Welcome to the McGill Sustainability Research Symposium

The theme for the 6th annual McGill Sustainability Research Symposium is Technology for Sustainability! Sustainability research is, by design and necessity, interdisciplinary; researchers in this field require platforms and spaces to share ideas and create connections. The symposium meets this need by bringing together faculty, students, and leaders from the Montreal community to share research on, and solutions for, sustainability challenges that we face today.

Our speakers span the faculties of Arts, Science, Management and Engineering will discuss topics that include data analysis, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), climate change monitoring and evaluation, among others. This year, we anticipate a lively symposium which will address questions such as: ‘How can technology help improve environmental sustainability?’ and ‘To what extent can technology help bring about positive change?’.

The conference will take place on March 9th 2016. We are accepting talk and abstract submissions until February 13th.
