Industrial Ecology Day: Call for abstracts

Dear ISIE community,

The program of the International Industrial Ecology Day 2021 - Global Science for Global Sustainability - is online and the call for abstracts is now open! Be sure to check out the home page of the event, where you can find the program and all abstract submission options. 

The IE Day features a series of consecutive 2-hour online sessions hosted on all continents. There will be more than 25 sessions running from the morning in Australia, China, or Japan to the afternoon in Colombia, Peru, or the US west coast. Participants can join all sessions that conveniently fit to their local time. Sessions will feature various formats, including keynote talks, poster and oral presentations in topical sessions, panel discussions, and networking events.

The 23 topical sessions form the core of the event. Topics range from the renewable energy transition in emerging economies, to the future of artificial intelligence research in our field, to the relation between industrial ecology and green investing.

While for some sessions the organizers will invite speakers and contributors, there are 17 sessions for which a call for abstract is now open to all ISIE members (non-members can participate by purchasing a membership). Abstract submission is handled via the extended functionality of the ISIE website. The list of sessions with abstract submission is available under the link above. The format of the presentations differs across sessions.

If you are interested in submitting an abstract for an ORAL or POSTER presentation during the IE Day, please select a session (check timing and presentation format!) and enter an abstract of 300 words max. (200 words for poster abstracts).

The deadline for abstract submission is May 8! 

The submitted abstracts will then be reviewed by the session organizers, who will assemble a program at latest by the end of May. Submissions that do not fit into the sessions with oral presentations but are deemed of sufficient quality will be offered a spot in one of the poster sessions. 

We look forward to this exciting event! 

Best regards,

The IE Day conference organizers
