Total Food 2017
31 Oct 2017 - 02 Nov 2017 • Norwich, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The Institute of Food Research, on the Norwich Research Park, is hosting an international conference exploring the latest breakthroughs in research into better ways of exploiting waste and co-products from agriculture and food production. Total Food 2017 is the fifth in a series of conferences focused on the sustainable exploitation of agri-food co-products and related biomass, thereby helping to minimise waste. The conference will bring together agri-food companies, scientists, consumer organisations and waste experts to share views and the latest knowledge on ways of minimising and reusing waste. The conference will look at current food waste and its uses, and will explore new ideas and techniques for adding value to it. As well as bioenergy, biofuels and biogas, speakers will talk about extracting bioactive products that boost human health, can be used as food ingredients, as well as providing new sources of animal feed. As well as reducing wastage in the food chain, such innovations are also designed to make the way we produce our food more environmentally sustainable, as well as offering up new income streams to food and farming businesses. Total Food 2017 is being held at the John Innes Centre Conference Centre, on the Norwich Research Park, 31st October – 2nd November 2017.

Energy from Waste
06 Dec 2017 • London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
A move towards greener energy makes Energy from Waste (EfW) a fundamental cog in energy provision. Supported by the Environmental Services Association (ESA) and European Suppliers of Waste to Energy Technology (ESWET), SMi’s 10th annual conference on Energy from Waste will draw critical updates from those shaping the industry. It will strengthen knowledge in key topics such as EfW feedstock, advanced waste gasification and new financing initiatives, whilst looking at the practicalities of community engagement schemes and keeping attendees at the forefront of technological breakthroughs to adapt to the growing need for sustainable energy. Understanding current UK policy, potential changes after BREXIT and EU initiatives surrounding the circular economy will be a major focus, as will hearing a selection of case studies from international markets and local authorities currently implementing waste projects including the City of Westminster and the North London Waste Authority CHP Plant. Other confirmed speakers include DEFRA, Green Investment Bank, Environment Agency, CEWEP and more.

Urban Regeneration and Sustainability
05 Nov 2018 - 06 Nov 2018 • London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Urban regeneration is the rehabilitation of land areas that are subject to high-density urban land use. It is a strategy that aims to transform and renovate areas to be upgraded in housing, public and private buildings, infrastructure, and services. This entire process is an effective way to improve urban performance by targeting areas with a high incidence of poverty, pollution, and congestion leading to complete economic and regional development of a specific area.

Parallelism in Architecture, Engineering, & Computing Techniques (PACT) – 2018 The 2nd version
08 Nov 2018 - 09 Nov 2018 • London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
Following the success of the first version of the PACT conference, a second version is to be held around the theme of parallelism in Architecture. It will be an attempt to discuss and rather maneuver through the relations between computational design through universal, organizational, and constantly developing contexts. It will focus on practicing computational design software and the challenges faced by its practitioners as an attempt to improve its practice and positively impact the field.
