Conference Info
The successful heritage of the previous ACUUS Conferences should not only be safeguarded but also enriched by establishing a multidisciplinary think-tank group that will allow the incorporation of subsurface space as an integral part of the future physical planning and zoning. Today, underground development encompasses the relocation of several surface land uses or activities, which are difficult, impractical, less profitable, or even environmentally undesirable to be installed on ground level, into subsurface built environments.

The 11th ACUUS Conference: "Underground Space: Expanding the Frontiers" will be held in Athens in September 2007. The 4-day symposium aims not only at strengthening and promoting the scientific knowledge but also at bringing closer engineers, architects, policy planners and decision makers, in a pursue to bridge the gap between them and adopt common policies that will allow the faster adaptation of underground development.
