The rising concern about a potential global energy crisis and its impact on the economy and environment calls for a transition from the current development paradigms to a sustainable one. Such transition poses a significant challenge for scientists, industries and governments requiring innovative policies to save energy and reduce environmental and social impacts considerably. The energy, ecology and environment (E3) issues, which are highly interwoven in the networks of human and natural systems, have been mostly disassembled into three separate aspects from a reductionist way of thinking, despite the trans-disciplinarily inherent in fundamental and applied research. Efforts in one discipline without considering wider links and consequences often prove to be invalid when promoting sustainability.
The ICEEE-CEADs 2020 on Energy-Ecology-Environment Nexus will be held during 6th to 8th October 2020, in Cambridge, UK. The symposium will include keynotes, invited speeches and poster sessions. Participants of the ICEEE-CEADs 2020 are kindly invited to submit a title and abstract. All papers will be reviewed, and the accepted ones will be presented at the workshop orally or by poster. Selected papers from the ICEEE-CEADs 2020 will be recommended by the scientific committee for the further consideration of publication in prestigious journals including Applied Energy, and other renowned international journals.
The symposium aims to enhance academic exchange concerning the cutting-edge problems in Energy-Ecology-Environment nexus, focusing on approaches that integrate considerations of energy, ecology and environment and uses this cross-disciplinary integration to be an important counterbalance towards the very dominating economic approach.
In the past years the International Conference on Energy, Ecology and Environment (ICEEE) has become a leading international forum for key stakeholders of the energy, ecology and environment sectors. The forum brings together experts in three disciplines to discuss the latest technological advancement and share their experiences and ideas on a safe, affordable, ecologically and environmentally responsible global energy transition.
