Scope and Format

The ISEE will continue its established tradition as the world’s leading forum on electronics and the environment research and practice with its ninth annual meeting in Denver, Colorado. This year’s theme, "Life-Cycle Environmental Stewardship for Electronic Products" will reaffirm the electronics industry’s leadership in environmental design and management, including life-cycle management, disassembly, recycling, takeback, energy use minimization, elimination of hazardous substances, supply chain management, and other activities. We will also look forward to new domains such as electronic commerce, new materials and components, and advances in manufacturing.

More broadly, the ISEE has grown into a premier meeting of professionals in the design for environment, pollution prevention and environmental policy fields. This year’s ISEE will feature the time-proven program of technical sessions with paper presentations, tutorials for in-depth training in relevant fields, roundtable sessions to discuss state-of-the-art issues in smaller group settings, and exhibits of participating organizations. In addition, we have added new programs: a panel of speakers on the environmental impacts of e-commerce, and a student poster session.

Highlights for the 2001 ISEE program:

The ISEE chairpersons, the Technical Program Committee, and the IEEE Electronics & the Environment Technical Committee are interested in your input about the conference and the field of electronics and environment in general. We would be delighted if you shared your views, ideas, and volunteer efforts with us, and helped carry the load of organizing such a large event.

We hope that the 2001 ISEE will be both an enjoyable and learning experience for all attendees. The symposium provides an excellent opportunity to keep current with new developments and to interact and network with peers and experts in this field.

We hope to see you in Denver in May 2001!
