ACUMEN: Assembly for Comparative Urbanisation and the Material Environment

Digital methodologies for social research on processes of urban landscape development

12th and 13th of December 2012, Leeds, UK

ACUMEN will be hosted by the Centre for Spatial Analysis and Policy (CSAP), School of Geography, University of Leeds. It is funded by Digital Social Research Community Activities Funding Scheme of the NSDeSS, with the support of TALISMAN: Geospatial Data Analysis and Simulation.

ACUMEN will be an intensive meeting of minds focused on identifying the opportunities and challenges involved in enabling an emergent interdisciplinary research field. Its aim is to advance comparative methodologies for the social study of urbanisation processes through time and across cultures (i.e. prehistoric to contemporary) with particular connection to the material and/or built environment, aided by the use of digital technologies. It offers a rare opportunity to have extended learned discussions amongst peers in an intimate setting with appropriate focus.
