First International Conference on Urban Sustainability and Resilience, London, UK
The First International Conference on Urban Sustainability and Resilience will take place from 5 to 6 November 2012 in London, UK.
The continuing trend towards urbanisation has demonstrated the connection between human societies, technology and natural environment and it is now crucial to understand how they influence each other. In this regard, the decisions made today by engineers, policy makers, designers and planners often affect the generations to come. These decisions must be backed by sound science and knowledge of social mechanisms.
The conference will bring together world experts from across a wide range of engineering, science and social science disciplines to discuss some of societies' most urgent matters.
