Dear Friends and Colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure and honor to invite you to attend the 10th International Conference of the International Society for Industrial Ecology, to be held at the Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, from July 7 to 11, 2019.

The conference theme is "Industrial Ecology for Eco-civilization". To make industrial civilization transform into eco-civilization, we need concept breaking, theoretical innovation, methodological support, and tools development. Triggered by the seminal article 30 years ago, luckily, industrial ecology has bred dozens of toolboxes, including social-economic metabolism, eco-industrial development, life cycle assessment, environmental input-output analysis, complex systems modeling, etc. We hope that you would continue to bring brilliant ideas, best work and profound enthusiasm to the conference, and make ISIE2019 another big success to promote the use of industrial ecology in research, education, policy, community development, and industrial practices.

China is experiencing a great transition from an agriculture-dominated country to the world plant with the largest scale and richness. More recently, Beijing, the capital of China, witnessed a significant improvement in air quality. All theses make China to be the best touchstone for examining the achievements of industrial ecology. Thus, you can enjoy the cultural relics with thousands of years under the blue sky and white cloud, including the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, etc.

We look forward to seeing you at Tsinghua University. You have a chance to network with the leading scholars of industrial ecology from around the world, to share and exchange cutting-edge ideas and work, to visit Chinese transitional metropolitan areas in the world.

Welcome to the 2019 ISIE Conference!
