Call for Papers: City Futures '09 International
Conference, Madrid, 4-6 June 2009

Call for Papers - Your invitation to participate

What does the future hold for cities in a rapidly globalising world?

Please consider contributing your knowledge and insights on this theme
to a multi-disciplinary, international conference on City Futures.

The European Urban Research Association (EURA) and the Urban Affairs
Association (UAA) hold their second Joint Conference on City Futures in
Madrid on 4-6 June 2009. By building on the success of the first such
conference, held in Chicago in 2004, the conference aims to focus
sharply on international exchange.

Urban scholars on both sides of the Atlantic have created a five-track
structure for this forward-looking conference:

. Climate change, resource use and urban adaptation

. Knowledge and technology in urban development

. Community development, migration and integration in urban areas

. Urban governance and city planning in an international era

. Architecture and the design of the public realm

Several universities in Madrid are working closely with the Mayor's
Office to create an unforgettable programme. As well as having the
opportunity to interact with leading scholars from across the world, you
will be able to take advantage of a variety of study tour opportunities.

For more details, including guidance on how to submit your proposal,

contact details of the Track Co-Chairs.
