RSAI World Congress - First CFP

Dear RSAI members, 

We are particularly glad to invite you all to join the global regional science community for the 14th edition of the World Congress of the RSAI in Kecskemét, Hungary, from Apr. 8 through 11, 2024. The congress' main theme is "Sustainable regional economic growth: global challenges and new regional development trajectories

The conference is jointly organized by the RSAI and the Hungarian section of ERSA (MRTT), and hosted by John Von Neumann University, courtesy of the LOC, chaired by Prof. József Kárpáti and Prof. Balázs Forman. 

The meeting is open to the world-wide regional science community and aims to bring together the key elements of multidisciplinary regional science research and to provide a scientific platform for presenting and discussing research at the frontiers of spatial sciences.  

Topics such as agglomeration economies, urban-rural relations, migration, spatial and resources allocation, border effects, urbanization, sustainable cities, mobility, land use, environmental quality, disaster management, energy transition, cultural heritage, poverty, segregation, spatial modelling are some of the important issues covered in the 2024 RSAI World Congress. In addition, we welcome special sessions on a number of other topics. 

The congress will host countless exciting events, including special sessions and semi-plenary policy sessions. Also, we have four confirmed keynote speakers: Prof. Özge Öner (Cambridge University, UK; ERSA), Prof. Eduardo Haddad, University of Sao Paulo, Brazil; LARSA); Prof. Hee-Jung Jun, Sungkyunkwan University, Korea; PRSCO; and Prof. Sarah A.
