International Land Use Symposium ILUS 2023 on transforming cities and regions

How can spatial data and spatial analysis support the transition to sustainability? This question is the focus of the 4th International Land Use Symposium ILUS 2023, which will take place in Ahmedabad, India, from 4 to 6 October 2023. ILUS2023 will address tools, methods and application for transforming cities and regions. Registration is possible until 10 September 2023.

Under the umbrella “Urban Analytics for Transforming Cities and Regions”, ILUS 2023 is dedicated to give answers to the question how interdisciplinary concepts in spatial analysis and data modelling can contribute and support sustainable urban and regional development. To this end, the symposium covers the major topics: Urban Dynamics, Resilient urban and regional systems and Open data in planning and urban management.

The symposium will be opened with contributions of renowned international scientists in the area of spatial analysis and spatial planning. The keynote speakers will include Dr Filip Biljecki, National University of Singapore (NUS), Professor Erik Johnston and Dr Margaret M. Hinrichs from Arizona State University, as well as Andreas von Dömming, Federal Agency for Cartography and Geodesy, Germany.
