About the UTSN 3rd Edition:

“Offering now a series of online conferences designed for researchers who are interested in taking part in constructive and informative discussions, IEREK has eliminated the reoccurring obstacle that is costly travel. This online conference will promote participation of a wide audience from different parts of the globe, accessibility, convenience and long-term availability of the proceedings.”

Over the years, the topic of sustainable development has been gaining momentum. One of the major contributors to sustainable urban development is the complex system of urban public transportation. This system can be divided into 3 sections: society, economy, and environment. Balancing all three sectors is one way to contribute towards sustainable development through assessing and improving the role of transportation systems.

Ideally, the process starts with an analysis of the topological structure of transportation networks and an exploration of its spatial structure, to achieve sustainability through the mitigation of congestion and using sustainable materials in construction. Moreover, diverse and newly emerging strategies are continuously being explored when it comes to vehicle technology improvement, clean fuels, promotion of public transportation and transportation planning. With various approaches, topics and case studies discussed, the role of transit in communities is made clearer from economic development and integrative perspective and solutions are produced that support the transformation of cities and reduction in negative impacts on the city.

This video conference is used as a tool that helps in exchanging the knowledge currently circulating the globe to enhance research on the topic. It is an invitation to architects, environmentalists, engineers, and university students to contribute to an increase in awareness on the importance of developing sustainable urban cities as well as discuss the most recent innovations in the field. It is an attempt to facilitate an interaction between academic and practical perspectives where theories and ideas from different cities are debated.

  • Publication: The conference proceedings will be published by one of IEREK Press'Journals "ARChive". High-quality manuscripts, based on scientific committee evaluation, will get the chance to be published in the ASTI book series by "Springer".
  • Academic Reputation: Joining many conferences will make you a known figure in academic circles, not to mention the benefits for your C.V as it will show that you are an active member of the academic community.
  • Research Technologies: 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.
  • Save Time: Reduced commuting time is one of the most obvious but significant benefits of online video conferencing. The hassle of travel and attending conference in another country can take up valuable days and hours which can be avoided through video conferences.
  • Save Money: Budgets are always stretched to breaking point in the academic arena, and so the time and money saved through the use of this technology is a massive driver to efficiency and new research possibilities; it makes some projects that would otherwise be impossible, possible.
