Forma civitatis, call for papers

febbraio 2nd, 2014

CALL FOR PAPERS 2014 (deadline june 30 2014)

FORMA CIVITATIS: International journal of urban and territorial morphological studies (IJUTMS), issue 1, 2014

CALL FOR PAPERS (deadline june 30, 2014)

Large models in small urban settlements

Hill-top towns are typical in most of Europe in an historical phase that starts from VIIIth cent. until XVth. cent. AD. Prior to the Xth cent. fortification of towns, called by historians  “incastellamento”,  several settlements seem to reoccupy archaic sites, moving from the valleys to the hill-tops and modifying the social structure of former villages. Many of these settlements today need to be preserved but also to be developed, so the study of their formation process is useful also for the contemporary development.

  • Which models were adopted in the ancient design process, do some of the models derive from larger settlements ?
  • Is the small urban hill-top/hill-side settlement phenomena general through Europe ?
  • Are there similar phenomena elsewhere (e.g.  Machu Picchu, native Northern American settlements, Japanese Castle towns, jokamachi, Viking and Saxon Emporia)?
  • Where, in Europe, and why does it start earlier/later ?
  • Which relationships can be found between climate, economy, land  ownership, territorial morphology, social structure and city form?
  • How are such identified (new or old/adapted) social structures expressed in the urban and territorial structures?
  • What differences can be found in the form and structure of different types of small towns, villages, villes, hamlets, wicks, vici, castles etc. if compared to the local territorial morphology.

The journal editors invite participation by interested academics and professionals. Proposals for papers should be in English and should preferably not exceed 20000 characters with an English abstract in less than 1000 characters and up to five keywords.

  • Before submitting a paper please read carefully the Notes for contributors
  • Papers must be submitted online using the paper template
  • Papers will be valued by a double blind peer review process
  • The papers should not contain the name of the author, which should be instead uploaded separately using the Author template.

ISUF 2015 – Call for papers (deadline 15 January 2015)

gennaio 30th, 2014

ISUF 2015 – International Conference. City as organism: new visions for urban life.

22-26 September 2015.

Faculty of Architecture, ‘Sapienza’ University of Rome, Rome, Italy

Call for papers (deadline 15 January 2015)

Conceptions of the city have changed significantly in recent years. The character of major infrastructural, residential, commercial and manufacturing developments suggests that current challenges may be a great deal more than a blip in the course of history. Some would argue that the dialectic between the desire to restore the organicity of urban form and the incoherent reality of the actual city is at the core of some of the finest projects and plans that have been developed. Is this a line of thought that is practicable in urban morphological research and practice? Or should we accept the incoherence of cities as amalgams of fragments? A central theme of the Conference is the ‘reading’ of existing cities in the light of a possible new organicity, comparing viewpoints from different disciplines; from architecture to history and from geography to urban planning. Discussions will deal with a variety of scales, from the territorial to the urban, and from the entire city and constellations of cities to the scale of the individual building. The Twenty-Second International Seminar on Urban Form (ISUF 2015), hosted in Rome by the Faculty of Architecture of ‘Sapienza’ University, will take place in Valle Giulia, via Antonio Gramsci 53, 00197, Rome, Italy, from 22 to 26 September 2015. The theme of the conference is ‘City as organism: new visions for urban life’. Scales and topics to be covered include:

Territorial scale

New and historical landscapes

Infrastructural networks

Territorial geography

Urban organism scale

Urban growth and fringe belts

Contemporary design for historical cities

Urban aesthetics and new tendencies in urban design


Urban fabric scale

Urban morphology and urban regeneration

Reading and designing urban fabric

Urban form and meaning

Urban knots

Building scale

New design methodologies

Architectural heritage preservation methods

Modern legacies

Modern constructions and Mediterranean identity

The organizers and the Council of ISUF invite participation by interested academics and professionals. Proposals for papers should take the form of abstracts of papers. They should be prepared in the following format: title of paper, author(s) name, affiliation, full postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, 3-5 key words, conference topic/scale and a 250-word abstract, in a MS Word file (.doc) using the abstract template available on the website (font: Times New Roman). Proposals should be uploaded on the conference site after registration. Abstracts of papers must be received before 15 January 2015. Notification of whether abstracts have been accepted will be provided by 1 March 2015. Those whose abstracts have been accepted will be required to pay a registration fee by 15 May 2015 to have their papers included in the conference programme. The registration fee of €300 (students: €200) includes 12 months’ membership of ISUF and 3 issues of the journal Urban Morphology, conference cocktail, coffee breaks and gala dinner. Following acceptance of abstracts, submission of papers (not exceeding 4000 words) is required. They should be received by 30 May 2015. Authors should consult the notes for the guidance of contributors to Urban Morphology, available on the ISUF website (, or in recent copies of that journal, before preparing their papers. Selected papers may be published after the conference. The official conference language is English. There will be a New Researchers’ Forum, in which researchers new to the field are invited to take part. New researchers should indicate when they submit their abstracts whether they would like to be included in the New Researchers’ Forum. Post-conference excursions will take place in Rome, Hadrian’s Villa, (Tivoli) and to the historical town of Todi.

The Conference Scientific Committee comprises:

Giancarlo Cataldi (University of Florence, Italy), Michael Conzen (University of Chicago, USA), Kai Gu (University of Auckland, New Zealand), Ivor Samuels (ISUF, UK), Jean-Francois Lejeune (University of Miami, USA), Renato Masiani (“Sapienza” University of Rome, Italy), Vítor Oliveira (University of Oporto, Portugal), Piero Ostilio Rossi (“Sapienza” University of Rome, Italy), Jeremy Whitehand (University of Birmingham, UK).
