Approximately 15 innovative papers are sought for sessions on the interrelated phenomena of segregation, housing and neighborhood attainment, residential mobility, and community change. Contributions may be theoretical, empirical, or policy-oriented and can focus on trends or current circumstances. We also welcome research representing a variety of methodological styles and set in contexts ranging from metropolitan to rural. The conference format will provide ample opportunities for interaction among attendees.
