Call for Papers for The 2nd World Sustainability Forum



Research concerned with sustainability and sustainable development is progressing fast. Simultaneously, activities within industry, government and academia are becoming more globalized. Successful research requires interaction with multiple partners around the world. We are facing an obvious need for new types of communication within our scientific community. Sciforum.net electronic conferences provide a platform for fast exchange of the latest research findings, as well as a possibility for global meetings with no limitations related to traveling.

The World Sustainability Forum 2012 (WSF-2012) will cover timely research topics concerned with sustainability and sustainable development. The conference will include nine topical sessions focusing on:

1. Environmental Sustainability (Section A).

2. Corporate Sustainability Strategy (Section B).

3. Social Values for a Sustainable Economy (Section C).

4. Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Sources (Section D).

5. Sustainable Urban Development (Section E).

6. Sustainable Development Policy and Practice (Section F).

7. Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Sustainability Innovation (Section G).

8. Remote Sensing for Sustainable Management of Land and Biodiversity (Section H)

9. General and Related topics (Section I)

This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference aims to examine, explore and critically engage with issues related to recent insights and advances in these topics. In particular, the conference will encourage both theoretical and practical debates surrounding environmental, economical and social contexts for those who want to go beyond the buzzword.

The conference will be completely free of charge―both to attend and for authors to publish―and is sponsored by MDPI and the scientific journal Sustainability. Selected papers will be published in the journal Sustainability.

The 2nd World Sustainability Forum Conference will be held at www.sciforum.net, a new platform developed by MDPI to organize electronic conferences for scholars.

Please submit your abstract with max 2500 character (in English) by September 10, 2012. Abstracts should be submitted online at sciforum.net/conf/wsf2/call. All submissions will be reviewed by our scientific committee. For accepted abstracts, a full draft paper should be submitted by October 15, 2012.
