The rising concern about global energy crisis and its impact on the environment implies a transition from the current development paradigm to a sustainable one, which remains a significant challenge for scientists, industries and government to make reasonable energy and environmental policies to save energy and reduce environmental impact as well as carbon emission during the managing and controlling process at each level of the concerned ecosystems. There is already plenty of discussion about these problems, along with an abundance of journals with disciplinary territories and sharp boundaries on the intellectual landscape, some of which may prove to be valuable. However, we need a problem-oriented forum, not a discipline-based one, for putting the pieces together, promoting intelligent discussion of an integrated vision of human and natural world.
The International conference on Energy, Ecology and Environment (ICEEE) is created as words to describe a cross-discipline concerning shortage of energy resources, degradation of ecosystems and deterioration of environment. There have been changes in the course of history which has given specific emphases to the specific issues relevant for the respective period of these doctrines. However, the vision of sustainable development is often reflecting energy aspect and neglecting the ecological and environmental issues. No single discipline has the capacity to cope with these kinds of coupled complex issues. Growing interests have thus led us to integrate the main disciplines as our development strategy in order to adapt our future to the irreversible changes inherent in the human civilization. It has become evident that the complexity of such problems requires the need to enhance and deepening the understanding of the implications of different aspects of the development of the world. This international workshop aims to establish close links among these three fields, set up systems science based on knowledge from other sciences and promote multidisciplinary solutions to settle the complex social economic and environmental problems.
