AEESP Conference 2019

Environmental engineers and scientists see cities in 4-D:
The built environment, the natural environment, human health, and cyberspace

May 14–16, 2019
Arizona State University

We are excited to announce that Arizona State University (ASU) will host the 2019 AEESP Research and Education Conference in Tempe, AZ in collaboration with the University of Arizona (UofA) and Northern Arizona University (NAU). This is the first time that the AEESP Research and Education Conference is being held in the Southwestern US and only the third time in the western US. The conference dates are Tuesday, May 14 through Thursday, May 16, 2019.

The conference theme is “Environmental Engineers & Scientists see Cities in 4-D” with emphasis on cities and the dimensions of the built environment, the natural environment, human health, and cyberspace. The conference theme was selected to leverage ASU’s place, i.e., Phoenix is the 5th largest city in the US, and balance the traditional dimensions of environmental engineering and science (emphasis on the natural and built environments) with increasing emphasis on human health (human microbiome, building microbiome, etc.) and cyber applications (e.g., Internet of Things, artificial intelligence). “Environmental Engineers & Scientists see Cities in 4-D” also provides a coherent theme for integrating research and education, and will provide a venue to share advances in education research and curriculum development, such as environmental engineering programs offering minors or certificates in sustainability, data science, and other complementary and emerging fields.

The conference schedule will include one day of pre-conference workshops and two days of technical sessions and other activities. Conference attendees will find it very easy to travel to ASU. Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport is just 10 minutes from ASU and connected by light rail. Finally, consider exploring Arizona before or after the conference. Examples include an assortment of museums in the Phoenix area, many options for hiking, and the Grand Canyon. Follow the conference on Twitter @AEESP2019_ASU for updates.
