Call for Abstracts
Oral and Poster Abstracts are being accepted through April 30 to these and other key topics in sustainability:
Food, Energy, Water, and the FEW Nexus:
Food, energy, water, and their intersections offer fertile ground for breakthrough advances toward sustainability, while simultaneously older technologies and focus areas (fracking, water systems, etc.) reemerge to prominence.
Sustainable manufacturing, circular economy, environmental product declarations, and life cycle assessment highlight the broad area of industrial innovation, where product, process, and system areas are the focus of efforts on the economic, environmental, and social aspects of sustainability.
A multi-disciplinary systems approach is essential for development of a sustainable biofuels and bioenergy sector. This track within ICOSSE '18 will explore innovative solutions to socioeconomic and environmental challenges and opportunities for commercialization of emerging advanced biofuels and bioenergy.
Modeling and Simulation:
Evaluating the sustainability of new or existing systems, processes, or products involves modeling methods and simulation tools that vary widely in levels of scale and detail. Examples in this area include high-level ecosystem health and community resilience down to process life cycle assessments and even individual product design.
