International Land Use Symposium ILUS 2017: Call for Abstracts and Registration open

Sustainable land use is a pressing challenge all over the world. To handle it in an appropriate manner spatial data is needed. The International Land Use Symposium (ILUS) 2017, to be held in Dresden from 1st to 3rd November 2017, will address spatial data modelling and visualisation to enlighten sustainable policy making. Suggested topics for presentation should be submitted by 31 July.

 

ILUS 2017 will examine new concepts in overlapping fields of studies which focus on the question of how recent developments in spatial analysis and modelling can lead to sustainable resource management and better support of planning and urban and regional development. The programme consists of three main topics: Big Data and the City as a Complex System, Historic Settlement and Landscape Analysis, and Morphological Analysis. An open section provides space for other relevant contributions.

 

The symposium will open with contributions of renowned international scientists in the area of spatial analysis and spatial planning. Keynote speeches will be held by Nikos A. Salingaros, University of Texas/USA, Luís M. Bettencourt, Santa Fe Institute/USA, Anna Hersperger, Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research, Marc Barthélemy, Institut de Physique Theorique/France, Bin Jiang, University of Gävle/Sweden, and Dr. Serge Salat, Urban Morphology and Complex Systems Institute, Paris.

 

Call for Abstracts

Suggested topics for English-language presentations can be submitted at the latest by 31 July 2017. Early-stage researchers are encouraged to contribute. Selected contributions will be published in a special issue. The detailed call for abstracts is published on the symposium website: http://www.ilus2017.ioer.info.

About ILUS

 

The biennial International Land Use Symposium brings together leading academics in the fields of GIScience and spatial planning. The objective of the interdisciplinary conference is to advance the understanding of built-up areas and to develop new ideas for the sustainable use of the precious resource soil. ILUS brings together leading academics and interested attendees for presentation, discussion, and collaborative networking in the fields of spatial sciences, environmental studies, geography, cartography, GIScience, urban planning, architecture, which relate to investigations of settlements and infrastructure. The symposium is organized by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional development (IOER).
