We are at a critical point in humanity’s journey. Numerous challenges present themselves, most notably, the rising threat of climate change that looms on the horizon, threatening the continuation of humanity and other species across the globe, and jeopardizing the preservation of coastal cities. Climate change is merely the symptom, however, not the cause, and if we are to surpass this monumental challenge, we must trace back to the factors that led us down this path.
Technological advancement has always been humanity’s forte, it has aided us throughout historical and modern times alike. We have focused so narrowly on technological advancement, however, that we turned a blind eye to the rising cost of an unsustainable approach. Additionally, our reliance on fossil fuels and non-renewable sources of energy to power our cities further contributes to the emission of greenhouse gases and the monumental challenge of climate change, which threatens to melt polar ice glaciers, and devastate coastal cities globally.
These consequences bring forth a dire need to allocate renewable, efficient, and affordable forms of energy, promote sustainable, healthy, and diverse ecosystems, and support enabling technologies that can offer promising solutions. An overhaul is required to our approach towards cities, a sustainable design will ensure the continuation and well-being of cities’ inhabitants, and humans around the world. A green approach towards urbanism that facilitates accessible public transport, and prioritizes energy, water & food security for its inhabitants, and regenerates compact fabric areas. An innovative approach towards materials that emphasizes sustainable construction, and a durable, eco-friendly design that ensures the resiliency of cities and the constructions within them.
Addressing these pressing challenges, and looking towards future sustainability, IEREK announces the first “Advances in Energy Research, Materials Science & Built Environment” conference, through which, discourse across multiple disciplines such as architectural development, green urbanism, modern construction management practices, and material efficacy in climate change mitigation, will investigate research on sustainability and development. Implementing these techniques will lead to achieving efficient, renewable, affordable, and inclusive green growth to accomplish the now urgent developmental needs of countries, and bring about a level of prosperity, and a better managed and robust environment.
With much theoretical and empirical knowledge to draw on in recent years, this conference aims to stimulate a discussion, in the form of submitted contributions and delivered presentations, surrounding the following main topics: (1) Climate Change: Challenges, Risks, and Solutions, (2) Green Urbanism’s Role in Resilient Communities and Environmental Efficiency, (3) Opportunities and Challenges in Coastal Areas, (4) Evolving Architecture and Rethinking City's Image and Preservation, (5) Materials for Renewable and Sustainable Energy, (6) The Role of Advanced Technologies in Sustainable Architecture, (7) Entrepreneurial Studies and Practical Applications.
The conference does not only aim to provide descriptions, proposals, and recommendations of innovations, and theoretical foundations, but also offers a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in materials for efficient and sustainable energy applications in buildings, neighborhoods, cities, and coastal zones.
It will also provide an opportunity for exploration where not only new technologies in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry are highlighted, but also a guide to practical application is made available. It offers a comprehensive approach covering fundamentals, technologies, and applications through real-world examples.
The Advances in Energy Research, Materials Science & Built Environment (EMBE) conference aims to discuss topics pertaining to urban planning, sustainable architectural design, climate change mitigation techniques, and evolutionary design. The world around us is continuously evolving, largely due to technological advancements in fields such as architectural development, engineering, and computational technology. EMBEwill host various knowledgeable keynote speakers and researchers that will deliberate on topics such as the incorporation of technology in sustainable urban planning, green urbanism, preservation of coastal areas, novel innovations in renewable materials, and responsive architecture. The conference envelops a multitude of scientific aspects of knowledge, that will lead humanity to a sustainable, greener future.
Statement of Purpose
