The 6th Smart and Sustainable Built Environment (SASBE) conference to be held in Sydney, Australia 4–7 December at the University of Technology Sydney. We hope to see you there!
The SASBE Conference returns to Australia where the first conference was hosted in Brisbane in 2003. In the intervening years the conference has been hosted at 3-year intervals in Shanghai, Delft, Sao Paulo, and Pretoria, providing a unique forum for cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary exchanges in the field of Smart and Sustainable Built Environments.
This conference will pay particular attention to planning, urban design, and architecture that is not only sustainable but also smart. The conference will retain its broad interest in sustainable building research and practice, while creating a special focus on two issues relevant to emerging urban initiatives: (1) smart cities and the opportunities new technologies bring to design of sustainable cities with data and the spatial performance of how the smart city manifests itself and (2) planning and design of sustainable cities under the severe constraints of climate change. These issues call for a design rather than a technological response.
