The World Congress on Sustainable Technologies (WCST-2012) is a multidisciplinary
congress, Technical Co-Sponsored by IEEE UK/RI Computer Chapter. The WCST is
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.
