Instructions for Authors
Participants in the 1st International Conference on Sustainable Urban Planning & Territorial Management can submit proposals for an oral session, and presentations of posters. Submissions should aim to foster research, networking, and debates related to urban and environmental sciences, its research technologies such as GIS and remote sensing , or the social sciences open to relevant urban and territory case studies or topics such mobility or risk analysis, as well as fruitful exchanges between academia and the public, civic, or private sectors.
Submissions can be made for two types of contributions:
(1) Oral presentation
(2) Poster presentation
Submission deadline: 15 October 2021
Conference attendees and participants can send their questions and inquiries to the following mail:

3–7 November 2021 1st International Congress on Fire in the Earth System
Fire is a key component of the Earth System and a prehistoric evolutionary tool for humankind to manage the landscape and to maintain land productivity. In the 21st century, fire is still in the forefront of environmental management but can still defy our understanding and preparedness mechanisms. To face fire-related challenges, scientists, citizens and practitioners must interact and networking. fEs2021 proposes a hybrid conference with scientists, citizens and practitioners to share information, ideas and goals to use fire as a tool for sustainability.
We invite participants with backgrounds from fire dynamics, fire risk management, fire effects on vegetation, fauna, soil and water, and socio-economic, historical, geographical, political, cultural, artistic, perception and land management approaches. We aim to connect scientific communities around the world with practitioners and citizens that will share different experiences and will boost the emergence of new approaches to fire research. fEs2021 will help to synthesise the existing knowledge, to create fire-resilient landscapes based on integrated approaches that not only include biological, biochemical and physical research, but also socio-economic, historical, geographical, sociological research and pays attention to stakeholder perception and policy constraints. fEs2021 will contribute to prepare society, practitioners and scientists to the intensification and geographical spreading of wildfires under the impact of Climate and Land Use Change. Global Change and fire will be two key actors for the fate of the humankind to be discussed in fEs2021.
1. Fire dynamics
2. Fire risk management
3. Fire effects on biota
4. Fire effects on soil and water,
5. Socio-economic, historical, geographical, political and perception of fire
6. Land management approaches
7. Human evolution and fire
8. Fire prevention and suppression
9. Fire and culture
Proposals for scientific and technical sessions are due until July 1, 2021, and we encourage the development of scientific session in the interfaces of science and practice, in collaboration with stakeholders and land users.
9–14 January 2022 2022 Soil Erosion Research under a Changing Climate—A decadal ASABE Soil Erosion Research Symposium
Punta Borinquén Resort, Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, USA
Soil erosion caused by wind and/or water is a continuing problem throughout the world that threatens the capacity of the Earth to produce food, fiber, and renewable sources of energy for an ever-increasing population. Additionally, eroded sediment and agricultural chemicals are major water and air pollutants, causing many detrimental off-site impacts. Compounding the erosion problems are the effects of climate change. Warmer air temperatures also increase ocean water temperatures that can result in larger and more severe storms and hurricanes. For example, Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria in September 2017, with 2975 fatalities, as well as infrastructure and erosion damages across the island. This symposium provides a forum for international participants to discuss the status and future of soil erosion research.
1. Soil Erosion by Water Research
2. Soil Erosion by Wind Research
3. Erosion Control Research
4. Coastal Zones and Soil Erosion: Dynamics, Mechanics and Damages
5. Conservation Innovations on Steep Lands in the Tropics to AvoidErosion
6. Impacts of Climate Change on Soil Erosion
7. Soil Erosion’s Impact on Water and Air Quality
8. Modeling of Agricultural Systems and Erosion Prediction
9. Modeling Erosion Processes in Forests and Agroecosystems at Watershed and Basin Scales
10.Remote Sensing and Geospatial Technology in Erosion Quantification and Prediction
11.Hurricane Effects on Erosion and Water Quality
12.Emerging Technologies in Soil Erosion Research
13.Watershed Scale Soil Conservation
14.Measurement Techniques in Soil Erosion Research15.Historical Soil Erosion Research in Puerto Rico
