We invite you to contribute to the conference 
"Reinventing the City 2022 - Towards sustainable urban transformations"


We welcome both submissions for (academic) paper presentations, as well as proposals for workshops & special sessions by urban innovators (from both policy and industry). Do you have an urban challenge you would like to dive into with interdisciplinary experts, then this is a unique opportunity to submit a proposal to exchange ideas. 

We welcome ideas for paper presentation sessions, as well as workshops of various kinds. The sessions are now open for submissions (until December 6) and will take place in the afternoon (90- or 180-minute sessions). They can be either online, hybrid or at the conference venue (depending on the number of participants and conference rooms available).

Topics: mobility | circularity | energy transition | climate adaptation | urban food systems | digitization

We invite academics working in the fields of urban design and governance, architecture, data science and engineering to submit an abstract for a conference presentation (max 250 words). Notification of acceptance will follow before December 20, 2021.

We invite private and public urban innovators to submit or discuss an idea with us for a conference session dedicated to a particular theme of sustainable urban transformation.

The format for the sessions can be diverse, such as lectures or workshops. The focus is on combining research and innovation, policy or practical challenges, new insights and designs. For instance, a topic that directly affects citizens of a city, that can be explored during the session with city officials, public organizations, and scientists.

Please highlight the goal of the session, expected collaborators (if any), the targeted audience and the type of session. Also indicate if you prefer an online or onsite setting. Please note that you will be responsible for the content of the session.

We look forward to receiving your contributions!
