Lorenz Hilty to speak at EJC 2011 in Montreal

The lecture will provide an overview of sustainability issues of ICT, starting from the Green IT perspective and extending it in several directions: life-cycle thinking, issues beyond energy efficiency (scarce metals), enabling effects of ICT, and systemic effects of ICT. Based on a review of studies assessing the potential of ICT to reduce the carbon footprint of the economy, the conditions are discussed under which ICT could substantially contribute to sustainable development.
