Events

16-18 September 2015

Sustainable Places 2015, Savona, Italy

The 2015 Edition of the Sustainable Places Event builds on two successful editions held in 2013 and 2014 in Nice. This third edition is an original initiative from the RESILIENT and PERFORMER FP7 European project consortium, aiming to generate a successful, sustainable and world-class series of annual conferences.

SP2015 aims to gather scientists, researchers, and engineers, from research institutes and the industry, around one of the greatest challenges that our societies have ever faced: ensuring long-term environmental sustainability of ever-growing, densifying urban areas, in a resource-constrained world. As usual, the Sustainable Places conference will encourage networking and clustering among the projects funded in the framework of the FP7/H2020 EeB PPP.

On this occasion, participants will have the opportunity to assess innovative initiatives, access up-to-date information, discuss market trends and envision possible synergies. Key stakeholders from the energy efficiency value chain have already expressed their interest in joining the event. An attendance of around 200 participants, coming from Europe and other regions of the world, is expected. This call for contributions invites interested parties in presenting recent results and innovative work on energy efficiency at building, district, and city levels. Contributions introducing inputs of research & innovation EU-funded projects are strongly encouraged. Four kinds of contributions are expected:

• Presentations – to be presented during lively and interactive thematic sessions.

• Papers & Presentations – 8-pages scientific papers to be presented during expert oriented technical sessions.

• Workshops – a 90′ or 180′ session to engage speakers and attendees in productive discussions and to produce specific outcomes.

• Posters – to be displayed in the exhibition area.

To submit a contribution, please fill in the application form and send it back to contributions@sustainable-places.eu not later than May 30, 2015. Authors will be informed of the decision of the Technical Programme Committee not later than June 30, 2015.
