We are please to announce the International Conference on 'Urban Change in Iran' hosted by University College of London on 8-9 of November 2012 and organised by the Bartlett Development Planning Unit, Encyclopaedia Iranica, Civitas Phoenix and Urban Design Group UK.

The conference’s primary goal is to provide an international forum for analysing the dynamic of drivers for urban change and the way they are dealt with, it is also aimed at prompting future direction by bridging the gap between theory and practice. The conference guiding questions
are categorised to reflect, a) dynamic drivers from one side and, b) the way urban authorities address these drivers in practice.

Of particular interest for the conference are the socio-cultural drivers of urban transformation along with the impacts of exposure to natural hazards on one hand, and the way in which they are dealt with on the other. The conference aims to bring together the knowledge of the dynamics of urban change and that of urban management in the Iranian built environment context. It also intends to explore the ways in which the knowledge of the subject matter can inform the practice.
The seminar aims to provide a platform for drawing out principles from the past, which are applicable today. These principles are the most needed outcomes to not only historical continuity, but also localising the contemporary approach towards urban design within the region.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to hear from renowned keynote speaker and contributors within the field with special features such as workshops and exhibitions .

Papers are invited for the conference with the Submission of abstracts by 15 April 2012.
