Call for Presentations: Green Electronics Council’s Emerging Green Conference

The Green Electronics Council, which operates the EPEAT Registry, today issued a Call for Presentations for the Green Electronics Council’s Emerging Green Conference 2015. From September 22-24 in Portland, Oregon, USA, global technology leaders will convene at Emerging Green to discuss the advances, challenges and role of electronics in the circular economy. Individuals interested in presenting may submit their abstracts online.

With the overall theme of “Electronics in the Circular Economy,” Emerging Green 2015 will be comprised of multiple tracks that address key issues for electronics and sustainability. Possible focus areas may include “Critical Materials Management,” “Next-Gen Products and Sustainability,” E-Waste and Recycling,” “Greening with Electronics” and “Electronics and Emerging Economies.”

“Emerging Green is the place to engage all stakeholders in meaningful dialogue about the future of green electronics,” said Robert Frisbee, Green Electronics Council CEO. “We look forward to hosting an international conference filled with presentations that shed light on the intersection of sustainability and electronics innovation.”

All stakeholders with an interest in green electronics should consider presenting at Emerging Green 2015. There is no application fee. Whether a member of industry, an environmental advocate, a researcher, a purchaser or a recycler, anyone who wishes to engage in meaningful dialogue about how electronics can be a cornerstone of a vibrant and healthy world is invited to submit a proposal. Emerging Green is an ideal conference at which to showcase success stories, propose innovative solutions and gain feedback from leading world experts.

Presentation abstracts will be accepted until May 1, 2015. A multi-stakeholder Program Committee comprised of volunteer experts in their field will review all qualified submissions. Proposals will be judged on five criteria: Innovation and Creativity, Relevance to Industry, Practicality of Implementation, Global Implications and the Committee’s Overall Impressions.

Applicants will be notified by July 1, 2015, whether their proposal has been accepted.
