The IEEE Computer Society’s Technical Committee on Sustainable Systems and Technology (formerly TC on Electronics and the Environment) is pleased to announce the 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Sustainable Systems and Technology. This conference was known between 1993 and 2008 as the IEEE International Symposium on Electronics and the Environment.
In 2008, the scope of the conference was broadened to all industries and products while still maintaining a focus on the sustainability of information and communication technology (ICT) services. The new scope further strengthens a premier event on sustainable technology issues.
The program includes sessions covering the spectrum of issues for assessing and managing products and services across their life cycle, and the design, management, and policy implications of sustainable systems and technologies, including design for environment, design for sustainability, materials selection, energy management, end-of-life policy and reuse/recycling, and institutional and policy implications of services and technology systems. Participants in the symposium are diverse, with representatives from industry, government and academia. All presented papers will have the option to be published in the Proceedings of the 2012 IEEE International Symposium on Sustainable Systems and Technology, published by IEEE.
