It is a multidisciplinarycongress, bridging efforts across the natural, social and engineering sciences,the environment and development of communities. The congress covers a widespectrum of topics that relate to sustainability, which includes technical andnon-technical research areas. It also encourages sharing new knowledge inthe field of sustainable technologies and the environmental impacts.The mission of WCST-2016 is to provide the opportunities forcollaboration and reflection that have the potential to greatly enhancethe infrastructure and capacity for conducting and applying art,science and technology for sustainability. The WCST bridgesthe gap between academia and industry by creating awareness ofcurrent development in sustainable technologies.The topics in WCST-2016 include but are not confined to thefollowing areas:Sustainable Energy Technologies:* Bio-energy and Geo-energy* Energy* Energy in Transportation Systems* Energy Efficiency in Utilization* Environmental Issues* Energy Harvesting* Energy Storage Systems* Energy Storage Systems* Energy Market, Management and Economics* Energy Resources for Portable Electronics* Energy Efficiency in Utilization* Geothermal energy* Intelligent Energy, Power Transmission Distribution, Interconnects and Protection* Materials for Energy Resources* Nanotechnology in Energy* New Enabling Technologies* New Materials for Energy Resources and RF and Magnetic Field Energy Devices* Off-grid Isolated Energy Systems* Policy Issues on Renewable Energy* Power Electronics and Energy Conversion* Renewable Energy and BiofuelsRenewable Energy Management, Economics and Environmental Impact:* Climate Change* Energy from waste* Environmental assessments* Environmental issues* Environmental policies and planning* Hazardous Chemical* Innovative use of Renewable Raw Materials* Offshore pollution and oil spills* Pollution prevention* Sustainable waste management technologies* Sustainability impact assessments and toolsEducation:* Environmental Education* Education and Training* E-Society (e-Learning, e-Health, e-Medicine, e-Governance, e-Business, e-Art, e-Science)Green Computing:* Advanced IT energy-aware technologies* Green Computing Geo-energy* E-Cycling* E-Inclusion* Electronic waste* Energy Efficient Ethernet* IT energy management* Power-aware software* Power-efficient architectures and chip designs* Component level power management, e.g., memory, disk.* Power aware networking Smart Grids applications* Technology as Green Enablers (Grid, Cloud, Data Centers, Virtualization)Sustainable Building Design:* Building Design and System* Creative Industries* Industrial Developments* Low and zero energy houses and buildings* New Insulation materials and techniques* New building materials and recycling* Photovoltaics and Solar ThermalSustainability and Policy:* Sustainable Applications* Sustainable Development Policy* Sustainable Innovations* Sustainable Technology ProgrammeWaste Management:* Agricultural wastes* Industrial waste management* Medical wastes* Mining and mineral wastes* Nuclear and hazardous waste* Waste from electronic and electrical equipment (WEEE)* Waste water treatment All the accepted papers will appear in the proceedings and modified version of selected papers will be published in special issues peer reviewed journals.
