CNU is proud to launch the 2014 New Urban Research program, an opportunity to share and present your academic work to the New Urbanist community.

Since 2008 at CNU XVI in Austin, CNU has showcased innovative academic papers at the annual Congress. We are now accepting academic papers representing the selected topics for this year:

  • New Urbanism & Transportation
  • Urban Design Education
Papers that focus New Urbanism & Transportation should undertake critical discussion and practice of New Urbanism with respect to transportation. Topics include (but are not limited to) performance measures, travel and traffic behavior/psychology, road safety, transit networks, bikeway networks, street vitality, and highways to boulevards.

For papers dealing with Urban Design Education, CNU is looking for academic investigations that address questions of tradition and/or innovation in the education of urban design postulants or in the construction and deployment of responsive urban design programs.

Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of a distinguished group of professionals and scholars from around the world. Final selection will be based on the paper's depth of content, demonstration of methodological rigor, contribution and advancement to the topic of the year, and overall significance to the practice of urban design.

Winners will present their papers at CNU 22 in Buffalo, June 4-7, 2014 and have their papers published on the CNU.org. For any questions, please contact us at callforpapers@cnu.org. Follow the links below for full details.
