The Society’s next conference will be held at the University of Surrey - a campus University at the town of Guildford in the county of Surrey in the South East of England, about 50km (35 minutes by rail) from central London. Transport to Guildford is easy, via Heathrow or Gatwick airport, by Eurostar train to London or, for a more leisurely journey, by ferry from St. Malo or Cherbourg to Portsmouth with a direct train from the ferry terminal to Guildford (one hour).
The Conference will run from Tuesday (July 7) to Friday (July 10) with meetings before and following the main conference. The theme will be to “take stock” of what industrial ecology and the ISIE have achieved and to consider possible future pathways: plenary speakers and panels will give reviews – both retrospective and prospective – of different aspects of industrial ecology. The contributions will be published as a book, to set out the state-of-the-art in industrial ecology as an emergent area of study and practice.
