Greetings from ITS Surabaya



It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the CITIES International Conference 2021. This event is hosted by Urban and Regional Planning Department, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember, Surabaya. 

After 19 years of its establishment, the department has become one of the leading planning schools, further proven by this international conference. It is our great honour in particular and ITS in general that this event is trusted upon us. We believe that this opportunity will increase our reputation in the eye of the international academia. 

This year, CITIES, as an annual event, will be held for its 15th term. We believe that this conference has been and will continuously serve as a meeting platform for urban and regional planners, academia, practitioners, and researchers from around the world. We also credit this conference to be one of the media to discuss and share current topics in urban and regional planning.

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning – ITS Surabaya aims to explore the latest changes in planning paradigm whilst also exchanging recommendations on post-pandemic recovery plans and development agendas in order to better prepare ahead. Hence, this year’s ushered conference theme will be Post-Pandemic Cities: A Paradigm Shift?

I hope this conference will contribute to the development of cities and regions. Together with other academics, policy makers, practitioners, and other stakeholders, we are ready to face challenges in the future and be part of a team to build a city that is better, more comfortable, and more humane. I believe that this conference is a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and information in many aspects.
