Calling all academics! The annual call for academic paper submissions has been extended until Thursday, December 9, 2010, at the end of the day. CNU invites academic paper submissions for presentation at the 19th annual congress to be held in Madison from June 1-4, 2011.

The Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) is gearing up for CNU 19, which means it is time for the annual Call for Academic Papers. Every year, CNU asks for the submission of academic papers representing the most creative and innovative ideas in New Urbanism. Several papers are then selected for presentation at CNU’s annual Congress, which this year will be held in Madison, Wisconsin, from June 1-4, 2011. All submitted papers are critiqued and commented on by at least two reviewers. Last year, we received over twenty-five submissions and had nine academics present at the Congress.

We are particularly interested in papers that address Urban Agriculture and Bikeability, but all papers that feature discussions of New Urbanism are welcome.

CNU is also searching for reviewers for these academic papers. Reviewers should be familiar with New Urbanist projects and issues and be willing to thoughtfully review submitted papers. Each reviewer will be matched with one or more papers based on the reviewer's particular expertise. If you are interested in serving as a reviewer, please send a short description of your expertise to

Thank you for your time, energy, and commitment to New Urbanism. We hope to see you at CNU 19: “Growing Local,” from June 1-4, 2011, in Madison, Wisconsin.
