Building Energy Resilience: 6th Annual LoLo Conference | Frank Gibb (Sir) Building | Tuesday, 11. June 2019

To limit global warming to below 1.5C, net global anthropogenic carbon emissions must reach net zero by around 2040. This task in isolation is both daunting and challenging. However, broader concerns burden national responses to this crisis due to fears of supply disruption, economic instability and the need for greater energy security. In the **** of multiple challenges planning for resilience has become an increasingly important global theme.
At the London-Loughborough 2019 Student Conference, we are inviting Masters and PhD students and early career researchers in energy demand and related fields in infrastructure and the built environment to discuss the counterintuitive, surprising and poignant findings of their work. Alongside abstracts for 10-minute slide presentations, we welcome submissions for the conference poster session. Furthermore, we welcome attendance at this event for anyone wishing to participate in lively discussions with questions surrounding unexpected results and findings in energy-related research.
Alongside student and researcher presentations, a keynote speech will be given by Dr Ruth Wood from the University of Manchester. Submission and attendance at this event is free and includes lunch and drinks reception followed by early evening pizza and beer. Prizes will be awarded for the best poster and best presentation. We also have a limited number of travel bursaries available for those in need who are travelling from further afield.
