Designing Cities – Principles and practices of city planning in the past and present
CALL FOR PAPERS
AACCP (Architecture, Archaeology and Contemporary City Planning) is a multidisciplinary and progressive network, which has gathered together researchers, experts and practitioners from various fields to discuss topics related to urban development and city planning since 2014. One of the main aims of the network is to promote collaboration between different ac- tors and increase understanding of the profitable co-existence of the past, present and future in urban environments.
With this task in mind, we are happy to invite you to the eighth AACCP symposium organized in collaboration with the Finnish Institute in the Middle East in Beirut, Lebanon in April 27– 30 and May 1, 2020.
With the theme Designing Cities – Principles and practices of city planning in the past and present we are inviting contributors to present papers that fall within the cross section of archi- tecture, archaeology and city planning and are related, but not limited, to the following topics:
Urban development, redevelopment and regeneration
Visions, ideas and realizations – principles in practice
The role, (mis)use and utilisation of heritage in city planning and building
Collaboration between city planners, architects, archaeologists and developers
Public–private–people partnership in urban planning
Climate crisis, cities and cultural heritage
Interrelationship between public and private spaces
Production of urban space from social perspective
Land use, transportation and traffic
Functionality, sustainability and attractivity of cities

You may also participate in the meeting without a paper. In this case too, we would appreciate your contact.
The programme consists of presentations and discussions, excursions in and outside Beirut as well as social activities which have proved to be very fruitful and to bring interesting ideas for new kind of research and collaboration. The full programme will be published by Febru- ary 10, 2020 together with the acceptance of papers.
