REAL CORP 2022
27th International Conference on Urban Planning
14-16 NOVEMBER 2022
Mobility, Knowledge and Innovation Hubs in Urban and Regional Development
Mobility hubs are far from being limited to their function as transport hubs. They are multifunctional and versatile places of encounter. In places where many people come together, information and knowledge are exchanged and new ideas are developed. Since mankind has become sedentary, such hubs have formed where the exchange of people, goods, but also ideas and knowledge takes place. With the rise of cities, this process has intensified and today, when almost 60 % of the world's population lives in cities, dealing with this centre function is more important than ever.
New challenges keep emerging that keep us busy maintaining and developing the functions of such hubs:
REAL CORP 2022 addresses the links between society's innovative achievements and the confronting demands of our environment, cities and settlements. In order to achieve acceptable sustainable development, spatial planning and related disciplines need to carefully address current trends and influence them with appropriate governance mechanisms to maintain and improve the quality of life, but also to decisively address the concerns of our ecosystem. We therefore invite contributions from all disciplines involved in urban development in order to analyse the challenges for the future of urban spaces in a holistic manner. In addition to science-based contributions, we also welcome practice-based reports on short-term measures and/or long-term strategies for urban and regional development.
These are the main topics REAL CORP 2022 is going to deal with:
1. Sustainable mobility – how can transport and the environment be brought under one roof?
2. Climate change and climate protection – how many minutes to 12 is it, how do we need to change our approach to the ecosystem?
For all those topics REAL CORP 2022 asks especially about
(1) Smart Development of Spaces in the Era of Ageing Populations
In co-operation with and under co-ordination of TU Kaiserslautern, Department of Spatial and Environmental Planning.
Digitalisation changes opportunities and infrastructures in all areas of life, but still cities are ahead of rural areas. Conversely, ageing, as part of the demographic change, is more ad-vanced in smaller towns and villages. The interaction results in a polarisation of urban and rural areas and combined with a large cohort of retiring baby boomers, disruptive develop-ments are taking place. The complexity creates uncertainty among the re-sponsible local actors and requires new methods and instruments in spatial planning. However, most municipal actors have so far made inadequate use of existing data and information as well as digital media. In addition, the needs, behaviour patterns and potentials of baby boomers (and other cohorts) are largely unknown.
We aim at discussing evidence-based, data- and AI-supported and participatory decision support systems (DSS)to support municipal stakeholders. With the socio-spatial approach, we ask for integrated planning for infrastructures, services, accessibility, capacities and the use of finances.
We are planning two sessions of 90 minutes each, covering two major areas of this topic: on the one hand, the socio-spatial, target group-specific and accessibility aspects, and on the other hand, the issues around data, availability and heterogeneity of data, (administrative) data processing, results, decision making, data protection and ethical use of data in urban planning.

(2) Airport Cities and Mobility Hubs
In co-operation with and under co-ordination of Vienna International Airport.
Invitation for contributions on the topic of Airport Cities and Mobility Hubs
We plan to deal mainly with the following topics:
(1) An airport and an airport city as a major workplace in a region recruits its employees from the surrounding area.
How do you want to contribute?

Accepted papers (reviewed and non-reviewed) are published in the conference proceedings and assigned a DOI. The call for papers (standard topics as well as special topics) remains open until 6 June 2022. ORal presentations without submission of a paper are also possible and of course we also welcome participants without presentation and paper!
To register and submit your abstract, please go to https://my.corp.at and sign up for conference participation. (If your abstract is not accepted, you may withdraw your registration free of charge. If your abstract is accepted, your registration is automatically confirmed.) As usual, all further information as well as all conference papers since 1996 are available at www.corp.at.
