Session title:
Perspectives on (Sub)Urban Sprawl, urban form/urban growth, Smart Growth, Inner City Developments: Issues, Analysis and Critiques
Session Description:
This session will provide a broad forum for applied and theoretical research on urban sprawl, suburban/inner city development. Topics may include sustainability, smart growth, environmental issues, use of remote sensing and GIS in urban environment, urban theory, spatial analysis, local economic development issues and land use planning among others.

Context and Objectives
Urban growth takes many forms. Over the years, there have been various attempts to theorize the resulting spatial patterns of land use in American cities. Whether the concentric ring theories, the bid-rent theory, the sectoral model, the multiple nuclei model or the more modern urban realms approach, what is clear is that unprecedented urban growth on the urban fringe has led to dispersion of settlements away from central cities. This dispersed urban development is often referred as sprawl. Urban sprawl has increased in the U.S. over last few decades with unintended and often irreversible consequences such as city central decline, increased reliance on the use of the automobile, and the loss of open space. The discourse on urban sprawl issues is closely related to the concepts of sustainability, smart growth, environmental issues, local economic development and land use planning. This session will bring together researchers with different perspectives on urban and suburban (re)development issues. Presentations providing critical analysis, case studies, and discourse analysis, or addressing issues of measurement and analysis are welcome.
Whenever possible, please go through the online submission, and then send to Sunhui Sim (ssim@una.edu) an email containing: (1) Your name, presentation title, and abstract; and (2) The PIN Number" assigned to you by the online registration system.

Best wishes
