Conference Overview:

The challenge of renewing the conceptual structures and the technical 
applications to the complex problem of human development, the active 
metropolization, the accelerated occupation of territory and, all the 
accumulated consequences throughout modern history worsened with 
Globalization's dynamic process, have been the fundamental approach of the 
"City and Virtual Territory" International Congresses, fulfilled in 
Barcelona (2004), Concepcion (2005) and Bilbao (2006). During these, ideas, 
studies and projects have been struggled and displayed, under the optic of 
contribution to knowledge by the new computer science technologies, concrete 
proposals and achieved actions by an interesting group of scientific 
investigators, enterprises and prestigious institutions.

In this perspective, we propose to continue this joint effort and generate 
an ample space for meeting all those who search for solutions to the 
urban/territorial development with social equity, the preservation of 
natural environment, the impulse of a citizen's participation culture, its 
democratic consequences and the possibility to find out better ways to trace 
a qualitative horizon to our cities' development; as well all those that 
contributes positively to face the territorial-entail challenge and the XXI 
century's imaginaries.

In order to continue this process, the Art, Architecture and Design Center 
of the University of Guadalajara, Mexico, accompanied in this effort by an 
important group of public and private institutions from several countries, 
we CONVOKE public and private organizations, researchers, students, 
professionals and all those who may be interested, to the 4th International
