World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2011)
November 7-10, 2011, London, UK (www.wcst.org)

The World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2011) is a 
multidisciplinary congress, Technical Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI 
Computer Chapter. The WCST bridging efforts across the natural, social 
and engineering sciences, the environment and development of 
communities. The congress covers a wide spectrum of topics that relate 
to sustainability, which includes technical and non-technical research 
areas. It also encourages sharing new knowledge in the field of 
sustainable technologies and the environmental impacts.

The mission of WCST-2011 is to provide the opportunities for 
collaboration and reflection that have the potential to greatly enhance 
the infrastructure and capacity for conducting and applying art, science 
and technology for sustainability. The WCST bridges the gap between 
academia and industry by creating awareness of current development in 
sustainable technologies.

The topics in WCST-2011 include but are not confined to the following areas:
