IAER announces summit theme.

The International Association of Electronics Recyclers (IAER), Albany, and the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Electronics and the Environment (ISEE), Washington, D.C., will host their annual joint conference on electronics recycling May 10-13, 2004.

The conference is comprised of two major components: the ISEE Symposium May 10-12 and IAER Electronics Recycling Summit May 10, 12 and 13.

The ISEE symposium focuses on research findings and technology advancement. Original manufacturers, academia, electronics recyclers, public policy makers and consultants will present technical papers on various topics, including designing for the environment, electronics recycling, reverse logistics and environmental policies.

The IAER Summit focuses on providing an effective platform to discuss the practical issues confronting the electronics recycling industry.

The theme for the summit is "After Transformation--Let's Soar!" The theme explores how recyclers have responded to the fundamental changes to the industry resulting from domestic and international economic, environmental and legislative developments. These questions will be addressed in moderated sessions to be held during the summit. The summit will include facility tours to Arizona-based electronics recyclers.

The IAER's affiliated educational organization the International Electronics Recyclers Institute (IERI) will feature two courses designed to enhance the technical and managerial skills of recyclers, governmental institutions and other related organizations May 10.
