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):
- Active mobility, walkable, bikeable streets
- How the built environment (or nature) affects health
- Neighborhood plazas, sociable squares
- Streets for people, “Eyes on the Street”
If you wish to present a paper, please submit a 250 word abstract for consideration before November 33, 2017. Please submit online here and take a look at the additional information.
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

Gothenburg, Sweden: 10th-14th July 2018 (Registration opens in December)
The theme of the IRSPM 2018 conference at the University of Edinburgh Business School, in Edinburgh (Scotland), is creating and co-creating value in public service delivery. One of the key debates in the public management community is about the ‘value’ that is created by public services. This debate has included elements concerning, among others:
- What this value comprises and for whom (services users, citizens, or the community)
- How is it understood by different stakeholders
- The balance and potential conflicts both between individual and public value and between the values underpinning public services and the value that they add to citizens and society
- The processes through which it is designed into public service systems, and organizations
- How it might be evaluated
To submit an abstract please visit https://irspm2018.exordo.com/login and follow the instructions. Authors will be notified of the outcome by 24th November 2017. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact: email@example.com.
