You can submit your presentation ideas as an abstract/proposal by October 31, 2008 for the Sustainability Summit 09 which will be held July 14-15, 2009 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The following text is taken directly from the website and I have also included the link to the registration page.
Sustainability Summit '09 Conference and Exhibition Showcase will bring together corporate visionaries, policy makers, environmental advocacy groups and leading experts to discuss financially viable practices and strategies that address and mitigate corporate impact on the long-term health of the earth.
A significant aspect of this leading-edge conference will be its use of telepresence technology to facilitate interaction and participation between live presenters and delegates from around the globe. We are inviting industry leaders, researchers, engineers, scientists, architects, economists, consultants, and policy-makers to participate in this exciting event.
Sustainability Summit '09 will include keynotes, plenary sessions, roundtables and panel discussions and will comprise four tracks:
• Carbon Reduction: Trading and offsetting strategies, efficiencies, alternate energy resources, and behavioral modification
• Infrastructure and Real Estate: Smart/green/capacity building, enterprise planning, recycling, and supply-chain management
• Transportation: Alternative fuels, travel reduction strategies, intermodal transport, mechanical efficiencies, and sustainable value chains
• Information Technology: Collaborative technologies, virtualization of resources, Eco-Patent Commons, energy efficiency equipment and strategies, and telecommuting paradigms
Corporate, academic, nonprofit, and political entities and organizations are encouraged to share and present new ideas, technologies, strategies, practical outcomes, research and case studies in line with conference themes by submitting session abstract proposals by October 31, 2008.
