As an expert or professional who is interested in advancing global sustainable development through efficient/effective programs, research and policy implementation on the triple areas of energy, environment and disasters, you are invited to contribute your ideas and communicate your research results to a global audience at the upcoming INCEED 2005 Conference. The conference, which will be hosted by the Global Institute for Energy and Environmental Systems (GIEES) of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA in Charlotte, July 24-30, 2005, is jointly organized by the International Society of Environmental Geotechnology (ISEG), the Global Alliance for Disaster Reduction (GADR) and UNESCO along with other large national and international organizations. More than 40 other organizations are supporters of this conference which is expected to draw more than 800 researchers, corporate officials, policy makers, teachers and students from all over the world. About 100 sessions, panels and forums that will feature keynote lectures, presentations, recorded debates and discussion panels are planned. Some of the session discussions will be video-taped for subsequent television broadcast. The best papers on thematic topics will also be selected for review and possible publication in special editions of reputable, peer-reviewed international journals.
The expanded INCEED 2005 Conference is an outgrowth of the regular ISEG conferences which started in 1993 with the continuing objective of applying technical and social science knowledge from a diversity of disciplines to address critical issues in sustainable development. Conferences that have been hosted in North America, Asia, South America and Europe have drawn an average of 500 participants from 50 countries. These conferences are held biennially and rotated among different continents. INCEED 2005 is a special intermediate year conference that has been expanded to include coverage of the plans and programs of UNESCO and GADR as well as other organizations on hazards. Research advances communicated at these events and some consensus positions will be directly put into public policies by agencies in many countries. The ISEG-GADR-UNESCO trio of organizers seeks to continue to promote scientific cooperation among countries, organizations and individuals on the thematic issues of this conference.
