A series of annual symposia for discussing applied urban simulation models that offer insights into complex dynamics of urban change and inform practical initiatives. Since its launch of the AUM series in 2011, the symposia have attracted delegates from diverse disciplines, universities, professional institutions and government agencies in many countries.
The theme of AUM2104 is ‘planning urban infrastructure'. Urban infrastructure in this context is defined as physical structures and engineering works in the city regions for transport, energy, water, waste water, solid waste disposal, telecommunications and wider information flows, green spaces as well as the building stock. Demographic changes, urbanisation, aspirations for resource and environmental sustainability and post-recession economic stimulus have triggered a surge in urban infrastructure investment in many countries. Because of its durability, urban infrastructure has a critical role to play in shaping the urban futures; it has also posed challenging new and urgent questions for applied urban modelling.
The Organising Committee of AUM2014 is led by Ying Jin, Steve Denman and Claudio Martani.
Call for submissions: the deadline for abstracts is 15 February 2014.
