Re-City 2017, the 2nd International City Regeneration Congress, under the theme “(Im)Possible Cities” will be arranged in Tampere, Finland, on 24–25 August 2017. The Congress provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, students and practitioners in the fields of urban planning, architecture, traffic planning and logistics, ecology, urban history, informatics, health sciences, economics and business, political sciences, social sciences and humanities.

The congress seeks especially for good and bad examples of real city regeneration cases. However, more theoretical and imaginary approaches are also welcomed.
