Sustainable Urban and Regional Development Conference: Research and Policy for the Asia Pacific Rim
December 7-9, 2018
Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province, China
This international conference is hosted by the Governments of Zhaoqing, China, Guangzhou Province, Tsinghua University, Renmin University of China, and The Regional Science Academy (TRSA). Zhaoqing, the host of the conference, is a city located in the Pearl River Delta about 40 miles upstream from Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong Province. The Pearl River Delta has nearly 100 million residents and is one of the top three economically productive regions in China. It offers the right environment for an international gathering on sustainable spatial development. We are seeking participants who would like to present a paper at the Conference.
This is the second conference hosted by this group, with the first conference held at and hosted by Renmin University of China in Beijing in 2017. Some 150 papers were presented at the first conference and a selection of these contributions formed the contents for a special edition in one of the top regional science journals. At the forthcoming conference in December 2018, authors from several Pacific Rim Countries including from North and South America and Europe as well, and of course, from China and nearby countries will attend and present papers centering on the above theme. We expect about 200+ attendees this year.
Those wishing to present a paper should contact: Roger R. Stough, Vice President TRSA, Peter Nijkamp, Vice President TRSA, or Karima Kourtit, Executive Director TRSA, at one of the following email addresses.
