Dear All,

PUARL International Conference 2018 : "MIGRATION, REFUGEES, AND PATTERNS"
Portland, Oregon, USA
Friday October 26 – Sunday, October 28, 2018
Combined PUARL and PLoP: Wednesday 24 – Sunday 28
https://blogs.uoregon.edu/puarl2018/
https://refugee.uoregon.edu/

After the successful completion of the PUARL Regenerative City 2016 International Conference in San Francisco (https://blogs.uoregon.edu/puarl2016/) and the latest associated PURPLSOC World Conference in Austria, Europe in the Fall of 2017  (http://www.purplsoc.org/conference2017/) we are in the process of preparing The Ten Year Anniversary PUARL Conference for Fall 2018 in Portland, Oregon. We arehappy to announce that our PUARL symposia and conferences are in their tenth year of existence, and therefore, we intend to conduct a very special conference, including international, invited guests and a variety of events.

Furthermore, in this conference, we will address and explore an extremely important and highly critical topic of our times, that is, the ever-increasing refugee crises in the world, caused by war, terrorism, ethnic cleansing, political nationalism, ever increasing population, resource distribution in the world, and climate change. Therefore the title of this year’s conference appropriately reads: MIGRATION, REFUGEES, AND PATTERNS.

The PUARL Conferences provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from a variety of fields, as well as for a broader public, to come together to present and discuss areas of research and application in:

- Architecture, Urbanism, and Regional Development
- Design, Media, Arts, and Information Technology
- Pedagogy, Education, and Learning
- Social Activism, Social Innovation, and Grassroots Movements
- Everyday Applications and Specific Interest

These varied disciplines and their cooperation together are held together by the belief in the improvement of society and the environment through research in and application of the methodology of patterns and pattern language as a way of improving buildings, the urban structure and the environment, as well as creating positive societal change and, in general, opening up new ways of humanizing the world.

We therefore intend to add up to one additional day to the exploration andadvancement of pattern language development between the different disciplines, with the intention to find more common ground and development for the future. One special event of this kind is the parallel conference of the Pattern Language of Programs (PLoP) (http://www.hillside.net/plop/2018/) with overlapping keynotes and sessions at the University of Oregon in Portland.

MIGRATION, REFUGEES, AND PATTERNS
This year we are looking at the large emerging problem of forced migration, refugees, place and displacement, and arrival city and country. The United Nations estimates that there are about 250 million migrants in the world, of which more than 65 million people are refugees (United Nations, 2015). This means that one in every 113 people alive today are now displaced by war, violence, and persecution (UNHCR, 2017). In Europe, refugee arrivals continue at crisis levels, particularly in Germany, where more than 435,000 asylum seekers arrived in the first half of 2016 alone (UNHCR, 2016). These forced migrants joined the nearly one million earlier arrivals to Germany in 2015, most still in limbo awaiting asylum approval or appeals. In the United States and in an ever-growing number of countries, migration issues are divisive and at the fore of public debate and protest. How the world responds to this global crisis will arguably impact the trajectory of peace and well-being on this planet for generations to come.

Patterns and Pattern Languages
We are looking at Patterns and Pattern Languages as a unifying method and approach in our various fields and interdisciplinary work, research, design, and creative work. Patterns and pattern languages are viewed as a potential vehicle of improvement and change, opening up new ways of forming frameworks and particular solutions to big problems that we face in today’s world. This approach is first understood as a direct application to the migration and refugee main topic in various keynotes and research paper presentations in this conference.

Second, the pattern language approach itself is under development and investigation in various disciplines and professions, including technically, digitally, and also how well it can connect these different disciplines in various ways with its methodology. But in this conference we want to take some time and look in to its larger philosophical potential and its root of practical and pragmatic idealism and ethos to actually help to solve larger problems in the world. As Wolfgang Stark would put it, “Now we know that we all work with patterns; next we would like to know what we can do with this knowledge together.” Here we will investigate this potential with a keynote, a round table discussion, paper contributions, and a workshop. This work can be prepared by an initial group of attentive people from the program committee, joined by other interested participants.

Sub-Themes – Call for Contributions
Sub-themes in this conference may deal with particular aspects of migration and refugees, and also how patterns can be used in solving some of the related problems of refugees. In addition, patterns and pattern languages may also be discussed in their different forms of applications in particular fields, and interdisciplinary topics, and with regard to the need for its own development and future application and problem solving. Research papers and other contributions are welcome in the following areas:

- The Generative City and Urban Regeneration
- World-wide Migration
- Architecture, Urban Design, and Displacement
- The City of Social Change and Refugee Arrival
- Arrival City for Migrants and Refugees
- Refugee Integration Case Studies
- Patterns for Migrants and Refugees
- The Future of Pattern Language
- Open Topic
