Dear Colleague: 

The American Center for Life Cycle Assessment annual conference LCA XII will be held in Tacoma, WA on September 25-27, 2012, and as always, we need your help to make it a success. 

Our theme this year is Life Cycle Thinking; Life Cycle Living -- we are inspired by being in Tacoma, the first lifecycle city, and think that this would be a good time to celebrate LCA applications that move life cycle thinking into action, through policy, education and business integration. But of course, all LCA-related topics are welcome. 

We are seeking presentation abstracts for regular sessions and also ideas for special sessions. 

The deadlines for submissions: 
   Special Sessions - 30 April 
   Abstracts - 14 May 
   Student Posters - 14 May 
   Papers for the conference proceedings - 16 July 

The conference home page is at: 

We will also be holding our third annual student poster award, so please do share this announcement with your students and other colleagues. The student poster flyer can be found here: 

Please send questions and comments to: 

We look forward to seeing you in Tacoma!
