Dear colleagues,

The CITTA 14th Annual Conference on Planning Research will be held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, Portugal, on 17 June 2022, under the main topic “Safe, Equitable and Just Communities”.

The deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended until 6 May 2022. Full papers (optional) may be submitted by 30 June 2022.

We welcome contributions focused on (i) understanding the patterns, values, desires, needs, and behaviours associated with different communities and groups of population, (ii) stimulating community-led initiatives and public participation to assist policy- and decision-making and to ensure the success of these processes, (iii) delivering systematic outcome-driven approaches able to encompass and promote social welfare, trust, and fairness in the resolution of spatial planning and transport problems, and/or ( iv) deriving policies and actions to bridge the gaps between innovation and societal changes.

Conference sessions will be organized in four tracks:

  • Planning for social and environmental justice;
  • Equitable and just urban policies;
  • Accessible and inclusive transport systems and mobility services;
  • Safe and efficient transport systems.
