Conference on Managing Urban Land & Innovative Solutions for the Revitalisation of Degraded Areas

21.06.2012
Special session about Circular Flow Land Use Management „CircUse“ scheduled on the 2nd of October at the CABERNET 2012 Conference in Ustron, Poland

The “3rd International Conference on Managing Urban Land” (CABERNET 2012 Conference) in conjunction with the “6th International Conference on Innovative Solutions for Revitalisation of Degraded Areas” will be held on the 2nd - 4th of October 2012 in Ustron (Poland).

The conference is organized by the Institute for Ecology of Industrial Areas (IETU), the Research and Supervisory Centre of Underground Mining Co. Ltd (CBiDGP), the CABERNET Europe’s Sustainable Brownfield Regeneration Network and CircUse project partners. The main conference theme is “Innovative Solutions towards Circular Land Use” and combines aspects of urban land management and degraded land revitalisation. During the conference, a special session will be carried out for the CircUse project on the 2nd of October, 2012. This session will introduce the CircUse project and concept and then present on the innovative approaches of the CircUse project to implement circular land use such as the data management tool and new management structures. A software training session for the land management data tool will also be offered to attendees to take part in.

In addition to the special CircUse session, academic scholars and experts from the field will present and discuss the results of other international research projects, recent political developments, and best practice experiences.

Innovative methods and instruments towards implementing land recycling for both the public and private sectors will be presented. The conference will also focus upon future EU-cohesion policies and the European Union’s growth strategy “Europe 2020”. The CABERNET 2012 programme will cover the topics of:

• Integrated urban land management and European funding programmes
• Innovative technologies for land revitalisation
• Economic, social and environmental tools for Circular Flow Land Use Management
• Land demand for renewable energy production on brownfields
• Best practice case studies
• Training, education and professionalism

Attendees to the CABERNET 2012 Conference can expect expertly analysed information about strengthening inner city agglomerations, opportunities to restrict the consumption of new land, how to support the creation of sustainable transport systems, the preservation of industrial cultural heritage sites, as well as renaturalisation and restoration of ecological functions to brownfield sites. Central to the conference theme is the transfer of knowledge to achieve a more sustainable urban land management through identifying the opportunities brownfields in urban areas offer.

CABERNET 2012 is already accepting papers for the conference. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is the 6th of July, 2012. All entries must not exceed 2,500 characters and conform to the requirements set forth by the “Call for Abstracts” found on the CircUse webpage (www.circuse.eu). Please send your abstracts to a.pilch@ietu.katowice.pl.

The conference program, information about the conference venue, as well as a template for abstracts can all be found at: www.circuse.eu.

The project is implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme co-financed by the ERDF. The pro-gramme is funded by the Central European Program of European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
