Introduction

About the URS 3rd Edition:

Urban regeneration has only proven to be successful when sustained which is why urban regeneration and the concept of sustainability go perfectly hand in hand. The populations within the earth inhabit more and more areas every day which is why urbanization still grows to be a challenge. The problems that are most commonly associated with urbanization are often high-density population, pollution, crime, poverty, inadequate infrastructure, and several others. Having a high population density is the cornerstone of the entire existence of this argument, some might say, which is partly true, as populations increase more than ever and with more inhabitants, who mostly migrate from rural areas.

Following the success of the 1st Edition and 2nd Edition international conference on “Urban Regeneration and Sustainability”, this year's 3rd edition will address all the aspects of the urban environment. Urban regeneration is discussed thoroughly in this conference, by rendering it as a process and a strategy that aims to transform and renovate areas in hopes of upgrading public housing, public buildings, private buildings, infrastructure, and services. It could also be considered as a highly effective way to improve urban performance by targeting countless areas and taking their economic levels and developments into consideration which could affect society either negatively or positively.

The level of difficulty to manage such problems with established solutions in several cities that differ from one city to another, depending mainly on the city's size, morphology, regulations, and several other factors. The bigger the city the more complex it becomes to manage it, requiring more solutions that will help in the regeneration of urban areas and to limit the negative impacts from and on anyone associated with the city.

Such challenges cannot be easily or entirely handled, although a city can become a much more efficient habitat by conserving resources in an attempt to minimize the communal effects caused by their consumption and depletion. The entirety of the solutions will be discussed throughout the conference research papers.

In this regard, IEREK is organizing this conference In collaboration with the University of East London to help establish better and more efficient solutions and plans to help solve such rapidly growing challenges within countless numbers of cities around the world by viewing different aspects and solutions that are offered and discussed throughout the conference.

This conference also provides a context for a general debate between the researchers and the audience to help everyone understand the importance of addressing the challenges that have been recently increased with the rapid growth of urbanization and how to solve them efficiently.

After the conference, the submitted manuscripts of authors interested in publishing in the ASTI book series will undergo a rigorous peer review process resulting in a final decision made by the editors. Only accepted research will be published as a chapter in the Book Series entitled “Advances in Science, Technology and Innovation” (ASTI) by Springer. The ASTI Book Series is by managed highly professional members of an International Editorial Board to ensure high-quality material for online publication.

The ASTI Book Series is fully indexed in Scopus. Some titles have been successfully indexed or submitted for indexation in Web of Science (ISI).

About the ASTI series

Advances in Science, Technology & Innovation (ASTI) is a series of peer-reviewed books based on important emerging research that redefines the current disciplinary boundaries in science, technology and innovation (STI) in order to develop integrated concepts for sustainable development. It not only discusses the progress made towards securing more resources, allocating smarter solutions, and rebalancing the relationship between nature and people, but also provides in-depth insights from comprehensive research that addresses the 17 sustainable development goals (SDGs) as set out by the UN for 2030.

The series draws on the best research papers from various IEREK and other international conferences to promote the creation and development of viable solutions for a sustainable future and a positive societal transformation with the help of integrated and innovative science-based approaches. Including interdisciplinary contributions, it presents innovative approaches and highlights how they can best support both economic and sustainable development, through better use of data, more effective institutions, and global, local and individual action, for the welfare of all societies.

The series particularly features conceptual and empirical contributions from various interrelated fields of science, technology and innovation, with an emphasis on digital transformation, that focus on providing practical solutions to ensure food, water and energy security to achieve the SDGs. It also presents new case studies offering concrete examples of how to resolve sustainable urbanization and environmental issues in different regions of the world.

The series is intended for professionals in research and teaching, consultancies and industry, and government and international organizations. Published in collaboration with IEREK, the Springer ASTI series will acquaint readers with essential new studies in STI for sustainable development.
