Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee and the ISIE board, it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 11th International Conference on Industrial Ecology (ISIE2023) of the International Society for Industrial Ecology, to be held from July 2 to 5, 2023. Following a lengthy delay caused by Covid19, we’re excited that the conference makes its way back to Leiden, the Netherlands, where the first ISIE conference was held in 2001.

ISIE2023 welcomes the submission of abstracts to present at the conference. ISIE 2023 will include parallel sessions for oral presentations, including special sessions organized by participants, as well as poster sessions. 

We’re pleased to announce an extension to the deadline for abstract submission. The new deadline is the 8th of February, 2023.

The deadline for special session proposals remains the same as before, the 25th of January 2023.

Please visit the call for abstracts page to submit your abstracts and special session proposals through the ExOrdo system, where you will also find detailed instructions and list of topics.

The conference theme is Transitions in a world in turmoil. The way we use energy and resources in our present system is not sustainable. Major changes are necessary in our energy system to make it climate-neutral. At the same time our use of land, water and material resources needs to change dramatically to become sustainable. To avoid further deterioration of nature and our environment and resource supply constraints we must move toward a circular economy, while at the same time ensuring equitable transitions. The Covid19 crisis and the Russian aggression in Ukraine have changed the geopolitical context in which these transitions will have to take place. This offers both challenges and opportunities.  

Note that other conferences are using similar names and websites, such as the International Industrial Ecology Conference 2023, which are potentially confusing. They are not in any way connected to the ISIE. Please be cautious when you receive any invitation and be on the lookout for predatory signs, such as retainment of intellectual property rights and lack of information about institutional endorsement, etc. If you have any doubt about whether a conference is connected to the ISIE, please check with the Leiden conference organizing committee and the ISIE Executive Team.

Submit your abstracts and special session proposals here. We’re looking forward to seeing you in Leiden in July!
