*******The deadline for the call for abstracts is extended to 30 April 2017.*******

Re-City 2017, the 2nd International City Regeneration Congress, under the theme “(Im)Possible Cities” will be arranged in Tampere, Finland, on 24 – 25 August 2017. The Congress provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, students and practitioners in the fields of urban planning, architecture, traffic planning and logistics, ecology, urban history, informatics, health sciences, economics and business, political sciences, social sciences and humanities. 

The theme “(Im)Possible Cities” allows for a wide range of approaches concerning city regeneration and the challenges implied in the visioning, planning and construction the cities. The congress seeks especially for good and bad examples of real city regeneration cases. However, more theoretical and imaginary approaches are also welcomed. The congress has five tracks: 

 

◢ Black
    Black track calls for abstracts dealing with impossible and possible examples of dystopic and anarchic features, warfare related issues, urban conflicts and destructive behaviour, as well as pollution and contaminant issues in city regeneration.
◢ Blue
    Blue track calls for abstracts dealing with impossible and possible examples of water management and other water-related issues like urban waterfronts, water energy, water traffic and floating buildings in city regeneration. In addition, the cultural and philosophical approaches concerning the role of water and sky in city regeneration are welcomed.
◢ Brown
    Brown track calls for abstracts dealing with impossible and possible examples of industrial buildings, brown fields, architectural decay and patina, urban fallows, railway stations and airports, as well as temporary uses in city regeneration.
◢ Green
    Green track calls for abstracts dealing with impossible and possible examples of green spaces like parks, urban meadows and landscapes, as well as health issues and ecological aspects in city regeneration.
◢ Rainbow
    Rainbow track calls for abstracts dealing with all other kinds of impossible and possible examples of city regeneration, for instance gender, urban minority or mixed use issues.
