European International Conference on Transforming Urban Systems 2019 (EICTUS-2019)

26-28 Jun 2019
Université de Strasbourg - Strasbourg (France)

With increasing world population, new expected worldwide shares of decreasing fossil fuel energy resources, and climate change, all cities may 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 and its required resources 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. The conference is proposed by the “Zone Atelier Environnementale Urbaine” (ZAEU) ( 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), and part of the European eLTER and international iLTER networks. ZAEU is supported by the University of Strasbourg through the involvement of ~100 research scientists working in 13 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. Major themes of the conference Sustainable cities Urban metabolism and sustainability Urban ecology and eco-services Urban land-use, development and planning 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
Scientific domain : Modeling and Simulation - Environmental Sciences - Biodiversity and Ecology - Environmental and Sociaty - Global Changes - Climatology - Meteorology - Environmental studies - Geography
