The aim of AUM2013 is to report and review new model applications in assessing policy options in an economically and financially uncertain world. We would like to focus on flexible and adaptable urban development that demands system-level thinking. The symposium welcomes all model types and styles, from conceptual experiments to practical policy appraisal. The scale of models may range from megalopolitan, metropolitan, city, urban district to neighbourhood. Because of its direct policy relevance, we welcome a broad academic, professional, policy-making and local community audience. We also aim to devote a third of the session slots to papers by young researchers and graduating PhD students – their papers will be placed in themed sessions along with those by leading scholars and practitioners.
