The new deadline of the full paper for the authors of the abstracts that will be accepted has been set for November 1st, 2020.  

The selection of full papers will be published in the CPCL Series, a free and open-access online book series exploring cultural heritage, creative practices and the city. The book series is jointly edited by the Department of Architecture at the University of Bologna and the Chair of History of Architecture and Urbanism at the Technical University, Delft. CPCL Series is a project promoted by the European Journal of Creative Practices in Cities and Landscapes
