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

The 5th Annual IEEE Conference on Technologies for Sustainability (SusTech 2017) is designed to explore the development and application of science, engineering and technology in achieving a sustainable lifestyle for humanity. It brings together scientists, engineers, technologists and scholars from multiple disciplines to hold a dialogue on environmental issues and collaborate on ideas to develop and utilize innovative tools and intelligent systems to address them. Attendees will learn about the tools, connections and proactive solutions to take their sustainability programs to the next level.

SusTech 2017 will feature technical papers, posters and workshops. A number of prominent experts will be giving keynotes addresses, plenary presentations and invited talks. Best Student Posters submitted for the conference will be eligible for an award. Full papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings.

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

Abstracts are solicited for both oral and (student) poster presentations from industry, government and academia (including students) covering relevant research, technologies, methodologies, tools and case studies. Topics with policy implications are also welcome. Poster presentations this year will be limited to students.

Topics of Interest

Focus AreaTopics 
Renewable/Alternative Energy(e.g. solar, wind, tidal, fuel cells, energy harvesting, nuclear, thermal, power distribution)
