The next conference of ISUF will be held in Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais, Brazil, 29 August—1 September, 2007, co-hosted by the Federal University of Minas Gerais and the Federal University of Ouro Preto. The theme of the conference is Urban Morphology in a Global Era. Topics on which proposals are particularly welcome include: urban morphology as a field of enquiry; urban landscapes in conservation areas; the evolution of non-Western cities; new urban forms in the twenty-first century; and traditional urban forms.
The organizers and the Council of ISUF invite participation by interested academics and professionals. Proposals of papers should be received on or before 19 January 2007. They should be prepared in the following format: name of author(s), affiliation, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, title of paper, and a 300-word abstract. They should be addressed to Professor Staël de Alvarenga Pereira Costa, Escola de Arquitetura/UFMG - Departamento de Urbanismo, Rua Paraíba 697 sala 404C, Bairro dos Funcionários, 30 130 140 – Belo Horizonte/MG, Brazil. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Proposers of papers will be notified by 16 February 2007 whether their proposals have been accepted.
It is hoped to organize a two-day post-conference charette/workshop, in which the concepts and methods of urban morphology will be considered in the light of the evidence of Ouro Preto.
