Since 2008, the Congress for the New Urbanism (CNU) has showcased innovative academic work at our annual Congress. Selected academics, researchers, and professionals are offered the opportunity to present their research at CNU's annual Congress for the New Urbanism.

In 2017, CNU accepted academic papers that evaluate and quantify the practices of New Urbanism. The highest priority was given to research that investigates the impacts and effectiveness of the last quarter-century of New Urbanist accomplishments and furthered the study of building sustainable, equitable, livable places. Special attention was paid to submissions that offer lessons to practitioners and policymakers alike.

CNU is currently not accepting research paper submissions. Please check back in Fall 2017 to learn about future submission opportunities.

Submissions

Papers are peer-reviewed by at least two members of a distinguished group of professionals and scholars from around the world. Final selection is based on the paper's depth of content, demonstration of methodological rigor, and contribution and advancement to the practice of New Urbanism.
