Constructing an Urban Future: The Sustainability and Resilience of Cities

Abu Dhabi, 18-19 March 2018. This conference brings together academics from across the world around the issues of sustainability and resilience in cities. It is multi-disciplinary and invites architects, planners, engineers and urban designers. It also welcomes geographers, sociologists, urban economists, housing specialists, and more.

To stimulate critical debate about the standard practices dominating the built environment this conference is deliberately interdisciplinary. It seeks perspectives from architects, urban designers, planners, human geographers, sociologists, media specialists and more. These areas form broad strands that will be sub divided into smaller thematic sections.

To make the event as inclusive as possible, delegates can attend in-person but can also avoid travel costs by making their presentation as a pre-recorded film. It will be permanently available via the AMPS Youtube channel. Alternatively, they can present virtually via skype. In all cases, written papers are also acceptable.
