Dear Mr./Mrs.,

The deadline for Call for Abstracts for Re-City 2015 Congress is extended to May 15. Please notice also that the Early Bird Registration expires on April 30. There have been questions if participation without presenting paper is possible. It is possible, and probably most of the participants will not present papers, even if many of them do so. You can now follow us on Twitter @recity2015 and on facebook.com at recity2015. More information below and on our webpage www.recity2015.com. Apologies for possible cross-posting.

Best Regards,

Tampere University of Technology and University of Tampere welcome you to Re-City 2015 Congress 3-4 September 2015 in Tampere, Finland. The Congress provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners in the fields of urban planning, architecture, traffic planning and logistics, urban history, economics and business, political sciences, social sciences and humanities. The topic of the congress is "Future City - Combining Disciplines". This allows for a wide range of approaches concerning the regeneration of future cities and the challenges implied in their visioning and planning.

Keynote speakers include professor Robert A. Beauregard from Columbia University, professor Ali Madanipour from Newcastle University and professor Albena Yaneva from University of Manchester. We also have many splendid Finnish lecturers.

 The Congress has five themes:

Re-City 2015 invites papers on new approaches to these themes. Please send abstracts of approximately 300 words to info at recity2015.com by May 15. Abstracts will be peer-reviewed. The acceptance of abstracts will be announced to the writers on May 30 at the latest. Those, whose abstract is accepted, have then three possibilities: 1) presentation at the congress, 2) short paper (5-8 pages) and the presentation at the congress or 3) long paper (10-20 pages) and the presentation at the congress.
