The International Society for Environmental Information Sciences (ISEIS) is a non-profit and free-membership organization of individuals, institutions and corporations. The society is dedicated to the development of information systems technology for environmental applications. It promotes the international exchange of knowledge in the field of environmental information systems research. The Environmental Policy Informatics is one of the technical commissions of the ISEIS, who aims to improve our ability to identify, assimilate and process environmental policies as well as transferring them in ecosystem simulation, forecasting and regulation at all practical scales, and to communicate those improvements to a wide scientific and professional audience.
The ISEIS Commission of Environmental Policy Informatics (CEPI) is dedicated to the development of information technologies for environmental policy making, under challenges of climate change, GHG-emission mitigation, ecosystem protection, pollutant control, and resources conservation. CEPI will serve as a network platform for scientists, engineers, professionals, and authority groups in developing desired interdisciplinary technologies for supporting environmental policy making. Forums and workshops will be held regularly for communications of recent progress in the studies of environmental policy informatics. A wide range of emerging environmental issues will be explored, with their socio-economic and environmental implications being highlighted. International collaboration and public participation will be promoted.
