The International Conference on Water, Environment, Energy and Society is being organized jointly by the Institut des Regions Arides, Tunisia, AISECT University, India, and Texas A&M University, USA, from 08 to 11 May 2018 in Djerba Island, Tunisia.
The objective of the ICWEES-2018 is to integrate research, technology and practice, in the fields of Water, Environment. Energy, Sustainability, Health, Management and Society; and bring together Scientists, Academicians, Researchers, Practicing Engineers, Consultants, Planners, Policy Makers, Economists and Social Scientists, Managers, and Leaders from around the world to share their knowledge, skills, experience, and expertise through research papers, case studies, and keynote addresses on, but not limited to, water resources, climate change, ecosystems implications for human health, sustainable land use and eco-cities, integrated resources management, green economy, green energy, cleaner production, planning, disaster management, environmental management, etc. The proposed major themes of the conference will be discussed in parallel sessions to provide opportunities for the delegates from around the world to share their knowledge, skills, experiences, and expertise with focus on water, environmental, energy, and societal challenges facing our planet and the future of our generation. Environmental problems, such as desertification processes, land degradation and rehabilitation, land cover and land use change, climate change, droughts, early warning, and more, are of utmost importance in arid environments where natural resources are scarce and vulnerable.
The conference will include paper presentations describing original work on the current state of research and practices in technologies and systems for characterization, mitigation, soil, water resources, and climate change and prevention, preparation, and response and recovery of disasters. The themes include (but not limited to): water resources, land degradation and management, energy resources and use, environmental issues, related social and economic development, geo-information and space technologies, multi-sensor data collection, information dissemination, and early warning and standardization. Studies in all scales are welcome, a special emphasis will be given to large scale, watershed studies.
