55th International Making Cities Livable Conference on Healthy, 10-Minute Neighborhoods
In 1985, when these conferences began, there was no discussion at other planning or architectural conferences, or even at the League of Cities Conferences about making our cities more “livable”. Only the IMCL Conferences focused attention on the importance of making cities livable for children first, the need for public transit, bicycle lanes, and traffic calmed streets, for human scale architecture and mixed use urban fabric, for reviving the city center and creating public places where people could gather for farmers markets, festivals, outdoor cafes and community social life.
Paper proposals are invited from elected officials, scholars and practitioners concerned with issues such as the following (only some examples):
This conference brings together academics from across the world around the issues of sustainability and resilience in cities. It is multi-disciplinary and invites architects, planners, engineers and urban designers. It also welcomes geographers, sociologists, urban economists, housing specialists, and more.
The reason for bringing these disciplines together around the sustainability and resilience of cities is simple: we cannot solve problems in isolation.
Possible Formats include:
Pre-recorded video (20 min); Skype (20 min); Conference Presentations (20 min); Written Papers (3,000 words)
Deadline for Abstract submission: 1st December 2017

This conference wants to discuss whether, and to what extent, are the global society and space moving toward a state of generalised and planetary, if creeping, apartheid – borrowing on ideas of Agier (2014), Brenner (2013), and Yiftachel (2009). Settler colonialism is becoming a global and transnational phenomenon (Veracini 2010; Wolfe 1999), apartheidisation represents one of its forms in a continuous relationship with other political forces/processes, and in the consolidation of multiple (in)visible borders.
The set of questions to discuss includes, but is not limited to:
When: 9th-11th May 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal
