September 30, 2020 - Mannheim, GERMANY

9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns

The world is facing major environmental, economic and social challenges that require a substantial transformation in all aspects of society. By now, societal awareness and a sense of urgency for action on climate change, loss of biodiversity and global resource depletion are widespread. However, implementation of the transformation we need has been sluggish – hampered at global level by zero-sum politics and vested interest economics. Simply put, our current, exclusively growth-based system is not fit for a sustainable future. Our behaviour is contradictory, we want to overcome these challenges, but only few seem willing to go against established routines. We need courageous leadership, who take responsibility to overcome this contradiction.

The vast majority of the world’s population live in urban areas, with 75% of global CO2 emission attributable to cities. As such, local and regional leaders must assume their crucial roles in meeting global goals, while offering a home to their citizens. But the responsibility for collective health and well-being lies not just with local leaders. It lies with decision makers at all levels of government. It lies with the European institutions, business, academia, the research community and last but not least with citizens . We have to change systems, value chains, habits, processes and ourselves.

In 2020, all those that can make change happen will gather at the Mannheim2020 conference. Become part of the transformation and join mayors, local government practitioners, civil society and all other urban stakeholders, business, national governments and European institutions, and help us transform Europe for a secure and sustainable future.

All Ireland Smart Cities Forum Fourth Annual Conference – Building a Responsive and Resilient City in Post Crisis

Covid-19 has completely changed how organisations around the world, including local government, deliver their services. 2020 is being defined by the need for new service delivery models to be designed and rolled-out in a leaner and smarter way. In this evolving narrative, and the global recession that will certainly follow, hard decisions will have to be made on what services get prioritised. We are undoubtedly (re)imagining the future city.

This half-day conference will examine how cities/local government across the island of Ireland responded to the challenges of Covid-19; in terms of how service delivery had to adapt, the role digital played in supporting this adjustment, and how these experiences will assist cities, and local government, in building responsive and resilient cities post-crisis.

This 2.5 hour event will run from 14.00 – 16.30; with participation free of charge. In particular, the half-day event will focus on:

  • Reimagining the High Street;
  • Transforming Tourism;
  • Disrupting Mobility; and
  • Supporting Communities

Join the mobility service providers, automakers and data platform providers, cities and public transit operators to build the partnerships that will deliver sustainable mobility and create a long-term business model for its stakeholders.

Future Smart Cities (FSC) - 3rd Edition

IEREK is organizing the 3rd international conference on "Future Smart Cities" in collaboration with Xiamen University Malaysia, where the city has a promising potential of transformation to be smarter. In light of the #COVID19 pandemic, the conference will be hosted online.

A huge number of researchers and stakeholders are interested to discuss how building smart cities foster sustainability and what are the challenges and concerns that should be considered while investing in the services and infrastructure supporting the city to be more livable.

The term ‘smart city’ is given to a city that integrates both information and communication technologies (ICT) in order to boost the quality and performance of urban services which include energy, transportation and utilities. Hence, reducing resource consumption, wastage, and overall costs in general. To sum it up, the main aim of a smart city is to enhance the quality of living for its citizens through smart technology. Proposals and researches, therefore, are requested to discuss the new proposals of future cities, as well as the transformation of our cities to be in the scope.

Decision-makers, citizens, researchers, universities, companies and planners are all invited to discuss this theme further and to maximize the benefits of the conference and get a successful proposal to the future smart city.

Selected papers from this conference will be published in a Book Series "Advances in Science, Technology and Innovation" (ASTI) by Springer or in The International Journal of Proceedings of Science and Technology (Resourceedings) online by IEREK Press.

Smart Buildings Show 2021

Smart Buildings Show connects visitors to the latest information and technology in the smart buildings industry.

We will give visitors the information they need to arrive at an informed decision on how to make their intelligent buildings more economic for owners and more functional for occupiers. Smart Buildings Show will take place at ExCeL, London on 6-7 October 2021. Smart buildings deliver services that make occupants productive at the lowest cost and environmental impact over the building lifecycle. To do this requires adding intelligence from the design phase through to the end of the building's useful life. Smart buildings use information technology during operation to connect subsystems, which typically operate independently, so that these systems can share information to optimise total building performance.

Smart Buildings Show 2021 will cover all key aspects of creating and managing a smart building, including:

  • Building automation systems
  • Energy efficiency
  • Lighting and controls
  • Security
  • HVAC
  • Smart meters and monitoring
  • Networks and wireless
  • Software
  • Services and support
  • Building automation and design
  • Building energy management
  • Regulations and consultancy
  • Workplace and wellbeing
