Notification and Call for Participation

¬*

The World Congress
on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2011) is a multidisciplinary
congress, Technical Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI Computer Chapter.
The WCST bridges across the natural, social and engineering
sciences, the environment and development of communities. The
congress covers a wide spectrum of topics that relate to
sustainability, which includes technical and non-technical
research areas. It also encourages sharing new knowledge in the
field of sustainable technologies and the environmental impacts.

¬*

The mission of
WCST-2011 is to provide the opportunities for collaboration and
reflection that have the potential to greatly enhance the
infrastructure and capacity for conducting and applying art,
science and technology for sustainability. The WCST bridges the
gap between academia and industry by creating awareness of
current development in sustainable technologies.

Keynote Speakers

Professor Robert
M. Kalin academic and professional interests are focused on
Environment Science and Engineering to underpin the global
sustainability agendas. His work ranges from hydrogeology and
palaeohydrology of local to regional scale groundwater systems,
and study of global biogeochemical cycles and climate change, to
site specific biogeochemistry of water treatment, contaminated
land and groundwater (including engineering design of
sustainable remediation methods), development of new enhanced
chemical and physical treatments of oil and water that manage
sustainable risk.

Professor Kalin, as Director of the David
Livingstone Centre for Sustainability, is working to underpin
Sustainable Environmental Development including the move to a
carbon neutral society. This is a core concept that most of the
World aims to address in the Decade 2005 to 2015. Professor
Kalin through his scholarship clearly acknowledges the
Millennium Goals and aims to make a significant impact to help
humanity achieve sustainability through four complementary
topics:

¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬* ¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬* i.¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬* Carbon and Water
Footprint Management

for a Carbon Neutral Society

¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬* ¬*¬* iv.¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬*¬* Environmental
Forensics and rebuilding of Environmental Capital

His work on sustainable environmental development
is driven by an engagement with interdisciplinary focused
problem and knowledge transfer, drawing in particular on the
insights of environmental science and engineering and extending
research endeavours found in other disciplines (e.g.
environmental planning, environmental governance, paleo-ecology,
environmental economics, environmental law, agriculture and land
use change).

Nik Bessis is Head of DISYS
(Distributed and Systems) research group and a full Professor of
Computer Science (Chair) at the School of Computer Science and
Mathematics, University of Derby, UK. He is also associated with
the Department of computer Science and Technology, University of
Bedfordshire, UK. He obtained a BA (1991) from the TEI of Athens
and completed his MA (1995) and PhD (2002) at de Montfort
University (Leicester, UK ). His research interest reside within
the next generation data technologies and include data
integration, data push, resource discovery and scheduling, data
grids, clouds, web 2.0, social networking, crowd sourcing and
collective intelligence. Professor Bessis has also an interest
in disaster management. He has involved in (xx2m) and led
(xx0.6m) a number of funded research and conferences, served as
a Conference Chair, Editor of 3 books, editor of several issues
and the editor-in-Chief of the International journal of
distributed Systems and Technologies (IJDST).

Ian Williams is Professor of
Applied Environmental science at the University of Southampton.
He has published two books and over 90 peer-reviewed papers on
waste and environmental issues, as well as over 90 commercial
projects. He has held position on the scientific and organizing
committees of several international conferences and has
extensive experience of managing Research Council, EU, ESF, ERDF
and Landfill Tax projects, as well as research and commercial
projects, and is a Trustee of the charity KBT-Waste. His work at
Southampton has focused on waste issues. Current and recent
waste-related projects include: Zerowaste in industrial
networks; Carbon footprinting of cities and waste industry;
transport and logistics of WEEE collection and disposal; Bulky
waste and furniture recycling/reuse; The development of waste
strategies for medium-sized enterprises; The Environmental
impacts (especially emissions to air and water) of organic
wastes; and Recycling behaviours in medium- and high-density
housing.

Ian regularly reviews academic papers for a range
of journals and is on the Editorial Board of Waste Management.
He has received three recent awards for his research activities:
the Institution of Civil Engineers Baker Medal in 2010 and two
