With the growing concerns on energy shortage and environmental pollution, the research and development of new energy generation technologies and new environmental policies have been faced significant challenges to provide sustainable energy, ecosystem and environment in managing and controlling the process at each level of the concerned systems. There have been changes in the course of history, which has given the emphases on the specific issues relevant to the respective period of these doctrines. However, the vision of sustainable development should reflect energy aspect as well as ecological and environmental issues. No single discipline has the capacity to cope with these coupled complex issues. Our strategy is to integrate different disciplines to understand deeply the implications of various aspects of the world.
Currently, there is an abundance of valuable journals with disciplinary territories and sharp boundaries on the intellectual landscape. We need a problem-oriented forum without boundaries that can establish close links among the fields of energy, ecosystem and environment, promote intellectual discussions of an integrated vision of these three fields and provide multidisciplinary solutions to solve complex social economic and environmental problems.
The International Conference on Energy, Ecology and Environment (ICEEE) will create such a forum for scientists, researchers, engineers and government officials home and abroad?with cross-discipline concerning energy shortage, ecosystem degradation and environment deterioration, coming together to discuss and present the latest technology, new environmental policies as well as future direction and trends in energy, ecology and environment.
