Introduction

 Continuing the success of the previous meetings in 2015, 2017, and 2018, the 4th edition of the conference on "Urban Planning and Architectural Design for  Sustainable Development"(UPADSD) will be organized by IEREK in 2019 using the video conference techniques in order to optimize the benefits to the authors by improving communication which will lead to more productivity. Besides, it will decrease the expenses and save the time wasted on travel for those who aren't capable of travelling or don't have enough time.

Concerning the conference theme; and due to the great developments that occurred in science and technology and the environmental problems that are continuously rising as a result of it, the concept of sustainable development has emerged over the past few decades as a new necessity for urban cities. 

The concept of sustainable development could be illustrated as the development that meets the needs of today without adversely affecting the future generations. Particularly, developing sustainable cities means designing them to cause less harm to the environment.

While planning cities' sustainable development, it's very necessary to consider things that actually have an environmental impact. For example, decreasing traffic congestion and using sustainable materials in construction.

In this regard, sustainable architecture is a form of architecture that seeks to minimize the negative environmental influence of buildings.

Seeing that, it results in an efficient and moderate use of materials, energy, development space, and the ecosystem as a whole. Furthermore, a commitment to sustainable architecture encompasses all phases of the sustainable development of cities which includes the planning, building, and restructuring of them.

Moreover, the approach of environmental buildings that can be built and constructed using sustainable building materials is an important part of modern and sustainable development that also emphasizes on resources optimization.

As a matter of fact, the trend of accelerating urbanization is not only occurring in regions where there is a rapid growth in population in cities with small areas such as Asia and Africa. On the other hand, it is even taking place in Europe.

IEREK organizes this video conference as one of the tools that helps in exchanging knowledge and enhances the research. It is an important invitation to architects, environmentalists, engineers, and university students from all over the world aiming to increase awareness about the importance of sustainable development in urban cities. This will be done by exchanging ideas to highlight the importance of architecture and how it affects the environment.
