Climate Resilient Cities and Infrastructures 2018

Final conference of the RESIN project, co-organised by the RESCCUE project
9 October 2018, 08:30 - 18:00
Brussels, Belgium
Le Bouche à Oreille, Rue Félix Hap 11, 1040 Etterbeek

Climate Resilient Cities and Infrastructures 2018 will explore the latest advances in research and practice addressing climate change and resilience in cities, including issues of risk and vulnerability assessment, adaptation pathways, optioneering for financing adaptation, and how to successfully integrate multiple departments and stakeholders from across the city community as part of a holistic adaptation planning and implementation process.

The event will focus on the experiences of the RESIN cities as users of the tools and methodologies that the project has produced. Beyond theoretical presentations, the event will include real application of the tools by cities to build partnerships and seek support from one another and from the research community to empower them to implement climate adaptation action. The policy messages of the cities of Bilbao, Bratislava, Greater Manchester and Paris for adaptation action will be discussed and future pathways for research and practical work in this field explored.

Speakers will include Aleksandra Kazmierczak (European Environment Agency), Roger Street (Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford), Pier Vellinga (Professor of Climate Change, University of Wageningen), UN-Habitat (speaker name TBC), Peter Bosch (RESIN project coordinator, TNO), Dr Jeremy Carter (Co-Director of the Centre for Urban Resilience and Energy at the University of Manchester), Ingrid Konrad (Chief Architect, City of Bratislava),  and Pere Malgrat (Aquatec (SUEZ Advanced Solutions)). 

Speakers from European-funded projects RESIN, RESCCUE, EU-CIRCLE and BRIGAID will provide a comprehensive insight into the state of the art in climate adaptation, critical infrastructure resilience and urban resilience in Europe.

Participation in the conference is free of charge and it will be followed by a social event. The Climate Resilient Cities and Infrastructures conference is organised by the European Horizon 2020-funded RESIN project and is co-organised by the RESCCUE project.

Thirteenth International Conference on Critical Information Infrastructures Security (CRITIS)

24 - 26 September 2018
Kaunas, Lithuania

In 2018, the 13th edition of the International Conference on Critical Information Infrastructures Security will be held in Kaunas, Lithuania. CRITIS 2018 will be hosted by the Vytautas Magnus University and the Lithuanian Energy Institute.

CRITIS 2018 continues the tradition of presenting innovative research and exploring new challenges in the field of critical (information) infrastructure protection (C(I)IP) and fostering the dialogue between all C(I)I stakeholders. CRITIS 2018 aims at bringing together researchers and professionals from academia, C(I)I operators, industry, defence sector and governmental organisations working in the field of the security of critical (information) infrastructures.

As in previous years, invited speakers and special events will complement a programme of original research contributions. The conference organisers invite the different research communities and stakeholders involved in C(I)IP to attend and present their progress, and encourages discussions and multi-disciplinary approaches to relevant C(I)IP problems.

RGS-IBG Conference

28 - 31 August 2018
Cardiff, United Kingdom
Cardiff University

The 2018 Annual International Conference will be held at Cardiff University from Tuesday 28 August to Friday 31 August 2018.

The chair of this year's conference is Paul Milbourne (Cardiff University, UK), who has chosen 'Geographical landscapes / changing landscapes of geography' as the conference theme. This broad theme provides an opportunity to explore ideas of landscape within geographical scholarship, the popularity of landscape beyond the academy, and the shifting landscapes of geography as an academic discipline.

The RESIN project will be presented under the title "Climate adaptation as co-productive transformation: exploring the interfaces of science, policy and practice in multi-scalar contexts".

Registration for the conference is now open! The provisional programme is now live, and includes details of days and times for sessions. You can find out more about planning your attendance at the conference here.
