International Conference on Sustainable Urban Development 2014 - This conference is organised by the Chilean Centre for Sustainable Urban Development (CEDEUS), a collaboration between the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile and the Universidad de Concepción, and financed by the National Research Council of Chile. CEDEUS invites researchers on urban issues to participate in this english-language conference in order to share experiences on concepts and methods in urban sustainable development research and practice. The themes to be explored in the conference include, among others: theory and concepts in sustainable urban development; holistic urban research methodologies; disciplinary research methods oriented towards urban sustainability; evaluation of sustainable urban development and the development of indicators; public policy; participation and governance; transport and mobility; built environment; integrated planning; and critical resource assessment and management We look forward to receiving abstracts by 25 OCTOBER 2013 (400 words, see template in www.cedeusconference.cl).

Proceedings of the Institution of Civil Engineers Call for Papers: Urban Design and Planning is planning a themed issue for 2014 on the ‘art’ of urban design. Urban design involves both scientific research and creative expression. Design is primarily about the creative synthesis of information and its integration into physical form whereas most urban design research tends to focus on analysis. Accordingly, research and design tend to operate in mutual tension. Christian Norberg-Schulz argued that ‘a concrete (as in ‘specific’) term for environment is place’. So if the aim of urban design is to make place, it should involve the skilful marshalling of generalised social, political, cultural, economic and spatio-physical information to make a coherent case for a specific formal configuration. This is what is meant here by the ‘art’ of urban design. If the ability to make specific or concrete is lost, even if we talk about ‘making place’, we can only produce another piece of ‘environment’.

Virginia Tech's School of Public and International Affairs initiates a conference and research series promoting interdisciplinary discussion. The purpose is to push through disciplinary limitations in understanding social phenomena and to suggest solutions to problems. The first conference took place in April 2012 and focused on distressed cities. Our approach is twofold. First we advance a progressive, interdisciplinary exchange during each Ridenour Faculty Fellowship conference. Second, we build a research network between scholars, artists, and practitioners aimed at generating insights for practice and publications from research inspired by the conferences.
