Urban Regeneration is the Rehabilitation of land areas that are subject to high-density Urban Land use. It is a strategy that aims to transform and renovate areas to be upgraded in Housing, Public and Private Buildings, Infrastructure, and Services. This entire process is an effective way to improve urban performance by targeting areas with a high incidence of poverty, pollution, and congestion, leading to a complete Economic and Regional Development of the area.

Urban Regeneration Program is only proven to be successful when sustained. This program largely impacted many Urban Landscapes and Affected The History and Demographics of Cities Around the World. As a result of its successes, Urban Regeneration is now known as the attempt to reverse declining cities by improving physical structures through new urbanization models and more importantly, enhancing the economy of those cities.

These New Urbanization Models must be highly enduring systems that prove Sustainability,

which is reached by covering all aspects of the four interconnected domains: Ecology, Economics, Politics, and Culture.

Today, the process of urbanization still continues to generate many problems deriving from the drift of the population towards highly populated cities. These problems can be resolved by cities becoming efficient habitats, saving resources in a way that improves the quality and standard of living. The process, however, faces a number of major challenges, related to reducing pollution, improving main transportation and infrastructure systems.

New Urban Solutions are required to optimize the use of space and energy resources leading to improvements in the environment, i.e. reduction in air, water and soil pollution as well as efficient ways to deal with waste generation. These challenges contribute to the development of social and economic imbalances and require the development of new solutions.

Large cities are probably the most complex mechanisms to manage. However, despite such complexity, they represent a fertile ground for ArchitectsEngineers, City Planners, Social and Political Scientists, and other professionals able to conceive new ideas and time them according to technological advances and human requirements.

Participation Procedure

Once an abstract is submitted, it will be sent to the reviewers committee to go through the revision process as follows:

Elementary Review
Once an abstract has been submitted to our website, it is assigned for review by the reviewers using the abstract review sheet and validation of publication. This is based on four criteria:

Accepted for publication (with minor editing changes).

Conditionally accepted for publication (with revisions provided to authors).

Rejected but encouraged for re-submission with major modifications.

Rejected as inappropriate or unworthy of publication in this certain conference.

Asbtract Acceptance
Authors will receive the feedback of the scientific committee. If an author receives the acceptance of his or her abstract, he/she is encouraged to submit the full-length paper using the requested templates.

Uploading your Full-Length Paper
Authors who are allowed to upload their full-length paper(s) should use the same account details to upload their full paper(s).

Second Acceptance
Once your paper has been checked to meet the conference standards and once it has passed its preliminary revision, you will be requested to complete payment necessary for its final revision phase.

Final Approval 
Final inspection is composed of a rigorous revision process of submitted full papers according to the following criteria:

(1) Is the topic relevant to the conference?

(2) Is the writing and structure clear?

(3) Are graphics, photos, illustrations used where needed?

(4) Are the aims of the study clearly stated?

(5) Are the objectives of the study achieved?

(6) Is the literature review relevant and adequate?

(7) Has the author used an appropriate methodology and has it been clearly explained?

(8) Has the author interpreted the findings correctly?

(9) Is the paper a significant contribution to the field?




The conference proceedings will be published in full in the “ARChive” International Journal of Science. Publication in the "Springer" will only be applicable to the selected papers that will be supervised by highly professional members of an International Editorial Board to ensure a high-quality publication material. Thus, such outstanding material will lead to the indexing of the series in well-known indexing databases such as 'Scopus' and 'Thomson Reuters'.

For the selected papers to be published in "Springer", another revision process will be added to the selected manuscripts.


Author's Instruction

Abstracts should clearly state the purpose, results, and conclusions of the work to be described in the final paper.
A maximum of a 300-word abstract is to be reviewed.

After you have received the acceptance of your abstract, please continue to write your full paper with the requested template.

Plagiarism Policy

IEREK has an unyielding policy regarding plagiarism. We believe that copying/taking the ideas and work of other Authors without permission and credit, is fraudulent.

The Reviewing committee and IEREK employees have the authority to reject a paper during its reviewing process,  on the basis of the paper being subjected to either minor or major plagiarism. Duplicating any content, even if it is one sentence or one table without the consent of its original Author, will lead to the paper’s refusal upon the complaint of the plagiarism victim.
Visa Application

For participants who need Entry Visas, IEREK will issue a visa letter by University of East London for applicants who are accepted to present at our conferences.

Please notice that we will endeavor to assist you in obtaining a visa but the responsibility is yours and the decision rests solely with the appropriate Embassy.

However, you are required to prepare your papers according to the regulations of your country’s embassy/consulate. To do this, you will need to visit the embassy/consulate website or by contacting them.

In case of any missing document during the appointment or any other unfortunate incident that leads to your rejection, IEREK clears its responsibility as we will have done our part in providing the documents we can provide to ease the process.
Benefits Of Attending

Since conferences are the places where new science results are typically first presented, attending conferences organized by IEREK can be very rewarding for the following reasons:


1. Open Discussions: 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.

2. Venue: Getting an overview of the place or city where the conference is being held and learning about its people and culture.

3. Research Technologies: 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.

4. Networking: Conferences help in networking which often increases your chances of collaboration in future projects.

5. Academic Reputation: Attending many conferences will make you a known figure in academic circles, not to mention the benefits for your C.V as it will create an impression that you are an active member of the academic community.

6. Conference Proceedings Material: Delegates will have the choice of receiving the conference proceedings as either a hard cover book or in digital format on a USB flash drive. The USB flash drive will additionally contain proceedings from previous conferences in this series.

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

8. IEREK Press: All conference papers are archived online in the IEREK Journal while journal participants can attend after the conference to submit an enhanced version of their research for possible publication at our online journal.
