We are pleased to invite you to attend the 7th International Urban Geographies of Post-Communist States Conference: A view on cities from elsewhere (i.e., the CAT-ference) to be held in Kyiv & Dnipro on 26th – 29th  September 2017.

  Cities After Transition (CAT) is the largest network of scholars primarily interested in urban issues regarding the ‘post-socialist’ countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the Former Soviet Union. Originally uniting geographers with an interest in “urban geographies of post-communist states” (hence the conference name), the network has now expanded into a truly multi-disciplinary event.

  CAT’s main goal is to facilitate and promote international scholarly contacts and cooperation within our field, and the bi-annual CAT-ferences are the main highlight of this endeavor.

  The 7th CAT-ference is preceded by six successful events – in Lund (2005), Stockholm-Tallinn (2007), Tartu (2009), Bucharest (2011), Tbilisi (2013) and Prague (2015). 

  Forms of participation. You may either propose full paper sessions, or submit individual paper abstracts to be assembled into thematic sessions by the organizing team. You may also participate without giving a presentation. Each paper presentation is expected to receive between 20 and 30 minutes (depending on the number of submissions and on the number of presentations included in the proposed sessions), including 5-10 minutes for discussions.

  Publication plans. Several international journal theme issues have been published on the basis of the materials presented at CAT-ferences or CAT workshops (including theme issues in 'Geografiska Annaler series B human geography', 'Cities', 'Geografie' and forthcoming theme issues in 'Eurasian Geography and Economics' and in the 'Czech Sociological Review'). We will honour this tradition.
