Increasing environmental problems that also affect human health demand for interdisciplinary approaches where engineers, natural scientists,
economists and computer scientists work together. Information technology has become significant to all scientific groups and fields involved in environmental engineering: Model based systems which enable the study of environmental changes have been developed and are being extended to manage those environments. New paradigms for designing objects to enable easy disassembly and recovery of components contribute to reuse. Webbased information systems enhance public awareness to environmental changes and allow participation in decision making. Developments in exploiting alternative energy sources are reducing dependence on non-renewable resources. Numerical economy-environment models contribute to cost-benefit analysis of environmental policy, and environmental monitoring and accounting systems facilitate market-based environmental regulation. How can these developments be enhanced? Further advance is going to be possible only if scientific teams have adequate experience, methods and tools for investigation of the changes in the environment. Success requires a high level of organization related to technical as well as scientific and human
aspects of information handling. The ITEE'2007 conference will provide a forum for exchanging information among environmental engineers, computer scientists and economists.
