CHANCES is an international conference that aims to explore, from a multidisciplinary perspective, the fragile but continuous urban transformation through the effective contribution of culture, nature and technology.

The aim of this conference is to provide a deeper understanding of urban transformations’ research and practices, focusing on the use, re-use, design, renovation and innovative governance and management of public spaces, urban commons and buildings.

We believe that these thoughts will largely contribute to shape and increase sustainable design, construction and planning in constant cities’ transformation.

Contributions can build on reflections and studies concerning current or historical approaches that are changing or drastically changed the cities we lived in.


Selected papers will be published in 2020 on a special issue of the SCIRES-IT Jornal (, indexed in SCOPUS  and in WoS Core Collection (ESCI) and ranked by ANVUR as a “Scientific journal” for Areas 10-11-13-14 and rated “CLASS A” Journal for the Area 08 – Architecture.
