The Center for Applied Geomatics (CAG
<https://crdf.org.in/center/center-for-applied-geomatics>) at CEPT Research
and Development Foundation (CRDF <https://crdf.org.in/>), Ahmedabad, India
and Leibniz Institute of Ecological Urban and Regional Development (IOER
<https://ioer.de/en/>), Dresden, Germany are organizing the 4th ‘*International
Land Use Symposium (ILUS) 2023*’ from 3-6 October 2023 at CEPT University,
Ahmedabad, India.

*Conference website:* https://ilus2023.ioer.info/
*Date:* 3rd – 6th October 2023
*Location:* CEPT University, KL Campus, Ahmedabad – 380009 (Gujarat, India)

*About ILUS 2023*
The biennial International Land Use Symposium (ILUS) brings together
leading academics in the fields of GIScience and spatial planning. The
objective of the interdisciplinary conference is to advance the
understanding of built-up areas and to develop new ideas for sustainable
urbanization. ILUS brings together leading international academics and
interested attendees for presentation, discussion, and collaborative
networking in the fields of spatial sciences, environmental studies,
geography, cartography, GIScience, urban planning, architecture, which
relate to investigations of settlements and infrastructure.

Previous ILUS conferences <https://ilus2023.ioer.info/about-ilus> in
Dresden (Germany), Paris (France) and Haifa (Israel) have seen excellent
participation from the international scientific community to advance the
concepts of sustainable urbanization.

*Theme – ILUS 2023*

Under the umbrella of the thematic area, ‘*Urban Analytics for Transforming
Cities and Regions*‘, ILUS 2023 is dedicated to give answers to the
question how interdisciplinary concepts in spatial analysis and data
modelling can contribute and support sustainable urban and regional
development. To this end, the symposium covers the major topics: Urban
Dynamics, Resilient urban and regional systems and Open data in planning
and urban management. In addition, contributions can be submitted in an
open category if their topical focus is indirectly related to major topics
of the symposium. The symposium encourages original contributions with the
goal of advancing knowledge on urban dynamics towards sustainability in the
Global South and Global North.

We therefore encourage interdisciplinary contributions that show the
heterogeneous applicability of urban analytics, in particular geospatial
data, analysis, modeling and simulation for a transition towards
sustainable urban and regional systems. Contributions may be theoretical,
methodological, or applied in nature.

*Call for Abstracts – OPEN NOW!*
The organizing committee is pleased to invite abstracts of no more than 500
words, to be submitted using the submission link below, *on or before **30th
July 2023**:*


They should refer to the following thematic strands:

   1. *Urban dynamics*: global perspectives on structures and dynamics of
   cities, trajectories of cities towards sustainability, urban models for
   urban transformation, urban sprawl, densification, suburbanisation, cities
   as complex systems, urban spatial networks and accessibility, and
   spatiotemporal big data.
   2. *Resilient urban and regional systems*: urban planning and climate
   change adaptation with a focus on urban heat island, land policies,
   benefits of green and blue infrastructures, energy transition, renewable
   energies and energy efficiency, smart city models, socio-spatial
   3. *Open data in planning and urban management*: open data portals,
   geodata infrastructures, governmental open data initiatives, co-production
   of geodata, citizen science, participatory approaches, data literacy in
   urban planning
   4. *Various*: This topic contains free contributions whose topical focus
   is indirectly related.

We also want to emphasize the possibility of poster presentations across
all thematic strands. Please select “*Submission for Posters*“, if you
prefer this option.

Abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee
<https://ilus2023.ioer.info/organization> of ILUS 2023. Accepted abstracts
will be presented as oral presentations and be published in the digital
conference proceedings.

*Publication of Full Papers*
Selected post-conference full papers will be eligible for submission to
thematic special issues of the journals Buildings and Cities
<https://www.buildingsandcities.org/> and Journal of Geovisualization and
Spatial Analysis <https://www.springer.com/journal/41651>.

Any questions regarding the submission and publication process should be
addressed to ilus2023 at mail.ioer.de
