Symposium “Toward integrated modelling of urban systems”
15-17th October 2014, Lyon (France)

The symposium is a biennially event of the French Scientific Network “Urban Modelling”. The scope of urban modeling includes the built environment and the physical phenomena, the urban morphologies and the spatial and temporal dynamics, the nature and the living in town. This mobilizes the human and social sciences, the sciences of the environment and the engineering sciences.

The scientific committee of the symposium wishes to favour research papers tackling urban issues from the point of view of the integrated modelling and the removing of barriers between urban dimensions and between disciplines. The selection of the communications will be made by the scientific committee based on long abstracts (3 pages, approximately 1000 words). No full paper will be required for the symposium but initiating special issues in scientific journals will be considered.

Contributions are expected in the following fields
– Urban metabolism
– Urban mobility
– City logistics
– Digital city
– Urban climate
– Natural and anthropogenic physical phenomena
– Social, legal and economic phenomena
– Urban biodiversity
– Energy, water and other resources
