Call For Papers

Welcome to the Asian Conference on Urban Planning and Sustainable Cities, which will be held April 26-27, 2018 at the Hiroshima Mitsui Garden Hotel in partnership with the 4th Conference on Sustainable Business in Asia and the 3rd Pacific Rim Energy and Sustainability Conference.

In addition to these events participants will have an opportunity to visit Hiroshima Peace Park and the famous shrine island of Miyajima — both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Early Registration is only 25,000 JPY. All registered participants will be invited to the welcome reception and provided with a free, guided tour of Hiroshima Peace Park. The first 10 registrants will also receive a free ticket for the Miyajima Shrine Island Tour, which includes round-trip transportation, park entrance fee and a snack with tea at a Japanese tea house.

About UP-City 2018

As the world’s population becomes predominantly urban, academics and practitioners are challenged to find sustainable solutions to increasingly complex urban problems. Sustainable cities require a balance between environmental protection and economic development ensuring equitable outcomes. Achieving such a delicate balance requires tackling complex urban problems that may lead to unsustainable development paths.

Understanding today’s complex urban problems requires a variety of theoretical frameworks and methods. The Asian region has traditionally looked at urban planning problems from an intra-disciplinary quantitative perspective. The conference welcomes innovative technical approaches, but also encourages diverse views and analysis procedures, including qualitative and mixed methods. We seek to create a learning environment where participants can share their research and discuss trans-disciplinary ideas to propose solutions to today’s increasingly complex urban problems.
