Next to the scholarly exchange, the conference was also organized in order to establish an international cooperation among urban historians from different fields, that is all scholars with an interest in the history of towns. The conference was therefore meant to create a more lasting cooperation, which we intend to discuss in more details in Antwerp, on occasion of the EAUH-conference in September 2020, which was postponed until September 2021.

The program reflects the transdisciplinary approach of many papers. The conference will be published.
