City+, an urban studies research network led by early career researchers, is organizing annual international conferences for early career researchers and PhD students on urban studies. The first event, City+ 2017 @ Cambridge, was launched at University of Cambridge, followed by City+ 2018 @ London at University College London and City+ 2019 @ Delft at Delft University of Technology. To date, our conferences have attracted approximately 260 delegates coming from a number of universities and organizations and from Asia, Europe and North America, demonstrating the conference’s potential to become a good platform to share research experiences, provide cooperation opportunities and address increasingly complex urban concerns from multiple perspectives.

This year City+ 2021 @ Milan will be held on October 30 at Polytechnic University of Milan. The Conference is held by the Department of Architecture and Urban Studies (DAStU), by the organizers with diverse backgrounds from its three Ph.D. Programs: Urban Planning, Design and Policy (UPDP), Preservation of the Architectural Heritage (PAH), and Architectural, Urban and Interior Design (AUID). Serving as a platform, City+ 2021 @ Milan is expected to facilitate young researchers to work closely at the forefront of urban studies through disseminating their research, receiving valuable feedbacks, expanding academic networks and boosting potential cooperation.

Within the theme Modeling a Resilient and Smart Urban Life”, this conference aims to demonstrate the different aspects of modeling in urban studies.

► Theme 1 Smart city and beyond
► Theme 2 New form of participation
► Theme 3 Low Carbon and inclusive cities
► Theme 4 Active travel and urban mobility
► Theme 5 Protection and reuse of cultural heritage
