    World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2017)

    University of Cambridge, UK

    World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2017)
    Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI Computer Chapter
    11-14 December, 2017
    University of Cambridge, UK

    The World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2017) is Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI Computer Chapter. It is a multidisciplinary congress, bridging efforts 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-2017 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.
