European International Conference on Transforming Urban Systems (EICTUS-2019)
Jun 26, 2019 - Jun 28, 2019
With climate change, increasing world population, and new expected worldwide shares of fossil fuel energy resources, all cities will face to serious tensions in a very near future.
The EICTUS-2019 conference is proposed to bring together all the actors working on urban environment at international scale. The project aims to share experiences and create an international dynamic to find collective solutions to environmental and social problems that are arising progressively in many cities of the world.
Major themes of the conference:
Urban metabolism and sustainability
Urban ecology and eco-services
Urban land-use, development and planning
Urban climate, risks, resilience, vulnerabilities and adaptation
Energy resources, sustainable urban energy productions and supplies
Urban mobility, sustainable and innovative urban transport systems
Urban pollutions (air, water, soil) and reduction strategies
Urban risks, remediation and protection strategies
Urban economy and cost-effectiveness strategies
Other inter-disciplinary topics related to urban transition
The conference is proposed by the “Zone Atelier Environnementale Urbaine” (ZAEU) (https://zaeu-strasbourg.eu). ZAEU is an interdisciplinary research network, part of the Zones Atelier (ZA) of the Institute of Ecology and Environment (INEE) of the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), France. It is also art of the Long-Term Ecosystem Research in Europe (eLTER, http://www.lter-europe.net). Long-Term Ecosystem Research (LTER) is an essential component of world-wide efforts to better understand ecosystems. ZAEU is supported by the University of Strasbourg through the involvement of ~100 research scientists working in 13 research laboratories covering several fields and disciplines. It was built in connection with the Strasbourg city authorities, Strasbourg Eurometropole (EMS).
The main objective of ZAEU is to co-build common knowledge to face current and future environmental issues in a logical sustainable urban development. This co-understanding is based on a long-term observation of the processes and dynamics of the eco-social system. This involves understanding through the analysis of information collected, measured or simulated, the validation of these processes, the proposal of scenarios for the future, but also the exchange of information with local authorities to quickly applied results.
The accepted manuscripts will be published in conference proceedings. Other than the publication of conference proceedings, selected papers with extraordinary findings mainly about solutions to combat the environment problems at urban scale, will be published in form of a Book with ISBN for policy makers.
