CIST2020 – An Unprecedented Conference

The 5th CIST International Conference - Population, Time, Territories - initially planned on the Condorcet Paris-Aubervilliers campus finally welcomed from November 18th to 20th, 2020 over 340 participants... by videoconference!

During these three days, 5 plenary sessions and 34 parallel sessions took place in virtual rooms at a sustained pace. The videos will be online on the Canal U platform by February 2021.
Paul-André Rosental opened the conference with an inaugural lecture on "Territorial anchors, temporal dynamics and mobilities", chaired by Alain Blum (this video will be subtitled in English and Spanish).
Two COVID sessions were devoted to the way territorial sciences approach the Covid-19 pandemic, with various interventions presenting a panorama of research in 2020 on this theme, various tools for understanding and visualisation, and more macro approaches.
The 131 papers were distributed in the 16 thematic sessions and 2 varia sessions, dealing with decidedly very varied research on the triptych population-time-territories.
