      World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2012)
      Technical Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI Section
      19-22 November, 2012
      London, UK

      The World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2012)
      is a multidisciplinary congress, bridging efforts across the natural,
      social and engineering sciences, the environment and development
      of communities. The congress covers a wide spectrum of topics
      that relate to sustainability, which includes technical and non-technical
      research areas. It also encourages sharing new knowledge in the field
      of sustainable technologies and the environmental impacts.

      The mission of WCST-2012 is to provide the opportunities for
      collaboration and reflection that have the potential to greatly enhance
      the infrastructure and capacity for conducting and applying art,
      science and technology for sustainability. The WCST bridges
      the gap between academia and industry by creating awareness of
      current development in sustainable technologies.

      The topics in WCST-2012 include but are not confined to the
      following areas:
