NPRA, Chalmers and NIVA organise UES on 1st-3rd June 2015

28th February 2015 is abstract deadline for Urban Environment Symposium in Oslo, Norway.


FEHRL member Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA), together with the Chalmers University of Technology and Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA), are organising the 2th Urban Environment Symposium (www.hues.sein Oslo, Norway on June 1st-3rd 2015.

The Urban Environment Symposium is a forum for recent research on all aspects of the urban environment. The first symposium was held in London in 1983 as a meeting place for researchers with a focus on urban pollution. Since then, there has been a growing interest for including other aspects of the urban environment to provide a more extensive cover of this research area. Topics at recent symposia in Gothenburg in 2010 and in Karlsruhe in 2012 included environmental pollution, urban management, climate change, contaminated sites, transportation and mobility. Continuing this tradition, the upcoming 12th Urban Environment Symposium will cover a broad range of topics related to the urban environment

Abstract submissions for oral or poster presentations are welcome on any of the following topics:
  • Environmental Pollution (air, soil, water, noise) and health
  • Biodiversity and Ecosystem services
  • Climate change and Adaptation
  • Modelling of Urban Systems
  • Urban Management
  • Urbanisation in the developing world
  • Future roads

Authors wishing to present papers are invited to submit an abstract by February 28th 2015. Please note that abstracts must be short (less than 300 words, no figures or tables) and should be submitted via the conference website (submission will be available soon).
