The PLURIS represents the continuation of the partnership between researchers from Brazil and Portugal since 2005. It constitutes a technical and scientific multidisciplinary association, bringing together professionals working on the following topics: Environment and Energy; Groundbreaking and Intelligent Cities; Mobility and Transport; and Regional and Urban Planning.

Preceded by PLURIS 2014 held in Lisbon – Portugal, the biennial Congress has its seventh edition in Brazil, this time being based in Maceió – Alagoas, from 05 - 07 of October 2016. The Conference is open to participants with different profiles: researchers, students and professionals linked to the themes and topics addressed in the conference. Thus, the new edition in 2016 reinforces and supplements the established contacts and integrate new participants whose academic work and professional fall within the themes of the congress.

In the seventh edition of PLURIS, the contrasts, contradictions and urban complexities, challenges of the twenty-first century will be the focus of the event. The experience in cities today shows new forms of permanence, use and production of the urban environment and the challenge is the search for an equilibrated relation between man and the environment, the adequate constructive density and infrastructure for sustainable mobility and spatial inclusion, and others topics. Increasingly, the various professionals working in the urban spaces faces the needs of these current demands and the challenge of the intervention.
