Key themes and questions for consideration

Proposals are encouraged to address critical themes such as the effects of shared mobility technologies, the shift towards public mobility, the dynamic landscape of e-commerce and urban delivery, and the imminent deployment of autonomous vehicles.

Sessions can take the form of 90-minute full sessions, accommodating 3-5 speakers, or 3-hour workshops, led by at least 3 organisers. The emphasis is on well-prepared presentations, discussions, and conversations that contribute to a robust exploration of the conference themes.

Selection process

The Program Committee, consisting of experts in the field, seeks to curate a program that spans a broad spectrum of disciplines, sectors, and global viewpoints.

With no limit on the number of proposals that can be submitted, the Urbanism Next Europe Conference seeks to bring together a diverse array of voices. The Program Committee aims to select approximately 32 sessions and 4 to 6 workshops that offer a rich tapestry of perspectives.

Moreover, while participants are not obligated to submit a paper, those interested in contributing to the academic discourse can submit full papers. The academic track provides a unique opportunity for publication in a peer-reviewed journal, fostering the dissemination of knowledge beyond the conference.
