Happy 2013, and Happy Lunar New Year for next weekend.
Our blog at http://isie-sem.blogspot.com.au has been a little quiet lately. Your contributions are very welcome! The blog gets plenty of traffic (over 1100 hits to date) so is a great way to describe and promote your institutions, advertise conferences and jobs, and alert international colleagues to recent research and publications. Showcasing institutes, especially, has been a very popular feature. Please send articles (and images if available) to email@example.com. They don’t need to be long – 200 to 300 words are plenty – and we have an in-house editor if you have any concerns about your English. We look forward to receiving your contributions.
ISIE membership renewals are now due. Please renew at is4ie.org/join if you have not already done so, to continue to be part of the exciting conversation about industrial ecology and socio-economic metabolism.
The next ISIE conference will be held in June 2013 in Ulsan, South Korea. Click here to learn more about our conferences. Members receive a significant discount on registration fees. Speaking of conferences, the last SEM section conference was held in Darmstadt, Germany in September 2012. The section board is seeking expressions of interest for a host for the next section conference, in September 2014 … where would you suggest? Please send expressions of interest to firstname.lastname@example.org by the end of February, and the section board will discuss them at its next meeting.
