CONFERENCE INFO BELOW:
The conference invites academics, experts, practitioners, and policy-makers for a critical debate. The aim is to develop a two-fold approach; one fold reads into the future by daring to imagine a different form of life that pushes the boundaries of innovation and creativity in the pursuit of a vision for new-responsible interactive cities, that integrate productivity, effectiveness, and attractiveness. The other fold claims an ability to anticipate and pre-empt the various risks and uncertainties of such development and/or expansions.
The conference seeks to push forward the boundaries of current practices and knowledge to embrace innovative solutions, novel approaches, and grounded technologies within realistic comprehension of economic risks and environmental implications.
It investigates different scales and situations, various urban forms and morphology, localities and totalities.
It provides a platform for academics and practitioners to present recent research, findings, and answers to pressing issues of building new cities and expanding existing ones worldwide within their ecological limits, formulating images, architecture, public spaces to create liveable, working, and productive cities.
