Welcome to ISSST

The International Symposium on Sustainable Systems and Technology (ISSST) covers the spectrum of issues for assessing and managing products and services across their life cycle, and the design, management, and policy implications of sustainable engineered systems and technologies.

Authors are invited to submit papers describing research, applications, tools, and case studies addressing the topics below. Proceedings will be distributed exclusively to the conference participants and authors may retain copyrights to the submitted papers, or elect to submit their papers for consideration in sustainability-related journals.

Students are especially encouraged to attend and can participate in special paper and poster competitions, judged by leading academics and researchers from government and industry.
