Rodrigo Firmino is an Associate Professor in Urban Management at the Pontifical Catholic University (PUCPR) in Curitiba, Brazil, and a CNPq (Brazil’s National Council for Scientific and Technological Development) Research Fellow. "Besides the hype and enthusiasm surrounding the possibilities of an increasing capacity for central control of the urban environment justified by the dream of smart urbanism, the city is also made up of a series of scattered networks of technologies and practices."
The University of Oslo in cooperation with Nordic Migration Research and the Norwegian Network for Migration Research welcomes you to The 18th Nordic Migration Conference. This interdisciplinary and international conference takes place every two years, and will this time take place in Oslo.
Simin Davoudi, Professor of Environmental Policy & Planning at School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, and Associate Director of the Institute for Sustainability at Newcastle University will critically review different methodologies that have been employed to define the city-region before focusing on the prevailing conception of the city-region as a functional economic space and the dominant top-down methodology which is used for defining its boundaries.
Oslo is expanding: about 150 000 new inhabitants are expected to live within its boundaries before 2030, and at least as many in its surroundings. Researchers, planners and politicians are invited to present knowledge and ideas on the challenges raised by urban growth.
The Conference is free and open to all.
*Registration is closed*

Jeremy Freese (Northwestern, USA) gjester AKS-seminaret i november 2010. Freese er professor i sosiologi ved Northwestern University i Chicago, og er kjent som den for tiden ledende ekspert på sosiologiens og samfunnsvitenskapens respons til utviklingen i moderne genetikk og sosiobiologi.

Hvordan utvikles ulikhet i utdanning over tid? Hvilke mekanismer er med? Hvordan samvirker disse mekanismene? Manzo bruker agentbaserte simuleringsmodeller til å gjenskape ulikhetsmønstre i Frankrike og Italia.
Til daglig er Gianluca Manzo forsker ved CNRS på Sorbonne i Paris.
