With the ever-increasing urbanization and the complex challenges faced by cities worldwide, the need for sustainable and resilient urban development has become paramount. 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.

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, 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.

The 5th International Conference on “Urban Regeneration and Sustainability aims to address these challenges through in-depth discussions, presentations, and workshops focused on the latest trends, best practices, and innovative research in the field.

This edition will focus on various aspects of urban regeneration and sustainability, exploring the latest trends, best practices, and cutting-edge research in the field. The 5th International Conference on Urban Regeneration and Sustainability will encompass a wide range of topics, including but not limited to; Sustainable urban planning and design; Smart cities and digital technologies for urban development; Resilient urban infrastructure and transportation systems; Urban ecology and biodiversity conservation; Social and economic aspects of urban regeneration; Historic preservation and cultural heritage in urban contexts; Climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies in cities; Urban governance and policy-making for sustainable development; Participatory approaches in urban regeneration projects; Sustainable construction and building materials and other topics related to sustainable urbanism and urban regeneration.

Here at IEREK, we pride ourselves in our mission of knowledge enrichment, and propagation, as well as empowering academics across the globe. Thus, we are thrilled to announce the 5th international conference on “Urban Regeneration and Sustainability”.

Conference Scope

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

The conference on Urban Regeneration and Sustainability aims to empower technological utilization within urban environments to enrich the lives of residents, raise efficiency in multiple infrastructural fields of society, as well as uplift deteriorating urban areas while ensuring environmental safety.

The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers, scholars, practitioners, and stakeholders to deliberate on the sustainable approach to multiple facets of society and lifestyle, including governance, entrepreneurship, transportation, logistics, communication, infrastructure, and construction.

About ASTI

Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation (ASTI) is a series of peer-reviewed books based on important emerging research that redefines the current disciplinary boundaries in science, technology and innovation (STI) in order to develop integrated concepts for sustainable development. It not only discusses the progress made towards securing more resources, allocating smarter solutions, and rebalancing the relationship between nature and people, but also provides in-depth insights from comprehensive research that addresses the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) as set out by the UN for 2030.

The series draws on the best research papers from various IEREK and other international conferences to promote the creation and development of viable solutions for a sustainable future and a positive societal transformation with the help of integrated and innovative science-based approaches. Including interdisciplinary contributions, it presents innovative approaches and highlights how they can best support both economic and sustainable development, through better use of data, more effective institutions, and global, local and individual action, for the welfare of all societies. The series particularly features conceptual and empirical contributions from various interrelated fields of science, technology and innovation, with an emphasis on digital transformation, that focus on providing practical solutions to ensure food, water and energy security to achieve the SDGs. It also presents new case studies offering concrete examples of how to resolve sustainable urbanization and environmental issues in different regions of the world. Read More.

The ASTI series is fully indexed in Scopus and any chapter/ paper published as part of this series will be seen on the Scopus database. Some titles have been successfully indexed or submitted for indexation in Web of Science (ISI).

  • 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]).

Step 4: Extended paper 

  • After the conference, the authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their research, 8 – 12+ pages in length, (optional) of their short papers for publishing in an edited volume to be published by Springer Nature.
  • Publishing your short paper (i.e., extended abstract) in the conference proceedings does not prevent the submission of the full version for publishing consideration after the conference if the similarity percentages (SR%) in Step 3 are taken into account.
