Please control our website to see the last updates

THEMES
The conference will have different tracks based on the 'Subject, Identity and Diversity' and 'Interactions'.

Special Focus 1: Subject, Identity and Diversity.
The focus point of Subject, Identity and Diversity encompasses the whole history of philosophy from ancient Greek to the twenty-first-century philosophy, from eastern to western tradition. It also draws the attention of a wide range of commentators, such as continental and analytic philosophers, historians and pure theoretical interpreters and also gender philosophers.
Special Focus 2: Interactions among Medieval and Renaissance Philosophy- On Interpretation of the Aristotelian Philosophy
Aristotle is one the most influential philosophers in the Western tradition. Aristotle's works shaped centuries of philosophy from Late Antiquity through the Renaissance and his theories were serving as a stimulus to almost every area of philosophy. The Medieval and the Renaissance periods are considered to be the two significant historical periods in the evaluation and re-evaluation of the Aristotelian philosophy.
Special Focus 3: Interactions in Modern Philosophy
Philosophy can be described as an interaction centre of infinite number of dynamics that progressed and differentiated by affecting each other throughout the history. Although the history of philosophy examines philosophers, texts and periods individually, it has also been the history of interactions, i.e. affecting and being affected. The historical, multifaceted identity of the philosophy was also shaped by the correlations between philosophy and other disciplines as well as among the philosophers, themselves.

CPUD '16 / CITY PLANNING AND URBAN DESIGN SUMMIT AND CONFERENCE / Cities and City Plans: The Past and The Future

Special Focus: TRANSPORTATION, ENERGY AND ECONOMY
In the new millennium, the politics, needs, priorities and planning itself are in constant change and obviously new challenges in terms of city planning are put forward. Today many cities are working to encourage populations to return to their urban core through the creation of revitalization efforts to distressed neighborhoods and old downtown centers. Industrial zones are moving, life styles are changing and growth and immigration in mega cities are still an issue. Given the importance of cities as significant social, political and economic centers, the rethinking of planning comes at a principal moment when urban policy must be able to plan for a sustainable future in relation to the individual needs of neighborhoods, individuals and established urban systems.
