Portland, OR — April 19-22, 2023
Sustainability: the pursuit of environmentally sound development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the future!
The 10th Annual IEEE Conference on Technologies for Sustainability (SusTech 2023) 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.
For the 10th Anniversary we will also look into policy and economic influences on the diffusion over the past decade of sustainable technologies into general practice (e.g. design and implementation).
SusTech 2023 is an in-person event and will feature technical papers & presentations, posters and workshops.
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.
