Summary

The symposium is an invitation addressed to both new and established researchers, as well as experts from both the private or public spheres, who seek to rethink - or even revolutionize - mobility as a societal problem and/or practice, as well as its relation to metropolitan territories and places, through fields of knowledge and action as varied as architecture, engineering, geography, new technologies, and others. The underlying premise of this event is that a new inter-disciplinary, inter-cultural and inter-stakeholder dialogue is necessary in order to respond effectively to the urban mobility issues put forward by the three pillars (social, political and cultural) of sustainable development. How to combine the growing necessity and desire for speed in travel, with the imperative of reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gases? At the same time, how to achieve better quality public space dedicated to or crossed by mobility? How to ensure that the mobility of people, whether undergone or chosen, is part of a municipal and societal project that is acceptable and sustainable?

Presentation

Call for proposals for the first International Symposium of the Innovative Metropolitan Mobility Chair (ENSAS-CAUP Tongji-SYSTRA):  "Innovative mobility and urban design. Mirroring contemporary metropolises" ,June 28-29, 2018.Symposium promoted by the Innovative Metropolitan Mobility Chair (ENSAS-CAUP Tongji-SYSTRA), co-organized by AMUP (Architecture, Morphologie/Morphogenèse Urbaine, Projet Laboratory, ENSA Strasbourg and INSA de Strasbourg) and LIVE (Laboratoire Image Ville et Environnement, University of Strasbourg-CNRS) and supported by the IdEx program of the University of Strasbourg.

The Innovative Metropolitan Mobilitiy Chair, AMUP (Architecture, Morphologie/Morphogenèse Urbaine, Projet) and LIVE (Laboratoire Image Ville et Environnement de l'Université de Strasbourg) laboratories, are pleased to announce that the Innovative mobility and urban design: Mirroring contemporary metropolises international symposium is now open for proposals.

The symposium is an invitation addressed to both new and established researchers, as well as experts from both the private or public spheres, who seek to rethink - or even revolutionize - mobility as a societal problem and/or practice, as well as its relation to metropolitan territories and places, through fields of knowledge and action as varied as architecture, engineering, geography, new technologies, and others.

The underlying premise of this event is that a new inter-disciplinary, inter-cultural and inter-stakeholder dialogue is necessary in order to respond effectively to the urban mobility issues put forward by the three pillars (social, political and cultural) of sustainable development. How to combine the growing necessity and desire for speed in travel, with the imperative of reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gases? At the same time, how to achieve better quality public space dedicated to or crossed by mobility? How to ensure that the mobility of people, whether undergone or chosen, is part of a municipal and societal project that is acceptable and sustainable?

The symposium presents itself as an opportunity to collectively reflect on these questions by discussing (research or practice) experiences where mobility issues are related to urban, architectural, public space and energy transition concerns and challenges. The objective of this event is thus to deepen and exchange knowledge on these topics by mirroring research and research-action experiences, experimental approaches and methodologies developed in different contemporary metropolitan contexts.
