    Call for Paper

    First World Congress on Information Technology in Environmental Engineering
    ITEE 2003, Technical University of Gdansk, Poland, June 24 - 27, 2003.

    Acquisition, storage and processing of environmental information are becoming vital to preserving the quality of human life. Potentially dangerous changes are happening in the atmosphere, oceans, animal habitats and places where hazardous materials are used, or have been discarded without adequate environmental protections.

    In recent years, information technology has become significant to all scientific groups and fields involved in environment engineering. Knowledge based systems which enable the study of environmental changes have been developed, are being extended to manage those environments. New paradigms for designing objects to enable easy disassembly and recovery of components contribute to reuse. Developments in exploiting alternative energy sources are reducing dependence on non-renewable resources. Surveillance techniques enable tracking of persons likely to threaten the lives of persons or their environment.

    The ITEE 2003 conference will provide a forum for exchanging information among pollution engineers, knowledge engineers and scientists. Some of the objectives include discussion of projects for long-term storage of data, data update and validation, and the consistency of data. Research topics and funding opportunities discussed at the conference will be of interest to all researchers. Another objective is to discuss means of assessing the potential of individual teams in implementation and modelling of large-scale systems.

    The organization of invited sessions is encouraged. Prospective organizers are requested to send a session proposal - consisting of 4-5 invited papers - to the general chair and respective area co-chair. Invited sessions should preferably start with the title and the purpose of the session and a tutorial paper. The registration fee of the session organizer will be waived, if at least 4 authors of invited papers register to the conference.

    Several workshops/tutorials are planned for ITEE 2003. Each
    workshop will focus on a particular topic, and consist of several
    presentations and open discussions. The proposal for a workshop
    should include the title, topics covered, proposed speakers, targeted
    audiences, and estimated length (hours) of the workshop. The
    proposal should be submitted to the general chair and respective area
    co-chair by September 30, 2002, and the NAISO Planning department:
