Portland, OR — April 14-17, 2024


Sustainability: the pursuit of environmentally sound development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the future!

The 11th Annual IEEE Conference on Technologies for Sustainability (SusTech 2024) is designed to explore technical development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the future generations. The conference brings together scientists, engineers, technologists and scholars from disparate disciplines to conduct a dialogue on environmental issues and collaborate on ideas to develop and utilize innovative tools and intelligent systems to address them. Attendees will explore emerging relevant technologies, latest tools, and proactive solutions to take their sustainability programs to the next level.

SusTech 2024 is an in-person event and will feature technical papers & presentations, posters and workshops.

  • Prominent experts will be giving keynotes, plenary presentations and invited talks.
  • Best Posters and Papers in the conference will be eligible for an award.
  • Full papers will be considered for publication in the IEEE SusTech 2024 Proceedings.

Conference content that meets IEEE quality review standards and format will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting & Indexing (A&I) databases.

Papers are solicited for presentations from industry, government, and academia (including students) covering relevant research, technologies, methodologies, tools, case studies and public policy.
