As there is greater pressure for sustainable development, the requirements for the environment are becoming more demanding. There is broad agreement that densely populated urban areas should be more sustainable than rural areas. However, while over half of the planet's population lives in cities, they account for more than 75% of the consumption of non-renewable resources, causing climate change. The Built Environment and Engineering Design (BEED) Division will take a new perspective on the sustainable built environment and strategic and resilient approaches to responding to unprecedented events such as climate change. Also, the sustainability of the environment needs to be discussed in line with traditional architectural design, history, theory, and methodology. Therefore, the sessions aim to bring together architects, historians, designers, built environment professionals, climate and energy researchers, policy experts, and government officials to discuss recent research and works. The sessions of the BEED will allow delegates to increase their knowledge and skills related to building design, history, sustainable development, resilience, stakeholder engagement, and the performance of buildings and materials. A total of 6 oral sessions, including a keynote speech (Dr. Luca Simeone) & a roundtable discussion in BE2, is organized at EKC 2024. July 31st (Wednesday) · 9:00-10:40 [BE1] Urban & Architectural History Research (Chair: Kwangjin Lee) · 11:00-12:30 [BE2] (Keynote & Round Table) Thinking as a design material in city-making: Involving city stakeholders in design journeys that deepen their way of envisioning the future (Keynote: Luca Simeone; Chairs: Euiyoung Kim & Semina An) Aug. 1st (Thursday) · 9:00-10:40 [BE3] Changing with the Times - Revitalizing Brownfields in Cities (Chair: Nammyoung Hong) · 11:00-12:40 [BE4] Sustainable Built Environment (Chair: Moon Keun Kim) · 14:00-15:40 [BE5] Acoustics and its Impacts on Built Environments (Chair: Pyoung-jik Lee) · 16:00-17:40 [BE6] Co-creating Sustainable and Resilient Future for the Built Environment (Chair: Nicola Colaninno)

The EKAMA (European-Korean Association of Mechanics and Aerospace) was founded in 2018 during EKC 2018 held in Glasgow, UK, to gather all Korean scientists and engineers working in Europe on Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering together from the 9 Korean associations in Europe. One of our aims is to build up a European network with all these members and to enhance specialized cooperation between Europe and Korea. As the slogan of EKC 2024, the cooperation between the scientific community and industrial communities, Green Industry, we focus on the transfer of technologies in the field of Transportation, such as future Automobiles, aerospace, in particular satellites. Moreover, because we are always interested in environmental problems, new trends in green technologies are one of our concerns. This is why green energy development is also a hot issue. The engineering approach for it, especially the Mechanical one is welcome to be presented and discussed for our green earth. Aerospace is one of the main keywords of this division, especially satellites, because the need for telecommunication is exponentially growing as well as scientific purposes to observe our own earth to prevent environmental changes. Korea has made an important development in this field during the last decades and EKAMA has prominent members working in this field. It could be a good opportunity to join both parts to establish strong links. Digital twin is one of the key words of Industry 4.0 combining design and manufacturing processes. All applications using numerical simulation are welcome to show today’s state of the art.

The world is undergoing a rapid tech revolution phase marked by the integration of digital technologies, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and a focus on circular economy and sustainability. Simultaneously, we face challenges such as cybersecurity, food security, and climate change. The role of women in this era is evolving rapidly, and their contributions are increasingly crucial to shaping the future of technology and innovation. Therefore, women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM) now have numerous opportunities, adopting a holistic approach that connects different ecosystems in this changing landscape. This session aims to explore and promote collaboration between Korean and European researchers and professionals in STEMM fields, with a specific focus on empowering women. We believe that a profound comprehension of the educational and professional cultures in both Korea and Europe has the potential to catalyze and encourage women-led international collaboration. By gaining insights into the nuances of how education and professional environments function in these regions, women in STEMM can leverage this knowledge to build effective partnerships and foster an environment conducive to their successful carrier development.
