The Centre for Regional Geography within the Faculty of Geography, Babeş-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, in collaboration with the Romanian Academy, Cluj Subsidiary, Geography Section and the South Muntenia Regional Development Agency, has the honour and pleasure to invite scholars, researchers, practitioners, decision makers, PhD students, and others interested in the complex issues and challenges of regional development, in the identification and management of territorial disparities or in spatial planning to the 7th edition of the International Conference on REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND TERRITORIAL DISPARITIES. The conference will be held in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, on the 15th and 16th of October 2016.


Today’s world is increasingly characterised by crucial challenges, such as globalisation, climate changes, economic crisis, political fractures, environmental problems, social conflicts within disfavoured communities. All these issues are part of the regional development field.

The conference is meant to establish, together with the conference participants, a common framework for regional development for the years to come by anticipating future challenges. We cordially invite all colleagues, specialists, practitioners from various fields and representing different institutions to participate with papers and presentations in order to share their experiences, create or renew contacts and partnerships, and reflect together upon the state-of-the-art of different territories and upon the past and future of regional development.

A book sale and exhibition will be also organized on the 15th of October to offer the conference attendees the opportunity to exchange or purchase some of the latest titles published in the field of Geography and Regional Studies. Therefore, we encourage all authors interested in sharing their research results to participate with books and materials to be exhibited or sold during the conference breaks. No fee will be charged for displaying the books and materials.

For further information about the conference, please access the Conference website or send an e-mail to one of the contact persons.

We are looking forward to welcome you to our conference in Cluj-Napoca!
