Special Issue on Advanced Data Analytics and Technologies for Decoding Human Health & Well-being in Built Environments.
Journal of Engineering for Sustainable Buildings and CitiesSubmit Paper
We invite submissions for an upcoming special issue on Advanced Data Analytics and Technologies for Decoding Human Health and Well-being in Built Environments. This special issue covers topics from a recent NSF-sponsored US-UK international workshop and aims to showcase the latest research in the field of human health and wellbeing resulting from the impact of built environments. We welcome submissions from researchers in all relevant disciplines, such as architecture, urban planning, engineering, computer science and engineering, social sciences, public health, and those working in any area related to human health and wellbeing in built environments.
This special issue seeks to advance the understanding of the complex interplay between different factors that influence human health and well-being in built environments. We are particularly interested in work that employs multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, including quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research, which may involve using advanced data and analytic technologies, as well as design thinking and stakeholder engagement.
Topic AreasTHE SCOPE OF THIS ISSUE INCLUDES BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO:
- The impact of built environments on physical health and well-being: Exploring the factors that contribute to physical health and well-being in built environments, including access to physical activity opportunities, air quality, noise levels, and other environmental factors.
- The impact of built environments on mental health and well-being: Examining the relationship between built environments and mental health and well-being, such as access to green spaces, exposure to natural light, and opportunities for social interaction.
- Design and planning of healthy and sustainable built environments: Developing and implementing design strategies and planning policies that promote healthy and sustainable built environments, taking into account resource efficiency, environmental impact, and health and well-being outcomes.
- The role of technology and innovation in promoting health and well-being in built environments: Exploring the potential of emerging technologies and innovative solutions to enhance health and well-being outcomes in built environments, such as novel sensors and sensing systems, smart buildings, automated lighting and climate control systems, and virtual reality environments that simulate natural settings.
- Environmental justice and equity in built environments: Examining the distribution of environmental hazards, access to healthcare services, and the availability of healthy food options in built environments and identifying policy and planning interventions that promote environmental justice and equity. This may involve using advanced data and analytic technologies, as well as community-based participatory research and engagement with marginalized communities.
