  2. Urban dynamics in high and medium density areas (allocation of services and green urban areas, impacts on cities -Big Data- and in urban interphase territories -wildland fires-, social economic activity and economic spaces). Topics addressed: quality of life and biodiversity.
  3. Structural systems dynamics relating population and sustainability (mobility, public spaces, health, ageing and infant population, natural ventilation, soil sealing and energy saving, noise). Topics addressed: quality of life, sustainability/risk.
