Smart and Sustainable Cities Online Conference (SSC-2020) will be held July 8 - July 10, 2020 in online format.

This year’s theme for the conference is «Advanced technologies for sustainable development of urban green infrastructure». Megapolises are complex ecosystems. Air and water quality, vegetation and soils in megapolises are exposed to anthropogenic influence. Studying negative environmental consequences of the anthropogenic and technogenic pressures is among the key tasks of urban ecology and environmental impact assessment. Advanced approaches and smart technologies to monitor, model and assess environmental consequences and risks in megapolises will be widely discussed at the conference. Searching for solutions of the environmental problems of modern megapolises will be the key point of the conference. Successful experiences of sustainable urban development including management and design of green infrastructure, waste management, run-off purification and remediation of urban soils will be presented.

SSC conference is an excellent discussion platform for a broad audience, including scientific and research community, municipal services, environmental protection agencies and stakeholders working in urban management and greenery.
