Cities & Networks
AAG 2019 | Washington DC
AAG 2019 | April 3-7, 2019 | Washington, DC
Session on CITIES AND NETWORKS
Organizers and Co-Sponsors –

International Geographical Union, Urban Geography Commission
The internal dynamics of cities can often be viewed as emerging from the interaction of multiple types of networks, including the social networks of people and the infrastructure networks of roads and utilities. At the same time, the dynamics of urban systems can also often be understood emerging from networks, including the economic and transportation networks that link cities into a world city network. Accordingly, research on cities and networks (a.k.a. urban networks) now spans multiple scales, topics, and disciplines. To explore the range of research on urban networks, we are pleased to host four sessions at AAG2019. Please note that the sessions are subject to change until the final AAG program has been issued. We hope you will join us in Washington DC.
