21st century saw remarkable progress in science and technology and also it started to witness the fury of climate change. While improving urban quality of life is one of the major challenges under growing stress and adversities; technologies, pro-environmental behaviour and inclusivity might be way forward. Several policy initiatives have been undertaken by global agencies, governments to mitigate local and global challenges. Under these circumstances, the 1st International Conference on Urban Science and Engineering might provide the milieu of urban planning while applying technology that would ensure better urban life, while considering the sensitiveness of depleting natural resources and earmarking way forward towards sustainable development.
The conference provides an excellent platform to know, exchange new ideas, and understand the challenges related to the urban sector at large. We are certain that ICUSE 2020 would be exciting and would continue the tradition of immense scientific discussion.
The Centre for Urban Science & Engineering (CUSE) at IIT Bombay is an interdisciplinary centre for research, teaching and skilled manpower development with the primary mandate of improving urban quality of life. The Centre aims to combine science and technology with sustainable, equitable and human-friendly design to deliver innovative and holistic services to improve the life of the rapidly urbanizing population in the developing world.
The research activities of the Centre focus on new products and solutions related to housing, transport, water management, energy efficiency, urban informatics, health, governance, urban poverty and citizen science while mitigating the effects of natural disasters and climate change.
Abstracts are invited on the following themes. Submissions are welcome in any research topics related to urban science and engineering.A. Sustainable infrastructure, mobility and planning
For all above themes, the paper may be focused on methodology, use of technology, policy and governance, data informatics, social and economic aspects.
