Workshop: Smart Cities – Governing Accessibility, Air Pollution and Equity

The call for papers for a special joint Cluster 2/6 workshop Smart Cities – Governing Accessibility, Air Pollution and Equity at the University of São Paulo, Brazil, August 24-25, 2017 can be found here.

This workshop aims to discuss the complex relationships between transport, urbanization, inequalities in accessibility and air pollution, and the governance and policy implications of the development of smart and equitable cities and transport policies. The workshop focuses on major cities and metropolitan areas in Europe, North America and Brasil.

 Please note that is a small sized workshop (20 persons) for which University of São Paulo will apply for co-funding from the São Paulo Research Foundation FAPESP. For this application, the full workshop programme, including abstracts and CVs of presenters, is needed. We will be able to fund airline tickets, meals and accommodation for three nights, for one author per paper, if FAPESP provides funding. In the unlikely case that FAPESP funding is unavailable, conference dinner and accommodation for two nights will be offered to 20 participants, for only one author per paper. In addition to invited speakers a limited number of abstracts will be accepted.

 If you are interested to participate in this workshop, please send an abstract of your presentation (about 500 words) including author names and affiliations and keywords, and your CV (2-4 pages) in PDF format to k.t.geurs@utwente.nl and j.p.pritchard@utwente.nl before January 31, 2017.
