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

  • Sustainable cities
  • 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
