Smart Cities / Regions

Technical, economic and social innovations

The 10th BUIS-Tage 2018 (“CEMIS-Days”, Corporate Enviromental Management Information Systems) are organized by the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Research (COAST) of the University of Oldenburg. The focus is on “smart” cities and regions. The sustainable development of such structures is not limited to individual aspects – the interaction is crucial. The conference will present innovative methods and concepts in the interaction of science, business, politics and society.

The different information technology solutions and approaches are reflected in current (planned) smart cities and regions. These provide an indication of how the impact of sustainable ideas and solutions will impact the environment in the upcoming years. The conference aims to discuss innovative approaches (technical, economic and social) in expert sessions and show how corporate environmental information systems can influence these developments.

Welcome to the 10th BUIS days in Oldenburg. We are looking forward to see you.

During the 10. BUIS-Tage 2018 in Oldenburg we want to give all participants the opportunity to inform themselves about the ongoing project “Artombo” and to support it. The project, a cooperation between Nelson Mandela University, South Africa, and German universities supported by the DAAD, has set itself the goal of offering high-quality art instruction for learners who would otherwise not have the opportunity to do so. In addition to artistic skills, students are taught various life skills. The results of the learners will be presented at the conference.
