The TICYUrb (Third International Conference of Young Urban Researchers) was an international event that aimed to echo frontier research, artistic works and professional practice related to different urban contexts around the world, under an environment of vibrant dialog between academia and society.
TICYUrb was held in Lisbon from June 18th to June 22nd, 2018 at ISCTE-IUL.
The conference was split into seven tracks: Collectivecity (the right to the city: 50 years later), Productcity (the city as a product), Divercity (diversity in the city), Fractalcity (the city amid policies), Ucity (utopias and dystopias), TransFearcity (in-security, migrations and racism), Metacity (ways of thinking and making city). TICYUrb intended to act as a bridge between social, human, natural and all other scientific domains.
This event was a platform for sharing ongoing or recent work at the time, open debate and networking. In parallel with the conference sessions, there were open debates among young professional, exclusive networking sessions, and field excursions, among other activities.
TICYURB was a collaborative effort of the Centre for Research and Studies in Sociology (CIES-IUL), the Research Center on Socioeconomic Change and Territory (DINAMIA’CET-IUL), the Interdisciplinar Center of Social Sciences (CICS.NOVA), the Institute of Sociology – University of Porto (ISUP) and the School of Architecture of the University of Sheffield (SSoA).
