ISUF will hold an international conference in Artimino, next to Florence, Italy, into the XVI century Medicean Villa, on 21, 22 and 23 of November.

Proposals should have the following format: name of author(s), affiliation, postal address, e-mail address, telephon number, fax number, title of paper and an abstract of about 250 words. The deadline for the receipt of proposals is 1 July 2008.

The number of places at the conference will be limited and acceptance for attendance will be on a first come, first served basis. Placement on the programme will be communicated to applicants by 15 July 2008, and will be contingent upon advance registration. Details are available on ISUF’s website (www.urbanform.on) from 1 of April. Definitive papers should be submitted by 15 of September 2008.
