Presents new concepts in the field of environmental engineering
Focuses on as well as practical applications and experiences
Shows how scientists in different disciplines can work together
Increasing environmental problems demand interdisciplinary approaches which enable engineers, natural scientists, economists and computer scientists to work together. Information technology has become significant to all scientists involved in environmental engineering, covering modeling and simulation, information systems, formal methods and data processing techniques, tools and measurement techniques. This book publishes the proceedings of the ITEE 07 conference, where new concepts as well as practical applications and experiences in the field of environmental engineering have been presented and discussed.
