Dear Colleagues,

we cordially invite you and your research group to submit a paper to the International Conference on Seismic and Energy Renovation for Sustainable Cities (SER4SC 2018), which will be held on 1st-3rd February 2018 in Catania, Sicily – Italy.

SER4SC 2018 is a tailored event to spread the awareness about the relevance of seismic and energy renovation actions to bridge the gap between sustainability and safety, with a link that may conserve both human and environmental resources. The venue of the conference represents a hotspot for the concerned field, therefore attendance is expected to be significant, both in quality and quantity.

The purpose of the conference is to stimulate discussions of new ideas and find new perspectives in traditional methods, approaches, and tools. SER4SC 2018 will provide a comprehensive view of the latest developments relating the reduction of seismic vulnerability and energy dependence of our towns.

SER4SC 2018 Conference Proceedings (E-Book, ISBN: 978-88-96386-56-9) will be published by EdicomEdizioni. Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their research work for the Special Issue of the open access Journal Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
