics, materials harvesting from electronic waste, Open repair manuals and on-line repair and electronics sustainability resources, best practices)
  • Societal Implications / Quality of Life (e.g. EM spectrum allocation, global warming, autonomous vehicles, health & medical electronics, global education & human resources, risk management, remediation, purification, public policy)

Tutorials, Workshops and Papers are solicited for both oral and poster presentation from industry, government and academia (including students) covering relevant research, technologies, methodologies, tools and case studies. Posters sessions this year will be limited to undergraduate students.

In addition, we are seeking proposals for tutorials and workshops on Certifications & Standards (e.g. verification, standards, regulations, compliance).

SusTech will feature contributed papers and distinguished invited speakers in each track. Full papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Conference content that meet IEEE quality review standards will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Topics with policy implications are welcome, in both technologies for sustainability and sustainable technologies.

New for 2015 is an undergraduate Student Poster Contest with cash prizes. Students must submit a 2-page abstract of the poster in IEEE format. Abstracts in PDF should be submitted via the website or to A full paper is not required to accompany the poster. Rules for the Poster Contest and full details including template can be found here.
