Call for Papers and Spatial Designs: Cities and Identities
We would like to invite you, your colleagues and students to submit papers and spatial designs for the 6th Urban Space and Social Life: Theory and Practice conference. This year’s theme is Projects in Cities and Identities. The submission deadline is March 31st 2015.

Submitted papers and spatial designs should explore the relationship between projects in city and identities. Such projects could include infrastructure (hardware), policies (software) and all things in between. Multi-dimensional identity includes, but is not limited to, cultural, ethnic, gender, class, and place. Case studies and theories in forms of papers and spatial designs which reflect the relationship between projects and identities from international scholars, professionals, business sector and government sectors will stimulate our understanding of this important topic, as well as improve its practices.
