A great opportunity for all UTS people interested in the urban: the “6th International Urban Design Conference”. The event will be held at Novotel Sydney Olympic Park from Monday the 9th  to Wednesday 11th of September 2013.

More info below, and at the website of the event.

The conference “UrbanAgiNation” urbanisation | agitation | imagination will examine the Liveability, Productivity, Affordability and Efficiency of our Cities.

“Three-quarters of Australians live in our 18 major cities (that have populations over 100, 000). While Australians are fortunate to enjoy some of the most  liveable cities in the world, our cities face a number of long term challenges: the need to improve productivity growth; provide affordable and accessible  housing; create safe community spaces; meet the needs of a growing and ageing population; ensure an inclusive and cohesive society; and address the implications of climate change. The way our cities develop to accommodate future growth and change will be critical to maintaining their status as some of  the best cities in the world”.

You can submit an abstract on the conference website http://urbandesignaustralia.com.au where you will also find more details.

The 2012 Books of Proceedings with the peer reviewed and non peer reviewed papers are available on the website homepage.
