Theme: transitions in a world in turmoil

ISIE2023, to be held in Leiden 2-5 July 2023, is the 11th biennial conference of the International Society for Industrial Ecology (ISIE)

The theme of the conference is Transitions in a world in turmoil: The way we use energy and resources in our present system is not sustainable. Major changes are necessary in our energy system to make it climate-neutral. At the same time our use of land, water and material resources needs to change dramatically to become sustainable. 

To avoid further deterioration of nature and our environment and resource supply constraints we must move toward a circular economy, while at the same time ensuring equitable transitions. The Covid19 crisis and the Russian aggression in Ukraine have changed the geopolitical context in which these transitions will have to take place. This offers both challenges and opportunities.  

During the Leiden ISIE2023 conference, we will discuss the challenges the world is facing, the changes that are necessary to remain within planetary boundaries, and the solutions that could be employed in a technical, behavioral and organizational sense to meet these challenges.

ISIE2023 welcomes the submission of abstracts to present at the conference. Please visit the call for abstracts page to submit your abstracts and special session proposals.

Note that other conferences are using similar names and websites, which are potentially confusing. They are not in any way connected to the ISIE. Please be cautious when you receive any invitation and be on the lookout for predatory signs, such as retainment of intellectual property rights and lack of information about institutional endorsement, etc. If you have any doubt about whether a conference is connected to the ISIE, feel free to check the conference website, the ISIE website, the Leiden conference organizing committee, and with the ISIE Executive Team.
