"Cities of Tomorrow: Framing the Future" has been chosen as the focal topic for the Sixth Urban Research and Knowledge Symposium to be held in Barcelona, Spain from October 8-10, 2012. The event aims to convene researchers, practitioners and policymakers to discuss the synergies and tradeoffs between urbanization and economic growth, social inclusion, spatial planning, governance, and environmental sustainability. The key question throughout the event will be how policymakers can make difficult decisions today that will prevent "lock-ins" at later stages of development.
