21 – 24 July 2015 | Singapore

In July 2015, Singapore will once again host the World Engineers Summit on Climate Change (WES) 2015, focusing on the theme ‘Sustainable Urban Development for Global Climate Resilience’. After its inaugural success in 2013. WES has become an anticipated platform by the global community to exchange insights and ideas to address the effects of climate change.

Triggered by rapid urbanisation and industrialisation activities, global warming is unleashing undesirable effects across the globe, increasing average temperature, rising seawater levels, causing unpredictable weather patterns and destroying food crops, properties and lives. No country is immune to climate change and the variability it brings to the weather. There is a mounting necessity to place sustainability at the core of urban and industrial development.

With their intellectual and problem-solving capacity, engineers are best placed to lead the transition to a sustainable future, by analysing problems and developing cost-effective technological solutions, bringing knowledge about the problem of climate change and the urgency for resolving it to the community-at-large and working with other stakeholders to bring about real progress.

To harness the collective thinking and expertise of engineers to build climate resilience, The Institution of Engineers, Singapore (IES) will hold WES 2015 from 21 to 24 July 2015 at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre. Convening engineers from multiple disciplines, urban planning specialists, energy specialists, environmental and water specialists, academia, financiers, policy makers, and business leaders of corporations from across industries around the world, WES 2015 will see the discussion of innovative solutions and sharing of best engineering practices to help realise milestones in the journey to a sustainable and resilient future.

The WES 2015 Organising Committee invites the submissions of technical papers in the following tracks:
