Society and Materials Conference: SAM-7
We are pleased to announce that the 7th edition of the Society and Materials Conference SAM-7 will be held at RWTH Aachen University on April 25-26, 2013.
As part of the Social Value of Materials (SOVAMAT) initiative (www.sovamat.org), the SAM conferences aim to address the issues of sustainability assessment, and to foster the interaction of the soft and hard sciences by bringing together an interdisciplinary research community to discuss new metrics developments and to promote strategies towards sustainable development.
We encourage the participation of sociologists, engineers, industrial ecologists, LCA practitioners, political scientists, and economists, interested in communicating and disseminating innovative ideas on these topics. Previous SAM conference programs, articles, and presentations are available on the SOVAMAT web site.
Proposal for papers are expected to be sent to Adriana Carvallo Aceves with copy to Anne-Laure Hettinger by January 15, 2013. The abstract template is available for download on the SOVAMAT website www.sovamat.org
For registration and further information, please refer to our flyer.
We look forward to seeing you in Aachen.
