This main session at the 10th International Conference on Urban History in Ghent (1-4 September 2010) aims to present a state of art and new directions in the research of the Atlantic port-towns in the Middle Ages. The general aim is to bring together historians who have been working in this field of research to share their knowledges and to increase the awareness on the diversity of the ongoing projects that have ports as their main field of study.

Some suggested topics include:
- Sources of historical knowledge and new methods of research

- Facilities and port infrastructures
- Urban networks, connectivity and maritime traffic
- The functions of the townports and the jurisdictional control of the coastal and maritime space
