      Call for articles

      Website "European City" (www.europeancity.cz) has issued a call for
      articles on "Motion in the City".

      Motion and process modify the urban environment and provide
      fascinating scope for those interested in the field of urban studies.
      Both repeated and routine motion are important in understanding the
      functioning principles behind single urban localities and also whole
      metropolitan regions. Migration, commuting, financial flows and the
      flux of ideas. All these motions are the beats of the city and in
      certain sense may be seen as the substance of the urban setting.
      Motion can be evaluated from the perspectives of different academic
      fields; many questions about the contemporary development of the city
      reveal themselves. How has urban motion changed over the last decades?
      What are the effects of technological innovation, in the field of
      transport and the transfer of information, on the urban milieu? What
      is the progress of intra-urban, internal and international migration
      into cities? How do the different parts of a city differ in terms of
      the rhythms and everyday motions of its population?
