Call For Papers

CPUD '16 / City Planning and Urban Design Summit and Conference will be held on April 7-9, 2016 at Cezayir Conference Halls in Istanbul. The conference is coordinated by DAKAM (Eastern Mediterranean Academic Research Center)and will be organized by BİLSAS (Science, Art, Sport Productions).

In the new millennium, the politics, needs, priorities and planning itself are in constant change and obviously new challenges in terms of city planning are put forward. Today many cities are working to encourage populations to return to their urban core through the creation of revitalization efforts to distressed neighborhoods and old downtown centers. Industrial zones are moving, life styles are changing and growth and immigration in mega cities are still an issue. Given the importance of cities as significant social, political and economic centers, the rethinking of planning comes at a principal moment when urban policy must be able to plan for a sustainable future in relation to the individual needs of neighborhoods, individuals and established urban systems.
