ETHOS Conference, Seattle, January 2009

ETHOS Conference, January 23-25, 2009
Mark Bryden, December 2008

All,

It's almost that time again time again. The ETHOS conference will be held January 23-25 in Kirkland, Washington. Kirkland is a suburb of Seattle.

The 2009 ETHOS Conference aims to expand its reach from previous annual meetings. We invite presentation, workshops, and discussion of technology in the developing world. Particularly those talks focused on heating and cooking stoves, design for developing communities, incineration of medical waste, and lighting. In addition we are hoping to sponsor a track on the topic of carbon credits in the developing world.

We encourage the participation of Southern partners, international stoves experts, and development specialists with field experience in the transfer of appropriate technologies.

Talks
Please submit a title and brief abstract of your proposed talk on or before January 1.

Preconference workshops
Friday, January 23 morning and afternoon are available for preconference workshops. Please contact me before December 15 if you wish to present a preconference workshop.

Other Activities
There are many formats (paper session, workshops, hands-on sessions, panels, one-on-one mentoring etc) that can present relevant information to our community. If you wish to organize one of these please contact me with the details before December 15.
