Through research and proven practice, the aim of the International Conference of Sustainable Ecological Engineering Design for Society (SEEDS) is to foster ideas on how to reduce negative impacts on the environment while providing for the health and well-being of society. The professions and fields of research required to ensure buildings meet user demands and provide healthy enclosures are many and diverse. The SEEDS conference addresses the interdependence of people, the built and natural environments, and recognizes the interdisciplinary and international themes necessary to assemble the knowledge required for positive change.
Mohammad Dastbaz, PhD, is the Deputy Vice Chancellor at University of Suffolk. Professor Dastbaz's research work over recent years has been focused on the use and impact of emerging technologies in society, particularly learning, training and the development of "eGovernment." Dr. Dastbaz has led EU and UK based funded research projects and has been the Symposium Chair of Multimedia Systems in IEEE's Information Visualisation (IV) conference since 2002. He has over 50 refereed publications, including numerous journal paper articles, conference papers, book chapters and books on e-learning, eGovernment and the design and development of Multimedia Systems. Professor Dastbaz is a Fellow of the British Computer Society and UK's Higher Education Academy as well as the professional member of ACM and IEEE's computer society.Christopher Gorse, PhD, is Director of Leeds Sustainability Institute, Head of the Centre for the Built Environment and Professor of Construction and Project Management at Leeds Beckett University. He is an Engineering Professors Council Member, Chartered Builder, Vice Chair for the Association of Researchers In Construction Management leading research projects in the energy, sustainability and building performance. Chris is an established author with publications in management, law, construction and refurbishment. While working in the construction industry, he operated as an engineer and project manager working on both building and civil engineering projects and continues to undertake legal and technical consultancy.Lloyd M. Scott, PhD, is a Professor of Practice in the Construction Science Division at the University of Oklahoma. He is also a practicing academic at the Technological University Dublin (formerly the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT)). He attended DIT as a trade apprentice in Carpentry and Joinery and later qualified with a City and Guilds certificate in SiteManagement, where he worked in the industry as site superintendent for some years. Lloyd was a scholarship recipient at the University of Limerick where he earned a B.Tech (Hons) in Wood and Building Technology in 1988. He received a MA in Educational Management at Waterford Institute of Technology and a PhD from The School of the Built Environment at the University of Salford. Dr. Scott worked in construction as a site superintendent for a large contracting company in Dublin for many years. He continues to perform select projects, and provide consulting services with the emphasis on sustainable construction practice. Before becoming associated with the University of Oklahoma in 2009, he had spent the previous nine years in the newly formed Construction Management (CM) Department at DIT where he set up the CM program. He has been recognized for his efforts with students in and out of the classroom, has published a number of articles in peer-reviewed journals and has completed various externally funded projects. His research interests revolve around sustainability in construction and educational assessment in built environment. Professor Scott is an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Construction Education and Research and also serves on the editorial boards of the International Journal of Building Pathology and Adaptation and The Mass Timber Journal.
