We are now accepting proposals for the “International Conference on Water, Informatics, Sustainability and Environment: iWISE 2017” which will be held on July 03 – 05, 2017 at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada.
Date: July 3-5, 2017
Submission Deadline: May 30, 2017
Early Bird Registration: USD $550 ends January 30, 2017
Publication: International Journal of Environment & Sustainability – International Journal of Sustainable Land Use and Urban Planning
iWISE2017 will be held under the slogan ”Challenges for Sustainable Future” with climate change at the center of the challenges to the sustainability of the human life and the ecosystem. The conference will discuss solutions for the challenges we face building up a climate change resilience in different tracks such as water, environment, biodiversity and energy with the help of decision support tools.
iWISE2017 will be complemented through focused themed sessions allowing for a lively exchange of ideas as well as contributions from highly selective keynote speakers from well-known leaders in the field. Researchers and participants will be coming from different sorts of backgrounds; academic, research centers, NGOs, and government organizations.
