Conference on Urban Sustainability and Resilience

Reminder for Call for abstracts – 1st International Conference on Urban Sustainability and Resilience on 5-6 November 2012, UCL, London, UK.

We are pleased to remind you that the UCL Centre for Urban Sustainability and Resilience will be holding the 1st International Conference on Urban Sustainability and Resilience on 5-6 November 2012, UCL, London, UK.

We are inviting papers to be considered for oral or poster sessions at the conference and we will be sponsoring a prize for the best young researcher presentation delivered at the conference. To be considered, please submit a short 500 word abstract by 4th July 2012, to conference@usar-conference-2012.org

A selection of the best papers will be published as a book after the conference.

Keynote speakers include Sandy Halliday (Gaia Group). Sandy is a chartered engineer working in research and design of sustainable buildings and places at the Gaia Group. Her degree in Engineering Design & Appropriate Technology focused on socially and environmentally responsible engineering, in 1982, when such things were very unfashionable. She is the author of Sustainable Construction (2008) Butterworth-Heinemann.

The 1st International Conference on Urban Sustainability and Resilience will bring together world experts from across a wide range of engineering, science and social science disciplines with three main objectives:

· Bring together a strong research community committed to address some of the most pressing issues that human societies have ever faced;

· Take stock of the current state of knowledge in the field of urban sustainability and resilience

· Put forward a coherent future research agenda in the field.

The central themes of the conference will be:

· Facets of urban resilience

· Feeding the city

· Towards a low-carbon urban environment

Registration includes an optional extra conference day on Wednesday 7th November 2012 to take part in one or more exciting technical tours, workshops and site visits in London. This is an excellent opportunity to see London in action and the tours have been specifically selected to relate to the conference themes. Excellent for visitors to London and Londoners alike.
