Event details

Earth Systems Engineering Conference 2012 will explore how engineering decisions can better respond to the challenges of intensifying global change.

 

Earth Systems Engineering addresses the analysis, design, engineering and management of coupled human, environmental and engineered systems.

3rd-5th July 2012, Newcastle University, UK

The potential of technology to help solve many of the world's most pressing problems, ranging from climate change to resource scarcity and poverty, is widely recognised. However, rationally managing and engineering the Earth's systems is a hugely complex task. Earth Systems Engineering 2012 will explore how engineering decisions can better respond to the challenges of intensifying global change. These challenges include long term changes (e.g. in the climate, land use and human behaviour), societal interactions (e.g. between the built environment, transport demand and greenhouse gas emissions) and many other uncertainties.

Submissions are sought for the following symposium themes:

  • Cities and Infrastructure
  • Catchment and coastal management
  • Engineering within resource constraints
  • Geoengineering
  • Modelling of coupled human, natural and technological systems
  • Foresight and understanding long term change
  • Decision-making and management of complex systems
