Call For Papers

Socioeconomic metabolism research has been developing intensively in the last decades.
Methods and tools of different temporal and spatial analyses were successfully
established and applied by a broadening scientific community. Recently, one of the paths
providing a deeper understanding of sustainability problems and resource requirement
in particular, is the joint analysis of material stocks and flows. Results have revealed an
extremely high physical amount of stocks in societal systems relative to flows; thus
material stocks may intensely influence or even determine the resource use. From this
perspective, the workshop focuses on (but is not restricted to) the following subjects:
• Accounting for material flows and stocks of the socioeconomic metabolism
• Role of stocks in the socioeconomic metabolism
• Stocks and flows of food supply chain
• Urban metabolism
The workshop will provide three half-day sections in these fields. We invite you to attend
the workshop and to submit proposals for paper. All submitted papers will be reviewed
and selected on the basis of relevance to the theme of the event. You may submit your
abstract (up to 400 words) via e-mail to the contact person. Please use a pdf format.
