RSPP Workshop on Pandemics, Location and Mobility, November 1-2, 2021, Ponta Delgada, Azores, Portugal

The RSPP Workshop on Pandemics, Location and Mobility mobilizes members of the Editorial Team, Guest Editors and Editorial Board of the journal and is open to the participation of participants that want to take part in the workshop and submit a paper to a special issue of the journal.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on human activities around the world. Mobility, the vehicle of social interaction par excellence, was the first sector to be affected, given its close and critical link with the spread of the pandemic. The consequences for mobility and the subsequent limitations of the range of movements continue today at variable spatial scales, according to the progress on vaccination programs and the health indicators/dashboard of the moment. Clearly, the links are complex and the causalities are at this stage difficult to establish.
This structural pattern has had an impact on mobility practices at international, regional and local levels, changing the volume, geography and modes of travel used. International travel has fallen drastically. Public transport has been penalized in relation to individual modes, especially the car, although walking and cycling are increasing in some cities, also benefiting from new urban planning policies (tactical urbanism measures). The COVID-19 pandemic also seems to be having an impact on the long-run location of households and businesses, which is likely to change urban forms.
