Sustainable urban regeneration is crucial for the development of the urban environments of the future. However, the sustained success of urban regeneration can only be accomplished through integrating smart technologies and sustainable solutions.
As advancements in technology continue to transform the way we live, work, and interact with our environment, Urban regeneration holds promise to increase the quality of urban life and the well-being of its residents. It can also provide a critical basis for developing future urbanism, where smart technologies and sustainable solutions will be integrated into every aspect of city life.
Urban regeneration is a rehabilitation strategy that aims to transform and upgrade land areas to achieve complete economic and regional development, leading to improved urban performance and targeting areas with high rates of poverty, pollution, and congestion.
The upcoming 5th edition of Urban Regeneration and Sustainability will discuss the low-carbon future through the integration of renewable energy technologies, such as solar, wind, and hydropower, in order to contribute to the long-term sustainability of urban areas and improve the quality of life for residents.
The current research discusses topics related to sustainable urbanism and urban regeneration, in terms of the principles, ideas, and theory of sustainable urbanism and the preservation and conservation of historic buildings in urban regeneration, focusing on developing principles, strategies, and innovative models for sustainable urbanism and urban regeneration. It also highlights the importance of sustainable infrastructure and mitigating climate change to create livable and resilient cities.
The conference will stimulate discussion concerning the topic of the effective integration of sustainable practices with urban solutions. The conference addresses multiple facets of technological implementation in urban planning design, discussing the effectiveness of developing a healthy, resilient, and resource-efficient future that provides a better quality of life for all citizens. URS aims to deliberate upon a wide array of topics, including enhancing the livability of urban environments from a multidisciplinary approach.
Statement of Purpose

Each paper/ chapter is evaluated by a minimum of two reviewers, after which a final decision by the responsible Editor is made. There is no maximum to the number of times a paper can be reviewed, depending on the quality of the submission.
If your short paper is accepted by the Editors for publishing with comments/ requested modifications, our Editors (publishing department) will contact you once a decision is made and you will be asked to revise and correct it. After resubmission, it will be re-checked. Note: There may be more than one round of peer review and the decision rests with the editors of the title. Missed deadlines may result in complete exclusion/ rejection from the final publication.
If your short paper is accepted for publishing without edits/ comments, the corresponding author will be contacted to provide the final version of their chapters/ papers following Springer Guidelines and sign the Springer consent-to-publish (CTP) form to authorize publication in the conference proceedings.
A back-and-forth process: modifications will be sent back to the responsible Editor/ Series Editor and another round of evaluation conducted where needed. Participants/ Authors should regularly check their emails (Junk/ Spam folders).
If you are not interested in publishing an extended abstract in the proceedings in ASTI by Springer Nature, please inform the conference support ([email protected]).
