Welcome

After a long absence from physical conferences due to the Corona pandemic, we are happy to announce that the 14th ISIE Socio-Economic Metabolism section conference will take place in Vienna from 19-21 September 2022.

The ISIE-SEM conference will be co-organised by the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU) and TU Wien (TU). 

While the main conference will take place in a physical setting, we will offer hybrid options, with plenary sessions being livestreamed to all colleagues, who want join us remotely from all over the world.

Topics of the conference will include:

  • Methodological and analytical advances in socio-economic metabolism
  • Concepts, data, and modelling of the stock-flow-service nexus
  • Resource, waste and recycling management
  • Circular economy
  • Socio-economic metabolism and the energy, climate, land and water nexus
  • Trade, supply chains, and their embodied environmental impacts
  • Resource-efficient, low-carbon urban metabolism
  • Socio-economic metabolism and economic-environmental theory and policy
  • Industrial symbiosis and eco-industrial development
  • Open science in industrial ecology

We look forward to welcoming you in Vienna as one of the academic centres of material flow analysis and SEM research. We hope for exciting in-person exchanges around how to address some of the major societal challenges of our time.
