Conference Format

The PLPR 2014 conference will run for 2.5 days, with optional workshops over the two preceding days (see below). On Friday after the conference we will offer a planning tour of Haifa and the adjacent Arab (Druze) villages. Conference plenary sessions will host leading international scholars in the fields of planning law and property rights. Paper presentations will be organized in parallel sessions.  PRESENTERS: For guidelines on preparing for the parallel sessions, click here.

New Format: Optional workshops 
The conference will have an innovative format. In addition to the usual 2.5-day conference, we offer an optional two additional days of workshops on current challenges in the realm of planning, law or property rights. Participants will be able to share knowledge with Israeli decision makers, citizen NGO’s and professionals and will visit relevant sites.
