8th International Conference on Urban Regeneration and Sustainability 2013

  • Conference Call
  • The 8th Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Urban Regen­er­a­tion and Sub­stain­abil­ity 2013 aims to address the many inter-​related aspects of the urban envi­ron­ment from trans­port and mobil­ity to social exclu­sion and crime pre­ven­tion. The meet­ing will build on the con­tri­bu­tions made in pre­vi­ous con­fer­ences, which suc­cess­fully man­aged to pro­vide an inter­na­tional view of the prob­lems fac­ing mod­ern cities and their solutions.

    The Sus­tain­able City 2013 fol­lows seven very suc­cess­ful meet­ings held in Rio (2000); Segovia (2002); Siena (2004); Tallinn (2006); Skiathos (2008); A Coruña (2010); and Ancona (2012) and will be held Decem­ber 3 – 5, 2013 in Putra­java, Malaysia. The con­fer­ences attracted a large num­ber of con­tri­bu­tions from par­tic­i­pants from dif­fer­ent back­grounds and coun­tries. The vari­ety of top­ics and expe­ri­ences is one of the main rea­sons behind the suc­cess of the series.

    This series of con­fer­ences addresses the mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary aspects of urban plan­ning, a result of the increas­ing size of the cities, the amount of resources and ser­vices requested and the com­plex­ity of mod­ern society.

    Urban areas pro­duce a series of envi­ron­men­tal chal­lenges aris­ing from the con­sump­tion of nat­ural resources and the sub­se­quent gen­er­a­tion of waste and pol­lu­tion, con­tribut­ing to the devel­op­ment of social and eco­nomic imbal­ances. All these prob­lems, which con­tinue to grow in our soci­ety, require the devel­op­ment of new solutions.

    The chal­lenge of plan­ning sus­tain­able con­tem­po­rary cities lies in con­sid­er­ing the dynam­ics of urban sys­tems, exchange of energy and mat­ter, and the func­tion and main­te­nance of ordered struc­tures directly or indi­rectly sup­plied and main­tained by nat­ural sys­tems. The task of researchers, aware of the com­plex­ity of the con­tem­po­rary city, is to improve the capac­ity to man­age human activ­i­ties, pur­su­ing wel­fare and pros­per­ity in sus­tain­able cities.
