Calls for Paper and Participation

IPS2 2018 will provide a unique arena to discuss opportunities, challenges, and solutions related to IPS2 and REES. The discussion will be based on the latest findings from industry and cutting-edge research results from academia. In addition, this will be an excellent networking opportunity with delegates coming globally from both industry and academia. Especially for researchers, the sessions with scientific papers will focus on discussion of commonly raised issues within a given topic, because we believe discussion is what you want from attending an academic conference. The discussion will be moderated by leading researchers in the area. In addition, workshops with industry practitioners for industry-oriented topics will be an invaluable opportunity to learn from companies, mainly based in Sweden, working on IPS2 and REES. Especially for delegates from industry, the entire conference will give an excellent opportunity to obtain new thinking, ideas, methods and contacts for your business. IPS2 and REES are promising concepts to enhance the economic and environmental performance of your business.
