The 18th Sustainable Environment and Architecture (SENVAR) Conference 2018


Sustainable Environment and Architecture (SENVAR) conference is an annual conference series started from the year of 2001

It has been taking place in many venues, many institutions and countries, particularly Asian countries. The main focus of SENVAR as represented by the title is about sustainable environment and its connection to architecture. 

For the year 2018, SENVAR conference will be organised in Universitas Sebelas Maret Surakarta. The theme and the description of the conference are as follows: 

Architecture and built environment towards future challenges.

 The issue of sustainability has been the main concern in architecture in the last two decades. This issue acknowledges the impact of architecture and built environment to society and living environment. While the 21st century has brought us more challenges than ever in climate change and global warming, it also brings more opportunities through new innovations and approaches that can be applied in architecture and built environment.



SENVAR 2018 is calling for abstracts related to this topic. Abstracts of up to 300 words should be submitted to along with author names and affiliations.

Architecture and built environment towards future challenges.

Sustainable approach to address future challenges in the scope of architecture and urban environment.
Sub topics:

Innovation and technology in architecture and built environment

This sub topic focuses on innovation and technology in architecture and built environment, which can be in the field of building materials, structures, construction, utilities that deal directly to the issue of global warming, zero-carbon footprint, and low energy use.

Sustainable development for tourism and heritage

While tourism is the industry of the future with least side effect to the society, tourism development particularly in traditional society should be done in a careful way. This is to minimize the impacts of tourism to the society.

Urban resilience and livability

Urban resilience is the ability of the urban environment to face challenges and to recover quickly after a disaster. This topic has been the new urgency around the world. Livability is the ability of the urban environment to provide quality of life to its community. Both resilience and livability could be reached without sustainability. However, in this sub topic, we seek paper that focus on the intersection between resilience, livability and sustainability.
