Conference theme
The conference theme seeks to provide an opportunity for critical reflection upon aspects of urban transformation and planning histories from across the world, but also a forum uponwhich professional and academic knowledge and expertise may be shared in Istanbul, theEuropean Capital of Culture, 2010. Recently, Istanbul has provided the focus for a number of initiatives directed toward urban transformation, which have in turn brought a variety of chal-lenges addressed in the related domains of planning, urban governance, cultural and socialstructure, and historic preservation.Conference proposals are now invited to address one or more of the following sub-themes:
Urban transformation and planning history (concepts of urban transformation, planningcultures and planning models)
Urban transformation strategies (policies, tools, urban management and governance)
Urban transformation and the urban space (urban form and architecture, urban transfor-mation in heritage sites, landscapes, waterfronts and public spaces)
Urban transformation and land use (housing and squatter settlements, commercial and industrial districts, transportation and infrastructure)
Urban transformation and the society (social inclusion, social justice, urban poverty,gentrification)
Urban transformation and the economy (the political economy of urban transformation,finance and urban transformation)
Urban transformation and the environment (sustainable transformation, green interven-tions, disaster management, etc.)The IPHS Conference organizers also welcome proposals focusing upon other aspects of  planning history.

Conference announcement 
Conference venue and timing
The conference venue is the Taskisla Building, where the conference hosts, Istanbul TechnicalUniversity’s (ITU) Faculty of Architecture and ITU Urban and Environmental Planning and Research Center, are situated.The Taskisla Building was constructed between 1848 and 1853 as a military medical acad-emy for the Ottoman Army. The building plans, drawn by W. James Smith, were subsequentlymodified and the building’s function was changed to one of a military barracks in 1849. Thismodification was part of a construction plan that was intended to ensure the security of the areaaround the Dolmabahce Palace.The building was damaged in the earthquake of 1894 and was restored by architectRaimondo D’Aronco. In 1944, the building was handed over to the ITU and restored by archi-tects Paul Bonatz and Emin Onat. Teaching commenced in 1950 and the building was used bystudents enrolled in the Civil Engineering and Architecture faculties. In 1983, the building wasclassified as a first-degree historical monument.
