The subject matter of articles can cover a number of areas, including: spatial planning policy and practice, the economy, balanced regional development, cross-border collaborative initiatives, renewable energy and the green economy, shared services, housing, health, education, marine spatial planning, the environment, governance (reform) and evidence-informed planning.

Those interested in submitting a paper should forward a 300-word abstract to John Driscoll, Director at driscoll@iclrd.org by close of business on Friday, 19th July 2013.

While articles can relate to the island of Ireland or overseas, all must have a spatial planning focus.
