AUM 2013

The aim of AUM2013 was to report and review new model applications in assessing policy options in an economically and financially uncertain world. We focussed on flexible and adaptable urban development that demands system--level thinking.  

The symposium welcomed all model types and styles, from conceptual experiments to practical policy appraisal. The scale of models ranged from megalopolitan, metropolitan, city, urban district to neighbourhood.  Because of the symposium’s direct policy relevance, we attracted a broad academic, professional, policy--‐making and local community audience.  We also devoted  a proportion of the session slots to papers by young researchers and graduating PhD students – their papers were placed in themed sessions along with those by leading scholars and practitioners.

The Scientific Committee for AUM consists of Prof Marcial Echenique, Prof Mike Batty, and Prof Michael Wegener. The convenors are Dr Ying Jin and Dr Tony Hargreaves.
