An international symposium to be held in Dresden from 11 to 13 November 2015 will address the recent trends in spatial analysis and modelling of settlements and infrastructure and their benefit for a sustainable land use. Suggested topics for presentation should be submitted by 15 June.
The “International Land Use Symposium (ILUS) 2015” organised by the Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER) will be held in Dresden from 11 to 13 November 2015. It is financially supported by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG).
In particular, the interdisciplinary meeting will examine new ideas in overlapping fields of studies with the goal of advancing our understanding of built-up areas, and how recent developments in spatial analysis and modelling can lead to sustainable resource management, better support of planning and urban and regional development, enhanced spatial information and knowledge, and optimized strategies, instruments and tools.
The call for abstracts has been published on the symposium website (www.ioer.de/ilus2015), where suggested topics for English-language presentations can be submitted until 15 June. Early-stage researchers are also encouraged to contribute. Selected contributions will be published in a special issue.
The International Symposium brings together leading academics and interested attendees for presentation, discussion, and collaborative networking in the fields of spatial sciences, environmental studies, geography, cartography, GIScience, urban planning, architecture, which relate to investigations of settlements and infrastructure.
Keynote addresses will be held by internationally renowned scientists in the field of spatial analysis such as Denise Pumain from the Panthéon-Sorbonne University in Paris/France, Harvey J. Miller from the Ohio State University in Columbus/USA, Itzhak Benenson from the Tel-Aviv University/Israel as well as Bin Jiang from the University of Gävle/Sweden.

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.
