Problems of the growth and development of regions are treated as a priority in the socio-economic and geographical sciences today. This is due to ever-deepening inequalities among regions, whether located in the various parts of the world or within individual states. That is why there has been a search for theories and models that would allow a precise description of endogenous and exogenous factors of growth and development of the various regions.
The output in this field is quite substantial, but so far no theory has been worked out that would identify connections holding among the growth and development factors without making oversimplifying assumptions.

From a theoretical and an empirical point of view, especially interesting are the growth and development problems of regions that used to belong to one socio-economic system but are now in various socio-economic and political organisations as a result of changes that took place in the late 20th century, for example the regions of Russia and Poland. In this context, comparative analyses of the role of innovations and of the management of social development processes in regions are gaining in importance.

That is why the Institute of Socio-Economic Geography and Spatial Management of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, together with the Irkutsk Scientific Centre of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the V.B. Sochava Institute of Geography of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, have decided to organise a scientific-economic conference on "Regions and their Socio-Economic Growth", which will be held on 3-4 September 2012 in Poznan.
