Welcome to the IASUR Conference

In the 21st century, the rapid urbanization, high density growth, urban sprawl and slums, as well as increasing informality in urban activities, are still the major challenges for most Asian cities and regions. In response to these issues which aimed to establish how engineering, including civil engineering, environmental engineering, architecture and urban planning, can make significant contributions to the resolution of the increasingly severe problems caused by global warming, environmental pollution and urban vulnerability, and to the realization of sustainable cities and regions in Asia, we came to recognize the importance of promoting new paradigms and methodologies. At the same time we recognized the limitation of individual activities in research and education to solve complicated environmental issues.

Following the Agenda of the International Workshop in December 2012 at The University of Tokyo, Japan, we are going to establish an international alliance in order to form an international and interdisciplinary network connecting universities and research institutions toward a solution to sustainable urbanization and regeneration based on the accumulated education and research achievements and experiences of universities in Asia and other regions. This international conference that is going to be initiatively organized by the Organizing Committee for International Alliance for Sustainable Urbanization and Regeneration (IASUR) will be a memorable event to the launch of the new alliance as well as a remarkable opportunity to exchange the up-dated information and ideas.

The main theme of this conference is "Sustainable Society as Our Challenge". We have to steer the directionality for sustainable urban regeneration or urbanization so that it is repositioned within the scope of, and the capacity for, urban and regional sustainability through a process of continuous international collaboration. We have great expectations that this new alliance will make a significant contribution in further developing and raising the academic status of research and education for the future of Asian cities and regions.
