International Land Use Symposium (ILUS) 2023 on Urban Analytics for Transforming Cities and Regions: Tools, Methods and Applications
Wed, October 04, 2023 - Fri, October 06, 2023
Center for Applied Geomatics (CAG) and Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) along with SAC, ISRO is organising the ‘International Land Use Symposium (ILUS) 2023’ on ‘Urban Analytics for Transforming Cities and Regions: Tools, Methods and Applications' from October 4 - October 6, 2023, in Ahmedabad, India.
The symposium encourages original contributions with the goal of advancing knowledge on urban dynamics towards sustainability in the Global South and Global North. The increasing availability of open geodata through infrastructures and tools changes our view on cities as built and social systems. While global settlement analysis methods evolve, fine-grained, in-depth approaches arise better to understand urban livelihoods on the neighbourhood to city level. What unites tools and methods is their potential for a better understanding of processes and causes of global phenomena such as rapid urban growth, densification or suburbanisation in order to identify and promote trajectories of sustainable urbanisation. New conceptual approaches are highly needed to measure and assess spatial processes. We, therefore, encourage interdisciplinary contributions showing the heterogeneous applicability of urban analytics, particularly geospatial data, analysis, modelling and simulation for a transition towards sustainable urban and regional systems. Contributions may be theoretical, methodological, or applied in nature.
The research should address the following topics:
Urban dynamics: Global perspectives on the structures and dynamics of cities, trajectories of cities towards sustainability, urban models for urban transformation, urban sprawl, densification, suburbanization, cities as complex systems, urban spatial networks and accessibility, and spatiotemporal big data.
Resilient urban and regional systems: Urban planning and climate change adaptation, land policies, green and blue infrastructures, energy transition, renewable energies, energy efficiency, and socio-spatial inequalities.
Open data in planning and urban management: open data portals, geodata infrastructures, governmental open data initiatives, co-production of geodata, citizen science, participatory approaches, data literacy in urban planning
Big Data Analytics and Land Use: This topic contains contributions whose topical focus is related to use of big data, AI, Machine learning and modeling for Land use Science & urban ecosystem.
We look forward to your participation and contributions!
