Introduction
Development and planning problems continuously affect both rural and urban areas all over the world.
Urban development has led to the deterioration of the environment and has also worsened the problems faced by rural areas, such as mountain regions, coastal areas, and many others. Taking into consideration the interaction between different regions and developing new methodologies for monitoring, planning, and implementing novel strategies can hinder solutions and lead to environmental pollution and non-sustainable use of available resources.
Nowadays, sustainable development has become an inevitable choice for humanity after facing a series of resource and environmental problems that have become universal problems faced by all countries all over the globe.
The topic of how to scientifically develop while effectively using the limited environmental resources has become an important topic in academia, the private sector, and governmental departments.
IEREK organizes the Urban Planning and Architecture Design for Sustainable Development Conference to exchange a better understanding of the sustainable development between social and economic development with the environmental resources, exploring the problems between the resources of the environment and sustainable development in the academia, engineering technology, management and policy.
The Urban Planning Conference deals with all aspects of development and planning and brings together scientists and other stakeholders from across the globe to discuss the latest advances in the field. It also aims to highlight developments in managerial strategies and assessment tools for policy and decision makers.

Benefits of Attending

Attending conferences is very beneficial on the professional level. Conferences are full of people promoting new ideas which will expand your knowledge and undoubtedly help your career.

You not only get to hear presentations but also converse with other researchers from different universities and even countries you may have only heard or read about. You learn from experts in the field. It is a great opportunity to find more about your field and listen to ideas that could help inspire research ideas of your own.
Not to mention, getting an overview of the place or the city where the conference is being held, and learning about its people and culture.

Conferences also can expand your resources by providing a great opportunity to promote gathered information on new technologies related to your research. Moreover, they let you test them out, share teaching tools and techniques, or even obtain samples of textbooks.

It is an opportunity to engage with respectable professors and discuss with them the very latest research projects they could be working on.

Conference Venue

University of Salento. Lecce – Italy.

A young dynamic university, keen to expand and to prove itself at a national and international level. Since 1955, the Università del Salento has had the aim of promoting knowledge, skill, and merit and has offered a large range of educational opportunities.

The University of Salento (Italian: Università del Salento, called until 2007 Università degli Studi di Lecce) is a university located in Lecce, Italy. It was founded in 1955 and is organized in 10 Faculties.

The University of Salento commenced activities in the academic year 1955-56 under the “Salentine University Council”. In 1960 it became the “Free University of Lecce” and passed to Government authority in the 1967/68 academic year.
Since 2005, the University of Salento has been a partner of the Euro-Mediterranean Center for Climate Change (CMCC).

Lecce, Italy

Travel Information

Travel to Lecce:

  • By train from Rome or Milan. Take a Eurostar(EC) or Intercity(IC) train; overnight trains are equipped with sleeping accommodations, couchettes or beds. It takes about 6 hours to reach Lecce from Rome and 10 hours from Milan by train.Note: practically all train timetables in Italy (with the exception of some local companies) are available at the website http://www.trenitalia.it/(also in English) with online booking.
  • By a plane to Bari from the most central Italian hubs (Rome Fiumicino, Milan Malpensa, Milan Linate) and also from a number of foreign airports. The airport’s web address is http://www.seap-puglia.it/. After arriving to Bari, you will need to take a public bus to the Bari train station and then travel to Lecce by train.
  • Travel to Brindisi:
  • The plane to Brindisi is preferable. You may fly to Brindisi from the Italian airports of Rome Fiumicino, Milan Malpensa, Milan Linate. The website of the airport is http://www.seap-puglia.it/.
  • Arrivals to Brindisi (13 October 2015 or a day before for participants who will attend the conference only). Outside Brindisi airport, there is a public bus going to Lecce. The schedule can be found here. However, we stress that such a timetable is going to change, so you have to check the timetable of flights to/from Brindisi. The ticket can be bought at the newspapers kiosk inside the airport. The bus is grey and green, with the `SITA’ logo, and usually leaves on the right of the main exit of the airport.

Then one can reach Lecce train station by taxi. The average fare for the trip Lecce Airport City Terminal – Lecce Train Station should be about 10 EURs. If the office of the Airport City Terminal is open, you may ask the employees to call a taxi for you. Otherwise, you may call it yourself (but you could be answered by people who does not speak English) at one of the following numbers: 0832 332857, EUROMED service (works 24/7); 0832 247978 (Train station taxis). Public phones could be found in the square in front of the Airport city terminal about 1EUR/run.

When you arrive at the train station, you may store your luggage at the baggage store area in the train station and visit the historical center of Lecce which is 10 minutes walking from the train station. Just go straight ahead from the main entrance of the train station and after 500m, you will be in the old center.

Other means of travel

  • By plane and train: it is possible to combine plane and train trips which could be a convenient alternative if you plan to visit other parts of Italy. There are day and night trains from Rome and Milan every day, please refer tohttp://www.trenitalia.it/. Moreover, especially from Europe, many low cost companies have scheduled flights to smaller Italian airports such as Forlí and Pescara, from which a train is the most practical mode of transportation to reach Lecce.
  • By car from Bari (150Km), via a freeway. Just follow the signs to Brindisi-Lecce. Rental cars are available in the main Italian airports, including the airports of Brindisi and Bari. This could be a good idea if you wish to join a visit of the South of Italy to the conference.
Visa Application

For participants who need Entry Visas, IEREK will issue a visa letter by Salento University for applicants who are accepted to present at our conferences.

Please notice that we will endeavor to assist you in obtaining a visa but the responsibility is yours and the decision rests solely with the appropriate Embassy.

However, you are required to prepare your papers according to the regulations of your country’s embassy/consulate. To do this, you will need to visit the embassy/consulate website or by contacting them.
