Planning and new interventions in historical, urban and rural environments are an important part of the planning process that requires the development of appropriate methods along with the application of spe-cial knowledge and approaches. Spatial development must recognize the existing layers of history, not only by analyzing and recording them, but also by develop-ing methods for their evaluation and inclusion into the development of the area. Spatial planning documenta-tion for areas rich in heritage sites requires adjustment/ change of existing spatial planning methods and mod-els, as well as of the legislative framework. Technologi-cal and infrastructure systems in such a spatial context also require a di ff  erent technical approach. The questions that arise are: How can we plan con-temporary interventions in historical environments in a functional and well-arranged manner? What are the preferred methods and sustainable scenarios?Cultural and historical environment can be found all around us but in order to understand it and let it become the development incentive, we need to learn how to interpret it and create attitudes toward it via special forms of education and promotion. Rural heritage, heritage of small towns, military and vernacular architecture, as well as all other types of heritage, are important components of the broader spatial con-text. In the urban environment, we observe cultural heritage by interpreting and experiencing the urban fabric through the urban morphology of historical sites, whereas in landscape we observe it in preserved land-scape patterns as testimonies to man’s presence in the area.The questions are: Which elements of landscape and urban identity can become bearers of new develop-ment? What are the relevant factors and applicable cri-teria, methods and models?           Development based on cultural and historical heritage requires the use of new tools and new methods in cre-ating development scenarios. The saying “Heritage as a resource for economic development” is very wide-spread, however, good examples of it are rare. Suc-cessful projects imply new approaches in whereby the architectural and planning section is only one part of a bigger project. There are calls for new kinds of collabo-ration and adjustments to project, organizational and fi -nancial frameworks. A special form of re fl ection on the broader context of heritage can be seen in high-quality projects, which provide thematic networking and de-velopment of new visions and scenarios for heritage development incorporated into international project collaboration. The questions are: What are the acceptable/sustaina-ble development models based on cultural and historic heritage, especially in the context of space capacity? Which urban and architectural criteria and methods are important to ensure design and construction excel-lence on heritage sites?       |       |   | Poster presentation aims to emphasize presentation of speci fi c research and good practice examples on restoring the historic heritage, the planning in historic context, and economic use of historic heritage in successful development projects.The selected projects will be exhibited on posters during the conference and will be published in digital proceedings (on  ). A selection of them will also be presented orally at the conference.    |          /         The Heritage Urbanism  project is based on the premise that heritage must not only be a historic monument (pro-tected object), but also an active factor (creative entity) in contemporary life and cultural, social, economic, and spatial development of a community. Recognizing the importance of basic cultural and historic research that leads to better understanding of cultural heritage, as well as its spatial context, the conference will cover three major paper topics focused on the following guidelines:   criteria, methods, models and scenarios of revitalization and enhancement of cultural heritage     y interventions that turn cultural heritage into an essential local development factor.      The research project Heritage Urbanism  (  ) explores the cultural/architectural heritage that, despite o ffi cial conservation e ff  orts, is in poor condition and in the state of decay, without a well-de fi ned sustainable use and is not su ffi ciently included in town and village life. The project aims to determine spatial/urban and other criteria, meth-ods and models for revitalization and new interventions in the immediate and surrounding area of cultural heritage, which can contribute to its enhancement.Respecting the fact that many cultural and historic herit-age sites are threatened, the   project has the follow-ing goals:  To preserve cultural heritage – as the art of inheritance or the art of creating new heritage  To acknowledge the value and potential of urban heritage – initiator and active participant in the socio-cultural, economic and tourism growth  To enhance the condition of the urban heritage – searching for causes and reasons for dilapidation and opportunities for enhancement  To establish the conservation model and creative urban heritage use – active space involved in contemporary life  To promote the creative urban heritage use– spatial criteria, methods, models and scenarios for its enhancement  The quality of a project that will start the creation act – an important contribution to the heritage enhancement.Project research topics are classi fi ed into four themes/ modules:  . Heritage within Landscape – Cultural Landscape as Heritage;  . Heritage within the Urban Environment – City as Cultural Heritage;  . Experience of the Urban Environment – City as an Experience;  . Urban Planning Normative and Legal Aspects of Cultural Heritage Sites. Research is conducted in several directions:  spatial and urban planning  (involvement of heritage in urban and ru-ral areas daily life), landscape  (conservation and enhance-ment of landscape values, and environmental and visual experiences), architectural  (achievement of excellence in new/contemporary building on heritage sites), cultural   and historic (acknowledgement of heritage identity val-ues), economic  (sustainability of heritage) and others.        The goal is to approach cultural heritage as an active re-source in contemporary life and an initiator of sustainable development through multi-disciplinary and multi-region-al participation. In addition to theoretical models that will help in developing the criteria, methods and scenarios for the revitalization of cultural heritage, illustrative examples from Croatia, Europe and the rest of the world are also welcome – especially those serving as models for revital-ization and new interventions in the immediate and sur-rounding area of cultural heritage sites. Cultural heritage is observed in spatial context – from landscape and histor-ical parts of towns/settlements to individual architectural complexes and buildings with their surrounding urban and rural environment. The goal is to answer the questions – how can policies, ap-proaches, methods, theoretical models and conservation practice and enhancement of cultural heritage sites be ori-ented towards and included within spatial and economic development, taking into account cultural and historical, spatial and environmental, as well as social traits of a spe-ci fi c area?    |               : title, abstract in Croatian or English (maximum 2000 characters with spaces), conference topic (1, 2 or 3), name and surname, institution/company and contact information of all authors.The application has to be submitted using the attached form by 15 January 2015  to the following e-mail ad-dress: heru.conference@gmail.com Upon reviewing all submitted abstracts the authors will be informed of the paper acceptance and will re-ceive detailed guidelines for submitting a full paper.             : abstract in Croatian or English labeled “poster” (maxi-mum 2000 characters with spaces), conference topic (1, 2 or 3), several illustrations, name and surname, insti-tution/company and contact information of all authors.The application has to be submitted using the attached form by 15 January 2015  to the following e-mail ad-dress: heru.conference@gmail.com Upon reviewing all submitted posters the authors will be informed of the poster acceptance and will receive detailed guidelines for submitting full poster presentations.   until 15 January 2015 until 9 February 2015 until 27 April 2015until 3 June 2015until 1 July 2015 Abstract submission Feedback on acceptance Final version of a full paper Final version of a poster Early bird rates    |   O ffi cial languages of the conference are English and Croatian.        All papers will be peer reviewed.
