4- Polycentrism, small and medium-sized cities

5- Sustainable to resilient cities

6- Shrinking and aging cities

7- Urban governance, planning and participative democracy

8- Contested social spaces

Only abstracts submitted via the platform will be accepted


Early career researchers are considered before PhD completion or within 5
years after.

The Commission provides grants to help defray the costs of young
participation to the Conference. Please note that, due to limited
availability of funds, the IGU Travel Grants provide only the contribution
to registration.

In selecting applicants to receive awards, preference will be given to
young or emerging scholars, in particular to those from developing
countries. Because the funds available for this awards program are
extremely limited, all applicants will be required to find the balance of
the costs of participation; applications for 100% support cannot be funded.
Please note that full participation in the conference, including the
closing ceremony, is required.

The selection will be made according to an extended abstract of 5-6 pages
(longer than the regular abstract). The application to the grant must be
indicated in the registration form and in the beginning of the abstract
form. The template of abstract is the same, but the abstract must be more
consistent in order to better judge of the content.

We will be delighted to welcome you to this conference,

Celine Rozenblat & Markus Hesse
