CALL – summary

Territories are both a social construct and a materiality observed by different disciplinary fields. This broad interdisciplinarity is a difficult, yet necessary, pioneer front. Another frontier to be crossed is the all too frequent gulf between researchers and the actors of territorial development. Territorial data are a field that offers opportunities for fertile debate. The second international CIST conference aims to clear new and uncharted ground in this area. The call for papers covers six central topics.

Topic 1 – Local data, citizen data, social demand

Topic 2 – Regional integration and territorial cohesion: a comparative perspective

Topic 3 – Critical approaches to mobility, territoriality, territorialization

Topic 4 – Territorial science: the pioneer fronts of interdisciplinarity

Topic 5 – Images of territories. Media and representations

Topic 6 – Territorial Information Systems to address new scientific problems or social practices
