Introduction

The 4th Conference on “Urban Planning and Architectural Design for Sustainable Development” (UPADSD), follows the success of the previous meeting in 201520172018. The Concept of sustainable development has emerged over the past few decades as a new necessity for urban cities.

To be a sustainable city, it must be designed with consideration of the environmental impact – for example, decreasing traffic congestion and using sustainable materials in constructions. A commitment to sustainable architecture encompasses all phases of a building including the planning, building, and restructuring. Sustainable development is the development that meets the needs of today and doesn’t adversely affect the future generations.

Energy Department deliverance and Eco-friendly building approaches have become an important part of modern development, which office special emphasis on resource optimization.

Accelerating urbanization is not only occurring in regions where expected growth of the population is high and the number of people living in cities is relatively low, such as Asia and Africa. This trend is also happening in Europe.

This conference is aimed at architectures, environmentalists, students in universities and engineers from all around the world to increase awareness about the importance of sustainability in urban cities, and contribute and share in the event to exchange ideas and show how architecture affects the environment.

Benefits Of Attending

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, you will get an overview of the place or city where the conference is being held and learn 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. Delegates will have the choice of receiving the conference proceedings as either a hard copy book or in digital format on a USB flash drive. The USB flash drive will additionally contain proceedings from previous conferences in this series.

Indexing and Archiving Papers presented at IEREK  conferences regularly appear in notable reviews, publications, and databases, including referencing and abstract.
