11th Urban Environment Symposium (11UES) - Urban Futures for a Sustainable World
Location and date : Karlsruhe, Germany, September 16-19 2012
We would like to inform you that the 11th Urban Environment Symposium will be held in Karlsruhe, Germany on September 16-19 2012. The symposium is organised by Chalmers University of Technology and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
The Urban Environment Symposium is a forum for recent research on all aspects of the urban environment. The first symposium was held in London in 1983 as a meeting place for researchers with a focus on urban pollution. Since then, there has been a growing interest for including other aspects of the urban environment to provide a more extensive cover of this research area. Topics at recent symposia in Madrid in 2008 and in Gothenburg in 2010 included air quality, urban water, climate change, contaminated sites, transportation and mobility. Continuing this tradition the upcoming 11th Urban Environment Symposium will cover a broad range of topics related to the urban environment.
Abstract submissions for oral or poster presentations are welcomed on any of the following topics :
- Environmental Pollution
- Modelling of Urban Dynamics
- Biodiversity and Ecosystem services
- Climate Change and Adaptation
- Health and Well-Being
- Urban Infrastructure Management
- Vulnerability to Natural Hazards
- LCA & Ecological Footprint
Authors wishing to present papers are invited to submit an abstract by March 31, 2012. Please note that abstracts must be short (less than 300 words, no figures or tables) and should be submitted via the conference website (submission will be available soon). The official language is English.
For additional information, please contact Sebastien Rauch.
We hope to see you in Karlsruhe.
