Call For Papers

The intent of the SusTech conference is to explore the comprehensive nature of sustainability and to emphasize the role of technology in achieving a sustainable life style for humanity. The topic listings below are meant to indicate the breadth of the area and are definitely not to be considered exhaustive.

Agriculture (e.g., control and production of fertilizers, soil, water conservation, irrigation, fisheries )
Alternative Energy (e.g. solar, wind, tidal, fuel cells, energy harvesting, nuclear, thermal)
Energy Efficiency (e.g. sensors and measurement, energy saving controls, auto electronics & fuel economy, data centers, power saving, Smart Environment)
Transportation Electrification (e.g. electric vehicles, aviation, motors, drive controls, batteries, sensors, environmental & power distribution impacts)
Smart Grid (e.g. communications, control, power electronics, industrial and home applications, energy storage, demand control and response)
Sustainable Electronics (e.g. sustainable manufacturing, components, global materials supply, hardware life-cycle, nanotechnology & health/environment, reuse and repair of consumer electronics, materials harvesting from electronic waste, Open repair manuals and on-line repair and electronics sustainability resources, best practices)
Societal Implications / Quality of Life (e.g. EM spectrum allocation, global warming, autonomous vehicles, health & medical electronics, global education & human resources, risk management, remediation, purification, public policy)

Tutorials, Workshops and Papers are solicited for both oral and poster presentation from industry, government and academia (including students) covering relevant research, technologies, methodologies, tools and case studies.

In addition, we are seeking proposals for tutorials and workshops on Certifications & Standards (e.g. verification, standards, regulations, compliance).

There will be an undergraduate student poster contest with cash prizes. Low cost student housing will be available. Undergraduate poster submissions do require a PDF abstract in IEEE format. See full details at The undergraduate poster abstracts in IEEE format instead can be submitted online or to A full paper is not required to accompany the poster.

SusTech will feature contributed papers and distinguished invited speakers in each track. Full papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Conference content that meet IEEE quality review standards will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Topics with policy implications are welcome, in both technologies for sustainability and sustainable technologies.

To submit your 2-page abstract, please visit the conference website: select Conference tab and follow the instructions there.
