We are pleased to announce and invite you to participate in the 16th International Conference on Computational Urban Planning and Urban Management(CUPUM), Wuhan, China, 2019.


Participants have a choice of three possibilities: book chapters, conference papers, or conference posters:


+ Choice 1: Book Chapter (deadline November 30, 2018)

Approximately 25 contributions well-fitting to the central conference theme of 'Computational Urban Planning and Management for Smart Cities’ will be selected for inclusion in a book, published by Springer Publishers. These 25 chapters will be selected, based on the outcomes of a double blind review process by the Scientific Committee. Chapters should be between 4000 and 6000 words in length, including notes, figures, tables, references, et cetera. All chapters should contain at least an abstract (max 150 words), introduction, methodology section, conclusions, and recommendations.  The abstracts of the selected chapters will be included in the conference proceedings too. Inclusion of the contribution as a chapter in the book implies the transfer of its copyright to Springer Publishers. Moreover, it implies its presentation at the conference.

 

+ Choice 2: Conference Paper   (deadline February 15, 2019)

Besides book chapters it is possible to submit a paper for inclusion in the conference proceedings. The Local Committee of the CUPUM Conference will select these conference papers after a review process. Each paper should be between 4000 and 6000 words in length, including notes, figures, tables, references, et cetera. All selected papers should contain at least an abstract (max. 150 words), introduction, methodology section, conclusions, and recommendations.  The selected papers will be included in the digital conference proceedings.  The selection of the paper for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings also implies its presentation at the conference.

 

+ Choice 3: Conference Poster  (deadline February 15, 2019)

Posters can be selected for inclusion in the conference. The Local Committee of the CUPUM Conference will select these conference posters after a review process. Each poster should contain an extended abstract of between 400 and 800 words in length, including notes, figures, tables, references, et cetera.  The abstracts of the selected posters will be included in the conference proceedings.  The selected posters should be presented at the Conference. There will be a competition for the best poster, which will be selected by the CUPUM Board and will receive an official award.


All book chapters, conference papers, and posters include an abstract that contains a title, a short description of the proposed topic, sources of data, methods, and a discussion of the implications of the research for urban planning and urban management. All book chapters, conference papers, and conference posters should also contain keywords to identify the area of research. Moreover, all contributions should be accompanied by the name, affiliation, address, telephone number, and email address of each author.


At a later stage paper contributors to the conference will be asked for their interest to be included in a special issue of the following journals:


+ Environment and Planning B: Urban Analytics and City Science


A SSCI Journal published by Sage Publications LTD. Detailed information can be browsed through the website: https://journals.sagepub.com/home/epb
