The meeting will take place from January 25th to 27th, 2012, at the Catalonian Politechnic University (UPC) in Barcelona

The Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB) and the Department of Urbanism and Regional Planning (DUOT) in collaboration with the Municipality of Barcelona, the Provincial Government of Barcelona, Casa Asia and the other participating universities of the IFoU network will organize the conference within the framework of the International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU).

The conference aims to generate an exchange between the academic and the professional debate, to investigate opportunities and risks for the sustainable touristical development and to discuss visions, concepts and best practices. In this framework causes, reasons and dependencies of worldwide transformation processes will be analyzed and planning strategies and design concepts for a more sustainable development of tourism will be explored.

During the conference, scientific results, as well as design concepts and technical solutions will be presented; theoretical approaches will be discussed as well as professional experiences and best practices. With this in mind, the target group would include a range of different backgrounds: architects and urban planners; policy makers, students and researchers from different disciplines; managers and politicians, all of whom are involved in or interested in design, planning and the management of touristic developments.

The deadline for sending abstracts was extended.
