The 7th International Conference of Contemporary Affairs in Architecture and Urbanism, ICCAUA2024, is being jointly organized by Alanya University in collaboration with Anant National University. The conference will feature both in-person sessions at Alanya University and online sessions mutually will be hosted by Anant National University. The conference brings together all the theories, manifestos and methodologies on contemporary architecture and urban spaces to raise the understanding of the future of architecture and urban planning. Overall, the International Conference of Contemporary Affairs in Architecture and Urbanism ICCAUA2024 aimed to establish a bridge between theory and practice in the built environment. Thus, it reports on the latest research findings and innovative approaches, and methodologies for creating, assessing, and understanding contemporary built environments.

A broad outline of the conference's scope includes peer-reviewed original research articles, case and technical reports, reviews and analyses, Papers, short communications, and notes to the editor.  All scholars, and practitioners, professionals, researchers, and policymakers with a common interest to study in the field of architecture and urban design from different disciplines, such as Art, Architecture, Landscape, civil engineering, Urban Plane and Urban Design are welcome to share their research. The Conference only will publish research of the highest quality and impact.
