Welcome to Our Conference!
The First International Conference of Sustainable Architecture and Urban Planning (ICSAUP):
The First International Conference of Sustainable Architecture and Urban Planning aims to provide a platform for architects, planners, and other built environment professionals to present and debate ideas, experiences and innovation under the banner of sustainable development and one planet living. ICSAUP 2015 will offer a platform for sharing intelligence on what works and what does not by bringing together academics and practitioners from around the world.
Paper and submissions are invited that address the constraints and barriers affecting the implementation of sustainability in Jordan and the Arab World capturing material relevant to policy-making, practice and academia. The Conference will also stimulate solution-oriented practical methods for implementing sustainability and motivate more ideas and useful insights for future practice regarding architecture and urban planning within the context of sustainability in the Arab region and elsewhere. This will be done through a series of roundtables and hands on workshops led by practitioners and policy-makers.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Sustainability: from theory to implementation.
